Next time you receive your payslip and see that Pay-as-you-go-withholding line item, spare a thought for the 1900 Manus detainees who have just received a $70 million plus costs settlement from the federal government. These poor blighters are here to culturally enrich our nation and it took a court case for us to realise that we should pay them for the privilege!
Even better, law firm (and ambulance chaser satanic spawn) Slater and Gordon were the lawyers for the detainees, and will get to partake in the expected $20 million costs payout.
Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said “To date, Australian taxpayers have paid more than $13.7 billion to clean up Labor’s loss of control of our borders. Today another $90 million was added to that bill”.
Keep paying your taxes Australia! Remember the government and legal system is (not) on the side of the citizens!
Now would be migrants know that not only does Australia offer a comfy, first world welfare state, but they’ll even pay you if the accommodation and lifestyle that they are somehow obligated to provide you indefinitely (until they cave and let you in), isn’t satisfactory!
Please reflect on this level of suicidal altruism when you’re on a hospital waiting list, transiting via chronically poorly funded infrastructure of our nation, or paying oppressive levels of taxation.
The nation and the West more broadly will not survive if this level of insanity is maintained in policy, we are now just waiting for a restoration or a collapse.
