The alien invasion marches on

By Barcham 17 July 2013 72

It’s been a while since I reported on the invasion of Canberra from parts unknown, so it pleases me that another youtube video has been uploaded capturing some phoenix lights from the mothership.

You’ll notice none of our peers have yet picked up on this story, for some reason it remains a RiotACT exclusive.

Fortunately Kevin Rudd, beloved leader of our Labor stronghold town, has solved the problem for us. All boat people will now be sent to PNG for processing, and if found to be a genuine refugee resettled in PNG.

Yep, what a total dirtbag.

+1 Bring back the witch!

Wouldn’t this require legislation? Mr Rudd may have forgotten he doesn’t have a majority in either house. Obviously he will have the support of the Right on this, until the election, when they may change their minds and do something else. So unless he recalls Parliament to pass this legislation, is it just a bit of a thought bubble.

Judging by a lot of negative comment from the MSM already, Rudd’s latest thought bubble will last about another 7 days. He may try to recall Parliament to pass the required legislation thinking he can wedge the opposition if they oppose him but until all the detail is on the table I can’t see Abbott supporting it and I wouldn’t expect he could be justifiably critisized for that.

It seems that President Rudd has decided that the legalities of it all mean exactly nothing.

I predict some very lengthy and costly High Court challenges.

Well all the toing and froing,while entertaining,is now entirely academic given that Ruddie has said that any asylum seeker who arrives in Australia by boat will have no chance of being settled in Australia as a refugee.

Nothing quite like appealing to the masses with the election looming!

Well, now that PM Rudd has announced that he is not extending Australian residency to anymore boat travelling asylum seekers, all our discussions appear to have been in vain.
The silence is eerie.
Can anyone give me the name of the radio station that this often referred to Alan Jones chappy broadcasts on?
I would like to hear what he has to say about it because there is bugger all reaction on this site.

For your benefit:

MIGRATION ACT 1958 – SECT 228B

Circumstances in which a non-citizen has no lawful right to come to Australia
(1) For the purposes of this Subdivision, a non-citizen has, at a particular time, no lawful right to come to Australia if, at that time:

(a) the non-citizen does not hold a visa that is in effect; and

(b) the non-citizen is not covered by an exception referred to in subsection 42(2) or (2A); and

(c) the non-citizen is not permitted by regulations under subsection 42(3) to travel to Australia without a visa that is in effect.

(2) To avoid doubt, a reference in subsection (1) to a non-citizen includes a reference to a non-citizen seeking protection or asylum (however described), whether or not Australia has, or may have, protection obligations in respect of the non-citizen:

(a) under the Refugees Convention as amended by the Refugees Protocol; or

(b) for any other reason.

So you can’t start ignoring that as much as you like, it is there in black and white and specifically mentions it applies to those entering Australia with the intention to seek Asylum. Seeking Asylum is not illegal and never has been. Entering Australia without valid travel documents is however. You’re confused on law versus conventions we’re signatories to.

And you are confused about the definition of ‘illegal’. Nowhere does that section say that entering Australia without valid travel documents is illegal.

There are no offence provisions created within that particular section that anyone can breach.

It may be semantics, but the law is very much about semantics.

I’d like to hear what gave dungers and Dilandach’s antecendents the right to come over to this country, presumably on a boat, and then deny that luxury to other people. The answer, of course, is nothing, but I’d still like to hear their justification for it.

Completely irrelevant to the discussion. Playing the man instead of the ball. It’s clear that you’re incapable of having a debate without wanting to delve into personal backgrounds for the purpose of gaining a perceived advantage in what ever point it is you were hoping to make. Let me know when you’re going to talk like an adult and we’ll be good to go but until then perhaps it’s best if the topic remained on aliens of the anal penetrative type.

🙂

Oh FFS, pull your fecking head out and give me a good answer to my question. You should be in Parliament with the way you duck and dodge questions, you’d fit right in with Rudd, Abbott, Scott Morrison and the rest of the scum.
