  1. Isn’t [it] funny that ten years ago One Nation was calling for a citizenship test and calls on stronger position on immigration. In response both Labour and Liberal parties called One Nation racist and insulting.

    Ten years later, both major parties copyed One Nation’s policies on immigration and citizenship test. Why you ask? Because Liberal Party are oppo[r]tunistic bastards who want to stay in power and will say any shit to fool Australians into voting for them.
