Putting things in perspective

With the opposition immigration spokesperson Scott Morrison back in the media spurting doomsday predictions about Australia’s out of control population growth due to asylum seekers (find the article here), I feel it is important to try and quell these fears with some good old fashioned facts. I have posted this previously on facebook and twitter, but it keeps coming back to try and scare us into xenophobia and racist fear. I feel it is my duty to inform people of the truth so we can all have an informed opinion on the issue. I am all for people having their own opinions. I am very opposed to mis, ill, or uninformed opinions.

I have stolen this from my good friend Micaiah Sells Out who stole it from a friend of his, who got it from Crikey. Although, as I said, I have posted it previously so I’m not all bad.

This just helps us put things back in perspective.
