The "I can't believe it's not politics" thread.
The IPA! The Lib's intellectual power station.
Coal fired, of course!
A Chinese company has put forward a multi-billion-dollar plan to build a new city on the Papua New Guinean island of Daru, which sits on the nation's sea border with Australia. Daru Island lies in the Torres Strait and is only about 200 kilometres from the Australian mainland.
In November last year Papua New Guinea's Government signed a memorandum of understanding with another Chinese company to investigate building a $200 million fisheries park on Daru.
Invading is so twentieth century.
Now you just buy out the owners and colonise wth your own people till demographics renders the handover complete.
It sure ain't for the benefit on the PNG citizens hey Blowin
Not like Ok Tedi, ay Slug.
Don't worry about the Chinees, mate, Blowie'll be fighting them on the beaches. Or on here.
He's even got a coupla designated threads for it all.
Meanwhile in Australia...
and allied to yesterday's ruminations on the RBA and LNP being at cross purposes:
The (true) horror...the horror...
I reckon the scary bit is this:
Craig Kelly chairs the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Law Enforcement.
Andrew Bragg chairs the Select Committee on Financial Technology and Regulatory Technology.
George Christensen chairs the Joint Standing Committee on Trade and Investment Growth.
Matthew Canavan is deputy chair of the Select Committee on Job Security.
And Tim Wilson chairs the Standing Committee on Economics.
It's a bog shop for arse wipes.
Different intent but yes agree Facto, Ok Tedi, one of the worst environmental disasters caused by humans, by the great Aussie Company BHP who didn't give a shit to the destruction they caused
That is very scary Westofthelake
Lets ramp up immigration since we need the growth to recover from Covid and also we don't have enough skilled labour in Aussie land or ones with the incorrect skill sets....
George has a few dozen "daughters" that he needs to get down from the Philippines.
Fuckwit Paleo Pete could be brought in as an "adviser" to obese cunt Kelly
I imagine the stationing of a hefty US military permanent facility in our North won’t be too far away.
Not beyond the realms of possibility Blowin, running their ops through the 99 year CCP lease of Darwin Port
Ask the yanks if they can shoot and pick fruit then your in.
“ A Chinese company says it wants to build a new $39bn city with a major seaport, industrial area and free-trade zone on Papua New Guinea’s south coast, just kilometres from Australian territory.
The “New Daru City” proposal will escalate concerns within Australian security agencies over China’s interest in PNG’s impoverished Western Province, where another Chinese company plans to build a $200m fisheries industrial park.
Hong Kong-registered WYW Holding, a developer of Myanmar’s New Yangon City, has asked PNG Prime Minister James Marape to approve the development under a “Build Operate Transfer” arrangement, where PNG would receive the assets after an unspecified period of Chinese ownership and management.
…Mr Mo said the proposed city would span 100sq km and include fisheries and agricultural processing facilities, and provision for “intensive manufacturing”.
…Daru, which has a population of just 20,000 people and is the centre of a multidrug-resistant tuberculosis epidemic, is about 200km from the Australian mainland but within kilometres of Australian islands in the Torres Strait.”
New daily on fire lately. that alan kohler article linked above is excellent
"That $260 billion, or whatever it ends up being, is very unlikely to be paid back. Why pay yourself back. In fact, the RBA should buy all of the $800 billion Government debt, rising to $1 trillion this year, and cancel it. Just write it off"
House prices to the moon.
Increasing house prices : The only metric for success in Australia
"Don't worry about the Chinees, mate, Blowie'll be fighting them on the beaches. Or on here."
and some other fuckwit will be defending them on the beaches... right to the bitter bitter end...
why is that I wonder?
I gotta say, I find it most disappointing that PNG have folded to chinese influence so readily
I know oz has backed off a lot of aid to PNG, ...and that PNG poilies are much more susceptible to dirty chinese money than an aldi bag craving oz politician...
but seriuosly...is there no loyalty earned whatsoever?
no concern or craving for a better deal for the little people of PNG?
their pollies should be strung up big time for selling out of the people of PNG down this dirty road
What's loyalty worth when there's a buck at stake, it's called capitalism fellas.
+ globalism version 2.0
(orchestrated and defended by the some very strange bedfellows)
a lot of logging on goin on over there
personal device and 'sponsored' device perhaps...
'...those memes don't make themselves, no matter how lame they are...'
Unfortunately true Memo, all that cheap shit sold in retail, made in some overseas sweat shop/factory that serves no purpose except to end up in landfill within six months (at best)
Keeps the economy going though because I "need" it
House prices going up I hear , mate brought block in Mullumbimby late last year that is still being developed and can’t build for 18 months , cost him $425 ,000 he put 5% deposit , full amount paid when development finishes , 3 days after purchasing he was offered $40,000 more , 2 days ago real estate called and offered him $100,000 more than he paid . He said no. The 80 blocks originally advertised last year sold in less than 2 days. He got $250,000 more than he expected for his original house in ewingsdale .
editing posts... bad form, ...apparently...
according to the thread police anyway... (acab)
(well it is... kind of... if changes the meaning and flow of events...)
"Unfortunately true Memo, all that cheap shit sold in retail, made in some overseas sweat shop/factory that serves no purpose except to end up in landfill within six months (at best)"
yep, and memo is enabling it... defending it... turning a total blind eye..
(with his one good eye)
And, Its a time for swillnuts to get even more stridently vocal... for once... Considering this obviously false, shameful, highly coveted and protected swillnut standard bearer's emblem:
'Systemic racism does not exist in Australia.
Unless you are claiming a conspiracy theory which states there is a cabal of like minded individuals who operate at the highest levels of government, business and community who convene in secret to discuss their plans to subjugate and oppress minorities.
Is this the case ?'
Like cheap knockoff copys of Mein Kamp that you still have not read by the looks Syp

Pick your plight.
