Other recent news:
THE RELOCATION of the Riverland Special School has been ongoing since 2004 when the governments wanted to redevelop the existing site when there was around 40 plus students.
IN REFERENCE to the police report headed 'Teen bashed at fundraiser' in a recent edition of The Murray Pioneer (30/3/10), I would like to express my disappointment in your reporting of the incident.
IN MY 65 years I've never voted Liberal, or Labor for that matter.
One major reason for this is that they both presided over Australia’s disastrous immigration program.
There’s plenty of good science around which puts Australia’s maximum sustainable human population at about 10 million; the number we had before the Liberal Party government introduced massive immigration after World War II. This folly was continued by succeeding Liberal and Labor governments.
Now, Tony Abbott is promising cuts to immigration numbers, but I don’t trust him to deliver decent cuts to immigration numbers. Both parties have always known that a huge majority of Australians have opposed massive immigration.
Mr Abbott wants to get elected and party politicians are renowned for breaking their promises after they get elected.
So here’s the deal, Tony: You promise to cut immigration to a few thousand people a year and find a way to guarantee that it will stay that way.
Think of some iron clad way to lock your government into the deal after you get elected and I’ll vote for you.
