Poisoned Dairy Products from Communist China Expose the Farce of Free Trade
The poisoned dairy products being sold in Australia that were manufactured in Communist China would never have arrived on our shores but for the misguided doctrine of free trade.
The easiest way to protect our farmers and manufacturers from oblivion, not to mention ourselves from being poisoned, is to ban food imports from countries that don't have the same stringent safeguards for quality that we have.
So far, courtesy of the promoters of free trade, among imports from Communist China we have had toys covered with lead paint, toothpaste containing anti-freeze, blankets contaminated with formaldehyde and now chocolate and milk products deliberately contaminated with melamine.
What is this death wish which pushes us to lumber ourselves with second-rate products while we run our farmers off the land and close down our factories?
Europe now protects its food producers because Europeans starved in World War II.
If we close down our farms and become dependent on imported food, come another war and we will starve too.
One Nation says: "Buy Australian, boycott imported food products that can be grown or made here and give our country a future".
