Goodbye Australia? - Not Yet! by James Reed
For many years I have been arguing that “foreign investment” – actually no more than selling off the “family farm” – will lead to the dispossession of Australians.
The Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has said that Australia’s sovereignty is threatened by the sale of farmland to foreigners. (The Australian, October 27, 2016, p. 8) As well, patriotism gets undermined.
He said: “It is the essence of patriotism, the love of one’s country, (and) it is best delivered when you own that country. And there’s one thing that people are not prepared to do, and that’s to die for a rented country.”
I could not have put it better myself! Perhaps this is the first sign of a mainstream awakening to the great sell-off of Australia that both parties have allowed, and encouraged?
