Malcolm Turnbull reveals tough new citizenship crackdown

Two days ago, I was somewhat cynical of Malcolm Turnbull’s proposed changes to the 457 visa program, with the move resembling a short-term political stunt. Regardless, Turnbull’s ambition to establish himself as an ‘Australia First’ Prime Minister has continued, with his government proposing tougher citizenship tests for aspiring migrants, which would more stringently assess English competency and the… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull reveals tough new citizenship crackdown

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to slash 457 visas

Yesterday, Malcolm Turnbull announced that he would be cutting the 457 visa program, which provides Australian residency for some 100 000 foreigners. According to our Prime Minister, this decision was motivated by a desire to place ‘Australians first’. But knowing Turnbull’s record of supporting left leaning policy and back pedaling, I doubt the sincerity of these newfound… Continue reading Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to slash 457 visas

PM Malcolm Turnbull’s lack of guts is heart of his problem

It is important for all politicians to seek appeal among traditionally ‘Left’ and ‘Right’ voters in order to achieve electoral success. However, voters also crave decisiveness, which Malcolm Turnbull woefully lacks. “PM Malcolm Turnbull’s lack of guts is heart of his problem”, Herald Sun, March 11, 2017: THIS will truly be the winter of Malcolm… Continue reading PM Malcolm Turnbull’s lack of guts is heart of his problem

Marise Payne to meet with General Mattis?

In fairness to Marise Payne, she may be a lovely person, and provide good company in private. But this non- imposing woman, who was confused last year about the role of her job, appears set to meet with the legendary US Secretary of Defense, General James ‘Maddog’ Mattis. From all that we have heard from President Trump,… Continue reading Marise Payne to meet with General Mattis?

Malcolm Turnbull destroys Bill Shorten

As I’ve made clear in the past, I’m no huge fan of Malcolm Turnbull, and I lost major interest in the Liberal party after he betrayed Tony Abbott to become Prime Minister. However, Turnbull’s demolition job of Shorten is not only entertaining, but when considering the union- controlled, parasitic, disconnected nature of the Labor party, he… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull destroys Bill Shorten

Trade is about more than jobs

Despite Donald Trump withdrawing from the TPP via executive order, Malcolm Turnbull has desperately attempted to salvage the trade deal. At one point, Turnbull even proposed that China could join the TPP, before Japan slapped down this foolish suggestion. In arguing for a revised TPP, Malcolm Turnbull has repeatedly justified these attempts with claims that a… Continue reading Trade is about more than jobs

The gradual relinquishing of our national sovereignty

Australia’s basic democratic principles and culture, were forged both internally and from the influences of Britain. Moreover, when Australia breached the civil rights of Aboriginals or committed other wrongdoings, it was Australians who converged to remedy the problems, not foreign bodies or international organisations. Basically, Australia was made great because of Australian people and the well-… Continue reading The gradual relinquishing of our national sovereignty
