    Surely this article does not leave the reader with the impression that the LNP is adding minor window dressing to an existing working scheme from the ALP days, trumpet how tough they are on foreigners and dog whistle to the racist vote that has drifted to Hanson? They wouldn’t do that, would they?

    Change without difference, purely political pandering.

    There are Australians on Groot Eylandt who would probably fail the English test.
