    You are not an Australian farmer!

    You do not own the land.

    The land is a title and it is owned by Australian people.

    You crap about socialism and communism are just your BS for effect.

    Fact is you are not Australian!

    Much of the time Australian regulation prevents individual farmers from selling their produce overseas.

    If we had less Government regulation in regards to who and how we sold our produce to, then Aussie farms would be more profitable - and therefore less likely to sell to foreign buyers.

    Don't blame the foreigners for buying Australian farms, blame the well meaning Communists in Parliament for making direct sales between farmers and buyers so difficult!

    WTF...does that mean...you really are arguing into stupidity.

    You are another import that doesn't have the Australian folk at interest.

    So where do you come from?

    If I am not an Australian, then 97% of Australia's current population isn't either... your definition of Australian is pretty limited.

    Being Australian's, are we allowed to voice our opinion on the matter? If no one does, our dumb government may never act to stop it and one day soon most of Australia's vast farms/lands will be in foreign hands and once they get them they will never sell them because world is getting more and more overpopulated. Australia's long term loss so a small numbers of Australian large farm/land holders today can get extra bucks in their pockets when they sell. That is not in Australia's long term interests.

    Where I come from is irrelevant to the topic (nevertheless I'm from Queensland) - and considering your Communist leanings, you probably don't understand, empathize or know how difficult it is for farmers to sell their produce direct to the public (either locally or overseas).

    While I don't doubt your genuine intentions, your views if put into effect would not support the Australian national interests.

    If you and your buddies value Australian farmland so much, you are free to invest in your own farm.

    Don't try and put your hand in our pockets by dictating who we can and can't sell our land to.

    Typical of you would be Australians...you would sell us out because of your ethnic background and you treat our land just as dirt! Sorry but our land is Australian land for Australian folk and their children.

    If you promote and want other nations to buy our land because your family has history with war mongering mother-fuckers who invade or take over then sorry...that's not what Australian folk are about.

    We want Australian agricultural land to be owned by Australians and we want residential land that is affordable.

    Nonsense is your social and communistic comments, they are like glass-house BS.

    F=ck foreigners pushing up land prices so that folk can't afford a place to call home and F=ck foreigners buying up our Agricultural land.

    Australia rejects large land sale to China

    "The form in which the Kidman portfolio has been offered as a single aggregated asset has rendered it difficult for Australian bidders to be able to make a competitive bid," said Morrison.

    S. Kidman's spokesman said the company was "disappointed and confused" by the Treasurer's decision.

    The previous offer for S. Kidman by two Chinese companies wasn't approved because the Anna Creek cattle station in South Australia is the location of a military weapons testing range.

    You are wrong on both counts.

    But while you are here, I'll try and educate you on the difficulties Australian farmers have.

    Suppose I have a cow (which I have a few).

    Why is it that I am only allowed to sell my cow for around $5.45/Kg*, while the supermarket can sell it for $36.99/Kg?
    The answer isn't China.

    If I could sell my cows directly to China (or many other nations), they would pay me many times over what I get here.

    What you will find is that there are only a handful of corporations with the export permits to sell overseas - and they make the margins.

    Do your homework on all the regulatory issues that Australian farmers face daily - and then you might be a bit more understanding on why China isn't the issue, but our own well meaning regulations.

    I still think we should finish selling off Sydney, and then wall it off from the rest of the nation. Maybe dump most of the politicians there before we lay the last brick.

    Anyway...to conclude and so this thread doesn't fall-into an individual nasty attack.

    My view is that...Australian agricultural land, residential land and water should only be sold to Australians.

    imo...we have no need to sell agricultural land especially large parcels of land when the total Australian Ag land is only about 6%.

    Many folk think it is their right that once they pay for land that they can do as they please; this is incorrect as many would be farmers have learnt about water and soil rights and of course what you can do on "your" land.

    All Australians pay taxes, we have the right to ensure that land and the water that flows over that land benefits all and as we battle those who have the money to take our land we must stay strong to ensure that we and our children can prosper by having ownership of fertile land and water for Australians.

    We have all seen how governments of other lands have caused suffering to average folk and we have seen the greed that consumes.

    What we need to do is "Not" tolerate the expansionism of Asia which has thread itself into many countries and expanded not only its presense by land grabbing but also it's intention to dominate gold, silver and the world.

    Some would say...it's ok but they support their helraldry.

    Australia has everything we need to be a strong country, we don't need other countries buying up our land.

    China owns the port of Darwin.

    Don't let them own anymore of Australia.

    Shiney doesn't believe in the legitimacy of nations/states to impose their collective will on individuals, but seems fine for state-run or state-controlled companies to expand their presence and influence in Australia.

    The fact is, individuals do not have unlimited rights when it comes to actions that would harm others. The selling off of large tracts of farmland to a powerful, authoritarian police state with an extremely poor record of dealings with its neighbours and own citizens would result in a substantial increase in risk and expense to Australians.
