    Divorce rate is average 50 percent too, even higher in the minorities.

    Welfare started as a death benefit for coal miners widows with so many men dying.
    It was very select.
    Now you never need a job or even a coal mining man to qualify. Just sit at home, watch tv, get fat and keep popping out kids for more money and get free everything.
    60 million bums on the dole and counting.

    Well this is tangled up, but how lives unravel.

    From Melbourne Age.

    A young Iranian refugee was so desperate to get to work on time, it cost a cyclist his life.

    Mehdi Sameri, 20, left for his boss' house on July 24 after a bad sleep, stopping off for a coffee on the way.

    Minutes later, the apprentice plumber fell asleep at the wheel, ran a red light and woke to a bang and the sight of cyclist Colin Waters' helmet hitting his windscreen.

    As the 49-year-old lay dying on a Taylors Lake road, a panicked Sameri drove off.

    When he told his boss what had happened, he was driven back to the scene and then to a police station where he was arrested.

    "It just breaks my heart, you know, I am so sorry. I wish I was dead instead of that person," Sameri told police.

    On Thursday, Sameri cried as he was sentenced to 10 months in a youth prison, after pleading guilty to dangerous driving causing death and failing to stop.

    "You knew you were tired, you stopped and had coffee but you pressed on to drive to the home of your employer, no doubt grateful for the opportunity that he had given to you," County Court Judge Paul Lacava said.

    "You were probably anxious not to be seen as an employee who had to take a day off work or who could not be relied upon to arrive on time. That decision was fateful."

    It "caused the death of a husband, father, son, sibling and friend who was adored by all who were privileged to have made his acquaintance," the judge said.

    Colin Waters, 49, was hit and killed by a car in Taylors Lakes.

    Judge Lacava, however, took into account Sameri's "profound" remorse and troubled background.

    Sameri fled Iran as a young boy with his brother, coming to Australia by boat and being put in immigration detention.

    He promised his parents he would make something of himself but they died in Iran within a year of him settling in Melbourne.

    Just eight days before the fatal crash, Sameri received notification he would become an Australian citizen.

    He may not be deported as his sentence is less than 12 months.

    But Mr Waters' wife Paula, his childhood sweetheart of 27 years, and son Kyle might now be sent back to the UK.

    Mr Waters was working as a Metro Trains contractor on a temporary skilled visa which included his family.

    His brother Steve told reporters the family have not heard from immigration about their status.

    "Mr Sameri has been given leniency so he can at least stay in the country, which is his right, we absolutely accept that but ultimately Paula and Kyle are at risk of being deported and no consideration has been given to them at all," he said.

    Yes, it's wrong on so many levels. With everyone trying to the right thing, the baby been's thrown out with the bath water.

    Just putting it out there. The reason whales beach themselves is evolutionary. They are trying to come ashore. One day, one whale will survive.

    This day has already arrived and I believe they have been successful and already breeding on land. A trip to any Westfield food court can provide evidence of this next step in their evolutionary process.

    Indonesian student jailed as Britain's worst rapist https://www.straitstimes.com/world/...lcJ2yx0HYpTDdJuVN24A38JmkU#Echobox=1578318279

    Sinaga arrived in Britain from his native Indonesia on a student visa in 2007. He received two degrees in sociology and planning from the University of Manchester and was studying for his PhD at the University of Leeds when he was suspended following his arrest in 2017.

    His thesis was called: “Sexuality and everyday transnationalism. South Asian gay and bisexual men in Manchester."

    “It is almost beyond belief that someone who could profess some Christian faith could at the same time have been committing such wicked and evil crimes,“ Judge Goddard said.

    Really? Christian faith qualifies you as a good citizen? There's a few thousand priests whose behaviour fails to back that up.
