Kingswood’s Jim Green says Indonesia has an ulterior motive for allowing people smuggling to originate in that country.
THERE has been much angst and hand-wringing by our politicians over the last week, with both main stream parties blaming each other over the unfortunate deaths as a result of the capsizing of boats carrying “refugees”.
“Tunnel vision” Tony states that the only way to stop the boats is for the government to adopt the “Howard” solution (which the High Court had earlier ruled illegal). The problem with Nauru or PNG is that 99 per cent of the “refugees” still finished up in Australia. So this will not stop the boats.
As for the government’s idea of Malaysia – as soon as the first 400 are sent then it’s open slather again.
The Greens’ solution of welcoming thousands of illegals is definitely not the answer.
The answer lies with the Indonesian government that allows thousands of Middle Eastern peoples (who incidentally, are of a particular faith) who land at Denpassar with no visa, no return ticket, but plenty of money.
These people are then mysteriously spirited from the airport, placed in hotels or buildings that are invisible to government authorities, ferried to fishing villages by magical buses and then manage to board rickety boats to sail south (on the way they get rid of any identification, so we will only have their word when we ultimately have to rescue them).
Consider this, the average cost to these people for the Indonesian part of their journey is $10,000, therefore based only on the last two failed journeys, someone in Indonesia is getting the lion’s share of $3,500,000.
Therefore the Australian government should immediately cancel all aid or assistance to Indonesia until it addresses the problem.
If a person was a cynic one could be forgiven for thinking that the Indonesian government is deliberately sending on these “refugees” to not only populate this vast empty country but to change its religious dynamics.
