I just love this little piece from Gerard Henderson in today’s SMH :
Ah its the old politics of identity and our friends from the left seem really intent upon having a monopoly upon who can call themselves this or that. Frankly the sooner we remove any and all largess that relies upon any sort of racial qualification the better this nation will be in terms of social harmony. Then it will be of no consequence if anyone wants to call themselves “aboriginal”, Immigrant or gasp even a Londoner. Because it simply won’t matter where anyone comes from what will matter is who you are now and if you are in need. Then it should be your need and not your ethnicity that matters to qualify you for any largess and assistance of from the government.
