Dear Brian

Despite the hard work, I feel that a substantial part of the ethnic communities is concerned about the re-enactment of the “othering” of dispensable minorities through Abbott’s “which side are you on?” electioneering tactics.

As a Chinese Australian I see Abbott’s crusade as a close parallel to the treatment of the Chinese in the decades leading up to Federation. The political upper hand at the cost of persecuting and vilifying the defenceless and insignificant minority.

It’s kind of like a White Australia Policy Mark II. Only this time there is the cloak of multiculturalism and all the spin that goes with it.

Dear Chek,

The ACTU is building one of the biggest war chests in Australian political history.

They’ve put a compulsory levy on union members to come after us and give Labor a massive advantage at the next federal election. It’s raising many millions already.

The CFMEU is also now running a massive scare campaign with direct calls into households.

Can you help us fight back?

We’re getting on with the job of backing hard-working Australians with our strong economic plan.  And we’re repairing Labor’s record debt and deficit.

A return to Labor and corrupt union influences will cripple Australia’s economy and the prospects of all Australians – just look at what Julia Gillard, Kevin Rudd and Bill Shorten did in just 6 short years.

Please donate now to help us take on Labor and the unions.

Any amount, large or small will help – and donations may be tax deductible.*

Change the Entitlements

I absolutely agree, if a pension isn’t an entitlement, neither is theirs. They keep telling us that paying us an aged pension isn’t sustainable.
Paying politicians all the perks they get is even less sustainable! The politicians themselves, in Canberra, brought it up, that the Age of Entitlements is over:
The author is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise. In three days, most people in Australia will have this message. This is one idea that really should be passed around because the rot has to stop somewhere.
Proposals to make politicians shoulder their share of the weight now that the Age of Entitlement is over:

  1. Scrap political pensions.
    Politicians can purchase their own retirement plan, just as most other working Australians are expected to do.
  2. Retired politicians (past, present & future) participate in Centrelink.
    A Politician collects a substantial salary while in office but should receive no salary when they’re out of office.
    Terminated politicians under 70 can go get a job or apply for Centrelink unemployment benefits like ordinary Australians.
    Terminated politicians under 70 can negotiate with Centrelink like the rest of the Australian people.
  3. Funds already allocated to the Politicians’ retirement fund be returned immediately to Consolidated Revenue.
    This money is to be used to pay down debt they created which they expect us and our grandchildren to repay for them.
  4. Politicians will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Politicians pay will rise by the lower of, either the CPI or 3%.
  5. Politicians lose their privileged health care system and participate in the same health care system as ordinary Australian people.
    i.e. Politicians either pay for private cover from their own funds or accept ordinary Medicare.
  6. Politicians must equally abide by all laws they impose on the Australian people.
  7. All contracts with past and present Politicians men/women are void effective 31/12/15.

The Australian people did not agree to provide perks to Politicians, that burden was thrust upon them.
Politicians devised all these contracts to benefit themselves.
Serving in Parliament is an honour not a career.
The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so our politicians should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people, then it will only take three or so days for most Australians to receive the message. Don’t you think it’s time?
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX Parliament and help bring fairness back into this country!
If you agree with the above, pass it on. If not, just delete.
If you wonder why the above individuals are asking for your help look at the figures below.

Salaries of retired Prime Minister and Politicians

Office Additional salary (%) Salary as of 1 July
Prime Minister 160 $507,338
Deputy Prime Minister 105 $400,016
Treasurer 87.5 $365,868
Leader of the Opposition 85.0 $360,990
House of Reps Speaker 75.0 $341,477
Leader of the House 75.0 $341,477
Minister in Cabinet 72.5 $336,599
Parliamentary secretary 25.0 $243,912
Other ministers 57.5 $307,329
Shadow minister 25.0 $243,912

Source: Remuneration Tribunal.

So if I press all the right buttons, the TOTAL annual wages for the 150 seats in the Parliament are:

Prime Minister $507,338
Deputy Prime Minister $400,016
Treasurer $365,868
Leader of the Opposition $360,990
House of Reps Speaker $341,477
Leader of the House $341,477
Minister in Cabinet $336,599
Parliamentary secretary $243,912
Other ministers* 307,329  x 71 =  A$21,820,359
Shadow ministers* $243,912  x 71 =  A$17,317,752

The TOTAL ANNUAL SALARIES (for 150 seats) = $41,694,311 – PER YEAR!

And that’s just the Federal Politicians, no one else!

For the ‘lifetime’ payment example (below) I used the scenario that:

1.   They are paid ‘lifetime’ salaries the same as their last working year and

2.   After retiring, the ’average’ pollie’s life expectancy is an additional 20 years (which is not unreasonable).

It’s worth remembering that this is EXCLUDING all their other perks!

SO, for a 20 years ‘lifetime’ payment (excluding wages paid while a Parliamentarian)

Prime Minister             @ $507,338  = A$10,146,760

Deputy Prime Minister    @ $400,016  = A$8,000,320

Treasurer                   @ $365,868  = A$7,317,360

Leader of the Opposition  @ $360,990  = A$7,219,800

House of Reps Speaker   @ $341,477  = A$6,829,540

Leader of the House       @ $341,477  = A$6,829,540

Minister in Cabinet         @ $336,599  = A$6,731,980

Parliamentary Secretary   @ $243,912  = A$4,782,240

Other ministers**           @ $307,329  = A$6,146,580 x 71 = A$436,407,180

Shadow ministers**        @ $243,912  = A$4,878,240 x 71 = A$346,355,040

Conclusions:

TOTAL ‘life time’ (20 year) payments, (excluding wages paid while in parliament) = A$833,886,220 – OVER $833 MILLION

Julia Gillard, Kevin Rudd, John Howard, Paul Keating, Malcolm Fraser, Bob Hawke, et al, add nauseum, are receiving $10 MILLION + EXTRA at taxpayer expense.

Should an elected PM serve 4 years and then decide to retire, each year (of the 4 years) will have cost taxpayers an EXTRA Two and a half million bucks a year! A$2,536,690 to be precise.

A 2 year retirement payment cut-off will SAVE our Oz bottom line A$792,201,909  *** NEARLY $800 MILLION.

There are 150 seats in House, minus the 8 above = 142 seats, divided equally for example = 71 each for both shadow and elected ministers.

This example excludes all wages paid while a parliamentarian AND all perks on top of that – travel, hotels, Secretarial staff, speech writers, restaurants, offices, chauffeured limos, security, etc. etc.

150 seats, 20-year payment of A$833,886,220 less annual salary x 2 years of A$83,388,622. [$41,694,311 x 2]

“Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.”

Doug Larson (English middle-distance runner who won gold medals at the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris, 1902-1981)

YOU’RE RIGHT, YOU HAVE FOUND WHERE THE CUTS SHOULD BE MADE!

ACTION: Push for a MAX 2 year post retirement payment (give ‘em time to get a real job).

Spread it far and wide folks. People should know.

But Wait!!

Why ‘MAX 2 year post retirement payment’?

It is way too generous, in private sector redundancy is 3 weeks per year of service and cap at a maximum of 2 year pay out.

And if under contract, the agreement is only 4 weeks notice and no more.

Chinese migrants unfairly blamed for Australia’s property shutouts

Dear Prime Minister,

It is so sad that if anything goes wrong, blame the Chinese – regardless!

Due to the anti-Chinese feeling, perhaps they should go to other countries who welcome Chinese.

Would you like to comment, please.

Chinese migrants unfairly blamed for Australia’s property shutouts

By Ni Yao Source:Global Times Published: 2015-6-16 20:13:01

The Chinese community in Australia seems to be facing with a crisis. There is a rising xenophobia against Chinese in the mainstream English-speaking community. Media speculation has also added fuel to the fire.

Since the beginning of last year, nearly all mainstream media in Australia, notably Melbourne, have started to focus on coverage of Chinese entering local property market. They accused the Chinese of being behind the skyrocketing housing prices that led to young Australians being unable to afford houses and forced property taxes up.

This year, housing prices have continued to rise at an overwhelming speed, especially in Sydney. The Daily Telegraph last week reported that in the city’s inner northwest where most Chinese-Australians gather, there is now a billboard only in Chinese advertising property, hoping to exclusively appeal to eager Chinese buyers.

As a Chinese migrant living in Sydney, the state capital of New South Wales, for many years, I have witnessed the surging housing prices and flocks of Chinese coming to buy properties here. The billboard has been there for almost a year and is nothing new to me or any other local. That area used to be a landfill where the whites even do not spare a glance for. But due to the large number of migrants from China, South Korea and the Middle East, the area has been developed into a very modern community. It is more than normal to have billboards written in Chinese in places where most Chinese gather.

It’s certainly not pleasant to live in a society where anti-Chinese sentiments are growing, and it is worth looking into the deeper reasons behind the flourishing Australian property market.

In March, Luke Foley, leader of the opposition Labor Party in the Parliament of New South Wales, appealed to xenophobia to oppose Premier Mike Baird’s proposals of electricity privatization. He suspected new owners might be “an arm of the Communist Party of China.”

Both Labor and the Liberal Party to which Baird belongs often bring up the specter of the “China threat” to score political points. The thing that matters to us Chinese Australians is that if, for instance, the electricity network is sold to a Chinese firm or owner and the electricity fee rises due to a lack of government supervision, a large number of locals in New South Wales will vent their anger on innocent Chinese migrants.

Chinese used to be seen as “industrious” and “honest,” but these stereotypes have been replaced by “extravagant” and “wealthy.” Due to some high-profile individuals’ bold and excessive investment, together with China’s rising global status, China has become the chief scapegoat for Australia’s economic slump and various internal conflicts.

In May, a Credit Suisse report pointed out that Chinese bought 23 percent of new houses in New South Wales. Actually, the foreign investment laws in Australia encourage foreign investors to buy new houses because the government aims to push forward city construction with overseas financing.

However, Australians began to complain that new migrants led to the unbearable rise of housing prices. Indeed, new migrants have, but Chinese migrants make up only one eighth of the entire migrant population, according to Australian immigration office statistics.

The affordability of housing prices has become a severe problem, but the real reasons behind are the limited space of land, development cost and the historically low favorable interest rates and policies to property investors, and none of these has any direct link to China or Chinese migrants.

In addition, local governments have come to depend on the revenue from property taxes and so court new hot money from overseas on the one hand while decrying the effects on ordinary people on the other.

The grievous economic downturn and the dependency of the economy on a single pillar is a dilemma facing not only New South Wales and Victoria but also the entire Australia. But people always tend to persuade themselves to believe what they want to believe, ignoring bitter facts.

Longer visas for Chinese tourists

The federal government has extended multiple entry visas to Chinese nationals from three to 10 years to better compete with the US, which is also clamouring for more Asian tourists.

Trade and Investment Minister Andrew Robb announced the pilot multiple-entry visas for Chinese citizens last night, given more than 200 million Chinese people are expected to be travelling to destinations such as Australia by 2020. The number of Chinese arrivals to Australia in the year to February topped 877,400, up 18.4 per cent on the previous year.

“Our research shows competitive visas are a big deal with the Chinese,” outgoing Tourism Australia chairman Geoff Dixon told The Australian yesterday. “Believe me, we need to be competitive. This 10-year multiple-entry visa will increase numbers. Chinese make a large amount of repeat visits to Australia, obviously some have invested here as well. It is becoming so vital it is at our peril if we don’t embrace it.”

But Mr Dixon, who steps down on June 30, acknowledged that Australia’s $110 billion tourism industry was not ready for the influx of mainland Chinese that started several years ago.

“Everybody has been shocked by the sheer weight of numbers,’’ he said. “But we really do have many of the things the Chinese want. They want a safe and secure destination, aquatic scenery, really good food and welcoming people. It’s almost as if we planned it.”

Anti Chinese in Australia

Dear Prime Minister and the Opposition Leader,

Would you like to comment, please?

Looking forward to hearing from you shortly.

Dear Pauline,

Respectable Aussies are more sensible than your group and racist Nick Folkes as your/Nick Folkes’ protest failed miserably.

Why you/Nick Folkes only pick the Chinese community?

Would you and racist Nick Folkes like to comment?

UPWA is the only political Party that calls a spade a spade. 

These are pics taken at about 1pm of the Anti Chinese rally in Sydney.  The turnout was extremely poor. In fact at one stage there were more lookers than protesters.  The whole street was blocked.  Great to see our NSW MLC Ernest Wong and Wilson Ng ( Media ) there.

And many thxs to the Jewish Board of Deputies for passing a resolution against the Anti Chinese protester Groups and in support of the Chinese Community and lastly all the MPs who had media releases against the Anti Chinese Group eg Chris Minns and Commissioner Tim Soutphommasane for speaking out.

Race hate flyer distributed in Sydney’s north shore and inner city

Date – May 29, 2015 – Rachel Browne Social Affairs Reporter

Residents of Sydney’s lower north shore were stunned by a flyer which appeared in their letterboxes blaming Chinese property buyers for pushing up home prices, “ethnically cleansing” Australian families from their suburbs and creating a new “stolen generation”.

The brochure, titled “Stop the Chinese invasion”, was accompanied by a notice to attend a protest rally at the Chinese consulate in Camperdown on Saturday.

The material was distributed around Lane Cove on Monday and Tuesday with one resident comparing the wording to “Nazi propaganda”.

The mayor of Lane Cove, David Brooks-Horn, described the language in the pamphlets as unacceptable.

“I am shocked by reports that members of our community have received such inflammatory material in their home letterboxes,” he said.

“The way it is written is clearly divisive and is at odds with the strong sense of community we have in Lane Cove.”

Party for Freedom chairman Nick Folkes confirmed that he printed 5000 pamphlets and has been distributing them around the lower north shore, inner west and inner city.

The brochure states that “greedy foreign invaders” are “pricing locals out of the market”, warning that “Australians will become a minority in their own land within the next 30 years if present invasion figures continue”.

Mr Folkes said his flyers were not intended to offend but to draw attention to the issue of foreign investment in Australia.

“We are really concerned about the high level of foreign ownership in Australia – it’s getting out of control,” he said.

“If you can’t control the economy you are not going to have a high standard of living. Why is this government encouraging foreign ownership at the expense of Australian families? It’s insane. I can see a future where Australians are a minority in their own country.”

The son of a Russian refugee mother, Mr Folkes said he was not anti-Chinese.

“I’ve had mixed reactions [to the flyers],” he said. “I’ve had a surprising amount of abuse from Chinese people saying ‘You’re racist’. I’ve made it pretty clear we’re talking about Chinese nationals. We’re not talking about Australians of Chinese heritage.”

A YouTube video in which Mr Folkes burns the flags of China, the Greens, the Coalition and Labor as well as images of Prime Minister Tony Abbott and NSW Premier Mike Baird is aimed at provoking debate, he said

“A lot of people may not like it but we need to have a conversation about these important issues,” he said.

“I see as offensive what’s going on with the whole economic genocide of the Australian people. They can’t afford a home, they can’t find a decent job. I find that offensive. A lot of people feel bound by political correctness but if we can get this conversation going it would be bloody excellent, actually.”

The pamphlets were widely condemned with Multiculturalism NSW cheif executive Harkan Harman saying the message would not resonate with the Australian public while Minister for Multiculturalism John Ajaka described it as a “vile attack.”

Member for Lane Cove Anthony Roberts has referred the matter to the police.

“I have sent a letter to the local area commander at Ryde asking him to investigate any possible breaches of the law and, if so, bring appropriate charges against anyone involved in the production and distribution of the offensive leaflet,” he said.

The Party for Freedom is not registered with the Australian Electoral Commission but Mr Folkes hopes to have enough supporters to gain registration in time for the next federal election.

According to a post on Facebook, 2200 people have been invited to the rally at the Chinese consulate on Saturday and almost 800 say they will attend.

A NSW Police spokesman confirmed that officers were aware of the planned protest.
