We have an unAustralian Government that puts the interests of Multinational business first, making unfavorable trade deals with Europe, Asia and America. Where our local producers loose their shirts and literally the farm from right under feet. Meanwhile, our so called bilateral trading Partners prevent Australian businesses from buying land in Asia as well as let these trade Partners invent all kinds of fancy justification to place trade barriers on our exports under all kinds of pretexts. China excels at this even disregarding contract agreements by not paying as agreed or not paying at all.
It's pretty clear Canberra is focused on profits for the big boys, the multinational Business's that want the trade deals that suit them to sell and cheap produce from third world countries without labour regulations, sometimes using child labour to undercut legitimate producers in Australia. It does not matter if, it's a Liberal or Labor Government. They both facilitate this unfair trade.
Our so called Government long ago betrayed us, we are not obliged to support them, in fact it's risky to do so. The two party system representing our polarised society, is now reached it's expiry date. If, we continue with this facade masquarading as guine choice when it's a tag team representing of sock puppets doing the bidding of multinational greed. We'll just cut each others throats and the Multinationals will be all the while laughing on the side lines.
The solution to this is a United Australian Party that represents all Australians, sounds unrealistic but there's no other way to defeat these predatory forces that play on splits within our society.
