The MAINSTREAM MEDIA … do they have to be careful?
… after all we can’t have anyone ask the difficult
questions, can we?
*WHY not share CAAN’s very pertinent questions below with the ABC?
–do you believe the economy can grow forever?
–do you believe we should keep growing our population at more than double the normal rate? … from 70,000 immigrants p.a. to some 400,000 through both permanent and temporary migration by manipulating the Visa System? (160,000 permanent migrants reduced from 190,000 p.a. 2 years ago)
–do you believe it is okay for foreigners and foreign corporations to buy Australia’s domestic housing?
–do you believe it is okay for Temporary Visa Holders to gain a ‘Permanent Resident Visa’ when they buy our domestic housing? And gain the benefit of Medicare?

VIEW: Flood of wealthy residents buying Australian property
-do you believe it is okay for we, Australians, to have to put up with more chronic infrastructure bottlenecks, rampant wage theft, the HOUSING AFFORDABILITY CRISIS, falling living standards? Does it look like a joint Big End of Town/Government construct?
–do you believe it is okay for the Morrison Government alleging it has cut immigration while the Temporary Visa System has become the new Growth Industry? With the Administrative Appeals Tribunal overrun by bogus applications for asylum from migrants/visa holders that arrived by plane?
VIEW: HOW the real Numbers of Migrants are concealed behind Bridging Visas
–do you believe it is okay that it appears Visa Holders are not being vetted? Do we know who is arriving, and staying in Australia?
–do you believe it is okay the number of bridging visas on issue has doubled since the Coalition Government in 2013 to more than 200,000 as at June 2019?
–do you believe it is okay that migrants temporarily settling in regional areas and smaller capital cities purely to get the required number of points for permanent residency before moving to Sydney and Melbourne?
VIEW: Migrants line up for Australia’s Visa System
–do you believe it is okay that 25 years ago it might have been tough to survive on Newstart but now it is impossible? Including a qualified woman struggling to find work and get by on the Newstart Allowance
–do you believe it is okay that developers can apply directly to the NSW Government to inflate approval for a 450 dwelling development to one of 1900 dwellings in multiple mid and high-rise?
Through a City Planning Panel?
VIEW: Over the Top … Huge Meriton Development proposed for Little Bay
-do you believe it is okay that any Sydney or NSW Community can lose open space, parklands, any undeveloped patch of land for a huge development that can be marketed 100% to overseas buyers?
–do you believe it is okay that a mere token of 5 or 10% can be allocated for local Key Workers?
–do you believe it is okay that Australians are being sidelined to benefit the developer lobby? The Big End of Town? And their client base, the foreign buyer as our suburbs and towns are rezoned for higher density for their benefit?
–do you believe it is okay for our governments to persist with high immigration and Visa Manipulation when we do not have the water to quench the thirst of more people?
–do you believe that it is okay for Australian Constituents to have to foot the bill for prohibitively expensive DESALINATION PLANTS to benefit others?
