New Ozzie PM adopts old line on immigration
Australia's new Prime Minister Julia Gillard has vowed not to let "political correctness" get in the way of tackling immigration, signalling a tough line on the issue, according to World News Australia.
Gillard, who got the top job after former PM Kevin Rudd chose not to stand, has said people should not be called racist for raising concerns about asylum seekers.
"I certainly dismiss labels like intolerant or racist because people raise concerns about border security, but we've also got to be very alive to the complexity of this and that there's no quick fix," Gillard told the Sunday Telegraph.
Oh, dear, I hope she's not going to use the old (and rather tired) line about so-called political correctness every time she wants to do something that is not very enlightened.
