Yep, another boat [updated]


This one sent out a distress call, is believed to be carrying 180 passengers, and hasn’t been found yet.

AUSTRALIAN rescue authorities have received a distress call from an asylum-seeker boat carrying up to 180 people south of Indonesia.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority received a call from the vessel at 4.30am (AEST) today.

The boat has not yet been sighted but AMSA has put out a call to merchant vessels in the area for assistance.

The vessel is understood to be 50 nautical miles south of Indonesia.

Home Affairs Minister Jason Clare said the vessel had reported it was taking on water.

Shame on Labor for ripping up a policy that worked. Shame on the Greens for not bending and agreeing to some sort of a compromise solution.

UPDATE

Sending out a distress call is just their latest tactic. What an effing joke.

In a satellite call to Australia from the boat, passengers said the vessel was taking on water in 3m waves in conditions described as “sea state six”.

So our navy sent HMAS Wollongong to assist:

When it arrived at 10am there was no signs of distress and the vessel was headed towards Christmas Island.

    It’s okay though. Julia has set up a committee to deal with this situation.

    I’m certain any drowning individuals will be delighted to know Julia has outsourced the case and is on holidays at the moment enjoying her latest pay rise while they sink to the bottom of the sea.

    If I wasn’t already; I think I am starting to get very cross and incredibly cynical.

    • Yeah, and if people followed the links on a post a few scrolls of the mouse down, they’d realise that committee is stacked higher than the IKEA warehouse.

  1. People say there’s this “racism” problem. They say this “racism” problem will only be solved when people from the Third World pour into every white country… and only white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan and Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve their “racism” problem by bringing in millions of Third World immigrants and “assimilating” them.

    But they do say the solution to this “racism” problem is for every white country, and only white countries, to “assimilate” (which means: have kids with) all those other people… who outnumber white people many times over.

    What if you said there was this “racism” problem which could only be solved by bringing hundreds of millions of non-Black people into every Black country… and only Black countries? How long would it take someone to realize you weren’t really talking about solving a “racism” problem, you were just talking about a genocide? And what kind of Black person wouldn’t object to that?

    But if I tell the obvious truth about the campaign of genocide against white people, then liberals and “respectable” conservatives all agree: I must be a “racist”.

    They say they’re “anti-racist”, but what they really are is anti-white.

    “Anti-racist” is just a code word for anti-white.

    • Hi. Thanks for dropping by (and note only the first comment is moderated).

      I don’t see border security as a race issue. I see it as a law and order issue. Is Australia a sovereign nation, or not? Do we like having our pants pulled down on international TV, or would we prefer a modicum of respect?

      Hi Pechorin

      It is interesting you mention Japan, although it is not essentially racist (as a westerner would see it) it is a country that is highly nationalistic and people who become citizens (which is not an easy task) are expected to be ‘Japanese’ including people who are granted citizenship adopting a Japanese family name.

      Obversley, any fool can arrive on the shores of Oz with all their predjudices, cultural peccadillos & bad habits and our PC brigade will enable their behaviour under the guise of multi-culturalism. As to wether it is an ‘anti-white’ thing, i don’t think so. It is just that the PC brigade have tended to hijack the debate in the lamestream media and use it as a form of ‘white guilt’ or better yet self flaggelation.
