Thoughtless senators refuse to allow importation of good second hand cars

Brainless senators cut off their noses to spite their face

Speaking after the defeat of his amendments to the Road Vehicle Standards Bill 2018, Senator Anning expressed his disappointment that party politics couldn’t be put aside to give Aussies access to late model reliable, affordable second hand vehicles.

“It’s bitterly disappointing my amendment to the Road Vehicle Standards Bill 2018 was voted down. It would have meant that hundreds of thousands of Australian working families who currently struggle to afford a reliable car would have been able to afford one.” Senator Anning said.

Senator Fraser Anning knocked back by senate over importation of good second hand cars for financially-stressed motorists

“This would have been a direct and immediate improvement to their living standards, yet the Senate rejected it out of hand.” Senator Anning continued.

“The amendment I moved mirrored recommendations by the Productivity Commission. It was very reasonable and would have gone a long way to improve the motoring industry in the Australia.”

“The recommendations suggested the Government progressively relax restrictions on the importation of second-hand passenger and light commercial vehicles; and called on the Government to relax import restrictions on second-hand cars to allow widespread wholesale importation of late model second-hand vehicles from countries such as Japan.”

“The simple fact is that relaxing import restrictions on late model second-hand cars and commercials would increase the supply in Australia, increasing competition amongst sellers and driving down prices,” Senator Anning continued.

“The only opponents of this measure are the new vehicle dealers, who see an increase in their supply of good, reliable second-hand cars as a threat to their own profits. Well, I say that the government isn’t here to protect the profits of a minority at the expense of everyone else.”

“Unfortunately this Senate is more intent on passing Greens legislation which will increase the cost of living, than reducing the cost of living for Aussies already struggling to stay afloat.” Senator Anning concluded.

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.

  1. I’m finding Australia under control of many things, this used car issue is one. The over-the-counter meds for mild issues and by prescription only. We can’t down trees on our property or kill a poisonous snake if threatened. You are saving us from ourselves because we all brains and common sense. The regulations are harsh and too tight. Please relax and I bet we’d take of ourselves without government. Thank you.
