Farmers who fail never deserve shame
If you hate farmers, be sure to give generously to the Farmhand appeal. If you want the drought issue to obtain even worse, applaud the politicians while they hand out more taxpayers’ money to drought-stricken cockies. And when you intend to see our farmers continuing to stuff the Wide Brown Land up – and then demanding which you and I pay to clean up the mess – nod wisely when ignorant loudmouths spout about “drought-pr fing” Australia.
If you thought the notion of farmers and their governmental toadies wanting to “capitalise the gains, but socialise the losses” was a subject put to rest, wake up. It is occurring now.
It got small publicity in the metropolitan areas but, simply final monetary 12 months, 2001-02, Australian farmers had their many lucrative year in yonks. From a average that is recent of5.1 billion per year, farm earnings nearly doubled to $9.8 billion.
The latest estimate is that, this year, income will slump to $3.7 billion.
