Australia will learn the hard way, by taking in millions of tamils you soon will have to add tamil as a national language, change street names and expect to create a separate state from them...

Kindness and compassion have a place in society but blind ignorance will bring misery, lets hope your politicians wise up soon.

Just another point -

Sri Lanka tamil population as of 2006 2.2 million

Global tamil asylum seekers - 3+ million

remaining tamils in Sri Lanka as of 2012- 2.2 million - go figure

I hear a lot of shit thrown at the ALP, and yes they have a lot to answer for, and yes I hate the greens as much as anyone. But don't forget that the liberals were letting them in too, and in one term almost destroyed 200 years of hard won workers rights.

This country is run by a two party system and both parties are pretty much the same. Gutless! It seems to me that they'll bend over backwards to avoid offending everyone except the working, tax paying minority.

But it probably won't matter much as in a few years we'll be controlled by a turbin wearing psychopath and then some other country will be bitching about the boats leaving here.

Boat deaths distressing - Gillard

"Prime Minister Julia Gillard has described the deaths of two asylum seekers, one a child, near Christmas Island as incredibly distressing.

The bodies of a young boy and a woman in her 30s were recovered from the sea when the boat they were travelling to Australia on capsized yesterday."

Sarrrrrrrk shiiiiit. I hope they were sand n!g-g@rs.

"But she's blamed the opposition and the Greens for failing to support government policy and says the obligation lies with them to put the national interest first."

This woman is a Class A cvnt. She deserves to be hung, for treason.

without getting emotional about this issue: as a gift to indonesia, give them (ie, hand over sovereignty) of christmas island, ashmore reef and cocos islands. now, once indonesia owns these islands, the "regugees/asylum seekers" get nowhere by putting into these places on their journey. the rest that make it to mainland australaia: just give them visa application forms and ship them home.(i really love the news about those that return or have not made the journey (yet) where it is said they are living in danger of their life for 4 or 5 years...so? this means they are not dead, poor syrians need our help more than sirilanken cricket players.
