This Australian politician is waging an active war against Indian-style squat toilets because she thinks it may cost the country “its way of life.” Giving the perfect example of xenophobia Pauline Hanson, a Queensland representative in the Australian senate rants about a taxation office introducing Indian style toilets to cater to the 20% of its workforce.
An official from the taxation office said, “We are committed to maintaining an inclusive workplace that engages, informs and supports all our employees, whatever their background. This commitment includes building designs with a range of facilities that cater for the different needs of our employees.”
She released a video captioned, “Just when you thought our PC brigade couldn’t be any more backward, someone came up with an idea to put squat toilets into the new Australian Tax Office in Melbourne. Why? Because over 20% of the ATO workforce in Melbourne come from NON ENGLISH SPEAKING BACKGROUNDS.”
The important question this politician asks is “if they can’t work out how to use a westernised toilet, how are they expected to work out our tax system?” “I know what is more confusing than using our toilets, it is doing our tax” she added.
Apparently, she feels that those who might be more comfortable squatting while taking a dump may just not be intelligent enough to figure out Australian taxation laws. Her racist stance was highlighted when a Facebook user commented on her video with a simple question: “And how much is this costing the Australian taxpayer?” Her answer was worrisome, to say the least: “It’s not just a matter of dollars Wade. It starts with toilets and ends with costing us our Australian way of life.”
