i know china are a huge market but surely there are better people to trade with? they are nuts and trading with them is pointless when they are so unreliable

Unfortunately It's the price you pay when you destroy your own manufacturing base at the altar of corporate profit and share holder dividends (and do so with a country that has millions of low cost employees with few protections and also artificially controls it's currency)  at the expense of your own people.

All highly predictable.

I'm sure Tony Abbott will be off to Shanghai to shirtfront the Chinese government asap. Our clown kings in the LNP put on their big boy pants and attacked the 2nd biggest economy on the planet on behalf of the largest (and their mates in London and Tokyo).

Is anyone shocked people in China would rather not buy Australian products right now?

We need to make Jacinda Adern an Australian citizen and make her Prime Minister 

How a catastrophic global pandemic has given Australia a new lens on New Zealand http://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-11-28/what-australia-can-learn-from-new-zealand/12922956

Meant to post that this morning - well worth reading!

Scumbo has been flying Cormann around in an RAAF to try and get him installed in OECD @$4,000 dollars an hour. And he is trying to say he has a climate change policy as a strong point.

Whilst it would be good to have Australian in a senior position in the OECD, anyone from this bunch of right wing nut jobs is not the right one. I rather someone like Ken Henry

And after wasting our money on flying Cormann around, this article highlights the word that best describes the Morrison government DISINGENUOUS 

This is an article worth reading at whatever stage you are at as it discusses superannuation. Scumbo, Frankenstein and co hate Industry Superannuation Funds with a passion because many are union based. These funds stop all investments going to retail funds where their mates are waiting to make billions of dollars in fees from anyone who uses them.

God I hope people have seen thru the "daggy dad" bloke next door bullshit by the time the next election rolls around.

At least Abbott was what he was...and was transparent.

This man and his cronies are the most despicable representatives of their side of  politics I can recall.

Packaged as likeable by Uncle Rupert and his minions.

It's sickening. :bad:

Its nasty bullying politics..pick on the vulnerable ( as per robodebt) and give to their rich backers and corrupt feckers.

Let's prop up the housing ponzi and keep a broken system going by getting people to raid their super lol

I was permanently disgusted by Abbott...but at least he was seen widely as somewhat of a joke.

Sadly....these people are less perceived as a joke, and are therefore more insidious, and more dangerous.  :sad:

 

PS Hello Ed....if you ever visit here these days. :db:
