Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke has been in the news again, this time for being involved in selling off Australian farming land to China.
As an ex-PM, Hawke has a whole lot of perks, with office, phone and travel expenses being paid by the ever-suffering taxpayers. The question was raised as to whether he was using his taxpayer-funded facilities when he was doing his wheeling and dealing to sell off Australian land to the Chinese; Bob Hawke refused to comment. It looks like Bob doesn’t think we should know what he’s been doing with our money.
During his reign as Prime Minister, Bob Hawke helped destroy Australia’s industries by dismantling our tariff barriers, he helped destroy Australia’s social cohesiveness by further wrecking our immigration policies, and then he helped destroy the promise of the “people’s bank” (the Commonwealth bank) by selling it off.
Hawke pretended to be a PM who was a man of the people, “one of the boys”, but he wasn’t; he was against the people, as shown by his political actions that were destructive to Australian society. Labor PMs like Hawke and Keating are just as anti-Australian as Liberal PMs like Holt and Fraser; selling out the future of our nation. It is due to the actions of such men that Australia is being destroyed.
And now Hawke is helping to sell off Australian land to foreign interests.
Thanks Bob Hawke. For nothing.
The great labour leaders like John Curtin and Ben Chifley must be turning in their graves.
Thankfully there are people who are willing to continue on the pro-Australian traditions of men like Curtin and Chifley; people who aim to protect Australia’s future; people who intend to repair the massive damage caused by white ants like Hawke.
The Protectionists are the answer to our nation’s problems. Because Australia deserves protecting.
