Australia is home

AUSTRALIA now faces its most turbulent and worrying times as we have now moved into the crosshairs of terrorism.

This is not overstating the era we have now moved into.

Yes, I admit I have never been a great supporter of Tony Abbott, but what his government has achieved with stopping the illegal entry of boat people has been a good move, even if it’s a bit like closing the gate after the horse has bolted.

Immigration since World War II to Australia has been hugely successful as migrants from all over have fitted into the Aussie lifestyle.

As a migrant myself, along with millions of others, I have made Australia my home and raised three kids who have added to Australia, not taken away.

If problems arose in England, there is no way I would head back there as this is home and this is what our latest immigrants have to learn.
