I saw a guy selling units north of Brissy to a Singapore family & 1 of things that got me was he how they were heavily advertising this place in Singapore with the notion that at least 40% would only be sold to singaporeans & with such a large number of them in business in the area they would all have good job prospects for them & their kids as their fellow countrymen would hire them over an Aussie any day, and how they could make it just like their little Singapore not have to worry about english or differant food. That disgusted me to no end as does the one sided media portrayal of racism & refugees in this country.
You sure you saw and heard that? I bet that guy is a very poor salesman not understanding his target customers at all.
Just to clarify English is the 1st language in Singapore and Singaporeans use it daily to communicate. All textbooks in Singapore schools are in English. A 2nd language is taught and everyone is free to choose from Chinese, Malay or Tamil as Singapore is a multicultural nation mainly of Chinese/Malay/Indian races. You can even choose a 3rd language if you want to like Spanish, German, French, etc. In fact one of the reasons Singaporeans choose to migrate to Australia is because English is commonly spoken. Other reason is the proximity to Singapore.
As for food, Singapore has about 3.5 million citizens mainly of the races I mentioned above plus 1.5 million foreigners and permanant residents from all over the world; as such you can find all sorts of food in Singapore. Yes even Western crusine that you have in Australia, it can be found everywhere on the little island.
Perhaps the salesman was confused between Singapore and China.

In Australia unemployment is on the Rise, and "Working Tourists" are dragging down our wages. I see it more often by the day, there is less and less secure long term work. Greedy Mega-Corporations are hiring backpacker tourists on a "Working Holiday" for a fraction of what "Aussies" would get paid. The tourists all squeeze into cheap accomadation (up to 15 people in a single bedroom apartment) to save their stolen Aussie wages.

Mickierocksman , I return to you all of your insults with interest
I have been told personally by many British and American Anglo-Saxon / Caucasians that their applications to migrate to Australia have been rejected.

Tell me, why can't these people be helped in their own country? by err, not dropping bombs on them as a starting point? surely we could better help them and help MORE of them, by starting here? do they really need to be imported over here, where they suddenly need brand name clothing and big screen tv's as part of their lives?

Economic principle: Capitalism depends upon unemployment.
Research this. It's pretty self evident as well. Common sense. The more that want the less you need give.
And conversely - the less that want - the more you must pay.
Welcome To Capitalism!
Your gripes should not be with the people taking the low paying jobs. Your gripes should be directed at the 'system' that perpetuates this scramble for money.

And people wonder why Australia has a world-wide reputation for being an incredibly racist place. Ladies and gentlemen, exhibit A, this thread. Obviously, you can't paint all Aussies with the same brush, but where theres smoke theres fire.
Does the hostility of your average Australian white trash have anything to do with the hostility of the country they live in? 90 per cent of animals in Australia are actively trying to kill you, and when you live in that environment all your life I wonder if it does something to your brain.

That's a better way of doing it, I was getting a headache typing it let alone reading it.
Depends which country you’re talking about? Travel to any country, stay at a hotel and they feel obliged to tell you where to hang out with the x-pats, me, I do that sometimes, but I would rather spend time with the locals.
A. So are there whole suburbs in china other places that are called Aussie town and everything is written in English or just bars Aussies hang at? I prefer locals too.
That would be your name or maybe the date. I don’t get freebies, I work for a living and pay taxes.
A. Unless you are Aboriginal or TI.
Ummm, no, I like football, BBQ’s, freedom and beer. I could add the beach and the bush as well if you like? What could you add as your Aussie culture?
A. They are a huge part of our culture so yes it is nice to have them added, as well as giving someone a fair go, standing by your mates, a good lamington or pav from the CWA, laid back larican attitude etc.
Why are my tax $ spent on functions for female Muslims only? Ever walk through an ethnic suburb at night with ya girl?
That is a question for you to ask your government, maybe they had a reason? I am at home in any suburb; I am not frightened when I walk any street for any reason.
A. You asked the Q now u want me to direct my answers to "OUR" gov, are u Ozzy? There are many places where you would quickly learn to fear walking there the hard way, heaven forbid if u were naive enough to take a nice white girl with u.
Being from the shire, I can tell you it was a bunch of racists trying to get rid of a certain group of people from a beach that they believe that they own or have a sole right to use - which they don't.
A. Had nothing to do with the Muslim community constantly harassing you girls who had every right to be there as well. How old was the volunteer life guard they kicked the crap out of for trying to help 1 of those girls. Are you going to tell me with a straight face the group running round saying " I have never seen so many guns pointed at people since beirut" weren't the problem? Nice of them to crawl out of hiding after dark & smash a bunch of innocent peoples property but I guess that's how they roll.
[If you could only help 1 out of 2 people do u help the 1 that would do the same for you or spit in your face?]
I would try and help both equally, it is better to show compassion to an aggressor - that way they may just learn tolerance.
A. Now try and answer the Q there are to many to help everyone "Fact" and you only get to pick 1, why do you choose the criminal over the guy who spent 5 patient years in hell trying to do the right thing.
Religion (any religion) does not have a place in our schools, I also think that religion no longer has a place in society as a whole. Religion is the biggest killer of man in known history, the second on that list is racism.
A. Your entitled to your opinion but you touched on culture earlier & Aussie Christmas songs at Christmas time was part of our culture & really had little to do with religion, who are you or immigrants to want that taken away from us.
Do you tell Muslims that they should not be teaching the Koran & such in their own schools? Would you go to other countries & demand they change for you.
What has or will it become?
A. turn on your tv u might see Indians rioting throwing petrol bombs and rocks at police in the street, Violence between ethnic groups at soccer matches cause they can't leave their trouble back where they ran from, Synagogues attacked, Clerics preaching rape & murder I could go on.
Unfortunately, some people are not as smart as you, some people without education can barely speak their own language, let along use another. I believe that immigrants do try and learn English, I know of one Italian born now Australian mother (70 years old) she has been here for 50 years and still finds it hard, she is a simple woman, not smart, but she does try (and I still can’t understand her)
A. 99% should have basic oral skills in 12mths, "if they try or are allowed"
No, not endorsing it, I just can’t answer that question. If the government accepts money from potential immigrants and puts one in front of another – then it is wrong, you need to ask them why they do that.
A. You were endorsing taking criminals over people who did the right thing, please show me where boat people pay the Gov to cue jump.
