Scott Morrison is targeting migrant communities critical to his re-election in a bid to seize on Bill Shorten’s shift to fast-track refugee medical transfers to Australia, as the government ramps up pressure on Labor in a move drawing comparisons to John Howard’s Tampa moment.
As a new opinion poll last night showed the Opposition Leader has been badly punished after backing independent Kerryn Phelps’s medivac bill, the Prime Minister tapped into voters’ concerns, releasing an opinion piece published in three languages, Mandarin, Arabic and Korean, for community newspapers.
We import these people for no better reason than diversity! and then our prime minister has to go to them cap in hand in their own languages in a groveling attempt at re-election.
It’s not our country anymore.
Update: XYZ Magazine took the time to flesh out the same article. However, I have one disagreement with David’s analysis.
Last week Bill Shorten proved an XYZ prediction wrong and torpedoed his chances of winning the next federal election.
I think it’s going to be a wipe out for the Liberals.
