Massive class action needed against state governments for bush fire deaths and property losses

NSW fire bill expected to top $1billion

More than 476 homes across NSW have been lost to wildfire, and at least four landowners burnt to death leaving the gate open for a massive class action against the State of NSW for negligence at common law.

By adhering to the United Nations Agenda 21 environmental policy since 1992, when the state signed on, NSW has experienced massive losses to bush fires.

At least four innocent NSW landowners have been burnt to death by uncontrollable bush fires many of which emanated from national parks or other state controlled land.

NSW landowners should mount a massive class action against the state government for negligence for loss of homes and infrastructure due to wildfires

Their policies under ‘sustainable development’ which are actually designed to hinder any development as a part of the UN depopulation program, has caused untold grief and suffering to nearly 100,000 rural and rural residential dwellers.

Cut down a tree on your rural residential estate and find out how effective these UN laws can be.

The fire bill to date is estimated to be more than $250 million to replace homes, without adding any other infrastructure losses.

The Insurance Council of Australia should begin a class action against the state government, for that matter against all state governments where there have been deaths and property losses due to bush fires. Insurers have estimated a damage bill of over $1billion in NSW.

Furthermore as the states now claim ownership of rainwater after it falls onto your land, they should be sued for flood damages as well.

Typically the NSW Government has its priorities all wrong handing out tens of millions to Muslim schools and other Islamic interests yet they have allowed only $220, 000 to replace rural fencing destroyed by their dangerous policies.

A $220,000 package will go to BlazeAid, the volunteer organisation that helps rural families rebuild buildings and fences.

The NSW Government said $100,000 of that would be used to directly purchase fencing materials and tools, and $120,000 would go towards local councils to help BlazeAid with its work.

A typical cattle fence of four barbed wires and steel posts costs nearly $4000 per klm in material alone plus the cost of clearing old lines and erection.

Sheep and goat fencing is much more expensive. Based on the cost of materials only a handful of farms will get any fences replaced.

Rural fire insurance premiums are expected to go through the roof leaving many landowners unable to insure against bush fires.

Why do New South Welshmen put up with such mediocre, mendacious governments?

Queensland burns while Minister is drying out?

by Robert J Lee

While Queensland burns, the Labor Minister for Fire and Emergency Services, Comrade Craig Crawford is nowhere to be seen. What has happened to the Minister?

The Premier, Comrade Annastacia Palaszczuk has been standing in for the Minister at media conferences issuing dire warnings for landowners to desert their properties, leaving homes to burn in the face of wildfires fuelled by Labor’s decades-long policies of no graders, dozers, firebreaks or fuel reduction burning in national parks and state-owned land.

Minister Craig Crawford’s office has refused to answer a query from Cairns News if he could confirm or deny he is undergoing alcohol rehabilitation somewhere in a facility unknown.

Minister for Fire and Emergency Services

Following the United Nations agreement Agenda 21, which was eagerly signed in 1992 by then Labor Attorney General Rod Welford, the ALP has, like good Fabians, stealthily enacted these draconian UN environmental policies ever since.

Now the pigeons have come home to roost. Fires have destroyed 17 homes and 67 have been damaged. And this tally is only for 2019. Remember the devastating wildfires north of Bundaberg last year?

These homeowners, albeit they chose to live in fire prone areas among the eucalyptus trees, should have a legitimate claim against the state government.

There has been almost no hazard reduction burning in state-owned land for decades-machinery is banned-no firebreaks and bugger the poor neighbours.

The build-up of detritus on the forest floor is up to half a metre in national parks. This happened after cattle grazing was removed and properties locked up. Not so in most forestry controlled old growth and plantation areas. The Forestry department, with what is left of the old brigade, religiously burn their areas of responsibility and stock grazing is allowed in some areas.

Chop down a tree on freehold land and the dreaded tree police will pounce and drag you off to a Queensland court, mostly filled with a Labor judiciary.

How will the stormtrooper tree police know you cut down a tree to save a house? They have been watching your every move by satellite and drones. The DNR know immediately if you have acted in self-defence against wildfire.

The numerous good officers of the overpopulated Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, at media conferences have never mentioned the lack of machinery or firebreaks and excessive forest floor fuel loads might be the predisposing cause of private property losses.

Resplendent in their UN designed black uniforms, with collar badges resembling a Gestapo SS symbol, these urbanites prattle on about ‘climate change’ or global warming starting fires and every other bit of nonsense imaginable.

It is far past the time to drain the Queensland swamp of the burgeoning bureaucracy costing an extra one billion dollars a year to tell voters bullshit.

 

Green/ALP environmental policies killing eastern Australia

If you want to live among the trees then expect the worst

by Robert J Lee in Sydney

A succession of Green/ALP state governments in Queensland, NSW and Victoria has ensured the worst bush fires ever seen since the first settlement in 1788.

Blackfellas would not have allowed such high concentrations of forest detritus or would they have allowed open plains and sparsely timbered country to carry excess bodies of natural grasses.

Smart blackfellas burnt grasslands and forest whenever it would carry a fire.

If they didn’t they would have starved. Quite simple.

But the generational, socialist UN policies driving the major parties have allowed our once pristine rural land to become a tinder box due to lack of fuel reduction burning over decades.

In NSW more than 150 homes have been razed, nearly 900,000 hectares (2,250 million acres) have been devastated by wildfire and three people burnt to death because of Greens/ALP/LNP environmental nonsense.

Landowners under NSW and Queensland policies will end up in jail if they cut down a tree. There is no more problem with this stupidity now – there are no trees left.

NSW Liberal Premier Gladys Berejiklian has declared a state of emergency, describing the crisis as “some of the most devastating bushfires we have ever seen”.

The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) confirmed the extent of the damage to date, ahead of a warning about “catastrophic” conditions facing Greater Sydney and the Greater Hunter areas on Tuesday.

Water bombing catastrophic fires ineffective and a waste of money

And the nonsense still continues in the face of a declared fire emergency; no graders or bulldozers to build fire breaks can be seen at most of these fires. Queensland is no different.

Instead the urban methods of water-bombing with aircraft is next to useless, but puts a lot of money into a few hands.

The NSW fire bill is expected to exceed $1 billion. Insurance companies are hiding under rocks. Great management by state governments!

Then came the UN Agenda 21 (which has morphed into Agenda 30) in 1992 which then Queensland ALP Attorney General, Rod Welford, an avowed socialist among other things, couldn’t wait to sign. On whose authority did he sign such a terrible agreement?

The we have the outgoing Queensland ALP Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk  and Deputy Premier Comrade Jackie Trad promising to sack 11,000 rural fire service volunteers if they don’t apply for a working with children blue card or telephone some ‘official’ from a raging fire ground for permission if they want to back burn.

Today Comrade Premier Palaszczuk issued a state of emergency forbidding any open fires, welding, grinding or acetylene cutting, warning landowners they will commandeer whatever equipment or water needed to fight a fire.

Maybe the desk-jockey morons of the ALP government have discovered they will need machinery to build fire breaks?

Far too little far too late. Get rid of these Trotskyites and replace them with One Nation, Katter and other independents at the next election.

Then form a new state of North Queensland and we can leave the Labor communists and their supporters to wallow in the denuded dustbowl of South East Queensland which no dams and no hazard reduction burning policies has created.

How much CO2 gets emitted to build a wind turbine?

Largely useless eyesores, these towers have a limited lifespan and what happens after they expire? As we have said fo years: “the only wilderness left in Australia is between a greenie’s ears”

-contributed

What is the carbon footprint of a wind turbine with 45 tons of rebar & 481m3 of concrete?

Its carbon footprint is massive – at 241.85 tons of CO2.

Here’s the breakdown of the CO2 numbers.
To create a 1 tonne (1,000 Kg) of pig iron, you start with 1.8 tonne (800 Kg) of iron ore, 900 Kg of coking coal 450 Kg of limestone. The blast furnace consumes 4,500 Kg of air. The temperature at the core of the blast furnace reaches nearly 1,600 degrees C (about 3,000 degrees F).

The pig iron is then transferred to the basic oxygen furnace to make steel.
1,350 Kg of CO2 is emitted per 1,000 Kg pig iron produced.

70% of steel is made from Coal: A 1 MW of wind turbine capacity requires 220 tonnes of coal.

Useless wind generators are subsidised by Governments but nearly every wind generator site is owned by foreign companies. Australians lose again and the ALP/LNP duopoly doesn’t care

A further 1,460 Kg CO2 is emitted per 1,000 Kg of Steel produced so all up 2,810 Kg CO2 is emitted.
45 tons of rebar (steel) are required so that equals 126.45 tons of CO2 are emitted.

To create a 1 tonne (1,000 Kg) of Portland cement, calcium carbonate (60%), silicon (20%), aluminium (10%), iron (10%) and very small amounts of other ingredients are heated in a large kiln to over 1,500 degrees C to convert the raw materials into clinker. The clinker is then interground with other ingredients to produce the final cement product. When cement is mixed with water, sand and gravel forms the rock-like mass know as concrete.

An average of 927 Kg of CO2 is emitted per 1 tonne (1,000 Kg of Portland cement. On average, concrete has 10% cement, with the balance being gravel (41%), sand (25%), water (18%) and air (6%). One cubic metre of concrete weighs approx. 2.4 tonne (2,400 Kg) so approx. 240 Kg of CO2 is emitted for every cubic metre.

481m3 of concrete are required so that equals 115.4 tons of CO2 are emitted.

Not included are the emissions of the mining of the raw materials or the transportation of the fabricated materials to the turbine site. So the emission calculation above would be on the low end.

Extra stats about wind turbines you may not know about:
The average towering wind turbine being installed around beautiful Australia right now is over 80 metres in height (nearly the same height as the pylons on the Sydney Harbour Bridge). The rotor assembly for one turbine – that’s the blades and hub – weighs over 22 tonnes and the nacelle, which contains the generator components, weighs over 52 tonnes
This stands on a concrete base constructed from 45 tonnes of reinforcing rebar which also contains over 481 cubic metres of concrete (that’s over 481,000 litres of concrete – about 20% of the volume of an Olympic swimming pool).

Each turbine blade is made of glass fibre reinforced plastics, (GRP), i.e. glass fibre reinforced polyester or epoxy and on average each turbine blade weighs around 7 tonnes Kg each.
Each turbine has three blades so there’s 21 tonnes Kgs of GRP and each blade can be as long as 50 metres.
A typical wind farm of 20 turbines can extend over 101 hectares of land (1.01 Km2).

Each and every wind turbine has a magnet made of a metal called neodymium. There are .5 tonnes of it in each one that have just gone up around Australia.

The mining and refining of neodymium is dirty and toxic – involving repeated boiling in acid, with radioactive thorium as a waste product – that only one country does it – China.

All this for an intermittent highly unreliable energy source of electrickery

Now, considered the manufacture of the thousands of pylons and tens of thousands of kilometres of transmission wire needed to get the power to the grid. And what about the land space needed to house thousands of these bird chomping death machines?

Renewables like wind turbines will incur far more carbon dioxide emissions in their manufacture and installation than what their operational life will ever save.

Doesn’t the false pollution “cure” of using wind turbines sound worse than the problem? A bit like amputating your leg to “cure” your in-growing toe nail?
Germany’s Renewable Energy Fail: German CO2 Emissions 10 Times Higher than Nuclear- France
Germany has added 30,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels to a coal fired grid and its carbon dioxide gas emissions continue to rise and are magnitudes higher than its nuclear-powered neighbour, France.

New Zealand government trying to close down farming with draconian fresh water and environmental regulations

Letter to the Editor

Agenda 21/30 strikes NZ

Biggest ever farm protests in European history last week hidden by Australian media, and they are running a nation-wide campaign for government transparency?

Your advert and info of new book about Port Arthur which someone has just emailed to me. Google a book titled, CHRISTCHURCH MASSACRE: SATANISM & JOHN PODESTA posted on “Genuine Christianity” website in USA.

Netherlands farmers protest in style leaving placid Australian farmers for dead, in case they upset the inept National Party. Who knows one day Aussie farmers might grow a brain alongside their insecticide-filled cauliflowers.

Also, although a different subject, which may be of interest to you, right now the NZ Government in collaboration with the Netherlands Government is trying to URGENTLY close down all pastoral farming with new draconian ‘Climate Change’ fresh water and environmental regulations (under UN Agenda 21 which they never mention) which will put most farmers out of business.

The Dutch farmers are awake to the seriousness of these UN Green fascist proposals and have been holding the biggest farming protests in Europe’s history the past two weeks, but the news of this has been totally censored by the mainstream media in NZ, hence our farmers still are doing virtually nothing to oppose the proposals. You know the apathetic old story down under, “She’ll be right mate!” Google “YouTube – Netherlands farmers protest 16 October, 2019.” Another massive protest is planned for next week. Appreciate your work. Jack N.Z.

Global warming madness has peaked, now lets hope the extinction mob do become extinct, because the sane people of the world haven’t got problem

by Viv Forbes, science writer

For over 15 years the global warmists have become progressively more outspoken with their scare stories, and less careful with facts and science.

But their latest tactics of promoting Extinction Hellions and exploiting a teenage Swedish Doomsayer represent alarmist over-reach.

Ordinary people are becoming suspicious: “If their science is sound, why do they resort to media scare stories, traffic disruption, street rebellions, school truants, religious zealots and academic purging?”

Darling of Soros and the socialist left, Greta Thunberg suffers borderline autism and has known mental issues. A perfect patsy for the global warmists but her veneer has worn through.

We are close to the peak of this global warming madness. Their models and forecasts have failed and consumers suffer soaring electricity cost and blackouts while tenured academics produce Play-School plans for 100% “Green” power.

Climate sense is finally starting to ooze through the cracks in the stone wall built to keep Skeptics out of the flimsy marquee that shelters the warming nobility.

  It is downhill from here for the alarmists and bad news for their academic mercenaries, Hollywood backers, Rebellion puppets, business vested interests and alarmist propaganda machines like Australia’s ABC, UK’s BBC and Guardian, Canada’s CBC and CNN in USA.

They are losing their credibility and their thinking audiences just when they will need them for backpedalling, explanations and apologies

National Farmers Federation, which doesn’t represent family farmers, wants them to make way for China

National Farmers Federation solution is to get rid of the farmers

Farming is an essential service

Barnaby Joyce joins in the chorus to throw farmers off the land

KAP Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter has today slammed the National Farmers Federation (NFF) after they appeared on national television and announced they were lobbying the government to provide financial incentives to drought-affected farmers to leave their land; a campaign which is being echoed by the National Party.

A livid Mr Katter said, “Your solution is to get rid of the farmers. It is in the back of the mind of every intelligent Australian ‘why do you want these people out?’ So your big corporate masters, Chinese investors, prominent amongst them can buy them out and we can have corporate farmers.  The city suits and foreign nations will be our farmers and we peasants will be out there working for nothing in little towns that are vanishing. That is the solution by National Farmers Federation.”

The NFF, a farming lobby group, proposed six measures to the Government last week, one of which was an incentive payment to leave the land. Other measures in the proposal were rate relief to help pay local government charges, payments that are the equivalent to Newstart allowance, $2,000 top-up of the Assistance for Isolated Children allowance, two-year interest free government loans and a plan to work with state and territory governments to eradicate feral pigs.

Senator Barnaby Joyce

Former Nationals Leader Barnaby Joyce has joined into the NFF chorus to get rid of family farmers saying if they can’t make a profit they should get out. Liberal policies for decades have ensured farming is the most over-regulated industry in the nation and almost impossible to show a satisfactory return. There are no Nationals left, just Liberals wearing Akubras. Lost is recognition by political parties that Australia will starve if we lose any more family farms. With less than 120,000 remaining farms, we have reached the point of no return. The Liberals and ALP will allow China to take over economically distressed farms.

While the NFF has been critical of the ad-hoc response to drought by the Government, Mr Katter believes that exit packages are not the answer.

“The KAP, the political party I belong to, says Reconstruction Bank. It’s just so simple that you’ve got to be curious why they won’t do it.

“The Reconstruction Bank, through the Government, can borrow at, probably, a bit below 2% so it can lend at 1.9%. Where aa farmer now owes an average $1 million, he has to find $54,000 a year to pay to the bank. Under the Reconstruction Bank he’ll now be paying $16,000 to the bank.

“The Reconstruction Bank buys bad ‘in danger’ debts at a discount. The farmer will then owe the Reconstruction Bank not the full $1 million he owed the bank but only $850,000 giving him leeway to buy fodder.”

Mr Katter also took aim at the Government’s sorry attempts at financial assistance for primary producers, “The Federal Government claiming they have done something with the farm and financial assistance grants, that one is one huge whopper. Hungry Jacks would love that one, that’s the biggest whopper of all.

“It was the Rural Action Council of Far North Qld, secured at Wayne Swan and Kevin Rudd’s Drought Summit that gave us that concession. The tragedy is when Rural Action was screaming against former Deputy Prime Minister, John Anderson’s, dreadful comment that “we don’t need 240,000 farmers in Australia we only need 120,000”, well the National Party has achieved its objective, we now have less than 120,000 farmers and of those farmers around one in 10 have been on welfare payments, the Family Assistance Grants, given to us, not by our traditional party, the National Party, but by our traditional enemies the ALP.”

“If the KAP gets a commanding position in the Parliament, as Knuth, Katter and Dametto have said again and again, they will immediately reintroduce the reconstruction bank which was successfully run for over 100 years in Queensland.

“We have already lost half of our farmers in the last 20 years. Clearly it is the intention of the NFF, and their political wing, the National Party, to get rid of another half. The farmers are doing it tough? Their solution: get rid of the farmers.”

Week long power outage in California a part of UN Agenda 21/30

Australia signatory to Agenda 21 since 1992

No power for 2 million California residents

In NSW, 23,500 customers had power cut off last year, unable to pay bills

by Alex Bruce

It’s funny how so many topics once deemed to be “Tinfoil Hat conspiracy theories” keep getting proven to be worthy of serious attention. Agenda 21, the United Nations’ 1992 plan for Sustainable Development is an example.

Rosa Koire has been doing an excellent job of raising awareness about Agenda 21 for many years. She describes how it is being rolled-out – never by name. This is carefully avoided. Hence, we’re propagandized about Climate Change and the Green New Deal. She says Agenda 21 programs can be identified by their so-called “communitarian” ethos that is imposed from without by NGOs, circumventing the will of communities and the individuals within.

Useless and epensive wind turbines litter the US in the tens of thousands. Australia is next

Agenda 21 has been getting pushed hard lately in the agitprop of Greta Thunberg and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. Among its unrealistic goals, the Green New Deal aims to restructure the entire global energy economy within 10 years by completely “transitioning” the US out of fossil fuels and nuclear energy and into renewables, like wind and solar power.

What none of its proponents will admit is that this plan requires genocide. As shown by the collapse of Rome and demonstrated repeatedly by successive societies, the halving of energy consumption leads directly to the collapse of human populations.

As a Bay Area forensic commercial real estate appraiser and expert witness, Rosa Koire observed how property owners in Northern California have been barred from using their own properties, thus making these cheap when the Government wants to acquire them for Eminent Domain.

While investigating this, Koire ran into Agenda 21 – or as she calls it, “The biggest public relations scam in the history of the world,” and how this global plan aims to break down economies and to depopulate areas considered to be rural or suburban, concentrating populations into larger cities.

“This is the plan. It’s the loss of our industry, our agriculture, our food independence. Ultimately, it’s the loss of our sovereignty, as a free nation…It’s social engineering…it’s the acceptance of what I call the ‘new poverty’.”

Over two million people in California were left without power this week and several hundred thousand remain without power during a preventive blackout by PG&E lasting several days. The energy company’s promise to make a massive outage like this the new normal will likely drive many people away from the rural areas and thus fulfill the plan of Agenda 21.

Greenie pests must go to save Australia

Greenie Pests  

by Viv Forbes

The Greenie pests are having a dream run.

First Greenie Climatists destroyed reliable coal-fired power stations, trying to replace them with intermittent wind-solar toys and a giant $90M battery.

Then a Greenie PM donated $444M to a Greenie group to discourage industry near the Great Barrier Reef.

Di Natale and Hansen Young. These Marxist, Malthusian Greenies have to go. Along with their cohorts the Labor Party, they have all but killed most Australian industry. Make sure you place them last on any ballot paper.

Then drought helped Greenie water-wasters to kill rural industries from Townsville to Broken Hill. Then floods in the wild rivers of the north devastated much of what was left. Decades of Greenie opposition to new dams made both drought and flood disasters worse.

Then Greenie mismanagement of parks, forests and grasslands helped fuel even more destructive bush fires.

And recently a Judge used Greenie propaganda to kill a new coal mine in NSW, and a Greenie academic used a finchy story to add to the ten year delay to the Adani Coal Mine.

Now the lights are going out and jobs are disappearing.

The looming elections provide an opportunity to get rid of this plague of Greenie pests.

Behind the Green Mask

Australia is a signatory to Agenda 21. We were signed up by the Federal Government in 1992. As with America, Local Government Authorities have implemented ‘model statutes’ directly from this massive anti-development UN document. Don’t miss this great video of author Rosa Koire (link at bottom of page) exposing the green agenda.

Agenda 21 document:

 https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/content/documents/Agenda21.pdf

by Alex Bruce

It’s funny how so many topics once deemed to be “Tinfoil Hat conspiracy theories” keep getting proven to be fact. Concern about Agenda 21, aka the United Nations’ plan for Sustainable Development(depopulation) is an example.

Agenda 21 was placed front and center before Americans last week in the form of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal. Among its unrealistic goals, the Green New Deal aims to restructure the entire global energy economy within 10 years by completely “transitioning” the US out of fossil fuels and nuclear energy and into renewables, like wind and solar power.

Australia should get out of the United Nations

What few will admit is that this plan implies genocide. As evidenced by the collapse of Rome and demonstrated repeatedly by successive societies, the halving of energy consumption leads directly to the collapse of human populations.

As a Bay Area forensic commercial real estate appraiser and expert witness, Rosa Koire observed how property owners in Northern California have been barred from using their own properties, making these cheap when the Government wants to acquire them for Eminent Domain.

While investigating this, Koire ran into Agenda 21 – or as she calls it, “The biggest public relations scam in the history of the world,” and how this global plan aims to break down economies and to depopulate areas considered to be rural or suburban, concentrating populations into larger cities.

“This is the plan. It’s the loss of our industry, our agriculture, our food independence. Ultimately, it’s the loss of our sovereignty, as a free nation…It’s social engineering…it’s the acceptance of what I call the ‘new poverty’.”

She covers the anti-human Senate Bill 1867, which brands the common people as “enemy combatants” in the eyes of the Government and she describes how Agenda 21 is being rolled-out – never by name – this is carefully avoided. Hence, the Green New Deal. Agenda 21 programs can be identified by their “communitarian” ethos and we need only look to the economic disaster now facing Germany to see what such anti-growth green economic policies have wrought.

As Koire points out, Agenda 21 is a global initiative being carried out locally. But there is hope on the horizon, in that the Yellow Vest protests have now begun to emerge in Germany, while they continue to rage in France. The Gilets Jaunes are a direct response to the implementation of such anti-human Agenda 21 policies.

Clap hands for yet another LNP/ALP free trade deal this time destroying $1.75B sugar

Dairy, citrus, potato, pineapple, prawn, fishing industries, motor vehicles, pulp, paper, fibre, fuel, plastics and more finished, now sugar

HINCHINBROOK MP Nick Dametto has urged the Federal Government to stand up for Australian cane farmers after India’s decision to dump millions of tonnes of subsidised sugar on the world market.

The Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) MP, whose electorate is home to a sugar industry worth more than $300 million a year, said India’s actions were a kick in the guts for local cane farmers.

“This is a disgraceful decision by India at a time when our producers are already dealing with a poor world sugar price below the cost of production,” he said.

“It is not a level playing field when India’s sugar industry is getting the equivalent of an $850 million government assistance package, including help to export their product,” he said.

Mr Dametto’s call for action was backed up by KAP leader and Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter who was also furious at the situation.

The Australian sugar industry in about to collapse. It employs 16,000 and total revenue is $1.75billion. Of a national 4100 farms many growers will have to exit the industry. The free trade policies of the ALP/LNP duopoly have sounded the death knell for yet another primary industry.

“Our country will not survive continuing to be what economist Trevor Sykes called the “only virgin in the brothel,” Mr Katter said.

“Most of my last speeches in Parliament have been what I’ve hoped are fierce attacks upon the hypocrisy of free trade; upon our industry representative organisations particularly in agriculture.

All we’ve got out of these bodies in Canberra is a clapping of hands for every free trade deal.

“What country on earth free trades?”

Mr Katter also cast doubt on the willingness of industrial countries like China or India to be transparent when it came to playing by the rules on free trade.

“Does anyone seriously believe that China or India free trade?” he said.

“The damage done by deregulation has been colossal. The damage was done by national Liberal governments. The National Competition Policy was forced upon the states by the Federal Government. I know this because I was then in that Federal Government and this was one of the major reasons I left.

“Before deregulation, the sugar producer was receiving $473 a tonne and the price to the consumer was $1040 a tonne (104c per/kg). A mark-up of around 100 per cent.

The “current price” to the producer is $317 per tonne and the price on the shelf is $1750 per tonne ($1.75 per/kg). That’s nearly a 600 per cent mark up.

“The supermarket chains have said “thank you, we love you Mr Government. You have enabled us now to charge the consumers a 600 per cent mark-up instead of a 100 percent mark-up”.

“American farmers get paid for sugar around $600 a tonne, French farmers’ $700 tonne, Thailand farmers around $450 a tonne, and Australian farmers, $317 a tonne. We have the most poorly paid sugar farmers in the world and that is the outcome of government free-market policies.

Mr Katter said free trade had ravaged multiple agricultural industries in Australia, pointing to the US Free Trade Agreement as an example.

“The American free trade deal was about dairy, beef and sugar. The value to dairying was quoted as one free ice-cream a week for each farmer. The cattle industry has always had a fairly good deal on access and the sugar industry was wiped like a dirty rag. It got nothing.

“Mark Vaile, the then National Party Minister for Trade, said before a negotiations started, “There would be no deal unless sugar was included”. To call anyone in the National Party a liar is not really correct, they are actually jokes. They are not the beer in the bottle; they’re the label that tells you how good the beer is.

“When Tony Abbott rose to his feet to congratulate Andrew Robb on securing the free trade deal with China, all the Liberals and their flunkies – the Nationals – stood up and gave a standing ovation. I said to the MP next door to me, “Abbott just wrote his own death warrant”.

“A couple of months later, he was gone.

“What they don’t tell you on beef, is yes, you can get beef into the US free of tariffs (around two per cent), but the USA beef subsidy is around 30 per cent. Under the Free Trade Agreement, it stays.

“The subsidy in India on ‘fertiliser alone’ was, when I last looked, $2.3 billion a year. The Indians believe in cheap food for their people, and quite rightly so. The ALP and LNP believe in free trade – yeah, for the supermarket giants.

“But clearly not in cheap food for the people.”
