So I was happy to see one defending immigration restriction, and pointing out how politically popular fighting the good fight can be.
Unfortunately, they're talking about Australia. Hal G. P. Colebatch has an excellent article about Australian PM John Howard, the Cronulla riots, and other aspects of immigration as seen from Australia, and not seen very well by the International Herald-Tribune, which did a John Howard hit piece called Australians debating immigration and national identity By Tim Johnston on January 28.
I recommend Hal Colebatch's article. [Marauding Youth Chic, February 6, 2007 ] I also recommend similar articles closer to home.
