Bureau of Stats: Oz Immigration off the scale?

NO WONDER the planning for Melbourne is not working, we only get development  without the planning and this is why  -  no one is capable of planning for this sort of growth – it is beyond human ability  and it is beyond the financial  ability of government to handle the necessary infrastructure.   Goodbye to MarvellousMelbourne
  
Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) says today  that Australia’s immigration rate is almost off the scale: 11.1 immigrants per thousand people per year. No other large country has anything like this figure. Even the other three Anglo-Celtic countries with pioneering complexes, Canada, the USA and New Zealand,  limp far behind, at 6.6, 3.3, and 3.1 respectively.
 
Note that ABS, because it can’t criticise government, does not draw attention to this oddity.  It simply lists the figures, at http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/Products/BD1126187E0911B9CA2578B00011964B?opendocument

As usual the ABS stats are for the year ended about 6 months ago, so don't mistake this for old news.

There's already a piece on the AGE's website:
