Katter says ditch Facebook and start building our own social media platform

Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter says Facebook’s ‘dummy-spit’ over proposed Federal Government laws that would make them pay for news, is a golden opportunity for the Australian Government to build its own social media platform.

Mr Katter admits it may take time for Australians to migrate to a new platform but it would have ongoing benefits for democracy and sovereignty.

“This is an opportunity to build something by creating an Australia social media platform, like Facebook, and we should not be held to ransom by a jumped-up, super-rich, American know-all,” he said.

“In Queensland we built and owned the railways, the electricity network and we built the coal industry, the aluminium industry and the tourism industry.

“I’ve been here in federal parliament almost 30 years and as far as I can tell we’ve built nothing. But we have sold off all the things that the great governments before us built.”

Mr Katter is a supporter of making the tech giants pay for news as most of the newspapers in the Kennedy Electorate have closed in the last decade.

“Without a news service, without a local media, the town ceases to exist,” he said.

“Democracy can’t operate without a free flow of information, that’s what Theophanous v Herald and Weekly Times held. Well, this week we’ve learned China is holding a lot of our defence information and secrets, as well as Australian Tax and company files, and that an American company can turn off the tap on Australian news.

“I say the American tech-giants should leave town immediately. We’ll run our own affairs thank you. An Australian-owned social media would restore the power of the Australian media.

“The government-run social media would have to be run by an independent board and have a charter.”

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. “The government-run social media would have to be run by an independent board and have a charter.” Yep, ’cause that’s worked out so well with the ABC. Yet another government department – funded by the long-suffering taxpayers – that will end up just another left-wing shit show. No thanks.

  2. The Govt run social media would be…… the Australian equivalent of the Bloody Broadcasting Cr*pfest that is currently plaguing the UK. ‘Independent’ it is NOT! It’s now a mouthpiece for Gates et al and is browbeating people over the age of 75, threatening fines for non payment of their licence fee. A thoroughly nasty organisation.

  4. GRAND IDEA, BOB, but how long before the Jumped up control freaks in Canberra will demand even worse control over what you are PERMITTED to post. All good ideas ever hatched in Australia have either been sold to other countries or squashed by our LAME BRAINED POLITICIANS. How we manage to recruit such absolute NOBODY”S eludes me?The picture of the current dim wit with a fist full of dollars does explain how the country is run. From one financial disaster to the next.??

  5. Whilst the devil might be in the detail, the idea is sound, I’m quite sure that if 20million participants suddenly jumped ship Face Book would have a mini accident in their corporate pants……possible start of the “rot”.
    Incidentally i have never subscribed to Face Book.

  6. Good ideas but Bob wasn’t in Federal parliament in 1975 so he can be excused for that one but I believe he knows about the Lima affair. Editor
