Think it's a bit presumptious of you to call people wishing to emigrate to Australia ignorant. Particularly as you add very little knowledge yourself to the topic.
As one of those 50,000 Australians (I'm in Singapore), I can say that there are numerous reasons why people would move from their home country. Personally I've come to Singapore for a bit of personal growth, career opportunity and financial benefits, all mixed together. I'd say that the same could be said for numerous people who want to emigrate to Australia.

Question, if Australia is within 5 countries for work, why is there a large proportion of professional leaving?
Any Aussies, Singy or Msian that left Oz, care to educate the ignorant group of people rushing there ?
