It's not a huge number but once this kind of entry starts it has a bad habit of getting out of hand. There'll be more of them. Ask the Italians and the influx of asylum seekers/ immigrants from North Africa.

My sister waited eleven years for a visa and she was in a skilled profession and with a sound education. Why should these people get priority especially since they'll probably go on the welfare rolls if accepted

Indeed. Moneypenny should know better. Look what happened between 2009 and 2013 when the (Labor) government began letting in "just a few hundred" boat people.

FactCheck: did 1200 refugees die at sea under Labor?

I wonder how she'd feel if thousands of boat people came ashore in Sydney clogging up the immigration and social services systems ? But it's okay if it happens here though. The Aussies have it all worked out.. They stick em all on an island before they get that far.

I watched the queen's speech, but didn't watch couldn't bring myself to watch Trump's. Does that make me bad?

I wouldn't know the IQ of a box of frogs. Maybe Einstein had some theory on that. But isn't it true that boat people are taken to an island and detained on that island after entering Australian waters. Yes or No?

Another thought. Immigration into the UK was one of the reasons for the vote on Brexit. You can afford to be liberal on the issue. You're not living in Britain, in southern Italy, Greece or in the border States with Mexico. You really haven't a clue what the problems and issues are..

Since you're not living in the U.S nor even a citizen why would it? Millions here didn't listen to it and they're not bad. You've got Justin so what's the big problem?

It may be necessary to kiss up if a favourable trade deal could be signed in the near future. After all Brexit gained nothing for the UK and May and the Parliament have resembled a three ring circus act ever since.
