Foreign students barred from Australian MP internships over spying fears

Post by Guest on Thu Jul 12, 2018 5:53 pm

First topic message reminder :

Australia has barred foreign university students from interning in MPs’ offices following concerns about alleged Chinese espionage and interference in domestic affairs.

The internships are arranged by the Australian National University, which gives course credits to participating students.

But foreign citizens have been barred from taking up the internships following complaints by some MPs about “behind-the-scenes access enjoyed by Chinese students”, according to a report in The Australian Financial Review.

Individual MPs will still be able to offer informal internships and work experience to foreign students.

Australia is one of the world’s most popular destinations for international students.

In April, there were more than 500,000 foreign students at Australian educational institutions, about 30 per cent of whom were from China.

But there have been growing concerns in Australia about alleged meddling by China in domestic politics and at university campuses.

Malcolm Turnbull, Australia’s prime minister, recently passed tough measures to combat foreign interference, including a ban on foreign political donations and a requirement that lobbyists from abroad register their interests.

Xenophobia, like equality or discrimination, are words that need context.  You don't select a spouse equally, you single out the one that best suits you.  It's not equality when you choose one person to marry; it's actually discrimination.  But the context is, you only want one spouse.

Likewise, it's not xenophobia to reserve certain privileges to citizens.  This is especially true in positions of a critical nature, such as people who might come into contact with classified material.

DO I think that to do an internship for a role, with the federal gov't that you need citizenship to hold the real role, you should be a citizen? ... Yes

it's a RW gov't that's making this rule so I would happily bag them out but .... it is actually a rather sensible rule

it not xenophobic since it has nothing to do with race.  Suspect Suspect Suspect Suspect 
It doesn't even matter where you were born, as long as you have got citizenship when you apply for the internship.


The point is, you are on stolen land and have no right to decide who can come there

Only the indegeneous can

Its time we gave back the power to the indegeneous and fucked off out of there, all these Australian twats

I am all for the indegeneous

Get rid of all the white, asian etc Australians

Considering a third that is mixed race is not from the indegeneous, they can fuck off too

No genecoide, just the rightful ethnic cleansing of those illegal Australian twats, in order that the indegeneous be free to live their lives again

SO you call for Genocide and ethnic cleansing because you don't understand the difference between Citizenship and ethnicity.
Don't ever pretend to have the high Moral ground again then Since you are Worse than Hitler. (literally that more genocide then even he attempted)


and for your own Education Aboriginals are one of the most mixed race groups, Over 70% of Aboriginals marry and have children with non Aboriginals

the population data the Australian Bureau of Statistics collects: Mixed relationships, i.e. where one partner is Aboriginal.

The ABS found that “mixed couples as a proportion of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander couples have increased over time from 64% of all couples in 1996 to 70% in 2001, 71% in 2006 and 74% in 2011”.

If only you weren't such a hate filled bigot Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
