Home' Ausmarine : December 2010 Contents According to the history books, in World War II the Australian
Government was actively discussing allowing the Japanese to
keep the northern part of the country. It was getting close for
the time to cede the territory, as the potential invaders clearly
did not share our culture, our heritage, our values, nor even our
taste in food or Aussie Rules.
History is full of cession/secession stories and Australia has its
fair share of such talk, mainly from Western Australia, including
Hutt River Province, and the Court Government during Malcolm
Fraser’s Prime Ministership.
Now with 15 percent of the electorate voting Greens we have an
enemy within that does not wish to share our heritage in any
shape or form. They also do not believe in the rest of us indulging
in boating, fishing, mining, nuclear energy and are openly
supportive of same-sex policies, re-introduction of death duties
and tree hugging.
There is no quick way to get rid of them. They pervade every
level of Federal, State and local government with their hugely
obstructive EPA policies that have gone beyond any semblance of
the word reasonable.
The centre of their peculiar cult is Tasmania, Victoria and the
ACT, which roughly amounts to about 25 percent of the country,
so it would seem that a fair and reasonable way would be to cede
25 percent of the country to them.
We can put a big electric fence around them and rename the
place Greensland. The rest of the country can be New Australia,
where the majority of us have already clearly established that the
green agenda is unaffordable for any sane participant in the global
On the other side of the planet, the UK’s Prime Minister, David
Cameron, after inheriting a woefully abysmal national debt, has
commenced stanching the massive haemorrhaging of public funds.
He has identified sectors of the public service, including
Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) and divisions of the EPA
for immediate downsizing of, as he calls them, “petty tyrants”. His
latest eradication was Legal Aid as another “unaffordable”. Poverty
is such a great leveller.
Cameron has signalled that small to medium enterprises have
been unnecessarily and unfairly hampered for years and in an
attempt to stimulate the economy, they have to be given
encouragement not punishment. Cameron’s actions are a lesson
Alas, I digress! Back to New Australia. We can have signs all
around the coast saying, “Rack off, we’re full” and a big arrow
pointing towards the Greensland port of Melbourne, so that illegal
immigrants are under no illusion that they are welcome in New
Australia. If they want to come, fill in the application forms like
everyone else has to do.
Then we can install a few nuclear power plants nationwide. The
faculty of Nuclear Engineering should be re-opened (yes an earlier
regime with an unaccountable fascination for stupidity closed it!)
and the Nation of New Australia should become a developer of
Nuclear Technology, not just dirt diggers.
We can eliminate the 80 percent of regulations that are
blatantly hampering all levels of the economy, including Marine
Parks and OH&S departments, as they never were affordable.
We should get our talented mining engineers to develop and
implement the Bradfield Scheme and finally tap the Northern Rivers
to permanently irrigate the head waters of the Murray Darling, thus
creating a huge food bowl, employment and export opportunities.
In New Australia we can all get back to work without some
“petty tyrant” telling us how we couldn’t, shouldn’t and wouldn’t
do what we want to do, for the country to prosper.
We should start the new nation by having a National Sorry Day,
but I doubt we could catch all those slimy bank managers in the
one sweep. Perhaps, for a start, we could get ex-heads of EPA,
OH&S and associated sycophants on TV, on their knees,
apologising to all business owners, miners and exporters for
decades of stuffing them around, and to all tax payers for wasting
National service is an immediate must for the new nation, with
no exceptions, to give our “Y” generation a dose of reality together
with a measure of discipline, dignity and self esteem. Yes, I admit
they will regret having their peculiar tattoos when someone is
shooting at them.
A strong defence department will be a priority, but focussed on
the acquisition of significantly cheaper and commercially useful
equipment where possible.
Coastal shipping will be incentivised for national operators and
tied to defence, but not protected by cabotage. No closed shop
unions here, that policy was unaffordable decades ago.
Coastal shipping, of course, would by-pass the silted up Port of
Melbourne as they refuse to engage maintenance dredging under
their new Greensland mantra. Anyway, they will be too busy with
an armada of people smuggling boats arriving daily.
I like it! And I can’t see any down side, because it is a
If you are an anti-nuclear, tree hugging, mine-hating
greenie, you can move to Greensland and enjoy your version of
utopia while your kids can “do what feels good”, smoke dope
and vegetate themselves into state-aid Triffids, as there won’t be
On the other hand, if you actually want to work, or start a
business and get rewarded for your efforts, go fishing and boating,
New Australia sounds great!
