Relations with China have changed much from Prime Minister Whitlam’s establishment of diplomatic relations in 1972, and the 1973 diplomatic trip that paved the way for rapid expansion.
By 2008 Australia’s two-way trade with China was worth some $68Bn.
However, with the reign of Xi Jinping China has rapidly grown as a World Power … yet it has taken the Liberal Coalition a long time to come to terms with this!
In delaying action to address our reliance on the PRC as our major market!
We have in fact exported Australian businesses and jobs to the PRC … we have lost much of our manufacturing to China so that now we are in short supply of cars, building materials, and more … much of which are imported from China!
WHAT about the IRONY of the sell-out of Australia … that has accelerated since 2013?
The TROJAN HORSE of fly in and buy-up of our property from the great behemoth above, Singapore and Hong Kong?
When last we looked there have been no changes to the FIRB Ruling allowing developers to sell 100% of ‘new homes’ to foreign buyers esp. in China; this accelerated from 2013!
And the Morrison government ‘Under the Cover of Covid’ quietly began prioritising visas for ultra-wealthy foreign investors late last year’ (2020!!!)
The LIBERAL COALITION has not introduced the second tranche of the Anti-Money Laundering Laws for the real estate gatekeepers. In fact they were made exempt in October 2018! So that ‘Black Money’ from China is awash in our Real Estate!
The Irony of all this is, we must make sure we can rely on our allies, the USA and UK for protection because we are so hopelessly backward with our military capabilities, it’s laughable.
As CROOK as this government is on every policy under the sun with a prime example such as the sell-out of our property – residential, commercial and agricultural to these foreigners …
And Australia’s economy is based on Housing rather than investing in green jobs, artificial intelligence and robotics like China and the United States, our wall of money is wasted on Real Estate!
AS said by Economist Yanis Varoufakis recently on ABC Q & A!
Now given the constant bullying and threats of sorts from the great behemoth above and beyond, so that when it comes to border control and hard-line security, the LNP make much of their stance now through the media that they are doing something … but at the Taxpayers expense …
Who are buying this?
SO we must remind ourselves and others that the ScOmO government have not earnt another shot at winning the next election!
Following daily reports of rising Covid-19 victims and the everlasting lockdowns … with loss of life for too many … enormous stress and strain for medical professionals, many Australians suffering Long Covid, businesses and livelihoods destroyed … the devastating impact of this may live on for decades.
Why did ScOmO Government fail to order the Pfizer when documents reveal that Pfizer reached out in June 2020 for a meeting with federal Health Minister Greg Hunt, but he did not take up the invitation! Inadequate supplies slowed the rollout. This government failed to build quarantine stations hence the spread through the hotels, and the wider community!
Why did ScOmO seize on this AUKUS Pact with much media fanfare … is there an election coming up?
On Tuesday, 14 September 2021 ScOmO greeted the media … it looks like they were all there …
‘G’day’ he said, and announced that the ‘relatively benign security environment’ is now behind us, and that Australia is now a party to a partnership with the United Kingdom and the United States to maintain peace, stability and security in this our region!’
Apart from this binding Australia to a US war on China … it has led to France recalling their diplomats from Australia … today we heard a news report that ScOmO talked with the French a day ahead of this announcement, and that allegedly there had been problems with the French submarines that had not been resolved.
WHO will foot the BILL to compensate the French, and Who will foot the bill for these very expensive nuclear submarines through this partnership with the US and the UK?
TAXPAYERS … not the wealthy investor class who eliminate taxation, but the pay as you earn taxpayer mugs …
… who are looking to a future of life long tenancy … with very little prospects as they have insecure work and low wages …
This was all set in train with the policies of the Howard Government in the late 1990s and ScOmO counts the former prime minister John Howard as his political inspiration.
In the Abbott Coalition Government ScOmO was unflinching in the plan to “stop the boats”. With a policy of turning back boats that attempted to reach Australia. “If people seek to get here the wrong way, they won’t get here,” he said.
YET foreign money launderers can fly in and buy our homes! And gain a Permanent Resident Visa!!
There are too many other failures of this government to mention … as we are subject to this latest CHARADE!!!
