More Foreign Visitors on Centrelink than Aussies by a long way

Post by Webb » Tue May 09, 2017 9:56 am

Channel 9 just did a great segment on their Current Affairs show that talks about how many visitors are rorting our generous free handouts with Centrelink to visitors. MORE VISITORS ARE ON THE DOLE THAN AUSSIES. Yes you read right. This is totally appalling and unbelievable. This is shocking and nothing but a scandal. We are the dumbest country on earth with the dumbest Government the the dumbest welfare and immigration system. No wonder foreigners think Australians are stupid. :lol: :lol: :lol: :D :D :P :oops: ... ocid=acafb

I was watching channel 9 current affairs and there are about 870,000 recent foreign visitors that are lining up for the dole and DSP while there are about 700,000 Aussies or something along these lines. Cost tens of billions a year for the visitors alone.

How dumb is Australia. If you went to most other countries and asked for $5 when desperate they would laugh at you. No wonder the government wants to make Aussies go on work for the dole so they can take care of the more important foreigners who did not get the job with the fake visa or one of their 3 wives needs more centrelink payments for more breeding.
The Government's latest new weapon to tackle welfare bludgers is a new demerit point system to penalise the worst offenders.

But how much good will it do to the bottom line when immigrants get more welfare than those on Newstart allowance?
there might be a better article as this one does not seem to have the story yet...? ... ocid=acafb
