Victorian government’s response to the Andrews dilemma

by ‘Nola’ a Victoria Government media adviser

What an absolute load of rubbish. Whilst you are referring to Dan Andrews and China, why not tell the entire story – why are you trying to undermine a Labor Premier? That entire article about DA and Fox is so obviously lies, but here do some more on the China aspect.

CHINA

Who signed the Australia China Free Trade Agreement? Who leased the Darwin Port? In 2015, the Liberals agreed to lease the Port of Darwin to Chinese company, Landbridge, which says it was part of Belt & Road. It was the wrong call. During this time, Frydenberg was Minister for Northern Australia, Morrison was Treasurer and Andrew Robb was part of photo op and then took a job with China. “The Victorian agreements certainly pale in importance compared with the deal the Northern Territory government did a few years ago to lease the Port of Darwin to a Chinese company. “


Premier Dan Andrews (below) signs up to the Belt and Road thus creating a rogue China state. Nola says the Liberals and other Labor States are bigger China sycophants than Dan. We couldn’t agree more. Editor

Australia’s biggest and oldest farm sold to China, and sale approved by none other than Scotty from Marketing.

The federal government also signed this in 2017. The Victorian document was negotiated by the previous Liberal government and Labor signed it only a couple of weeks after taking office.

In 2018 Simon Birmingham declared “we welcome the fact that Victoria has shown their enthusiasm and initiative. The Australian Government welcomes the fact that through the Belt and Road Initiative China invest more across our region.”

Back in 2019 Scott Morrison had this to say about the Belt and Road Initiative, “We would be mugs to not accept the Belt and Road Initiative with China – mugs!”
And Abbott welcomed PowerChina’s investment into The Australian market after it signed a MOU with Victoria. He said, “ They are looking to invest in infrastructure in Victoria and obviously the East West Link offers them a very big opportunity in the months and years ahead.”

Denis Napthine was also pleased that PowerChina was looking at bidding on stage two of the East West Road Project, the Melbourne Metro rail tunnel and the Port of Hasting.

Of course, the Turnbull Government refused to release the agreement it had signed with China that detailed the terms of the Belt and Road Infrastructure Initiative saying China did not want the details of the agreement released to the public.
This occurred after Federal Government Trade Minister Steve Ciobo signed the memorandum of understanding, agreeing to cooperate with China building Bridges, Roads and dams in Australia.

Then a hawkish Scott Morrison in 2021, tears up two Belt and Road Initiative agreements between Victoria and China.
Why? Because Victoria has a Labor government. Morrison is all about politics, nothing else.

Editor: Cairns News has already published much of Liberal and Labor’s China escapades mentioned above.

Electric buses

Letter to the Editor

Electric Busses made in China

Brisbane has bought electric buses from China that are possibly and most likely loaded with Spyware and potentially miniaturized military explosive devices to disable them when needed.  Aluminum/magnesium and other alloys can be triggered to flash burn, we learnt that 60 years ago; modern science can explode specific materials by simple devices.

Four of these buses go on trial on June 14.


Very sophisticated Spyware appears to have been in many other devices manufactured there, phones, photocopiers, coffee machines etc, for over twenty years. Strange devices appeared in early photocopiers etc. the repair man did not understand, they do now. Now it appears phones are taking photographs and recordings that are automated and sending them.

Many programs have other activities, it appears if using Ticktock of Huawei your data can be manipulated, forwarded, copied, or deleted — wonder why UK, France, US and Australia object to Huawei.  

We should have brought Australian made electric buses; we refuse to travel on them and so should you.

Readers should look up the speech to Officers and Generals given 15 years ago by General Chi Haotian Vice-Chairman of China’s Military Commission and Défense Minister 1993 – 2003.

Sincerely

G J May

Katter and Wilkie demand Defence Minister remove China from access to military records and data

Direct national security threat from China suggesting Australia should be bombed

Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter has seconded a motion that called for the Federal Government to immediately tear up the contract that allows a Chinese corporation to store Australia’s secure defence data, citing that the extension of this contract threatens Australia’s national security.[1]

Supporting crossbench colleague and Member for Clarke, Andrew Wilkie, in moving the motion, Mr Katter said it was unbelievable that the Government would allow any foreign corporation to have access to and control over sensitive defence data, let alone a Chinese company called Global Switch.  

https://www.globalswitch.com.au/

Mr Katter said he was disappointed that major parties voted against a motion that attempted to claw back Australia’s sovereignty.

“My honourable colleague, Mr Wilkie, who is moving this motion said you couldn’t make this up, you seriously couldn’t make this up,” Mr Katter said during his speech to parliament.

“Australia’s most strategic security asset is that information system and it’s in the hands of people that put on social media, over there in China, a doctored picture of an Australian soldier cutting the throats of babies.

Photo-shopped image from China showing an Australian soldier cutting a baby’s throat. It is just as repugnant as the Chinese custom of eating the brains of a live monkey

Mr Katter said that he was familiar with the power of inertia in the public service, after a decade in the Queensland Government as a Minister and pleaded with the Minister for Defence and the Assistant Minister for Defence to understand and act immediately.

“I have never seen a Government more out of step with the people. They’ve let every asset be taken over by foreigners and if they don’t stop this contract immediately, they can expect the rage and fire of 25 million Australians bearing down upon them.”

Assistant Defence Minister, Andrew Hastie responded to the motion, saying he didn’t take Department official’s word as gospel.

“My eagle eye will be on this issue going forward and I will be seeking additional updates as I did last week because my concern (about Global Switch) is no different than yours,” Mr Hastie said.

“I know the Minister for Defence is also keenly aware of this issue and we will both be monitoring this process carefully to ensure it happens as quickly as possible.

“Had I been a decision maker many years ago this would never have happened, but I’m here now and we’re working through this problem.”

China is real time spying on every aspect of Australian life with CCTV – so is ASIO

by Gil May

We need a bit more intelligent in-depth thinking than this video. The bill referred to in this clip is the result of urgent national security requirements — think carefully about the words hereunder.

THIS IS A DRACONIAN BILL, BUT NECESSARY TO PROTECT AUSTRALIA.

You have already been warned of potential terrorist attacks, take them very seriously.

You should know China has fully mapped Australia for imminent invasion, they know more about our country than you do.  

HIKVISION Home & Business security systems installed in many areas are owned by the CCP, all films are sent back to China. Sold by Australia Post.  Every Chinese business is ex-official of the CCP or they are not permitted to operate.

Every high rise building owned by Chinese is a security beacon and control directional unit.

Australia Post is unwittingly marketing spyware on behalf of China
All footage is sent to China from these innocent surveillance cameras

The new Brisbane electric buses made in China are all likely loaded with spyware that could possibly also detonate simple looking structural materials — they could have been made here in Australia.

The list is endless.

Understand there have been some very serious foiled terrorist attacks, some best kept from the public to prevent copy-cat acts and kept out of the press..  

When the head of National Security warns the people, and very conservative and protective men of impeccable credentials like Peter Dutton take the action they have with this legislation — there is a very valid reason and urgent need.

We are under constant computer attack hacking into business and government computers, many attempts made to get into defence, national security areas and airports to crash planes; our system is being tested by criminal elements some supported by Governments, we are very vulnerable because we have never had tough laws given to government before as we have not needed them.  Laws like these have been in overseas governments for decades, many since the last war.

Our lax laws are being used against us, the illegal boat people are just a tiny piece that you might understand easier than the complex algorithms and technical silent and invisible attack weapons unseen by the public — that are seriously visible to the defence industry.

At Christmas last year we finally gave the Federal Government authority over state governments on matters of national security – they had never had that authority before, states could enter into dangerous liaison agreements that could not be stopped.  Dictator Dan had his Belt & Roads deal with China quickly stopped, others are underway, including a Defence Force investigation into the Darwin Port being controlled by Chinese thanks to the NT Govt.

We are now in a very different world to that of ten years ago, We either have hard laws or we do not survive as we know Australia today. If China wants to attack us there is little we can do without help from other countries UK & US.  Sometimes measures for our own good are hard to take, and impossible for the ignorant whose attitude encourages attacks on our country.   

Is obnoxious Senator Penny Wong a double agent for China?

Shadow Foreign Affairs Minister Penny Wong has accused the federal government of endangering Australia’s relationship with China by using alarmist rhetoric for domestic political gain. 

In an address to a Canberra book launch, Senator Wong said Prime Minister Scott Morrison had been indulging in political opportunism in foreign affairs.



Labor senator, Penny Wong, and her wife, Sophie Allouache, welcomed their first child on December 11. Their daughter is named Alexandra, which is Sophie’s middle name.

“My concern is that not only does he not fully comprehend Australia’s interests in relation to China, he doesn’t even seek to,” she said.

“It’s always about the domestic political advantage — either in the internal fights within the Liberal Party in pandering to the far right, or in seeking to pursue some partisan advantage over the Labor Party.”

Senator Wong also took aim at Home Affairs secretary Mike Pezzullo over his comments that free nations are once again hearing “the beating drums” of war.

“Today, as free nations again hear the beating drums and watch worryingly the militarisation of issues that we had, until recent years, thought unlikely to be catalysts for war, let us continue to search unceasingly for the chance for peace while bracing again, yet again, for the curse of war,” Mr Pezzullo told staff in an Anzac Day message last month. 

He also said Australia should strive to reduce the likelihood of war “but not at the cost of our precious liberty”.

Mr Pezzullo’s comments came days after Defence Minister Peter Dutton said conflict over Taiwan should not be discounted as tensions between the US and China rise in the Pacific.

Senator Wong called that rhetoric unhelpful, and said inflating the threat of war would serve China’s purposes. 

“Two of the people most responsible for keeping Australians safe are instead talking tough for political purposes, and in doing so they are playing directly into the CPC’s narrative and providing Beijing with the leverage that comes with a sense of inevitability about crisis, conflict and war,” she said.

“The first job of national leaders is the safety of their citizens. Our leaders do not make us safe by beating the drums of war with China.

“Foreign policy should not be the prosecution of domestic politics by other means because, as I’ve said, in diplomacy words matter.”

Australia’s relationship with China has deteriorated sharply over the past year, as the country hit local exports with a wide range of trade barriers after Australia called for an independent investigation into the origins of COVID-19.

The federal government also tore up Victoria’s controversial Belt and Road Initiative agreement with China last month, prompting China to freeze activities under its Strategic Economic Dialogue with Australia. 

Fiery independent MHR, Bob Katter accuses Wong of stoking the China fire

“A Chinese Communist Party diplomat had a picture of an Australian solider slitting the throat of a child posted on twitter,” Mr Katter said

“They had on Chinese state media, which is government controlled, Australia should be bombed.

“Penny, is it really us stoking the fires?

“What has Morrison said?

“What has Dutton said?

“You might accuse me of stoking the fires. Well that’s because in the last major war they were prepared to give North Queensland to the enemy, Japan.

“Was it China or Australia who imposed trade bans on the other country?

“Drew Pavlou and his mates were having a peaceful protest at the University of Qld for Hong Kongers and Uighurs. Did they stoke the fire?

“Or was it the Chinese thugs who attacked them on campus during their peaceful demonstration.

“Penny Wong’s statements are outrageous.

“If things unfold as people are predicting they will unfold, then her comments will be remembered, just as those people who were selling iron ore to Japan before the 2nd World War.”

China to bomb Australia if we support the Yanks

A leading voice in Communist China has advised Beijing to bomb Australia and bring “disaster” should Canberra support US military action.

The editor of a Chinese newspaper considered to be a mouthpiece of the Communist dictatorship has said Beijing should consider “long range strikes” directed at Australia.

Editor-in-chief of the stridently pro-Communist Global Times newspaper, Hu Xijin, made the extraordinary comments in an editorial advising Beijing how it should react should Australia join the US in protecting democratic Taiwan from invasion.

“Australia must know what disasters it would cause to their country,” he said in the tub-thumping piece published late on Friday.

Latest Dongfeng 41 rocketry during May Day celebrations in Bejing could reach Australia

Beijing has long insisted Taiwan must unite with the People’s Republic, either by choice or force. It has become a rallying cry for Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

That’s despite Taiwan never having been under communist rule. The island was where the then-Chinese government fled to in 1949 when the Communists took control on the mainland.

It is now a democratic nation with many inhabitants seeing themselves as Taiwanese rather than Chinese.

The US is not obligated to defend Taiwan, although its policy of “strategic ambiguity” over Taiwan means it reserves the right to do so. If the US did intervene, it’s highly likely Australia would be called on to help in some way.

In recent months, China has ratcheted up the tension and its air force has made repeated forays into Taiwan’s air defence zone.

On Anzac Day Canberra’s chief national security adviser Mike Pezzullo told staff that the “drums of war” were getting louder. That was widely interpreted as referring to China.

‘Long range strikes’ on Australia

Writing in the Global Times, Mr Hu said that Australian “hawks” were “hyping or hinting” that Australia would help the US should a military conflict occur in the Taiwan Straits.

“I suggest China make a plan to impose retaliatory punishment against Australia once it militarily interferes in the cross-Straits situation,” he said.

“The plan should include long-range strikes on the military facilities and relevant key facilities on Australian soil if it really sends its troops to China’s offshore areas and combats against the People’s Liberation Army.”

Any assistance to the US in Taiwan would be “irresponsible,” he added.

“China loves peace and will not take the initiative to pick a fight with faraway Australia, but Australian hawks must be clear-minded.

“If they are bold enough to co-ordinate with the US to militarily interfere in the Taiwan question and send troops to the Taiwan Straits to wage war with the PLA, they must know what disasters they would cause to their country.”

The Global Times’ editorials are not necessarily echoed by the Communist leadership but they would be unlikely to be published without Beijing’s blessing.

RELATED: War over Taiwan a ‘gamble’ for China – this is what it really wants

Where would Beijing target in Australia?

Writing in The Australian on Saturday, the paper’s foreign affairs editor Greg Sheridan nominated a few locations China might want to target on Australian soil.

These included the listening station run with the US at Pine Gap, near Alice Springs, which would be key in communicating during any Taiwan skirmish.

JIndalee over-the-horizon radar base near Longreach in Central Western Queensland could be a target for a
Chinese ICBM

He also nominated Jindalee Operational Radar Network south of Longreach in Queensland, a signals facility in Geraldton, Western Australia, and Stirling naval base south of Perth where Australia’s submarines are based.

Most of China’s missiles are only capable of reaching parts of East Asia. But a number of its Dongfeng range of rockets are thought to have a far longer range and theoretically could reach much of Australia.

Senator Lambie and Bob Katter tell Scomo to tear up China’s Darwin Port lease

Lambie and Katter force LNP to hold Royal Commission into war veteran suicide

Bob Katter says Joe Biden the greatest danger to world peace he has seen in his lifetime

These two representatives, possessing tremendous intestinal fortitude are just that. They listen to the people. The LNP/ALP free-trading and de-regulating duopoly represent only foreign interests and the big end of town. Katter and Lambie represent the people.

It is so important for voters to support these two aussies who have the good of the people and country at heart. The political definition of stupidity is to keep voting for the same people but expect a different result. If voters cannot see that the corporate duopoly looks after only corporate vested interests then these people should not be voting.

China accused of harvesting the organs of 25,000 people every year


Letter to the Editor

………..An Epoch Times article about organ harvesting is actual Falun Gong propaganda, following the idiotic and decades old claim that the Chinese government kidnaps Falun Gong and harvests their organs. The Jews allege that China “appears to be running out of young and healthy Falun Gong, and, like ‘a dog returning to its vomit,’ the party’s killing machine has returned to Xinjiang,” referring to the Moslem region where China has been putting some Moslems in camps to try to manage the terrorism problem.
The Jews claim that these camps are secretly organ harvesting camps.
Falun Gong is a cult set up by the CIA, and they’ve been talking about organ harvesting since the 1990s. This was always intended to be something that they could use in the case of needing a war with China. The Epoch Times, a Falun Gong newspaper, is the only source for these claims. Normal newspapers did not print these claims, because there is no evidence other than “eyewitness testimony” from agents of this cult, and the claims themselves are idiotic………….

AUSTRALIA THE STUPID COUNTRY

by Gil May

To those who ignore the requirements of future generations — those who only think of themselves with no planning for the requirements of future generations:

You voted for politicians to treat your grandchildren’s future with contemptuous disinterest, to sell it out from under them.

Have you given any consideration of future generations survival requirements or are you too busy and self-centered to care?

AUSTRALIA THE WORLD’S QUARRY, what happens when there is none left?

What do your grandchildren do for “their” nations income and industry?

When all the oil, gas, copper, gold, precious metals needed in modern technology, and other minerals have been sold to China and others, how do your descendants survive?

How do they power their homes and industry?

How do they process and cook their food, as you did or as caveman did?

Did anyone hear PM Scott Morrison object when the Foreign Investment Review Board allowed a CCP company in March to buy the lease of Cockatoo Island just off the West Australian coastline adjacent to a sensitive military training area used by the SAS?

It requires energy to think, intelligence to formulate thoughts, and wisdom to put them into practice — do you have any of these requirements?

Or do you default to other’s thinking and instructions, instead of using your own?

You are the beginning of your children’s and their children’s future,

Will you make it a success for them?

Or by your own inaction let others destroy it?

You have a responsibility to those who walked before you to make your life of value, their sacrifices in war and backbreaking toil of their life’s work for a better world for you, to make your life of value.

What are you doing to continue their work for your children and grandchildren?

When did you take a little of your time to tell your local MP and Senator, what you want them to do for your children’s future?

Too much trouble for you to take time away from your sport, pub, and other interests?

By your inaction you default your thinking and direction to those of lesser intelligence who have no concern nor interest in your children’s future — only their own.

Are you one of those who stand tall and proud on ANZAC DAY — then wilt with disinterest and lack of concern for your children’s future the next day?

Do you want a kook like Greens Senator Hanson Young deciding on the future of Australia?

It took years of hard work to produce the great Australia we know today, it took less than a decade for ALP and Green politicians to allow mentally deranged religious terrorists into your community to kill you — then take billions of you taxes to protect you from them — taxes that should have been spent on education and health for your family.

Our pioneers, community, parents and defences personnel set a standard for Australia to live by — in a decade you have allowed these standards to be destroyed by social engineers, word warpers, gender benders, the offence industry, and the those unable to analyse common sense into reality.

It’s never too late – ‘IF’ you care for your children and Australia’s future.

Take a deep breath, stand on your feet and let that bit of ‘snake’ in you rise to the surface, go and take your local politician head-on — as you did opponents on the football field years ago — tell them and their pathetically complaint staff that put you correspondence to them in the rubbish bin — that you have had a gutful, that you demand a better standard, no more twisted words and sexual distortions, we are male or female — what you do with it does not change your sex.

Labor Leader and Greens sympathiser Anthony Albanese, another China sycophant infesting our parliament, will allow China to settle vast areas of Northern Australia, more than they already own now. The ALP suggested China should take up this land in a parliamentary paper several years ago

Go back to a high standard of decency in the community teaching children basic subjects, English, Maths, Science — where factual history is taught and twisted, sanitised personal opinions in lieu of fact are banned — PROVE IT OR REMOVE IT, from teaching.

Everyone — it is up to us what direction our children and society goes forward into the future with. We must demand an improved standard from teachers, bureaucracy, politicians — or dissolve into a quagmire of confused nothing the Chinese are watching happen — as they let us destroy ourselves, making it easier for their planned invasion — it’s not far away.

They have control of land near every infrastructure, military establishment, ports, airports, parliaments, water supplies, roads, bridges, and power supplies — with permission of stupid state governments and prior federal governments — at least this federal government is taking action.

It has been revealed Chinese intention is to kill all defence personnel, politicians, community leaders, *non-productive people, and take ownership of your home with a bullet induced vacancy — as done in Tibet.  *(Protestors note)

We provide them with all their construction and development material for their massive trillion-dollar military equipment, that will be attacking us in the future — have we gone mad?

Their biological weapons are well established, as detailed in ‘China Speaks’ by General Chi Haotain — Covid-19 was a test run to observe how it would cripple the West’s economy and military.

It provided the camouflage under the guise of Covid vaccination, to inoculation their population against the next one that will destroy Australia, the West and most of the world.

Then as detailed in ‘China Speaks’, Only countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization”,  “Only by using special means to ‘clean up’ America will we be able to lead the Chinese people there. Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves”.   “It is indeed brutal to kill one or two hundred million Americans (and Australians). But that is the only path that will secure a Chinese century, a century in which the CCP leads the world”.

Israel’s Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies – advises more than 40 Chinese facilities are involved in bio-weapon production. It is reported they have a successful vaccine for Ebola Virus, highly infectious and usually fatal , and many other gain-of-function chimeric viruses (Lab created viruses with fatal components of others genetically fused).

You either stop them now or they will end your children’s future — like they did to the slaughtered Tibetans and those in Tiananmen Square on 4 June1989, where they shot, killed and injured an estimated 10,000 students, then ran over the dead and dying with tanks pulping their bodies, then scraped their bodies into heaps and burnt them — because they dared to have a different opinion to the government — the same government our politicians and industry suck-up to for dollars.

In a secret cable to Britain (BBC), British ambassador to China, Sir Alan Donald reported:

“….. at least 10,000 people were killed”, “Students linked arms but were mowed down including soldiers. Armoured Personnel Carriers then ran over bodies time and time again to make ‘pie’ and remains collected by bulldozer. Remains incinerated and then hosed down drains”. “Four wounded girl students begged for their lives but were bayoneted.”

The Glugs of Gosh

China and Free Trade making waves in 1917

THE GLUGS OF GOSH
by
C J DENNIS
With Illustrations by Hal Gye
FIRST PUBLISHED 1917

(Sir Stodge was ‘free trade’ advocate aka Sir George Reid who had a suburb in Canberra named after him.)

“…………But a Glug stood up with a cast in his eye,
And he said, “Far too many baubles we buy;
With all the Gosh factories closing their doors,
And importers’ warehouses lining our shores.”
But the Glugs cried, “Down with such meddlesome fools!
What did our grandpas lay down in their rules?”

 

And the Knight, Sir Stodge, he opened his Book:
“To Cheapness,” he said, “was the road they took.”
Then every Glug who was not too fat
Turned seventeen handsprings, and jumped on his hat.
They fined the Glug with the cast in his eye
For looking both ways–which he did not deny–
And for having no visible precedent, which
Is a crime in the poor and a fault in the rich.

So the Glugs continued, with greed and glee,
To buy cheap clothing, and pills, and tea;
Till every Glug in the land of Gosh
Owned three clean shirts and a fourth in the wash.
But they all grew idle, and fond of ease,
And easy to swindle, and hard to please;
And the voice of Joi was a lonely voice,
When he railed at Gosh for its foolish choice.
But the great King grinned, and the good Queen gushed,
As the goods of the Ogs were madly rushed.
And the Knight, Sir Stodge, with a wave of his hand,
Declared it a happy and prosperous land…………..”

Senator Lambie calls out China’s domination of Australia

Renegade Senator Jacquie Lambie calls on the Federal Government to develop a backbone when dealing with China.  One of Jacquie’s better speeches.

Cairns Post determined to divide communities and shut down Cape York tourism

Local News

The Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council is holding fast against a rogue traditional owner who has told the Cairns Post newspaper he will shut down Pajinka at the Tip of Cape York to tourists.

Mayor Patricia Yusia said today tourists should not listen to Michael Solomon who is claiming to be a traditional owner for Pajinka.

The only graffiti that can be seen at the Tip of Cape York Peninsula
is on these road signs or on the ruins of the Pajinka resort decrying the wreckage of the multi million dollar resort left in tatters by some local Aborigines

Nor should they take any notice of the paper claiming the Pajinka Road will be closed because “it will not happen,” said the Mayor.

“The road is open, nothing has changed and tourists are always welcome.

“The council is in charge of the Pajinka Road not Michael Solomon.”

The glaring headline on the front page of the Cairns Post claiming the gate will be locked on the Tip is more beating up and has no basis in fact because there is no gate there or at any other of the tourist hotspots mentioned in the article.

Cairns News has been told Mr Solomon is upset because the State Government had knocked back a funding application for works at the Pajinka site, hence the attack on tourists which impacts the NPARC community as a whole, not tourists or the state government.

It was just a year ago that other rogue Pajinka claimants from Sydney signed up for the sale of the Pajinka site to a Chinese company.

Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter raised the matter in Parliament at the time citing national security concerns and after several genuine traditional owners discovered the imminent sale it was stopped.

Bamaga sources, in a previous article in Cairns News, said that Michael Solomon was not a rightful traditional owner or claimant of Pajinka. The source said Mr Solomon is a Solomon Islander whose grandfather moved from the Pacific Islands settlement on Moa Island to the mainland.

Blackfella politics has always been part and parcel of life on Cape York Peninsula and in some cases it has become ‘dog eat dog’ over land claims and boundaries between competing groups.

Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke was a cunning operator and he knew the land rights bill he started would divide Aboriginal and Islander people forever. After Hawke was deposed by Paul Keating in 1991 the Native Title bill was enacted in 1993.

Allowing governments to patronise indigenous people by divide and conquer tactics means the government of the day stays in control of indigenous people leaving them entirely dependent on the government teat to exist.

White people too however have long been caught in this divisive net.

We ask readers to appreciate the damage being done to Far Northern tourism by The Cairns Post running fake news stories particularly after the Covid plandemic has left no option for the majority of Cairns tourist operators but to close down as soon as the federal Jobkeeper funding program finishes at the end of the month.

Where is Labor state member Cynthia Lui or Federal Liberal Member Warren Entsch?
