If we open the borders to all them Islamic BS refugees like the EU did, it won't be.
are we forgetting the debate was triggered by the rape and murder of a girl by a white australian guy?
SHY chose to have a public meltdown and start a crusade on behalf of all women who’ve experienced sexual harassment in the workplace.

And then he was gone:
Former senator David Leyonhjelm's state political career is over before it even began, with the NSW Electoral Commission's final count revealing the Liberal Democrats did not win an Upper House seat.
The NSW election was on March 23, but the complicated Upper House results were finalised only today
Mr Leyonhjelm, who quit federal politics to seek election in NSW, did not win a seat
The Animal Justice Party was a surprise winner on preferences
Two weeks ago Mr Leyonhjelm prematurely claimed victory when he published a blog post titled "a manifesto for a crossbencher" and announced it was "evident" he had been elected.
After preferences were distributed this morning, it was confirmed he had not made the cut.
He also changed his Twitter bio, which had read "NSW MLC for the Liberal Democrats" to "former senator for the Liberal Democrats".
The Coalition won eight seats, Labor seven, two each for the Greens and One Nation, and one each for the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party and Animal Justice Party.
Mr Leyonhjelm quit federal politics in January this year to contest the NSW election as he wanted to work on "nanny-state issues"
Who got in?
One Nation 2
Shooters, Fishers and Farmers 1
Animal Justice 1
The final results for the Upper House end a three-way race between Christian Democrat MLC Paul Green, One Nation's second candidate Rod Roberts and Mr Leyonhjelm.
The Liberal Democrats secured 0.46 of a quota, or just under half the votes they needed to win a seat in the Upper House.
That meant Mr Leyonhjelm was relying on preferences to make up a full quota.
The Animal Justice Party's Emma Hurst was the surprise winner, securing an Upper House seat on preferences.
Don’t stress yourself, the LDP is more than Leyonhjelm. That’s politics.
back to obscurity, thanks for the laughs. yeah like all those other ldp politicians we all know.
He was a breath of fresh air, with this being one of his finest moments:
He called out stupidity. Got to hand him that. And rarely, if ever, could anyone justify their stupidity or even realise they were trying to defend stupidity.
I just discovered that he was beaten in his seat by a female vegan weightlifter.
It is entertaining, but not for the noble matriarchal narrative any Vegan, Green or lefty feminist has naively dreamed up.
Ironically, most of the male electorate constituents were jovially considering their meat, and Emma's potential intake, when they cast that vote.
I probably would have voted for her too...
Entertainment value is the confirmation that a female vegan can still only capture votes on sex appeal... not policy. (Feminists must love that )
You are bad!
(Insert laughing lots icon)
He’s lost the plot completely. Saw a FB post that basically was five or six paragraphs of whining and slagging off at the party execs AND supporters. He’s a geniiune fucktard, which is unfortunate because a lot of the issues he stood for were genuine issues that need to be addressed and probably won’t now.
Even a monkey with a typewriter manages a meaningful word occasionally.
(present SS trolls excluded!
Apparently he’s been the subject of some less than savoury personal attacks from members of the LDP exec. All this public spat does is to confirm in the minds of his opponents that he’s a twat (which whilst true is unfortunate as he has more to offer than most) and that political parties and politicians are generally dysfunctional.
And the last thing the majority of Australians want is more dysfunctional pollies and their parties.
Explains why I’m an anarchist really.
And can add a little colour
