Where does Government’s allegiance lie?
I re-read the article “Defence cautious on port leasing” ( The
5/11) again because I was in disbelief, disgust and angered that the Australian Government could put the country at such a high risk.
It is bad enough that now and then you read of more land sold or leased to China and other countries, but to sell or lease off the control of major harbours or ports, especially when our major defence locations are in close vicinity, is something I cannot fathom — now they have put Fremantle on the agenda.
I feel this is a major breach of Australia’s security.
It’s with decisions like this questions about where this Government’s allegiance lies.
China is more than active in mining prefabrication and many other aspects of trade in WA — imagine what would happen if they tied up our ports and harbours.
I also wonder what other questionable decisions have been made that have not been leaked to the Australian public.
I also wonder what our security watchdog is doing.
