comparing free and equal societies we have here two reports that say it all!

Britain is becoming more racist, whilst Australia remains in the whole a racist free country!

I'm too old and set in my ways to emigrate to Australia, plus my kids are not far away. Otherwise I might consider it.

The UK has become a most depressing place - not helped by the gloom and doom in the newspapers. I no longer buy one, I see enough problems in real life.

Australia's pretty much the last place I'd go even if I did emigrate.
I might end up in a detention camp in Manus or Naurua and have to rely on President Trump to offer me a home in the US. All is not rosy in the outback country.

I'd fancy New Zealand, much nicer place, but the criteria to get in there is very strict.

I think one of your own homegrown anti-racist charities might disagree with you on that.

1 in 5 people in Australia have experienced racism. (on the increase as it was previously 1 in 8)
3 in 4 Indigenous Australians regularly experience racism
One in seven people living in Australia are against the concept of multiculturalism
Three in ten people do not believe that immigrants make Australia stronger
One in three believe there are some cultural groups that do not belong in Australia
One in ten have racist attitudes

My sister has been in Australia for many years,and she still can't believe the way the aboriginals are frequently treated. It is true that a few have advanced,but they are in the minority,remember it was their land for millions of years before others took it over,the same in the U.S.  My original point was that another forum member was saying in another thread that we in the UK have no right to expect that everyone should show their faces in public,and that face masks should be banned.

It's about 50,000 years really Andsome but I'm only being piccy!  smile

"Freedom in Australia" and people seem to focus mainly on the 2.4% who are indigenous. 

But OK, it's easy to be an armchair critic from the other side of the globe.
(Historically, most of the really evil stuff occurred at the hands of British settlers and their immediate progeny - but let's not go there).

In recent decades, successive Australian governments have bent over backwards to address issues of disadvantage.
Bucket-loads of money, many billions, have been poured into projects aimed at improving their lot.
Way out of proportion to their number - providing services and subsidies available to no other Australians.
And with some success. There are more and more aborigines in state or federal parliaments, in medicine, in law, in business, in trades etc etc.

But for those who choose to remain in remote communities there are complex problems and no simple solutions.
Generational welfare dependency when families live where there are no jobs,
alcoholism, domestic violence, drugs, parents who will not send their kids to school, sexual abuse, petty (and not so petty) crime.
Sure the % in jails is way out of proportion. But what can the courts do ?
Let the wife-basher or child-abuser or dope-peddler just carry on regardless ?

Things are improving - but if some Pom thinks they can solve it all overnight, feel free to come out and have a go.

Well done to the Aussie courts for standing up to Racism.

O well then.

Watch and be sick for Aussie land.
