DRACONIAN LAWS… DESTROYING OUR LIVELIHOODS’: FARMERS PROSECUTED UNDER REPEALED LAWS- 22/05/2019

Farmers are facing bankruptcy after continuing to be prosecuted under old land clearing laws that have been revoked. The Native Vegetation Act was repealed in 2017 to introduce fairer legislation, but farmers are still being prosecuted under the old law, facing fines of up to $500,000. Farmers must acquire a permit to cut down bush on their own land, but for every hectare of land cleared farmers are forbidden from touching four hectares of their own land.

They face fines of up to $13,000 a day if they refuse to answer questions from the Office of Environment and Heritage.

'ONE-IN-FOUR CHANCE OF RECESSION' AFTER WORST RESULT IN 10 YEARS  -5/6/19

The Morrison government is pinning its hopes on passing $158 billion in income tax cuts and accelerating community infrastructure to stimulate an economy that has recorded one of its worst results in a decade. The economy grew by 1.8 per cent over the past year, its weakest performance since September 2009 and the poorest result since the global financial crisis.

Web Administrators comment- Typical of the Government in power, handball the problem onto future governments. How does this measure ensure that retirees can live when we have been told there will be no age pensions in the future? Unbelievably stupid!
