Liberals encourage Chinese to finance and build dams in the north

The Ord River Dam

Under a Liberal Party plan to build 100 dams, much of northern Australia could become a Chinese territory which would control a majority of farm and grazing land across three states.

Chinese interests have expressed interest in constructing more dams, a proposition encouraged by Opposition Leader Tony Abbott when releasing the party’s latest election strategy

The Vision 2030 plan to develop northern Australia is a re-badged proposal trotted out at the last three elections by the Liberal Party.

Last year the West Australian Government granted a Chinese Government-backed company 15,000 hectares of newly developed prime OrdRiver irrigation country which cost $400 million of taxpayers funds to develop.

The company has an option on an adjoining, undeveloped 15,000 hectares, intended to grow more food for China.

These extensive WA land and irrigation assets, combined with the proposal to develop more arable land in the Northern Territory and north west Queensland will allow the Chinese to control a vast expanse of northern Australia.

This land transfer has serious defence implications obviously ignored by the ALP and Liberals.

The Liberal Party and its leader Tony Abbott have encouraged Chinese ownership in Australia claiming overseas ‘investment’ in agriculture is necessary for development.

The recent controversial sale of the countrys largest irrigation farm, Cubby Station located in the far south west of Queensland to a Chinese company sparked grave misgivings among the general public and farmers

So-much-so that Katters Australian Party leader Bob Katter, himself raised in the far north west town of Cloncurry, has prepared legislation to reverse the sale of Cubby Station.

Katter says Australian farming assets should be majority owned by Australians to maintain food sovereignty.

A huge battle over the foreign ownership of land is looming between KAP, the Liberals and the ALP in the upcoming election campaign.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

    Just lease the land- seems simple enough or are international investors seeking more. Will our Poli protectors do their mandate.Presently the government allows (under free trade ) our Best food to be exported and allow degraded food products in through New Zealand. I know u know polies know but the deals go on. Suggestion “put tariffs on exports” and watch the “Carpetbaggers dissapear “, If Katter is the “Man” let’s hear more than just snippets from his handlers and fashion designers..He could be our next “Chipps Rafforty”
