ASIO, the Australian Federal Police and Australian Border Force (immigration) will become one like super-department of people with rather intrusive powers.

Hmm,

 

Someone does not understand the system in the U.K. then again I'm surprised Turnbull can spell his own name sometimes...

 

Home Office has a lot of power sure, but not really in a police sense, the Brits leave that to the police itself and agencies such as MI5 and a few other much less well known ones, small, compact and fast acting, always been the British way.

 

It is facile to say Australia has a better record than the UK, we are a tiny population on a very large island, the UK is completely the opposite, and only a few miles away from a very turbulent sub-continent.

 

I get on well with the feds, find ASIO a bit bizarre, Border force I've had no contact with at all.

Don't worry, you don't have to leave if you are ;)

 I'm a tri-citizen, Australian, British and Israeli, could even add US if I wanted to, but not really interested - not interested in running for politics either :)

I'm like those two Greens senators, got here real young. You don't think about these things when you're that age!

Man but I am sooooo bloody pleased about Larissa Waters quitting the party. I bet her child is too. Now the kid has less of a chance of developing chronic indigestion.


That's just given my Tuesday evening a real lift :) I never ever took the Lady.

Dutton will make it a success.  I just think the rest of Australia won't like how that looks to Dutton.

 I'm not inclined to agree with your first sentence simply because Dutton will not be operating in a bubble

I do not understand your second sentence.

So it looks like this chap Pelluzo is the real brains behind the idea huh ? Dutton is merely the current pollie to be able to make use of Pelluzo's ideas

He will fuk things up for everyone else and do his best to bring about a police state where he has full power over everyone. But only he would think that's a good thing for the country.

Oh, thanks for that . I was trying to see how any of us cared what looked good to Dutton ... couldn't make it work ;)

 

From where I sit just now, each State is trying to do it's level best to create a Police State. Dutton is a fool for thinking this amalgamation will do him good. When ( not if ) the shit hit's the fan Dutton as the top dog will be the one whose head will roll. In that respect, Malcy is making it easier for us to direct our ire and venom at a single body :P

 

I don't want an amalgamation of anything. Too much detail gets lost.
