Just incredible, in my view. The Libs had the chance to offload Woolnorth (VDL company) - then owned across the Ditch in NZ - to a very local Australian company, chief investor Jan Cameron.
But instead they chose Moon Lake Investments, which has doubts about its viability ( Mercury: Doubts surround China dairy deal ).
But no. Fuckin Greenies would get a hold of it. And that is definitely not allowed, say the Libs. So they flogged it off to China.
That makes a lot of sense, particularly when you learn the latest figures ( Fairfax: China now owns 10 times the amount of Australian land it did last year ).
And, also Fairfax: Chinese ownership of Australian farmland rises ....
Just think, Jan Cameron wrote on Tasmanian Times last year about VDL staying in Australian hands: • JAN CAMERON: VDL in Australian hands: What’s in it for Tasmania?
But at least golden week won’t be spoiled ...
