It won't be long... [updated]

“We’re going to New Zealand, please help us,”

The hordes have forsaken Oz as the destination of choice and are but a stone's throw over the horizon. God help us when one of these laden with potential new residents actually arrives on our shores. You ain't seen fear of xenos yet! And pollies running for cover.

Where's that Air Force when you need some long range detection? Oh, that's right, it's still wrapped up in white plastic.

But then, maybe an over-painted rust-bucket will turn up in time to rally voters for Winnie?


"Our very simple message to them is they are not welcome here," Mr Key said.

"It confirms what I've been saying for some time; it's only a matter of time before large vessels, steel-hulled vessels capable of navigating their way to New Zealand or Canberra or far away parts of the world, would try and make their way here, and it's vehemently possible that this boat was intending to do that.''

Key says what needs to be said, but I'm sure his tune will change should a rust bucket actually arrive. (For Adolf, via the Southern Ocean about two to three weeks out of Ceylon.) As an aside for Johnny 'The Navigator', I'd really like to see how large steel hulled vessels will make it to Canberra.

I wouldn't get too excited if I were you. Go and look at a map and then calm down.

It's a hell of a lot further and rougher from Xmas Island to NZ than it is from Indonesia to Xmas.

These buggers aren't steaming into Sydney harbour, you know.

Well, I dunno--if a useless commie troughing lying Welsh cow can make it, anything can.
