Before embracing GM like fools, research the backlash in Europe ,USA and other nations against Monsanto and co. GMO's are owned by the manufacturer not the user. Don't play with fire.
We have entitlement Geronimo,hard earned entitlement.You are the embarrassment.
Wong will always be wong
Don"t trust the National"s Jock,They were supportive of the Lima Declaration in 1975.That has done us wonders.

This country has has pandered to the multinationals for fifty years,no tax income for Australia with the double taxation agreement still intact.Let us continue to screw the little people.Arrogant big end of town treacherous hero.
It is called pricing yourself out of business.
The sooner the better.
There people of Iraq had as much right as the rest of us to be fed.When does any nation have the right to starve another?Especially when the sanctions were placed based on so many lies. Money is the real reason behind all wars,the misery and destruction is a mere flesh wound to the military industrial complex.
Section 100 of our constitution is being trodden on by Corporations and complicit politicians.
Leave Flugge and Geary alone the only ones that got a number one haircut out of the Iraq deal was the Australian grain grower. The Paris club whoever they may be have some answering to do.

The ACCC will never bring resolution that is a benefit to the Australian farmer or the Australian consumer.
ACCC should be defunded, what a waste of tax money.
Good on you for resisting peer pressure Geoff we all may learn something valuable.
