Somewhere like Griffith is probably not a bad spot to live if you've recently been accepted as a refugee. The area was developed by post-war immigrants, so it's wog heaven. There's lots of entry level jobs that anyone can do even if you have little or no English - but are willing to work hard. The place is over run with backpackers every year from every corner of the globe, who speak every language imaginable, and they all seem to get work picking and packing fruit and so on.
The lefties, and the Greens in particular, are full of compassion for refugees. All the refugees I have ever met (and I won't claim to have met a lot) want to get on with life. They want to work, buy a house, perhaps start a business, get the kids educated and so on. I am yet to meet a slack-arsed no-hoper.
And that's exactly what those resettled refugees in the Griffith area have done - found employment, picked up English as they went and settled into the community. However, the Greens will destroy their way of life if the water cuts go through. They'll be out of work, they'll lose their homes and businesses and they'll have to move their families elsewhere and start again. The most vulnerable members of the community will be those that will suffer first.
I bet the Greens never factored that in. Where's their compassion now?
