I heard on the Today Show this morning, PM Julia Gillard proudly state that, “The Government has provided $17m to the disaster fund in Queensland with more to come over due course.” Well done Julia. Now explain to this little black duck who at this point is one angry bastard how all of this works:
THE TOP 8 RECIPIENTS OF THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT'S AID DOLLARS IN 2010-2011
Indonesia - $ 458.7 million
Papua New Guinea - $ 457.2 million
Solomon Islands - $ 225.7 million
Afghanistan - $ 123.1 million
Vietnam - $ 119.8 million
Philippines - $ 118.1 million
East Timor - $ 102.7 million
Cambodia - $ 64.2 million
TOTAL = $ 1,669 million -to be given away in 52 weeks
..but wait, there’s more... !!!!!!!
• Australia provides approximately 150,000 tonnes of food aid every year—about $65 million—to
Bangladesh, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Sudan and Chad.
• In 2010-2011 the Australian Government plans to spend almost $4.4 billion on development assistance to under developed countries.
SO….. Ask your local Member how come 2011 Queensland flood victims get “$17 million so far”?
When insurers, such as Allianz and CGU, provide cover for storm damage but EXCLUDE
FLOOD from their home and contents policies.
SUGGEST, we EXCLUDE them from our Shopping Lists … ????
And now Gillard will give nearly $500 million for Indonesia’s Islamic schools which are largely moderate in outlook but there have been pockets of radicalism that have produced terrorists in Indonesia, most notably the cleric Abu Bakar Bashir’s school in Ngruki, central Java, where some of the Bali bombers studied
STOP THE OVERSEAS AID NOW AND DIVERT THOSE FUNDS TO
WHEN QUEENSLAND HAS BEEN REBUILT AND BACK ON ITS FEET,
THEN WE CAN HELP TO BUILD MORE ISLAMIC SCHOOLS
OVERSEAS. AND HERE’S AN IDEA:
MAYBE WE CAN ALSO TEACH ABU BAKIR’S DICIPLES TO SING:-
"KOOKABURRA SITS ON THE OLD GUM TREE",
"I STILL CALL AUSTRALIA HOME"!!
