lol it's ironic ya know.
The main reason i replid in your thread is because i know exactly what you mean. Without seeing the budget costings for Centrelink ( Aus Social Sec )
In my local area i see people and refugees that come here because they have nothing or whatever the excuse is and yet a couple months later they are
driving around in the latest model Toyota or mini-van etc. They get social security, tax breaks, jobs, lower interest finance and housing. All the
while our own people are suffering and struggling.
They come with 4+ kids and straight away start being given more money than i earn in 1 week.
Even foreign investment, there are peopel that come here just to buy and then rent out houses and it is they that for the past 5 years in Australia
have been driving up house prices and incresing rental prices.
Yet our government throws money at them, i see gangs of about 10-15 Sudanese youths walking around the streets at night, drinking, chroming and doing
drugs and yet our governments still throw money at them.
Why doesnt my, yours or all the governments that are responcible and '' mature '' look at the government of these countries they are coming from, the
corruption, bad education ,lack of health and on and on...
It's fustrating to say the least and when i see a person that come here as a supposed refugee driving a later model car or taking a job that should
have belonged to someone born here, that has spent their time paying tax and giving back...
I know that might sound unsympathetic or mean but it is the hard truth. Why arent we and our governments focusing on the countries of orgigin and
fixing the problem at its core. Not just throwing aid to corrupt third would governments but actually taking an active role in helping
