Socialist Republik of Queensland forcing farmers off their land

Queensland Treasury Corporation on its knees – trading insolvent

Unable to offer freight subsidies ALP drives in last nail for primary producers

The Queensland corporate Government has again proven its disdain for the bush, ripping vital water, fodder and livestock freight subsidies from the hands of drought-stricken producers, State KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter has said.

 Mr Katter said it was telling that the Minister for Agricultural Industry Development, Comrade Mark Furner, had revoked the subsidies only months after the North West cattle industry was decimated by almost 10 years of drought followed by extreme torrential rain.

Queensland’s three commissars, Comrade Premier Palaszczuk; Comrade Agriculture Minister Furner; Comrade Jacquie Trad ensuring cattle and sheep producers can never survive the next drought. They intend to hand back all once-viable grazing and farming properties to blackfellas after the farmers have been forced off.

 The Minister announced on Friday that the subsidies would end due to the “poor management decisions” of those farmers who accessed the scheme.

 Minister Furner said producers who already live in drought-declared areas — around 65 per cent of the state — would not immediately be affected by the changes, but they will when their drought declarations are lifted.

 Mr Katter said the recent partial revocation of drought declarations in the Flinders Shire and Charters Towers Regional Council areas meant producers in these parts would never receive the subsidies again.

 “If you’re going to take away something then what is the alternative to try stabilise a critical rural industry through prolonged drought?” Mr Katter said.

 “This doesn’t just hit the producers themselves, but all of the contractors built around that industry as well – this is an industry-crippling decision targeting people who are already on their knees.

 “I mean no disrespect, but the fact is that this has been signed off by a Minister who lives in Brisbane, has always live in Brisbane, and would find it very difficult to understand how these natural events can rip through otherwise well-performing battlers in the industry that we need to retain in the future.

 “I almost choked on my cup of tea when I heard the Premier refer to Minister Furner as the ‘Farmer’s Friend’ in Parliament a few weeks ago; we are all being taken for a ride here.

 “I am unsure as to how bad things need to get before our governments realise the actual value of our food production industries.

 “We’ll likely be spooning processed foreign meat out of tin by then, because it is getting near on impossible to achieve sustainability in our food production industries in this state.

 “My recommendation, and the recommendation of many, has long been the establishment of a government-owned and run Rural Reconstruction Board.

 “This would mean the government could utilise its advantageous borrowing rates to provide new credit to the well-performing primary producers who are struggling on their balance sheets.

 “This is not about propping up inefficient business, but about increasing self-sufficiency and negating the need for government subsidies and handouts altogether.

 “Overall it would save the state money, but I note this is something neither Labor nor the LNP has given the time of day.”

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.

    I refer to Robbie Katter comment that we will be spooning imported meat from a tin. I would suggest that he unglue himself from his comfy chair and have a look in some super mark shelves. At Mareeba IGA at the delicatessen the Roast beef is proudly sold containing 95 percent Aussie content and all the other goods have a minimal amount of Australian content. I have even today found in a store a Sanitarium product being sold proudly 5% Australian content.
    A genuine Australian grocery item is a more endangered species than what a true Australian is these days.
    Regain our independence from all these foreign goods. Help our primary producers and develop some water storages and distribution systems.

  2. Beats me what a so called politician uses for brains. They only want coffee people here, the racist pigs do not like white folks. There IS NO BIGGER PICTURE here. It is true that ‘Australian’ products have ‘5%’ of Australian produce in the ingredients. What utter bullshit.

  3. Aren’t the freight subsides covered by the Federal Government drought assistance scheme ?

  4. Bob Katter should start by outing the fact that the Qld State Government is unlawful because of the sine die Upper House.And that has been going on for a long time!!! Best regs Gary

      And they also fail to meet the requirements of a State Legislature under the Constitution with respect to the structure of Government that they agreed to at Federation.

      Plus the fact that the Senate can’t dissolve its self because it is the Peoples House and removal has not been approved at referendum…

      The Palletjack Gubbermint is a business with ABN trading under copyrighted legislation…

  5. Why would you expect anything different when you allowed your country to become a socialist nation? The powers that be drain the nation of all assets/money and the people are left to starve – Like Venezuela! Wake up and toss the socialists out.

    This situation is nothing new for Queensland. They forced many of us off our residential land many years ago and no one seems to give a damn. Some of the people I know took their own lives in despair and many of us including children disabled, elderly and families forced homeless into poverty.
