Imported diseased prawns from China killing another vital food industry

Welcome news from the Liberal and Labor church of free trade – Adam Smith would be proud of Mr Turnbull, Mr Shorten and their Uruguay DOFAT mandarins

Today the Queensland Government has confirmed White Spot virus has been found in wild prawns in Moreton Bay off Brisbane and now cannot be stopped.

 KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter said, “I congratulate the Government of the Australia with their Free Trade policies and no quarantine.

 “Our prawn industry has been sacrificed on the altar of Free Trade.

The sacrificial altar of free trade, a policy of the LNP and ALP, has killed off the Queensland farmed and wild prawn industry. Katter warns it will eventually decimate Far North Qld wild stocks and farms

 “Not only all our industries have been exported overseas, and our jobs exported overseas but you’ve imported workers from overseas, which has been a cancer upon our pay and conditions and job opportunities in Australia  — but now you’ve succeeded in destroying our oceans.

 “Because the currents flow north, White Spot will now be taken up the Qld coast and infect the Great Barrier Reef.

 “This was done with eyes wide open.

 “Every single person associated with the prawn industry and every scientist who ever looked at this knew if you brought the prawns in, you’d bring the White Spot in… and the IHHNV and heaven only knows which hundreds of other diseases we haven’t identified…and these damn people in Canberra run around talking about our clean green image,” said Mr Katter.

 The Australian Prawn Farmers Association (APFA) President Matt West owns a prawn farm in the Mackay region. In a media report from January this year, Mr West says although his stock are some distance from the Sth East Qld region damaged by the outbreak, the disease can spread rapidly, “especially if it gets hold in the wild”.

NB: Cairns News published an exclusive story on January 10, 2107 about Chinese prawn importer Sino deliberately altering prawn samples for biosecurity testing. The company has been charged by Federal Police for falsifying records allowing white spot infected prawns to be introduced into Queensland. Imported green prawns  infected with white spot virus used by anglers for fish bait are thought to have infected seven Gold Coast prawn farms and now Moreton Bay near Brisbane.

    This is not the last time that an Australian industry will be effected by an imported diese this is the prawning industry and is only one of many that will be effected by an imported diese that cost Australians money and jobs , when will the Australian government stop importing items that will cost our economy jobs and money . What’s next is our orchard industry going to be wiped out , are our beef cattle and milking cattle going to be wiped out with some exotic diese , when voting vote for a candidate not a party that will sign a contract with the people to get rid of deals like free trade deals that are helping to kill australian industries .

This Is all Happening because our Party Leaders Have an Overblown EGO Problem, in That they Are Forever Trying to Impress Despotic Nations at the Cost of our Standing in the World,That they have an Abundance of Wealth and Wish to Give it All away,I don’t know how come we have reached this crossroads without Mass Demonstrations Against Those Egoists that Steer our Country.We Must Have it Too Cushy.
