No detention if u gotz skillz

Wait wait… let me get this straight – we get all these refugees, give them the old ALP/Liberal mandatory detention, with the possibility of indefinite detention (thanks Keating), breach their human rights, lock up children, etc – because they might be dangerous.

And then some doctors imported from countries which, for some odd reason, don’t have as many doctors as they need, turn out to be dangerous?

Perhaps WE (we, as in: Howard) decide which refugees come to this country, and the circumstances in which they come, but it’s the business lobby that decides which skilled migrants come.

Don’t expect skilled guest workers to be holed up in a detention facility for years on end, it’s not going to happen.

A bleeding man comes, they chuck him in a cell and check his accent.
A skilled man comes, they chuck him a job and check his skills.

There will be no rigorous terrorism-test, they rely on, and love exploiting these people. The Howard government’s commitment to protecting us from terrorism is not greater than it’s commitment to opening Australia’s doors to workers so grateful for the opportunity to be here that they’ll work their fingers to the bone under shit conditions.

If a terrorist wants to enter Australia, they need only collect a few dollars or a few skills – they’re not going to jump on a boat. Lock up all immigrants and refugees if that’s your solution to the problem, or else don’t lock them up at all.

Because the disgusting contradiction just reared its fucking head - and Howard's shame is laid bare. Actually, come to think of it – this contradiction was pointed out by a Senator, around about the same time the Border Protection Bill got bi-partisan support, can’t remember his name though, Bob something.

C'mon Larry, you should know by now the way the law applies in Australia - if Big Business wants it, it will be done. If big business doesn't or jsut can't give a shit, and the suffering of others be exploited to all the bigots and xenophobes out there, then it will be done also. The 2 rules:

1. Do whatever the people with the money want
2. Do whatever is necessary to stay in power

As for the ALP supporting things like this, well they are tweedle-dumb to the Libs Tweedle even dumber. Useless dicks they are.
