    Good stuff Scott Morrison

    Australia has pulled out of the United Nations Migrant Compact.

    Scott Morrison is following in Donald Trump’s footsteps by refusing to sign a non-binding migration agreement which Australia helped draft.

    Australian officials have been heavily active in negotiating the wording of the UN Global Compact on Migrant over the past two years.

    But the prime minister says the UN pact would compromise Australia’s border security and immigration settings.

    “It doesn’t distinguish between those who illegally enter Australia and those who come the right way,” he told 2GB radio on Wednesday.

    “I would never allow something to compromise our borders, I worked too hard to ensure that we weren’t in that position.”

      Another right wing troll hating on human beings. You know we all bleed the same Stephen.

        Who’s Stephen?

        Another right wing troll hating on human beings.

        No, it’s another RWNJ trying to be populist.

        Still, people really don’t have the right just to waltz into another nation. The nation does have the right and the responsibility to ensure that excessive immigrations does not happen.

          Are you disappointed by the complete lack of media coverage surrounding the Global Compact?

          In a democratic country, you’d think there would be at least a wee bit of discussion around what it all means and the ramifications of signing this document, which is happening in the next couple of weeks.

          But nothing, not a sound, I find that a bit disturbing, why the media blackout? why are they hiding this from New Zealanders?

          I do recommend watching this video if you’re interested in finding out what it’s all about.

            United Nations Global Compact

            The United Nations Global Compact is a non-binding United Nations pact to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation.

            While it’s voluntary I couldn’t care less. It’s obviously not designed to be implemented.

            And, of course, we actually do need to become sustainable no matter what business and other RWNJs think.

            As the right-wing keep saying we really do need to live within our means. Of course, they think that ‘means’ means money and ignore reality.

          By your analysis Draco T BAstard – shouldn’t all white settlers bugger off back whence they came.

    • Fireblade 1.2

      Why does Australia have talented right wing leaders like Scott Morrison and NZ only has Bridges, Bennett and Collins?

      Come on National you sad fucks, get your shit together.

  2. adam 2

    This is just getting out of hand, massive sections of the right wing have gone mad.

  3. A 3

    CCS calls for higher Disability Allowance to combat child poverty. Says comparable benefit in the UK is three tines higher.

    While that’s nice adults with disabilities have grinding poverty too. Try saving for retirement and getting $ for saving when you are hundred + short each week


  4. Ed 4

    John Wight is a brilliant and insightful writer.
    He is well worth following on Twitter.

    “UN poverty report—the Tories have declared war on society. Society must now declare war on them.

    Britain in 2018 is a country in which the class system is more openly flaunted than any other of the ‘industrialised’ world. It is also a country where barbarism, dressed up as government policy, reigns. The mere fact that a UN official — in the person of Professor Philip Alston, United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights — should deem it necessary to visit the 5th largest economy in the world, a country that in 2017 boasted a GDP of 2.622 trillion USD, by itself constitutes the most searing indictment.
    What Professor Alston found in the course of his tour of the country over two weeks, outlined in a excoriating 24-page report, removes any lingering doubt that since coming to power in 2010 successive Tory governments have prosecuted a relentless, systematic, wilful and devastating economic assault against the poorest and most vulnerable section of British society, tantamount to the unleashing of a class war.“

    All of the article is here.

      More brilliance from Wight.

      “Britain’s enemy is not Russia but its own ruling class, UN report confirms.

      As the UK political establishment rips itself to pieces over Brexit, a far greater crisis continues to afflict millions of victims of Tory austerity.
      A devastating UN report into poverty in the UK provides incontrovertible evidence that the enemy of the British people is the very ruling class that has gone out of its way these past few years to convince them it is Russia.

      Professor Philip Alston, in his capacity as the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, spent two weeks touring the United Kingdom. He did so investigating the impact of eight years of one of the most extreme austerity programs among advanced G20 economies in response to the 2008 financial crash and subsequent global recession.

      What he found was evidence of a systematic, wilful, concerted and brutal economic war unleashed by the country’s right-wing Tory establishment against the poorest and most vulnerable section of British society – upending the lives of millions of people who were not responsible for the aforementioned financial crash and recession but who have been forced to pay the price…..”
