Why no one likes Australia anymore

Aug 14, 2009 Full story: AdelaideNow... 328

TIMES are tough, but Australia is really getting it in the neck. But this is the self-styled Land of Wonder we're talking about here, where sitting on a desert island blogging about the Great Barrier Reef is deemed to be the best job in the world.

Was Australia closer in distance to Europe and North America in the 1980’s when we had a phenomenal surge in the number of tourists visiting Australia ? No -- so distance is not an issue here – is it ? Were prices in Australia relatively cheaper in the 1980’s ? No -- so high costs in Australia are not an issue here either – are they ? What then could be hindering people from around the world to select Australia as a holiday destination ?

Is it accurate to say that Australia is a racist country and what tourists see as repulsive about Australians now is the attitude of one specific segment of the Australian population ? To be accurate, we could perhaps bluntly say (but with the risk of offending people who belong to that particular demographic segment of the population who have migrated to Australia from Ireland during the potato famine) that their arrogance to think that they are “More Australian” than any other Australian who has migrated to Australia from other countries, is destroying all the good work done in the past by the Australian Tourism Commission.

We could also perhaps say bluntly, that thanks to the arrogance of these Irish expatriates living in Australia, the world now sees Australians as a bunch of congenital liars and thieves. It seems that the International community does not dislike Australia per say, but only dislikes the new Australia which has been substituted for the old.

Is it not part of the “Australian Culture”(but meaning only the culture that belongs to that particular demographic segment of the population) to always deny the credit owing to the non Irish Australians living in Australia who contribute more towards improving Australian economic conditions than all these Irish expatriates put together ? These pseudo “More Australians” have a tendency to substitute the identity of these worthy and extremely productive people with people from their own demographic segment -- even though these pseudo “More Australians” are people who are not only unrefined and tasteless by nature, but who are also totally void of the kind of artistic talent that is required to produce a work of art that could sell Australia as a tourist destination overseas.

Yes I tend to agree that it is precisely this narcissism on the part of this particular demographic segment of the population that is stopping International tourists coming to Australia. Wake up to yourself Australia – give credit where it is due and save your companies from going broke -- and by doing so, retain your jobs instead of joining the dole queue !

The Australian government is trying to pass new laws to stop the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission from telling detained illegal immigrants about their rights. Currently, the HREOC delivers sealed envelopes to detained illegal immigrants spelling out their rights, including the right to request an attorney. By law, illegal immigrants can gain access to a lawyer only if they make a specific request.

multiculturalism is ruining australia and friend s overseas in europe have told me our governments immigration policy is crazy and I agree. australia was much better when it was just european americas and east asian immigration. since our government started letting in the unwelcome muslims, africans and south asian s its got steadily worse here. Our government has lost the plot in this area.

try our governments immigration policy which is letting in thousands of unwanted races from dangerous and violent muslim and african and south asian countries for starters. 2, there is belt tightening happening in some western countries due to the global economic recession so some people hold back on holiday spending due to eonomic uncertainties about there future.. also a few people were freaked out by the heavily media coveraged horrific plane explosion over the atlantic of jumbo flying form brazil to france noone wants to be in a plane that crashes.. there has been a reduction in tourism in many countries across europe asia,oceania and the americas due to these various reasons
