The Queensland State Government’s push to depopulate the regions has taken another turn for the worse as farmers in the Paradise Dam irrigation area in the South Burnett face water allocations of just 14 per cent, down from a usual 80 per cent.
Because of a farcical lowering of the dam wall by the state government owned entity Sunwater, allegedly due to engineering faults, farmers will suffer.
Irrigators say it will be the end of the line for many of them.
Then the socialist state government plans to allow the corrupt Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to rewrite the animal cruelty act which is akin to placing Dracula in charge of the blood bank.
Farmers will be decimated by new and harsh animal cruelty laws which will make livestock ownership impractical and nonviable by stopping the castrating, fire branding and dehorning of male cattle– thus driving more farmers from the regions.
The Nationals, once the farmers’ friend has dumped its core support base in the bush and now is cosying up to the Liberals and the inner-city latte set.
Three Katters Australian Party state members assisted by a lone One Nation member have been representing rural Queensland in the absence of the LNP for the past two terms of parliament.
With the livestock industry at its most buoyant in recent history and cattle numbers at an all time low the Labor Party can see another opportunity to push people from the bush to make them re-settle in the cities where they can be controlled under the providential Covid regime hoax.
The depopulation agenda which will ultimately result in a loss of production as family farms falter, has also got a hand up from another prong of the Labor attack.
Pastoralists on Cape York Peninsula, the last bastion of cheap cow breeder country in Australia have been active on the front line for a decade or more defending their Pastoral Holdings from the ongoing Labor and Greens assault.
Aboriginal encroachment of their properties is steady and continuous as graziers are forced to negotiate Indigenous Land Use Agreements with Aboriginal Prescribed Body Corporations before any change of land use such as building stock water dams or clearing fence lines.
Then along ride the cowboy cops from Cairns in deference to local police operations hammering white pastoralists along property roads and insignificant tracks sometimes on private property enforcing unworkable traffic and gun policies, issuing huge fines for unregistered farm vehicles or for carrying a firearm in a vehicle without it being locked up.
As one white cattle worker said: “I was fined by a Cairns copper for driving an unregistered four wheel drive car along a private road running through our property and this is not the first time they have struck on the Cape. They check the cars for road- worthiness. It is going on all the time.
“They are trying to drive us out and give the land back to the blacks to do nothing with and let it go to wasteland like all the other cattle properties they have seized.”
Road worthy certificates are not required in Cook Shire which covers all of Cape York.
Another grazier was apprehended on a road through his property for carrying a firearm in his vehicle, about to shoot a wild dog he saw menacing his sheep, goats and calves. The errant and hopeless cowboy cop from Cairns grabbed his gun, immediately checked the chamber of the bolt action rifle and in doing so unknowingly chambered a round from the magazine. He waved the rifle about uncontrollably causing the occupants of the car to duck fearing they would be shot. The officer did not know how to operate a simple bolt action rifle. Remember he carries a semi-auto .40 cal Glock lead pelter.
Then along came Wyatt Earp, the sharpest aerial shooter in the north. Contracted by the national parks service, helicopter culling of cattle, horses and pigs has been quietly going on for several years. Valuable branded and unbranded cattle belonging to white pastoralists straying into any state or Aboriginal owned land have been shot from the air often leaving wounded animals suffering for days on the ground.
One white pastoralist was left fuming when a horse was shot from the air at a salt lick trough and left to die while its foal was running in circles around its helpless mother.
Leaving a mare to die and rot at a crucial salt trough kept the traumatised cattle away until the manager turned up a week or more later to replenish the salt which the cattle had not touched.
The pastoralist said the foal lived and now runs with the cattle.
These atrocious government-sanctioned activities are an almost daily event on Cape York according to those who live there which they say are part and parcel of the campaign to drive them off their properties.
Another attempt to surreptitiously shoot valuable cattle north east of Weipa two weeks ago was thwarted when an alert property owner spotted several drums of Avgas aviation fuel at a remote airstrip.
Inquiries discovered the national parks service was about to start aerial shooting cattle, the property of indigenous and white property owners.
A call from Member for Traeger Robbie Katter to the Environment Minister’s office was all it took to shake them down.
The Minister’s office denied any cattle were to be shot and that the helicopter was being used to show traditional owners their property boundaries.
Subsequent calls by property owners to the local TO’s revealed no knowledge of any helicopter flights for them to inspect property.
Such are the day-to-day events being hosted across Cape York Peninsula by a deceitful state Labor Party hell-bent on turning the once prosperous Peninsula into a world heritage park at the request of its mortgagees, Rothschild Bank.
Voter fraud keeps these socialists in power.
