Australia for sale

Source: Facebook

For the past few decades we have been hearing how wonderful our association is with the fascist-communist one party state of China, which executes thousands of its own every year.

The Chinese obviously regard Aussies as apathetic dopes, too busy watching the footy and guzzling beer and generally becoming welfare dependent drones. How do I know? I Teach their kids to speak English and they are bright as tacks and sharp as nails, eager to learn and succeed.

But the real evidence  is in this map which shows how our governments have been selling Australia out from underneath us. Look at it and weep. ‘Poor fella my country’ indeed.

    “Source Facebook”
    Facebook can’t be given as a source.

      Doesn’t matter… Oz and the third world are being bought up for metals and agriculture at an alarming rate and why, somebodies got to supply the demand of the population mass!

  2. Chris Roberts says:

    This map is completely bogus. 12.4% of Australian land is foreign owned and Chinese interests are a minor part of that.

    More realistic analysis here:

    This is a fine piece of demagoguery M Mizzi.
    Why don’t you team up with fellow Hansonite Matt Hartley?
    It would no doubt be a productive duet.

      So you feel OK doing business with a nation that destroys the environment, makes crap out of precious resources and gets rich off slave wages? Maybe you should join every other dupe in history.

        Thanks for your thoughts Mike.
        My complaint was about Hansonesque demagoguery.I did not offer my perspectives on international trade nor the resources industry.
        Since you raised the issue – I should state that I advocate for Australia’s mineral resources being left where they are.
        If you are interested in a less hackneyed perspective of the Chinese development process that eschews demagoguery and histrionics I recommend a book by Peter Nolan, Professor of development studies at Cambridge, titled “Is China Buying the World?” It’s in our local library.
        Cheers

    The map actually shows how much mineral wealth the Chinese have a large financial interest in as outlined by this article. http://content.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1879866,00.html As we have seen with mines like the Shenhua one in NSW when mines are dug farmland goes Must be nice to be able to jump up and down accusing people of racism while the nations wealth is being sold to the Fascist Chinese state. You all sound confused.
