Two news items recently grabbed my attention.
The first was our fearless leader, ScoMo, pronouncing ‘he’s heard us loud and clear’ that there are too many people. Finally, a politician in power, spruiking something other than ‘Jobs & Growth’.
He continued on, how schools, hospitals and roads are all overloaded. I do not know one person who wants ‘Big Australia’.
But then Adam Bandt, Melbourne Greens, trumpets that rather than cut immigration, ScoMo should build more roads, schools and hospitals. OMG! No wonder people like me are leaving the Greens!
The next news item was regarding Victorian Forests’ illegal logging and decimation of certain state forests. This sensitive and valuable habitat supports the critically endangered Leadbeatters Possum: the state emblem of Victoria, Adam Bandt’s home state.
What’s Mr Bandt to say on the subject? Zip, zilch, nada.
I can no longer support the Greens. I’ve joined Sustainable Australia, whose motto is ‘Better, Not Bigger’ and has called for a reduction in immigration. Calling for a cut in immigration does not make me a racist. They are two separate subjects!
You can expect many more ‘West Byrons’ as the hordes continue to vacate the over-populated cities. Australia’s population rose by 50 per cent since 2000! Are you okay with that?
