Aren't 22% of ours Kiwis? ..... they're hard to understand but easy to train ....

They're our little problems. At least we can deport most of the really bad ones.

Getting rid of any more would cause major redundancies in the public service of SE Queensland. Palu-what'sit would be happier though. Better crime stats with less police and prisoners to pay for.

Interesting statistic in our latest census. Australia has 26% of the population born overseas. UK only has 13%. We have twice as many per head of population and have little or no problems. UK has huge problems and wants to stop immigration.

Could it be the attitude towards immigrants of the UK born that causes the problem.

 

Maybe, just maybe, it's due to our migrant population being predominantly of British stock, partly made up of the English you seem to dislike.

These people appear to have assimilated with the population of Australia.

The migrant population of Britain contains some people that will not assimilate.

Maybe  the British Isle can no longer sustain a large influx of migrants. 

Australia seems to depend on large numbers go migrants.

Just a thought.

Your point is well taken, manu.

Those who won't assimilate are the problem.

Our immigrants from UK, NZ, USA, Canada, etc assimilate well because, in general, they have similar lifestyle objectives. But those who prefer to continue their former lifestyle are scorned.  Whether that be unfamiliar (to us) religious activities, being thieving ratbags (Sudanese gangs) or whatever, we don't want them.

 

Even those of our aboriginals who prefer their ancient lifestyle to 'ours' are a problem to us.

The stolen generation was an attempt to fix that one.

Like it or lump it, Australia is The "Hong Kong" or the 21st Century. The majority of investors are Chinese, and if you think that Property prices will come down or flatten out, forget it.

Sydney and Melbourne have now reached a point where 800+ square meter allotments are worth $1M.

Brisbane is not far behind. Get out and go to an Auction near your place on the weekend. You will be amazed at what you see. 

Migrants with no skills just come here for Welfare. Skilled Professionals are coming here to live and prosper.

The days of "We're a Weird Mob" are coming to an end. Welcome to the new Australian greeting "Wei!!! Ma!!"

Incorrect. The majority of our migrants are Asian born.

We also have people who will not assimilate. In the 60s that was just about every group including Brits. The world of soccer in Victoria was a shining example with almost every club ethnically based. I played for an English team. We played Wilhelmenia (Dutch), Hellas (Greek), Hakoah (Jewish), Polonia (Polish) etc etc. the next generation of these people assimilated and eventually took their parents along for the ride.

The same thing has happened with the mass migration of Vietnamese after the "American War". There children have now assimilated. I'm certain the Africans and Arabs will as well. It just takes time and tolerance.

Plus Australia has been enriched and changed by these people.

Maybe the UK has no tolerance and certainly no desire to change. Why would they, the U.K. Was perfect before migration.

If you mean this year migrants, or even the last 5 years migrants I think your statement is incorrect.

I did actually mean migrants over a longer period, since 1945.

 

The other points you raised are perfectly valid. Then you couldn't resist having a knock at the British

This is the status as at the 2016 Census. Not referring to a time period. Given we have people in the census dating back to 1910 I suppose it's only based on the survivors of the last 107 years.

What makes assimilation so difficult in the UK compared to Australia ?
