Australia’s Fuel Supply a ‘National Security Problem’
By Blair Cottrell
Just over a month ago, I did some research and wrote a little about why Australian fuel prices were so high.
I discovered that the Prime Minister and TV media bureaucrats had blatantly lied to the public, when they blamed trade sanctions on Russia for the soaring price of fuel. I noted that within the last 20 years most of Australia’s fuel refineries had been put out of business in favour of foreign imports, which the nation now relies on for a continued supply of petrol and diesel.
I explained that this dependency on foreign imports meant Australia was at the mercy of international market manipulation, and could be held to ransom and forced to pay too much for fuel.
Subsequently, journalist Eliza Bavin publishes this article, more or less reiterates my original message but investigates nothing and provides no further information to the public.
I would think somebody being paid for journalism would want to answer questions such as:
>Who is responsible for boycotting and bankrupting our own National fuel production industry? Why wasn’t this seen as a national security threat when it began happening 20 years ago?
>How in a single generation could Australia go from producing most of its own fuel to relying almost entirely on foreign imports?
>How could politicians have allowed this to happen? Which ministers should be held accountable?
Another great betrayal of the Australian worker is being treated here as just another “cause for concern” but as usual, journalists and investigators lack the spine to identify those responsible. They don’t like “punching up” for fear of that enormous corporate boot above their heads.
