So many businesses going off shore, people complaining about job losses, the catalyst being the result of high wages and high demand for items the hoipoloi cannot afford, theft and drugs meaning higher insurance premiums more coppers on the beat, and to clean up the mess and hide the problem by incarcerating our crims we need prison officers and blood sucking lawyers to add to the general cost of living, there are other factors which unnecessarily jack up our outgoings but those mentioned can serve the purpose for the moment and here is one job export which would clean up the place.and send a few ambulance chasers broke unless they moved off shore to chase the lower paid jobs, (in this case defence lawyers in Singapore and Malaysia with sod all hope of winning drug related cases
My suggestion is that, the Australian Govt reach a bipartisan agreement with the Singaporean Or Malaysian Govt or both and have all drug related offences from Australia proven in Australian lower courts transferred to those in Singapore or Malaysia, who still abide by inherited British and Australian laws in most situations.
The Singapore & Malaysian justice system would be much cheaper overall, taking in consideration their lower wage structure, speedier sentencing and lower cost of fewer detainees, their draconian laws allowing maximum penalties to be approved meaning the absence of the Lazarus thingy, no second chances.
People arriving in Australia who are apprehended carrying miscellaneous drugs of varying amounts usually cop a seven year sentence, which usually terminates earlier than the prescribed sentence, These people only get caught occasionaly, meaning the other profitable occasions created misery for drug users and the general public and a rise in the cost of living created usually by theft.
The main problem passing any legislation to bring this idea to fruition is the baulking influence of the main users, our peers, Politicians, lawyers and big business icons and the Crooks that keep them in power.
If you are a druggy, watch out or one day you may have a dangling good weekend.
And for all you nice people and young lovers have an enjoyable weekend.
