Reaping What You Sow
Amanda Vanstone will need more than her substantial hide to protect the Federal Liberals from the voting peccadillos of thousands of disgruntled and thankfully educated parents, who are already unable to see any viable blue collar future in Australia for their children as school leavers.
Amanda Vanstone and her party has supported this wrong-minded political exploitation of third world countries for decades, now it is accommodated within this countries borders.
State owned Hunan Industrial Equipment at Wetherill Park, apart from being an embarrassment to Joe Tripodi, and Minister John Della Bosca at a State level, is a localised microcosm of what many thinking people are able to understand is the rape and pillage of Australasia by world class money men.
The interest of our Papua New Guinea and Timor allies in the gas reserves between Australia and New Guinea/Timor have been traded away to Indonesian dictators for a shameful and embarrassing kickback, in full view of anyone with a TV and hearing.
This whole process will be exposed as simply bad politics, regardless of which politician or party indulges in and supports it! Australians have never played on a level playing field, mincing about on the world stage only to become the lowest common denominator is not our lot.
Edward James, NSW
