Stop the protests

The Australian 25 April 2011

Okay, you’re fleeing from persecution by your government. You rather rudely fail to enquire about the queue on the spurious grounds that it doesn’t exist and blow all your savings on a luxury cruise to Australia, where naturally you are persecuted by the government and then you have the temerity to get upset about it!

Luckily, the dynamic duo Tony and Scott are on the case. Expect things to get much better very soon.

  1. Yes, of course. Refugees fleeing persecution from their government (slaps forehead). Why didn’t we see that before? You are so right. These are not opportunists seeking to jump the queue, who don’t destroy their papers, who don’t riot when they are found to not be refugees fleeing persecution from their government, then notified their scam didn’t work. How could we have been so blind to their genuine claims of being refugees? We do indeed have so much temerity. Shame on us.

  2. Ahoy there Jackie! Look, I know that making assumptions about people says more about the character of the assumer than the assumee, but I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that you’re the type of person who slaps their forehead pretty often. Next time you do it, don’t hold back.

  3. That, Jon, is an absolute klanger of a response – I’m going to frame it next to my Haikudelka! But seriously, as my friend (sagely)pointed out: the current refugee issue is going to bring out the best and the worst in us. We see it in Pontville, and we see it on the mainland.
