BOTH HANSON AND HINCH KNEW IT
OUR DEPT.OF IMMIGRATION “BLEW IT”
HOORAY FOR HANSON, HOORAY FOR HINCH

SO, HOORAY FOR HANSON, HOORAY FOR HINCH
THEY STAND THEIR GROUND & WON’T GIVE AN INCH
I DO SUPPORT THEM A HUNDRED PERCENT
I’VE NOT ONLY “BEEN THERE”, I’VE GOT UP & WENT.!
There is “another” famous quote that says “Women first, even to the gallows” and this shows in what could quite possibly been another “title” for this article of mine, so let us now “say it again” & begin with “Hooray for Hanson”, Pauline, that is. Everyone knows what happened the first time, about twenty years ago.
She was kicked out of Parliment because of what could have well been a misguided, inexperienced “quote” about “ASIANS” taking over this Country. I admit, quite candidly, that I really do not know too much about other Asians, but I do know that I am one too, and proudly so. Everyone should also know that while Pauline Hanson was still but a gleam in her great grandfather’s eye, there was a “Country-Town” in Australia, NAMED afteran elderly gentleman who had arrived here eons ago, wandered up & down a street saying “MATA BADAGINI” ( I am hungry) .
A “Cow-cocky” felt some sympathy for this Asian from Ceylon (at the time) , handed him some “damper” & then decided to call the “area” Badagini” Pauline Hanson did not know any of this. Much much later, she did notice, while selling fish n chips, that there were many more Asians coming to her shop than “Bluies”(red-headed Aussies) , & while she did not dislike those who were actually giving her more business, she did get a little worried that perhaps the bloody place was getting over-run with all these people who looked so much like one another.
When we Burghers emigrated to Australia en-masse from Ceylon during the 50s & 60s, most of us, myself included were very sorry & upset about the fact that we were practically forced to leave our Motherland, but, at the same time happy & appreciative that we were accepted into this huge Island Continent. Most of us also decided to accept our Australian (Aussie) Citizenship proudly, fight for our new Country if we had to, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, assimilate. This Land took us in, and it does nor matter who we were, Burghers, Sinhalese, Tamils, WHOEVER!, we were all in Australia now, and as far as I am concerned, all of us should now be proud LANKAN/AUSTRALIANS.
There is another saying that tells us that there are THOSE who, given an inch, want to take a mile. While we should NEVER forget the Country in which we were born,even try to remember the main language of that Country as much as possible because undoubtedly, it will be “just a memory” to future generations,Migrants should send their children to Aussie schools in order that they be taught the Australian way of life.
Australia does not forbid ANYONE to follow their own Culture, Religon, Customs or Laws. This is why OZ. is widely known as a truly multicultural Country, BUT don’t overdo it. DO NOT TRY TO FORCE “YOUR WAYS” ON EVERYBODY ELSE IN THIS COUNTRY (including the Australians) You have been given an inch, don’t try to take a furlong. Nobody got you by the scruff of your neck and “forced” you into THIS COUNTRY.
Pauline Hanson, take a bow. IT IS PEOPLE SUCH AS YOURSELF, JACQUI LAMBIE, DERRYN HINCH & one or two others, who will give this great Country a fresh start. Australians cannot go to Europe, Asia, China or anywhere and try to teach THEIR grandmothers’ how to “suck eggs”.Respect MUST be shown to the LAWS of each & every different Land, Australia included!.
Break any law in Indonesia & you end up in a.prison that IS a prison. Break the law in Australia and you end up in a prison that is more like one of Indonesia’s five – star hotels. Where would you rather break the law!?
If you go to Sri Lanka, take your shoes OFF before you enter a Buddhist temple! That is the LAW there and we have to obey it. Here, in Australia, young louts will not only go into a Church with their shoes on, they will then bash the Clergy, steal the “collection” tray (with the money), if possible, to have a bit of “ice” before they get home &, if unsuccessful and they get caught, they will have a very good chance of of having some ice in prison with their coke!.What is happening here?!, Why do we have to have “different schools” for each different “religon” in the Country? Any family coming to Australia of their own volition, should send their children to AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS .LEARN to be an Australian.You are not in Timbuctoo any longer.Keep your “Culture”, Religon & habits. Nobody wants you to CHANGE into a “DINKUM AUSSIE” overnight.
Because this Country is so multicultural now, and fast becoming even MORE MULTI CULTURAL, Australia permits other religons to build their places of worship & respects fully the RIGHT OF WORSHIP, BUT, as I have said before, just because you have been ” given a metre”, don’t try to “take a kilometre”! DON’T PUSH IT!!.
If we go to another Country, wear a “hood” & amble around, it won’t be too long before we are “arrested” and locked up. Why should’nt Australians be allowed to see the pretty face of ANY WOMAN living here.?. If they are ugly, well maybe it does’nt matter. IDENTITY of any resident of a Country is paramount. Hide your face & take the consequences. See what happened to NED KELLY? Even an “iron mask” did not save him.
Australia should permit “Multiculture” only to a certain extent. Multiculture is good in the fact that it makes any Country progress. We ” live & learn”.
However, “TOO MUCH OF ANYTHING IS GOOD FOR NOTHING”. Multiculturalists SOMETIMES seem to want to “take-over” the Country which has given them succour. This must not be allowed to happen.What occured in Sri Lanka from 500 B.C. occured in Australia many thousands of years later. Lanka was once part of India. Then, at the bottom end, more toward the South-West corner, the Indian Ocean decided to have a little bit of a “slit” & the slit was what was later named the “Palk Strait”. It was across this little “break” (I’m tired of calling it a “slit”), that a man named “Vijaya” brought his followers who eventually called themselves the Sinhalese because, as the story goes, Vijaya & his clan were supposef to be direct descendants of a Lion & Lioness, “Kings of the jungle” or ” SINHAYA” the Sinhalese word for Lion. These Sinhalese also called themselves the “Lion-Race”& came across to this tiny Island Paradise and took it over from the “Veddhas” who were, in fact, the original owners of what was to finally become Sri Lanka..
History repeated itself EONS later and because all the jails in Britain were getting overcrowded, the “big brass” over there decided to send some of these roughnecks over to AUSTRALIA, a Country that had been conveniently “discovered” for that specific purpose (it seems). These English convicts came, saw & conquered the Aboriginal hunters & gatherers who were, like the Veddhas, the Original OWNERS of the Land.
Finally, I say “Hooray for Hinch” because he WILL make a difference as far as these pathetic paedophiles are concerned. For some silly reason, these S.O.B’s
are permitted to hide their ugly mugs from the public even AFTER they have been “caught”, “tried” & convicted for crimes that truly earn them the “title” SCUM OF THE EARTH”. Derryn goes about his new job with a vengence. He was always determined to expose these “sorry excuses” for human beings & now he can do just that. For this I say “good on you mate”.
Keep it up, like the good Mayor of Joondalup.
