Who needs Cov19-releasing enemies when we have the Qld Labor Government?

A knee-jerk decision by the State Labor Government to implement a blanket shut down of all Queensland ports to foreign ships until they go through a two-week quarantine period could see North Queensland lose millions of dollars from the local live export industry.

 Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) MPs have called out Maritime Safety Queensland’s (MSQ’s) decision, which will exclude all foreign ships from pilotage areas at Queensland ports until 14 days has elapsed since leaving their last international port due to concerns over COVID-19, as an over-reach.

While the Qld cattle market prospers for the first time in decades after years of drought, the Labor Premier Comrade Annastacia Palaszczuk, a second generation Labor politician ruins cattle producers overnight by stopping live export ships from docking in Qld. Under the guise of possible Cov19 infected crew coming ashore she has done a Gillard and Bourke to producers. Darwin still docks ships and simply prohibits crew from coming ashore.

 It follows discussions today between the KAP and Townsville feedlot and export operator Py Porter, who manages Kellys Yards, Queensland Livestock Exporters’ Association president Greg Pankhurst, Frontier International managing director Will McEwin and Frontier logistics operator Tom Emery.

 State KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said there were fears Queensland’s live export market would be severely impacted at a time when economic stability across all sectors was desperately needed.

 “The North’s live export trade is facing an extremely dire situation as a result of this blanket ban,” said Mr Katter said.

 “Live export is a critical part of the supply chain in northern Australia and the middle of this year will see a lot of producers looking for markets to sell cattle as the grass is minimal.

 “This decision is going to mean that areas such as Cloncurry and Mount Isa will be sending cattle to Darwin as a result of this blanket quarantine policy, with North Queensland losing out on millions of dollars.”

 KAP Hinchinbrook MP Nick Dametto said there was no reason why MSQ could not adopt Darwin’s approach to commercial vessels, which instead of imposing a quarantine has implemented measures that restrict the crew from disembarking.

 “Persons loading cattle from the docks and the people on those vessels do not meet each other anyway, so Darwin’s measures make far more sense. Restrict the crew from disembarking and you’ve already minimised the chances of

COVID-19 spreading through human-to-human contact,” he said.

 “With the current air travel restrictions in place also impacting box meat supply to places like Indonesia and Vietnam, there is already an increased demand for Australian live export.

 “But if our customers can’t access our ports in a timely manner, Queensland is going to miss the boat.

 “Graziers have been doing it tough for too many years and all of a sudden an economic opportunity is here for them to capitalise on, all they need is for the government to get out of the way and let them do business.

 “One cattleman we’ve spoken to fears the live export market will crash because of these port restrictions with little to no consultation by the State Government.”

 “I understand there is a vessel due to come into Townsville early next month, which means they would have to hold offshore empty for the 14-day quarantine costing a significant amount of money in carrier fees per seven day waiting period. This is unacceptable,” Mr Katter said.

 “Think about the knock-on effects to the industry chain, such as hay suppliers, fodder suppliers, vets, consumables from local agribusiness stores and cattle agents.

 “The state needs to remove this restriction and the Federal Government should immediately classify the cattle supply chain as an essential industry. We cannot afford to lose it.”

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.

    The ‘Australian’ government is doing it’s best to destroy the well-being and rights/freedoms of Australians on the false pretext of a medical emergency crisis due to a supposedly ‘deadly’ virus flu. It is getting away with these nation-wrecking policies criminality because Australians are too weak, dumb, gullible and lacking in courage/initiative to unite in groups to confront and demand basic accountability to national loyalty from these traitors infesting the entire dysfunctional and disease-ridden government structure.

    The enemy-controlled lying mass-media is engaged in psychological warfare hysterical over the top fear-mongering of this inconsequential flu. Please head over to http://www.renegadetribune.com to learn of the identity of this enemy of mankind. And if you want a good debunking of ‘corona flu virus’ hoax, please read articles at https://blog.nomorefakenews.com.

    Therefore, Australians, start forming group meetings to gather strength in numbers for a time of spontaneous revolt of the people to defy government tyranny that is rapidly descending upon us all. Fight back or deserve the communist-style state-approved gulags and detention camps where millions would be tortured till death. Stalin and Mao would be suitably impressed with the improved methods of mass-murder by these next generation psychopath executioners.

  3. Traitors! will stop at nothing . to achieve their Fabian . socialist agenda !
