Two weeks ago I attended a Current Affairs discussion. As usual, the subject of “refugees” or “migrants” came up.
I posed the question :
“If Australia were being attacked by an enemy would you expect the young Aussie men to abandon their families, their parents, their wives and children, and escape to another country or would you expect them to stay in Australia and defend and protect them?”
That question received much applause.
This afternoon, visiting Canadian journalist Mark Steyn made the same comment on our local radio station, 3AW, about who was abandoning the elderly and the helpless in the Middle East. It made my day.
