    Australia has always had racist immigration policies which excluded non white people from immigrating there. This is just a continuation of it.

    Cry me a river. Austrialians can choose who ever they want to migrate into their country.

    FFS! Why do people who have no knowledge of statistics insist on making comments like this?
    A sample of 1000 is perfectly adequate to give accurate results for a population of 25 million. Here's a couple of screen shots of sample size calculators. And a link so you can do your own.

    If you support a blanket ban on an entire group of people because of their religion then I would regard you to be a bigot.
    Would you regard everyone who supported the exclusion of a group of people because of the ideological views of that group as bigoted?

    Before you accept the poll results as gospel, remember that some of the surveys taken pre-referendum had 75% support for Remain.
    And post referendum, it would appear that around 75% support staying in Europe, unfortunately many of them didn't vote. You are assuming that the proportion of turnout as the same for both camps.
    People tend to be less motivated to vote if they think their side is certain to win.

    The ruling powers want Muslims to be moved out of their homelands so what Australian people think is irrelevant to them
    for what purpose?

    Calm down, surely they have a point? Imagine if they only asked like 2.313 million people, that would only be 10% of the population, they didn't even ask 90%!

    They have such strict laws on what comes in to the country to protect their wildlife, makes sense for the people to do the same

    Saudi Arabia operates a non-Muslim ban in Mecca. I guess if they really wanted, they could try and implement a similar system as Saudi Arabia does here.

    It's clearly not the same. If I apply for a VISA to visit Mecca and I'm a Muslim, I ask for my priest (or however their clergy is called - Imam? Mullah? don't know) to confirm that I'm a Muslim or I'm baptised/circumcised as a Muslims (are Muslims baptised?).

    How are you going to verify that a person is not a Muslim? what is he going to have to prove and how?

    As I read that I was just thinking to myself, man I wanna pour bleach down this guy's throat and break his fingers, then I saw you're joking.

    Easy. You ask them to recite the shahadah. If they can't they are clearly not Muslim.
