ONE NATION CON-MERCHANTS FRAUD QUEENSLAND FARMERS ON SINGAPORE STRUGGLE
Pauline Hanson and Malcolm Roberts are off to areas just west of Townsville to "side" with farmers who may be pushed off land to accommodate a training centre for Singaporean soldiers.
Roberts is quoted as saying by The Australian today: "Senator Roberts, a Queenslander, yesterday reiterated the party’s opposition to the misuse or sale of productive farmland, particularly to foreign owners."
Of course, nothing stopped Hanson and Roberts siding with Gina Rinehart and the Chinese Shanghai-Cred in their purchase of the huge Kidman Pastoral Company. This new lash-up now exports Aussie beef to the Chinese market. Pauline Hanson said on video that because Rinehart had the majority share it was still an Australian company. This was wilful blindness. And because Roberts has had a relationship with Rinehart, it makes us wonder if all is proper.
Pauline Hanson's One Nation is really Pauline Hanson's Liberal Party Extra. The farmers can buy her line if they are minded, vote for her and tout for her, but at the end of the next State election in Queensland (as former Liberal-National Premier Campbell Newman puts it) One Nation may be in 'coalition' with Liberal-National Party (LNP). A few One Nation MP's will be there and a couple may be ministers in the LNP government. If the LNP supports the sale of the land to Singapore, then would the new 'government' be for it?
Farmers should reject Hanson as a fraud.
