Tim Blair complains about the journalists who wrote this article's desperate attempts to cast a negative slant on the immigrant experience in Australia.

Forty per cent of the national sample said Australia was tolerant compared to 47 per cent Lebanese and 67 per cent of Vietnamese. The authors surmised this probably reflected that the migrants - particularly those from refugee backgrounds - were comparing their new home to their country of origin.

Let's suggest another theory: Vietnamese immigrants to Australia find Australia tolerant towards them because it is tolerant towards them.
