Someone should tell Jacinda, our naive PM, that on Monday's AM Breakfast Show poll about 80 per cent of those who voted were against New Zealand taking any of the Manus Island boat people, or asylum seekers as they call themselves. They have caused no end of problems amongst themselves and for the authorities responsible for looking after them since being there, so why would we want them here?
People throughout the Western world are absolutely fed up with foreigners turning up on their shorelines expecting to be let in and be given everything that the locals have worked hard all their lives to own. Most have totally different religious and cultural views to the countries that they are trying to invade, which begs the question ‘Why do they want to come?' With all the brutal terrorist attacks being committed around the Western world by refugees and so-called asylum seekers, why would we want to invite those sort of problems here?
