Australia, look at yourself.

Feb 13, 2014

Australia, look at yourself.

No, seriously, look at yourself.

  • You’ve helped neighbouring countries through dark times,
  • You’ve got an economy that has seen off the worst of the global financial crisis and ended up in a much better position than most of its peers,
  • You have a diverse, multi-racial population with an estimated resident population born overseas of 27.7% at June 2013,
  • You have wonderful natural assets that are major tourist draw-cards.

And yet perhaps in spite of this:

Are you proud of what you are becoming or have in fact become?

A regional bully happy which is happy to sell the silver rather than change taxation behaviour, treat visitors with contempt, and put our natural heritage at risk.

It troubles me that I cannot be proud of the country I call home.
