The farming industry’s beloved Liberal National Party is about to betray them again when Liberal MP Susan Ley will today introduce a private member’s bill into the Lower House that would ban live sheep exports to the Middle East during the northern hemisphere summer months in 2019 and close the sector down entirely in five years.
The last major double-cross for agriculture by the Liberals was in 1999 when PM John Howard introduced the Environment and Biosecurity Conservation Act which was the key for the states to introduce severe vegetation management laws.
How much more government intervention the industry can take is anyone’s guess but soon over-regulation will choke all primary industry to a standstill regardless of the political hue in Canberra.
The last bastion of neo-liberalism, the National Farmers Federation and Meat and Livestock Australia have committed their final Judas act by rolling over whenever pressure is applied by activists.
The traitorous ABC troll responsible for shutting down the live cattle export industry based on false and misleading television footage of Indonesian-bred cattle being mistreated by bribed abattoir workers is Susan Ferguson.
Coincidentally she is the wife of Q&A presenter and ALP sycophant Tony Jones.
Ferguson and the Animals Australia snake Lyn White aided and abetted by the ABC shut down the live cattle export trade overnight in 2011.
It is on the record these misguided, athiest animal rights activists indirectly caused a number of suicides across the agricultural sector.
As a consequence a group of cattle producers is suing the Federal Government for $600 million in compensation after live exports to Indonesia were banned by the Gillard administration.
Now it seems the trendsetters of the left division in the Liberal Party have joined in to support the Liberal backbencher’s anti-export bill.
Shadow Agriculture Minister Joel Fitzgibbon said Labor will lock in its support for what will be known as the Live Sheep Long Haul Export Prohibition Bill.
Livestock producers should be aware these fifth-columnists won’t stop with sheep. Those opposed to live export are rounding up their forces right now to shut down cattle exports. http://www.animalsaustralia.org/
These pagans believe animal rights take precedence over human lives in a similar fashion to the Queensland Labor Party and it seems the Liberals who continue to allow tourists and North Queensland inhabitants be torn apart by monstrous crocodiles.
The sheep meat industry and producers had better take a strong stand instead of simply rolling over as normal. If they leave it to the producer bodies they might as well hand the farm keys to the Chinese now.
What will their starving, urbanised grandchildren say?

The Queensland Police Service, under pressure from the Labor Party is attempting to crucify a 69 year old Cairns resident, Errol Copley, for catching a 3 metre crocodile on a 68lb mackerel fishing line. The croc eventually died.
Wildlife officers from the Environment Department came across the dead croc when looking for ‘illegal’ fish nets in a creek running through Mr Copley’s farm at Deeral, south of Cairns
The officers set up a covert camera which caught Mr Copley disposing of the dead croc on January 18.
He was subsequently fined $500 in the Cairns Magistrates Court.
Mr Copley said he had no intention of catching such a large croc on a set, light line but due to its short length the croc was unable to return to the water after the hook pierced the gut wall and lodged in the reptile’s heart.
The semi-retired cane farmer and commercial fisherman removes mangrove shoots on mud flats near the Cairns Esplanade as a part-time job.
Police want to make an example of Mr Copley by dragging him back to the Magistrates Court arguing his original $500 fine and no conviction would not deter farmers from slaughtering crocs.
Police and the Labor Party’s environment department want the fine increased to $7000.
Herein lies Mr Copley’s defence.
Ever since former Premier Peter Beattie in 2001 unlawfully altered the Queensland Constitution by copyrighting Acts of Parliament to himself including the Public Service Act and removing the Queen, public servants are now responsible only to political party corporations.
Police, employed by the corporation and held to the Public Service Act since then have been unlawfully operating as judge, jury and executioner. Demanding any penalty is unlawful.
A Magistrate sitting in an unconstitutional court can determine the amount of a fine however Mr Copley would be foolish if he paid it.
The corporate State Labor government and its public servants are so far out of touch they have no idea how many crocs have been killed over the past decade by fed-up farmers, fishermen, Aborigines and tourists.
Anecdotal evidence would suggest many hundreds of crocs are killed each year across the north yet their numbers have exploded in places where the dangerous saurians have never been seen before.
Cairns News encourages farmers to rid the rivers of ferocious salt water crocodiles by whatever means possible.
The police allege Mr Copley’s crime was serious because the death occurred “over a prolonged period” and taking the carcass exasperated the offence.
Mr Copley said he removed the dead croc and performed an autopsy so he could get his hook back.
Why would he leave a dead croc in a waterway to pollute the water?
Well done Mr Copley you have performed an honourable public safety service. – Cairns News editorial board.

Queensland farmers want to stick to their guns but the Labor infested public service has refused several hundred handgun licence renewals over the past 18 months causing many cases of animal cruelty.
Farmers need handguns, which have been a part of their tools-of-trade since the first sheep and cattle were offloaded at Botany Bay in 1788.
But the socialist Queensland Labor Party is denying them a licence to carry one even if a farmer has been licenced for 20 or more years without incident or a change in circumstances.
Should a farmer find a cow with a dead calf stuck in its uterus while giving birth and the cow is on its last gasp after the crows have pecked out its eyes and those of the calf, he has no option but to kill the cow. How? He is 20 klms from the house and the nearest rifle because he is on a horse or motorbike.
He could cut the cow’s throat with a pocket knife, that is if he is still allowed to carry one.
The LNP Opposition in 2011 helped outlaw pocket knives by voting with the ALP to ban them. Agforce was dead quiet about this one.
Once a farmer would take his revolver out of its holster and shoot the cow, being the most humane thing to do while appeasing the brain-dead Animals Australia and the RSPCA both of which refuse to provide midwives for Brahman cows.
There are a number of alternatives for hard-pressed farmers such as buying one of many anecdotal ‘hot’ handguns available on the black market or to inadvertently misplace the licenced pistol, which happens on occasion.
Katters Australia Party State leader Robbie Katter says he will step up the pressure on the Labor Party when Parliament resumes to force the ALP Marxists to instruct the Weapons Branch to renew all licences for farmers.Police Minister Comrade Ryan like his predecessor Captain Bill Byrne has a generational hatred of farmers as this new parliament will reveal.
There is palpable union and Labor animosity towards those on the land producing clean and green food for Queenslanders, which unfortunately includes the Labor Party. Agriculture will be in for a torrid time unless the KAP cross-bench can hold them at bay.
The ALP is skating on climate-changing, thin ice even though it has a two seat majority, thanks to an abundance of vote fraud and the ethnic welfare vote. Before the new parliament sits, the Member for Mulgrave and former Treasurer Curtis Pitt is about to be hauled before the powerful Ethics Committee after the LNP alleged he misled the last parliament by pushing through a sweetheart deal for the Tram and Bus Union. Pitt’s fate is up in the air.
Another alternative is for farmers to launch a Federal Court class action to lay bare the unlawful Australia Act 1986 and the alterations to the Queensland Constitution in 2001 by the political miscreant, Peter Beattie without a referendum.
Has anyone noticed since 2001 how Beattie, Bligh, Newman and Palaszczuk refer to “my government’. Does anyone remember giving the ‘government’ to an individual?
Beattie removed the Queen and installed the Premier as the new head of State for the corporate, Socialist Republic of Queensland.The legal mechanism used by the malcontent Beattie can be found in the record of proceedings in the Cairns Magistrates Court: Queensland Police –v- Walter, 2016, QP1700886562 QPS.
If farmers could actually band together for the common good just for once, the Federal Court would have little alternative but to find there is no criminal law in Queensland applying to those citizens outside of the political parties, just the common law which exists across the nation.
