True blue Australian Values; What are they?

It used to be a thorough understanding of cricket together with compulsory viewing by all migrants of Phar Lap’s ( a famous race horse) pickled heart in a glass jar and Bradman’s cricket paraphernalia. Together with a clear understanding and pronunciation of ‘My Bloody oath.’

This has now changed! These are our new Australian Values!

    We came here in 1956 with limited English language skills. According to the new ‘Australian value’ requirements for immigrants, we would be knocked back for citizenship.

    The migrants from today have to also undergo tests for family violence and pledge respect for women. What about the existing Australians? Domestic violence is very high in Australia. Will true blue Australians be deported if found guilty of crime and violence or does this test only apply to incoming migrants?

    Frank Lowy, One of Australia’s most successful entrepreneur could not speak a word of English after arrival. Today his businesses employ thousands of people.

    I think our Australian PM Turnbull, is taking a leaf out of Trump’s book. A purveyor and nurturer of xenophobia while stirring up discontent.

      My Grandmother arrived here after WW1 with the extended family bought here from village where they came from. Part of that sponsoring was to assimilate. Easier said for some than others WW2 came and failing to take citizenship meant some were interned as enemy aliens. My grandfather who fought in WW1 tried to enlist for WW2 but was too old. For them though there was discrimination along ethnic and religious lines.

      Now Gerard, my mother’s side has been here since the 1840’s and probably longer. I have a southern European surname and the crap I put up with growing up, mostly from 10 pound poms and some others who came here as migrants was something else. My children saw none of this. Who you were, where you came from etc wasn’t important to this generation.

      A more caring society, well I’m inclined to agree with you but I think that can be subjective.

      I speak with our local fruit shop owner, all the time. He employed our youngest last year, his father died last month, arrived here after WW2 spoke no English, in fact he died illiterate. But worked hard owned businesses bought up a family that contributes, like countless thousands of similar people. Under that skid mark on the bedsheets of history Dutton, he wouldn’t have gained entry, nor would countless others.

      To think that Turnbull could be rolled and this clown could take is place soon. Frightening!

        Yes, Algy. For Dutton to become PM is frightening. Did you see him on ABC Sunday ‘The Insiders’ how he tried to again put the blame of unrest on Manus Island onto the refugees?

        Barry Cassidy at least showed him up for what he is, a truly nasty piece of work.

        I know that in the fifties and sixties prejudice against southern European migrants was rife as well. We were as racist as you could possible get with the White Australian Policy firmly in place.

        But, let us at least rejoice that in France sanity is prevailing. I have no doubt that Le Pen will not become France’s new president.

        Vive La France encore!

        I did see Dumbo on Insiders. What a pathetic excuse he was. Caught out lying and continued to do so. Cassidy just carved him up. This grub blamed a 5 year old who is apparently 10 for collecting food. Yet this potato thinks something more sinister happened. By all accounts the reason for the riot was something completely different.

        Yes its good to see that sanity has prevailed in France. The thought of a Fascist leading that country. Lets hope Macron has a comfortable win.

    We have a similar housing/homelessness crisis here in New Zealand. But here the racket seems to be selling off New Zealand homes (particularly in Auckland) to overseas speculators.

      The major cities housing stock is now beyond the reach of most people, except for politicians and wealthy overseas buyers.
      It is no wonder they don’t want to introduce a capital gains tax or stop the negative gearing or introduce an inheritance tax. Even though Australia is desperately short of revenue to fund schools, hospitals etc., this government is promising even bigger tax cuts for the rich which of course, includes themselves.
      It’s all so hopeless. I don’t see Australia ever getting back to what it once used to be. A caring society.

    True and very unique ‘Australian Values.’

    Respect for men women and children. To uphold the law and so much more. Oh yes, a fair go for everyone.

    But not for those on Manus and Nauru.

      Yes, Gerard. But have you ever considered if we let everybody come to Australia on leaky boats? Don’t you know they will take over our suburbs, jobs and women.

      Look at all those that did not drown! We are now spending billions to look after them. It is all their fault for not drowning in the first place.

      They need to be taught a good lesson. If you dare escape the misery in Syria or Iraq and come to Australia we will punish you for ever.
      They are our Australian Values.
