Maybe because Australia slugs more for everything than any other country in the world...government taxes are rip offs.

The GST may be a rip off but it is not the reason for higher prices in Australia. It's all about international companies charging us more because our economy is good.

...Although those international companies are trying to blame local retailers and distributors.

What else to expect from convict creed.

They have rich mines and a continent worth of stolen land at the disposal of a mere 20 million people, the highest resource per capita nation in the world.

Yet they steal. And when caught, instead of apologizing, they'll defend their thievery and whinge about high prices. Guess how the prices are in resource scarce nations like Germany, France Japan or even Pakistan.

Indian and Australian are thieves.

Tell us why you really hate Australia so much? Cant be just because we trade with China, it would be stupid to ignore the huge demand for our recources from one of our closest neighbours, even then how does that affect you? Or is it Assange? could you hate a whole country because 1 person is a bit of a weasel, who I might add hardly gets a mention over here except whenever he dodges another attempt to exdradite him

In the current climate and with the laws the way they are it might be safer to stay mum, especially seeing government is in the pockets of these companies.

We also get charged "extortionate" amounts for online content that costs considerably less in overseas markets. It is because of the "greedy Jews" for the most part.
