Out of the frying pan

From the BBC:

Australian former anti-immigration politician Pauline Hanson is selling up and heading to Britain, according to an interview with an Australian magazine.

She told Women's Day that Australia was no longer a land of opportunity and she had "had enough" of living there.

She told the magazine she would "never be given a chance to re-enter parliament" and wanted to "get out there" while she still had her health.

"Sadly, the land of opportunity is no more applicable," she said, blaming high taxes, over-regulation and a "lack of true representation".

So she's moving to Britain. Shall I tell her or will you?

Britain's national IQ will be lowered the moment her plane lands. [Apparently, she has some experience running fish and chips shops.]

Canada, Australia,USA.
All the English speaking nations seem to be slipping into despotic control freak government at the moment.
I think the reason is we all took our personal freedoms for granted and let our guard slip.
Look what happened when we did.
Where as in other nations that had come out of Fascism or communism the populus were more wary of their governments.

We now have Liberal socialist" "professional liars" As so called leaders.
Quite horrible.
