See how that works?

That is our backyard. This is our neighbourhood and we are very concerned about any activity that is taking place in the Pacific Islands.”

    Ukraine is our backyard as well.

    We’re a big country. We have a big backyard.

    Indeed. Back in the day when the Frogs were nuking Mururoa Atoll, Australia was complaining about nukes in “our backyard”.

    Mururoa is further from Australia than Hiroshima.

    Does that mean the Darwin Port Agreement is being reviewed?

    Or Home Affairs is investigating Andrews Government ‘belt & road’ agreements?

    Yep, and we’ll have a nuclear submarine right up there (well, in the next 20-30 years or so…maybe) to prove it.

    Sun Tzu might advise her to stop talking right about now.

    We shouldn’t blame ourselves entirely, however.
    The Solomon Islanders are not children. If they choose evil for $, f-k them.

    NFA, below. Read and weep:

    Yes RD, and I think Newcastle as well.

    The point about Victoriastan though is that there were a lot of legislative changes made which had been drafted by ‘interesting’ international firms.

    That “Homeland Security” are only there to stamp their feet after the event is pretty p*ss poor.

    Lucky the National Cabinet came along!

  8. NoFixedAddress says:

    and RD

    One of the legislative changes was to do with Victorian gold mining.

    So this is worse than Daniel Andrews & Xi agreement in Viktoria?

    Can we invade Viktoria and overthrow the commo government there?

    As a Victorian I absolutely insist on it.

    To fill in the necessary background … Solomon Islanders did not quietly knuckle under during their covid lockdowns, and ScoMo figured it was our job to send troops.

    If Putin had done the same it would have been “unprovoked aggression” … but when White Liberal Australia does that to some black micro nation it’s all fine … right up until the Solomin Islanders decide they prefer the CCP boot on their heads instead of the soft Aussie sheepskin boot. Let’s see how that plays out for them.

    Solomon Islands’ people agreeing to the CCP?

    I’d imagine the CCP bribed Solomon Island officials / government people to get what they want – without reference to the people.

    Similar to what a Vietnamese associate told me about what the CCP does/did in Vietnam
    What say did the Victorian public have with the deals the local commos made with the CCP?

    None.
    All done with Dictator Dan’s typical, “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” secret backroom deals.
    No accountability, no responsibility.
    Just about the only good thing that ScoMo has done was torpedo DD’s Belt & Road deal with China.

    That’s a very good point Lee, ScoMo has done exactly one good thing. If you want to go back all the way to when he stopped the abuse of maritime emergency protocols to allow leaky boat illegal immigration, then we might begrudgingly count two good things.

    It’s easy to gloss over and think of the guy as being completely useless … like Turnbull for example … but no we must admit that he is ALMOST completely useless.

    sure… the ABC told me that as well.

    How soon after was “The National Cabinet” formed and what is hidden?

    What is hidden ??? That’s easy – everything, all their dealings with the WEF / Cabal

  17. Tel says:

    … without reference to the people …

    You are quite right Tony, our noir brothers in the Solomons are just as abused as we are, for all the same reasons.

    Russia vs Ukraine is Slav killing Slav … their leaders don’t see this as a problem … although neither side has a genuine hatred of the other. While Putin uses this as an excuse to increase his power and bypass the democratic process in Russia, at the same time Zelensky also outlaws opposition in his own country, and shows his disregard for democracy, and so too the Western powers are busy throwing free speech in the bin, demanding total conformity and hey bigger military budgets if you please. All of them use the crisis (every crisis) for political purposes.

    The real divide is between ordinary people who are held accountable for their mistakes (subject to rule of law) vs the protected class who can do what they like and know there will be no consequence to themselves. My personal belief is that Hunter Biden voluntarily turned in his own laptop because deep down he wanted to face justice, or at least wanted to understand whether he could ever face justice.

    Tel,

    I’d put an asterisk next to his stopping the boats as that was under PM Abbott. If it happened now I think he would let them in. I have no trust in him at all. He will do what is best for him (or his masters).
