|Foster's could make another "How to Speak Australian" ad. In Australia, Derryn Hinch means "assclown."|
What i'd like to know is how far up his ass did he dig to pull out this stat. There is no way Australia even has 100,000 registrants. Australia's population is less than a tenth of the US population (29 MILLION people). Texas has a population of 26,000 folks and has less than a hundred thousand, and even if Australia had 100,000 registrants, they'd pretty much ALL have to be traveling to Indonesia just to match this outlandish claim.
Derryn Hinch in push to strip convicted sex offenders of their passports

Newly elected Victorian Senator Derryn Hinch says he will push to strip convicted sex offenders of their passports.
Mr Hinch, who has long called for a national public register for sex offenders, read out a letter from actress Rachel Griffiths during a Melbourne Press Club address which asked for his support to help prevent child sex tourism.
"100,000 convicted sex offenders on the register ... the private register, go to Indonesia every year," he said in response to the letter.
"They're not going there for the sun, they're going there for the sons and the daughters.
"That's [an issue] that I can get involved in, and they are the sort of thing I want to do."
Mr Hinch also hinted that candidates from his Justice Party may run in upcoming state elections to campaign on law and order issues.
"Watch this space, and that's not just Victoria," he said.
But he said on principle, he would remove state governments altogether.
"I don't think we need them, we've got a federal system, we've got a federalised government," he said.
