It depends on what she was getting at though, doesn't it? I agree in essence, but I think my concern is more cultural than racial. I choose to live in a Western liberal democracy, and these are white countries, for the most part. If Australia was 75% Asian, but identical culturally and politically to where we live today, I shouldn't have a problem with it, should I?

Anything wrong with Asian migrants? Are British migrants more superior?

I can't say that I was a fan of Maggie, but to be fair, she was right on this one. What's Carr on about? Halfwit.

It's interesting you should say that my chip-shouldered friend, do you often have that effect on your neighbours?

Spot on. I'd never thought of it that way.

Not sure about superior (but probably) but definately more welcome.
