Brisbane refugee

4BC Drive: Stuart Crow is a local business owner in Milton who came to work this week to find 30-40 refugees camped on his premises with little to no warning.

Crow is told they have been placed there by the Multicultural Development Association and is concerned for his staff who are working amongst these people.

Blog comments Your Say

  • @Barry Mackenzie
    Point 1 - Nope
    Point 2 - Yep
    Point 3 - All Australians have been wronged by them.
    Point 4 - NO it was not, it was the lowest primary vote and actually elected by 3 self serving independents, so is that democracy.
    Point 5 - It was not about the quality of the talk, it was all prenegotiated amongst the losers of the election.
    PS: do not call me mate you Australian and Australia hating communist pissant.

  • Barry Mackenzie, a while back you had spit at me and informed me that you were trained at Duntroon, an Australian Army officer training establishment. I have always questioned in my mind the validity of that statement. Now after your last post, I now know it is not true because no way would a Duntroon officer have so many spelling and grammar mistakes in the one paragraph.

  • @Barry,
    There is evidence emerging that the Eureka stockade was nothing more than a folktale.

  • So mick mate, Have the Unions ever done anything good in your view? You seem to have a bit of a hard on about them. Perhaps you have been wronged somewhere in the past. Also this Government was Ellected by the people of Australia, every single mp Labor, Liberal National, Independant etc, has been ellected by their constituants. Then well as your so politicaly astuts you can figure out the rest. Or perhaps you are just not impressed that Mr Abbott, did not have better skill at talking the Greens etc into forming Government with him. You will get you chance next year mate, just vote Liberal.

  • I also think it is bigger story than it is. For starters why have these people been placed in a commercial building with no proper cooking/bathroom facilities? On the flip side why weren't tenants in the building informed this was going to happen by the owner? This surely has to be illegal? Did she think they would not notice?

  • Hi,

    How come when I do a google search this story does not appear any where? I found a blog and 4bc that was it! Nothing on the Courier or Brisbane Times...is it just me or should this be a bigger story than it apparently is? Yes, I know that it was a story on one of the tabloid shows last night.
