Tourists to sign up for values?

Australian lawmakers are in a heated debate over a proposal that would require visitors to Australia to sign an ‘Australian values’ pledge before being granted a visa to enter the country, according to published reports. “It’s wrong to expect tourists to sign up to a country s values for a visit,” said Australian Prime Minister John Howard. Prime Minister Howard was replying to proposals by opposition leader Kim Beazley, who had proposed visa reforms to include a section for people to sign up to Australian values, laws and institutions of democracy ( posted by Michael Wukoschitz)
