Re: If You Don't Like It Go Home

Re: Rudd flips on 'Big Australia'

Smoke and mirrors. Neither party wants to reduce immigration, the economic benefits of high immigration are just too great for them. This is simply an appeasement measure.

Re: no jobs unless your polish

I disagree with you. Is it ethically and morally right that millions of Poles live on the bread-line? - many more than Brits! They are EU citizens and have as much right to a job in an EU country...

Re: iPhone app- citizenship test
