Ah Clancy, when I live in an objective world, with an objective history, where no one is any different to any other and everyone expresses exactly the same view on exactly the same issues I will endeavour to restrcit myself.
If you have travelled, you may have noticed that the politics of the countries you travelled through affected your experience in them, the ironies, contradictions and absurdities, Iran and its Islamic laws, Turkmenistan and its now passed on psycho Turkmenbashi naming months after family members, Russia and its red tape not to mention blacked-out law breaking limmoes etc etc
Australia is no differrent and to suggest that critism of the governments immigration policies, as part of a response to a query on immigration/ visa issues and someones intention to break those laws, means I should move to another country is a pretty unimpressive response.
I would have probably responded by pointing out the large number of refugees that do get residency while acknowledging the tradgedy of the SEIVX. But I am not you.
Pull your head out of the sand Clancy and look at things in their context, I suspect you need to do a little bit more travelling, terribly sorry if this information on the SEIVX upest your view of our country..our polies didn't know about the AWB stuff either!

I am still impressed that a response took five days!
Close to Antarctica and a long way from reality
