You really have to hand it to the press gallery. They are completely, totally and utterly obsessed with increasing immigration. They will pay any price, bear any burden, to suit their proprietors and advertisers interests by endless promoting it on the slightest of pretexts.
Step forward Peter Hartcher at this link in the Fairfax online newspapers. China’s crackdown on Hong Kong means…you guessed it; we need to have unlimited immigration from there!
Of course, there’s the usually logically inept handwaving about how they’re all skilled (nope, and there’s no skill shortages anyway; and haven’t been any for decades), we need the human capital to fill the jobs (there were never any jobs before Covid, and there’s absolutely none after) etc etc.
The real reason is, of course, never stated: ‘We run a population ponzi which has collapsed so we desperately need more people to prop it up’. But then, that’s not as catchy as the rubbish and increasingly threadbare and obvious crap peddled by the population pushers.
