ASK Yourself … what is going on here?
SEE the last photo, ‘Racist Border Kills’ says a protester holding up a sign in the UK
THIS is what the ‘West’ are up against … it appears, they think they have a ‘right’ to enter any country at will! Of course, it so happens, those countries that happen to:
-be free and democratic
-have strong judicial system
–functional health services
-uphold basic human rights
AND the list goes on … they certainly are:
WHILST others are:
-certainly fleeing poverty and hunger, persecution and conflicts
BUT what is happening …
–opinion shaping continues like on SBS last night when it featured a segment about the difficulties faced by migrants getting jobs and suitable accommodation. Indeed an advocate interviewed expressed concern about the lack of ‘affordable housing for migrants!’
Well, I’ll be blowed, what about the hundreds of thousands of people already here who have been, and are still unable to find any affordable housing …
‘One in eight people in NSW live in Poverty‘
…And how many more ‘just above the poverty line’ … the ‘Working Poor’?
Why not fix an existing housing problem in Australia; catch up and resolve affordable housing shortages and assist this process with a return to ‘a more manageable migration program’?
AND the Scomo Government …
Announcing an increase in the numbers of skilled migrants to regional areas (even regarding Perth and the Gold Coast as regional localities).
This as reported, last night on the ABC TV news this program was about these migrants and students getting ‘permanent residency’ and citizenship.
DO you recall Australians have ever been asked to vote on where the country’s population should be heading?
Are we ‘force feeding the economy’ in an unsustainable direction?
History will likely show it was a serious mistake to take this path of development no matter what … in an increasingly damaged environment suffering climate change and becoming even drier than in any time in human history.
FOURTH ARREST OVER 39 BODIES FOUND IN TRUCK IN ESSEX AMID CLAIMS SOME VICTIMS COULD BE FROM VIETNAM
By Jack Hawke
26 OCTOBER 2019
Police have made a fourth arrest over the deaths of 39 people found dead in the back of a truck in Essex, east of London, amid speculation that some victims could be from Vietnam.
- A woman and two other men, including the driver, were arrested earlier this week
- No-one has been charged
- Authorities are working to identify the victims
Essex Police said a 48-year-old man from Northern Ireland was arrested at Stansted Airport on suspicion of conspiracy to traffic people and on suspicion of manslaughter.
Earlier on Friday a man and a woman, both aged 38, were arrested in Warrington, northern England.
The driver of the truck, a 25-year-old man from Northern Ireland, remains in police custody having been arrested on suspicion of murder.
No charges have yet been laid.
As forensic experts began the process of identifying the victims, the Vietnamese embassy in London said families from the South-East Asian country had got in touch about missing relatives. There were growing concerns at least 10 of the victims could have been from Vietnam.Follow this story to get email or text alerts from ABC News when there is a future article following this storyline.Follow this story

Hoa Nghiem from Human Rights Space, a civic network based in Vietnam, said that Pham Thi Tra My, 26, had sent a text message to her mother saying she could not breathe about the time the truck container was en route from Belgium to Britain.
“I’m sorry, Mum and Dad. My path abroad was not a success. I love you both so much. I can’t breathe. I’m from Nghen Town, Can Loc District, Ha Tinh, Vietnam … I am sorry, Mum,” the message said, according to Ms Hoa, who said that it had come from Ms Tra My’s family.
She said Ms Tra My had gone to China and was planning to reach England via France and that the organisation was getting more alerts about possible Vietnamese victims in the trunk.
Police have said they believe the dead were Chinese but Beijing said the nationalities had not yet been confirmed. Chinese and Vietnamese officials are now both working closely with British police, their respective embassies said.
The victims, 31 men and eight women, were found inside the back of a refrigerated trailer by ambulance crews at an industrial estate in Grays, Essex, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Deputy chief constable Pippa Mills said officers were continuing to work around the clock on the case that has shocked the UK and the world.
She said victims had begun being transported from a secure holding area at the Port of Tilbury to a mortuary at the nearby Broomfield Hospital, where formal identification and post-mortem examinations will take place.
“This process is likely to be a lengthy one, but it is crucial, and we’re working with Her Majesty’s Coroner to ensure the dignity of the victims and the respect for their loved ones is at the forefront of our investigation,” Detective Constable Mills said during a press conference on Friday evening (local time).
“I’m acutely aware of the international interest in this case and the appetite for information. We will provide more updates as and when we can.”
For years, illegal immigrants have attempted to reach Britain stowed away in trucks, often from the European mainland. In 2000, 58 Chinese people were found dead in a tomato truck at the port of Dover.
