Will China be able to treat Australian cotton farmers the same way McCains have treated the potato farmers of Ballarat?
China has been stockpiling Australian cotton for many years and also owns Cubbie Station.
It will be able to grow cotton to top up their stockpile, and if they need to buy cotton from the Australian cotton farmers China could lower the price of cotton, making it hard on Australian cotton farmers just like McCains did to the Ballarat potato farmers in 2012 and 2013.
McCains told the potato farmers they didn't want all their crops and were putting the price down.
Their actions put many farmers in debt with foreign investors, but at least they are buying our land unlike the British.
If you read Girt by David Hunt, on pages 30 and 31 Great Britain justified its claim of sovereignty over Australia on the grounds that it was uninhabited waste and desert.
The doctrine of Terra Nullius literally land belonging to no-one meant Britain didn't have to pay compensation or apologise to anyone for settling in Australia because there was nobody there to pay compensation or apologise to.
I wonder then who those Aboriginal people were who told Governor Phillips and his fleet which arrived at Botany Bay on January 18, 1871 to go home, and how can New Holland be part of the British Crown when Governor Phillips never signed any treaty with the Aboriginal elders on the 26 January 1788?
New Zealand had a treaty saying it belonged to the British Crown, so can the British government show the Australian people any treaty showing that Australia is part of the British empire?
