  • Podcast: Draft Wrap Up w/Jason Taylor  

Soidee

OUT: Abbott IN: Turnbull

Recommended Posts

India: Not a signatory to the 1951 refugee convention.

Pakistan: Why do you think they no longer play Pakistani cricket matches in Pakistan? The Taliban control large swathes of the northern Pakistan (after they were forced to retreat to after the 2001 war).

Turkey: That would be like driving to Geelong from Melbourne via Mallacoota. That being said, Turkey receives our annual quota of refugees in a month.

I think you will find that it's not a case of flying on planes to wherever. You will find that most refugees who make the journey have been mostly chewed up and spat out of refugee camps where you mostly have no hope for the future. You can't get a job. Your kids can't really get an education. It's just you, your rather meaningless UNHCR refugee status ticket (as you have no settlement country) and a long wait for resettlement.

I would also ask if you were running from official persecution, why would you give your location away by handing your passport over at an airport?

The last part is just unworkable as a general principle. Say if you were a person seeking asylum from North Korea, would you try to set up shop in the nearest port (which technically is South Korea but it's unreachable due to the DMZ)? Where do you think the next nearest 'port' is and what hopes do you think you would have of getting settled?

India don't sign anything apparently. not anything the west does anyway. not even cricket is done the right way according to them.

the point remains we cannot take all refugees from anywhere in the world... Sth East Asia & the Pacific region is our area of responsibility.

* If i was in Nth Korea, I would head to China first. the point is they may not take me. & that IS their right.

No it's about preserving our relationship with the USA. Would you rather we were totally alone and at the mercy of any nation? India is not in the Middle East.

well explain then the 'near east', 'the middle east', & 'the far east', & 'sth east asia'?

You volunteering?

Do you feel safer now?

Personally I detest the waste of public resources so the half wits in Canberra can win over the half wits in the electorate by claiming to have stopped a terrorist attack.

One bullet would have done the job for some delusional teen in Lakemba and kept the rest of them(jihadis) quiet.

That's why I called you a victim .

Or you are terribly naive.

The point of this war is to terrify the populace into compliance.

This is a bogus war that has no end,no result.

Except to keep you dumb.

You seem to think this is just a ploy by politicians when it is a real and genuine threat. This servers two purposes, it stops their planned murder of some innocent bystander and takes these idiots off the street.

There was a teenager who left here, went overseas and blew himself up in a Bagdad market, do you think that was planned by the half wits in Canberra?

Don't bother replying I think I already know your answer.

Back we go to Iraq with the US. It should be called Operation “Unscramble the Egg” as in lets try and fix up the mess we helped cause in the first place. Up to a few months ago there had just been 10 years of chaos and mass killings,car bombings and millions of Arab homeless refugees! And then things really spiralled out of control with ISIL I mean who was to know that the political instability in Iraq would culminate in the tragedy of two white faced Westerners being beheaded?

I'm with Tony - No choice we have to act!!

Why were the white westerners beheaded in the first place?

It wasn't because the West stated that they were going to act was it? Let's get the story right, this is s chicken egg scenario.

Would you be happy if they went on their merry way, slaughtering all those that had a different religion or disagreed with their barbaric ideals?

Perhaps you would recommend diplomacy and maybe you'd like to take part in a delegation with the greens to visit and thrash out the problems. Or should we just wait until they've killed every single person that disagrees with them.

Just pointing out the hypocrisy of the West and our media. Who cares about the hundreds of thousands of Arabic people who have died or have been injured, displaced since the Coalition of the Willing intervened 10 years ago. When two westerners are murdered it is all too much so off we go again to do what exactly?

We take a minuscule number by international and pizz a great heap of money away locking people away. We aren't even coming close to taking 'all refugees'.

* If you went to China, you wouldn't even get a hearing. They would send you straight back to the forced labor camps in North Korea. If you tried to apply for refugees status at the embassy you are a long shot as China is one of the few countries in the world that has it's own armed security guards at embassy gates.

So... in many cases for some people, it's not possible to find refuge in the so called 'next port of call' as you say.

so the few genuine ones then we'd take, after they've tried other countries first; but not those trying to come here first up,,, trying to force us, via embarrassing us thru the international media.

I don't mind the genuine, but not the trumped up green solicitors who seem to want a escalator into our country.

I would prefer to be able to screen & choose the ones who will fit into our culture more easily, rather than those who couldn't give a stuff about our ways & our values. just got to look at the taxi drivers who won't stop to pick you up at night, ot wnat to know where your going before they pick you up.

But if your a very drunk girl with short skirt, they seem to accept that fair. and many a girl gets more than they bargained for.

sorry CBF, I won't change on this. for me its about the type of people you allow into your home. caring ones who will respect your ways & things would be welcome. those who are envious a wanton can keep going past.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
