What do you mean, how is the government allowing this to happen or the politicians have said nothing? The government is encouraging it! Only this week, Gillard told the Chinese on her trip to China that Australia is open to foreign investment and that 380 investment applications from China have been approved during her term as prime minister. Something she is very proud of. This sort of caper is just running our country down hill. We need to preserve the very few assets and industry we have left in Australia. A lot of what people think is Australian is foreign owned.

The Australian government needs to put a ban on foreign investment in Australian land. Does China allow Aussies to buy productive agricultural land in China? Australia needs to retain ownership of our land. We've just about lost manufacturing and mining. We can't afford to lose agriculture too.
