    Ha. Naive Australians. They have no idea the slippery palm deals that go on between China and Africa. Filth and s*** begets filth and s***.

    Our restrictions have been extended after detection of a 2nd case.

    My S-i-L staying here with us at the moment has had her G2G permit to visit Sydney in September, cancelled.

    Australia is really trailing with vaccination and it is costing the PM dearly in the polls.

    We should somehow re-invigorate a manufacturing industry. The trouble we have is unions - they are the root cause of the shutdown of our motoring industry, pushing wages to levels where the industry was no longer economically viable.

    I agree that they have a role to play. But I also think at a Federal level they did not get behind our vital industries at key points. Leaving the whole thing to the free market is an illusion. Even the US will pull out big stops to support its own car industry

    I'd be interested to see a comparison between the Australian car employee wages and other countries. Obviously wages are less in Mexico, but what about Japan, US?

    globalists like fascism where it apples well to their interests
    they like socialism where it applies to their interests
    they like communism where it applies to their interests
    they like crony capitolism (aka state capitalism aka banana republicism) wherever it might "work" (for them, so long as they've bought off those at the reins) too

    this is the subversion of nations, ultimately the ability to apply totalitarianism at higher and higher levels until it can be applied at one level and trickle down appropriately to all desired areas

    No doubt in my mind that unions have had and still have an important role to play. They also need to leave politics out of it but seeing as they established the Labor Party I can't see that happening.

    I don't agree that the average taxpayer should be liable to subsidise non-profitable industries.... Joe Blow average gets hit but the big earners somehow manage to avoid tax.
