A man who lost everything due to the worst floods in years in Northern NSW says he’s just glad that a family of illegal migrants from Sri Lanka are being helped every step of the way.
Chris Carnegie, from Lismore, lost his house, small business and all of his possessions in the flooding and has been living in a tent for weeks with no assistance from government or anyone else.
“Yeh I’ve been living in a tent for the last two months and insurance won’t payout, but I’m sure glad a family that were found not to be refugees seven times are getting money and accommodation when they need it,” Chris said.
‘I don’t know what I’m going to do but it’s great to see the media, especially the ABC, really forget about us working class regional Australians, in favour of some opportunistic third world scam artists backed by activist lawyers and stupid progressive white women.’
“I’m glad those same women were so supportive during the floods with their tweets. But now Scomo is gone, so it’s not Albo’s fault and we’re now about six current things old.’
Chris said he was looking at flying to Indonesia and identifying as a Sri Lankan so he could get on a boat to Ashmore Reef and claim protection so he could get some assistance.
