Bazz, i am confident we can do it.

Should be a lot easier than putting our eggs in one basket.

If you succeed with three out of four countries it will turn out as win, win win for more countries and Australia.

We have no choice but to trt, in any case.

Bazz,

It also means we need lots of cheap energy which means lots of natural gas as this is the century of gas but since just about our entire future reserves of natural gas have been sold to China it puts us back o square one and dependent on China which the China had forecast when they conned Australia into selling off all of its natural gas reserves to them.

You've been had fellas! China has got you by the short and curlies. (Is that Andrew Forrest I see smirking to himself in the corner?)

In 2002 Little Johnny Howard called a press conference to announce, with the widest grin he could manage, that after "years" of negotiation, Australia's mining interests had pulled off a $25 billion deal to supply China with liquefied natural gas. The initial sale contract set a bargain basement price for our natural gas that couldn't be negotiated upwards. That was a shocker, but that is what the Howard government allowed. Was Little Johnny wearing his green and gold tracky dacks at the time. More likely getting a free side order of 'egg foo young'. All for the Australian people of course!

Over the years I believe more than just Labor's, the "Honorable" Sam Dastyari have enjoyed a free bowl of 'chop suey' in Beijing at Australia's expense.

Back in the day, the British created the Arabian royal family which then sold oil to the Poms at a penny a barrel. It made a very small Arab elite very wealthy, along with the Pommy oil co, the Arab peasants at the time got nothing.

Why don't the Chinese set up an Australian Royal Family with King Scotty I as its head, along with Crown Prince Simon handling "negotiations", will the Chinese take the royal minister for trade, Crown Prince Simon's phone calls? That is the burning question. I'm sure the Chinese will be up for buying our natural resources at twopence a ton! BTW, to be fair the court jester Albo, will want to be in on "negotiations" all in the sprite of bipartisanship. What do you say to that?

Do I sense that the Chinese buyers of our products are seeing an
opportunity to screw our producers while the going is good ?
A bit of slow delivery may stir things a bit.

BTW, am I imagining things or has Madam Tussaud's contributed to the
Chinese Government image of its leadership ?

troops with tracking heads ?
