A New Compact with Migrants
The Australian federal treasurer, Peter Costello, demands a new compact with migrants; arguing that people coming into the country must accept the Australian values.
He has bluntly warned the radical Muslims and other migrants to respect the laws and liberties of the Australian nation or lose their right to citizenship.
The treasurer believes that people who want to live under the Islamic sharia law should move to countries where they would feel “more at ease”.
Costello is obviously concerned with the emergence of what he describes as “mushy misguided multiculturalism”.
Nevertheless, while his vision of a more muscular nationalism may be good news to some elements of the far right, the affected migrants are not laughing!
