More than 150,000 Germans packed their bags and left in 2004—the greatest exodus in any single year since the late 1940s.
And where are these unhappy slap-dancers going? Well, among other places, to Australia:
New Immigration Department figures show 123,424 people decided to call Australia home last financial year, the highest number since the 145,316 recorded in 1988-89.
Welcome, Germans! And welcome also to 5000 refugees, 33,000 from Asia, 24,000 from Africa and the Middle East, 2000 from North America, 17,000 from New Zealand …
(Those figures will come as a surprise to The Guardian, which believes John Howard was “re-elected last year on a hardline anti-immigration platform.”)
