    Still has influence today, and still will have in future...just in different form.
    TV, newspapers, and social media (facebook).
    He taught his listeners how to 'fish'.
    Taught them to think, question, seek the truth...nothing but the truth.

    Gladys was in a meeting when she heard the news.
    She immediatly rang in
    Tony Abbott rang in.
    Albo rang in, he was quite jovial.

    Listeners rang in...said they'll be lost.

    Chinese spies? What about Japanese or German spies? You worried about them too? I don't think we have much to spy on

    Phase 3 or the reopening plan "The government will also consider cross-Tasman, Pacific Island and international student travel" . Yep Scomo is ready to bring the Chinese students back- the government has no intentions of ongoing funding of universities to make up the 4 billion per year shortfall that would exist

    If the USA or any other country will gives us the 45 billion surplus in trade that we lose then i'm all for it! Dont hold your breath though

    In the interim do what i do- buy Australian whenever you can!! Especially food-support our primary producers
    I already do that.
    Maybe consumer boycotts might make a difference, that's what China is doing to us too.

    China state owned newspaper.
    Crystal clear what they're doing.

    We could be a great country again without them...and it is guaranteed we'd feel better...no more "Australia is only gum under China's shoe" [they said it].
    We could make mobile phones, who needs theirs? anyway, Korea makes phones.
    No China here, we wouldn't have to worry about Chinese spies possibly being everywhere...and we'd own the port of Darwin again.
    No flights, no ships, no immigration, no more killer virus entering.
    No more takeover of all our assets...there are plusses everywhere you look.

    We import food. We could stop doing that, and eat our own food.
    We could use the coal in our own steelworks, heating, electricity generation...coal-fired heating in our homes. As a schoolboy I used to light the coal/coke fire in our living room every afternoon in winter, in suburban Sydney.
    We could have steam trains again.
    We could build steel frame homes instead of timber ones termites eat.
    We would be just fine.

    Kosi cast iron blue enamel coke heater 69cm high

    That's how we used to do things in the olden days. Before China came along.

    1. Coal is a natural occurring substance whereas Coke prepared material with few impurities and high Carbon content, usually made from Coal. 2. Coal has a Volatile matter content whereas Coke has relatively very low Volatile matter content which suits it for a better fuel.

    It won't, we'll just keep cowering before their red flag and all it stands for, as usual.
    How many years a 'slave' before we wake up?

    China just destroyed our barley industry! More of our farmers ruined. We must do something, instead of just saying "thank you".

    Should give that nice man with the whip a medal, instead of tossing him in prison.

    We don't need their vehicles, plenty of other places from where we can buy cars.
    We don't need to buy food from China, America has plenty of food we can buy.

    We could make our own phone covers, or go without.

    We could have steel works here again, make our own steel, make our own whitegoods, use our own steel for construction, proper steel guaranteed good standard every time.

    New outbreak of Coronavirus in Wuhan.

    Here we go again.
    Luckily, passengers on any flights from China have to go into 14day quarantine here.

    NSW only new case of the virus is a person who was in quarantine after flying in from overseas.
    Britain has only recently adopted this quarantine policy.
    Don’t let anyone arrive here with it. Test them before boarding a flight to Aus. No point in fighting the virus here when we can restrict its entry.
