Immigration ‘debate’ skirts the big issues

ABC TV / 730 Report / 14 August 2013

Tonight’s 730 Report on ABC TV was disappointing. It promised a discussion about immigration policy between the Minister (Tony Burke) and the Shadow Minister (Scott Morrison) – but instead featured only humanitarian issues and border protection. While these are important matters, they are but part of a much bigger picture. Immigration as a whole needs to be reduced. Why won’t our representatives discuss the big picture? (Rhetorical question…)

The good news is that, come 7 September, all voters in Australia can help alert the new government to our concern about high levels of population by writing REDUCE IMMIGRATION in the blank spaces on ballot papers. Instructions on how to do this are here.

For the record, our tweets to the 730 Report are listed here:
