Australia:

Is it time for a debate on the mass immigration ‘Ponzi scheme’?

IT’S the debate we were never allowed to have.

Until relatively recently, Australia’s population grew at a stately pace. There was an influx of European immigration in the mid-1940s, and pause from the mid-1970s, but in the 100 years after Federation in 1901, net overseas migration averaged 70,000 people a year.

Then in the early 2000s, Prime Minister John Howard opened the floodgates. Over the last 12 years, Australia’s annual net overseas migration has tripled from its long-term average to 210,000 people per year.

Our cities are bursting at the seams, roads and services are congested, and house prices are skyrocketing — particularly in Sydney and Melbourne, which attract the lion’s share of new Australians.

Over the last 12 years, Sydney has added 20 per cent to its population, or 800,000 people. Melbourne has added one million people over the same period, or 27 per cent.

According to state government projections, Sydney will add another 1.7 million people over the next 20 years, which works out to 87,000 people a year, or 1650 people per week. Melbourne is forecast to add 97,000 people per year, or around 1870 people per week, for the next 35 years.

“It’s clearly unsustainable,” said Leith van Onselen, chief economist with MacroBusiness. “The problem isn’t that immigration is good or bad, it’s just that the level is far too high for Australia to digest.”


...

Behind the scenes, the “growth lobby” of retailers, the banking sector, the property industry and “erroneously named think tanks” all push the “growth-ist agenda”. “Unfortunately there’s not really anybody on the other side,” he said.

Late last year, high-profile entrepreneur Dick Smith came out in support of Pauline Hanson, warning that Australia would be “destroyed” if One Nation’s immigration policies weren’t taken seriously.

...

The common public argument used to promote mass immigration, particularly by the likes of the United Nations, is the need to replace an “ageing” population. The behind-the-scenes rationale is to artificially boost economic growth numbers.

Both justifications fail to stand up to scrutiny. According to the Productivity Commission, which has debunked the ageing population myth numerous times over the past 15 years, “changes in migration levels ... make little difference to the age structure of the population in the future, with any effect being temporary”.

“The reason is very simple — immigrants grow old,” said Mr van Onselen. “You can bring in a whole bunch of young people now, it will lower the age temporarily, but in 30 years time those young people are old and you have to repeat the same trick all over again. Really it’s just a Ponzi scheme.”

mass immigration ‘Ponzi scheme sounds so much like here. There are some making a fat pile of money and they will destroy our country to get it.

Mass immigration has driven Britain into the economic doldrums. Here's how we fix it


Immigration in general, and EU free movement in particular, was one of the biggest factors behind the Brexit vote. A Brexit without a clear end to free movement in its current form is neither possible nor desirable.

But there are many ways of ending free movement, and if the government plays its cards right it can sharply reduce inflows, especially of unskilled workers, while remaining an open hub economy and country, especially in relation to skilled professionals and students from the EU.
In a report published today for the think tank Policy Exchange, I advocate several steps to achieve this balanced outcome. They include: no automatic right of residence for EU citizens coming in the future; a “light-touch” five year work-permit for future EU professionals to be cleared in less than a month; more restrictive two year permits for unskilled workers with preference for those willing to work...

CALAIS RIOT: Six shot as hundreds of migrants brawl in food handout row

AT LEAST four Calais migrants are fighting for life after being shot when two rival groups clashed in a two-hour running battle after food was handed out at the French port last night, police said.




CALAIS RIOT: Six shot as hundreds of migrants brawl in food handout row

The Open Borders crowd want to let these people into the UK, send them back to Afganistan and Eritrea and be speedy about it. Europe is no place for these type of people.

Italians target immigrants in drive-by shootings in response to the murder of an 18-year-old girl whose body was found dismembered and hidden in two suitcases last Wednesday.

Italian police have arrested a gunman suspected of a carrying out a drive-by shooting spree that targeted African immigrants.

At least six people were wounded in the central town of Macerata.

The suspect, named locally as Luca Traini, 28, had an Italian flag wrapped around his neck when he was detained.

He had taken part in regional elections for the anti-immigration Northern League last year and reportedly made a fascist salute when he was captured.

The mayor had warned people to stay indoors during the incident, which saw shootings across a number of locations.

The victims are being treated in hospital. At least one of them is said to be in a serious condition.

Shots had been fired in the Via Spalato and Via dei Velini parts of town, two key areas in an investigation into the murder of an 18-year-old girl whose body was found dismembered and hidden in two suitcases last Wednesday.

A 29-year-old Nigerian male migrant has been detained over the killing of Pamela Mastropietro.

Several racist comments calling for revenge attacks were posted on the Facebook page of the victim's mother in the run up to Saturday's shootings, Ansa reports.

GERMAN REFUGEE WORKER ADMITS SHE WAS WRONG, PLANS TO MOVE TO POLAND

“It’s too late for Germany”

A refugee worker who once welcomed Angela Merkel’s decision to open Germany’s borders to over a million predominantly Muslim migrants now admits she was wrong and is emigrating to Poland, asserting, “It’s too late for Germany.”

After founding the refugee aid association Working Group Asylum + Human Rights in 2012, Rebecca Sommer was delighted to welcome the deluge of migrants that began arriving in Germany in the second half of 2015.

“At that time I wanted to help everyone and truly believed that all these people were fleeing hell and were in a state of complete distress,” Sommer told Polish weekly Do Rzeczy.

Along with over 300 volunteers, Sommer began providing German language courses to the new arrivals with the aim of helping them integrate into society.

With the initial hope that “their medieval view was going to change with time,” Sommer soon realized that, “Muslim refugees have grown up with values that are totally different, they have undergone brainwashing from childhood on and are indoctrinated by Islam and absolutely do not intend to adopt our values.”

She also observed how the migrants, “regard we infidels with disdain and arrogance,” after they began to refer to her as “the stupid German whore,” a realization that she says has led other refugee volunteers to quit.

Sommer now admits that despite her good intentions, she got it completely wrong and that Muslim migration poses an existential threat to the Germany way of life, a problem that will only be exacerbated by the process of family reunification, where migrants will be able to invite their relatives to stay in Germany.
