Unfortunately its not just only Holden's were loosing, farming, fruit growers, dairy's, other producers, manufacturers etc are either being under cut or owned by overseas conglomerates.
Our governments embarked on deregulation and globalization and so called free trade but how to you compete with 3rd world, corrupt governments and dictatorships who treat their people like shit. We have to follow health standards, trade skills, minimum wages etc that puts a huge price on our products and labour where they grow their products in human shit and banned chemicals with no or little concern for the health or welfare.
We have opened the flood gates on cheap imported crap and now were are paying for it by the Aussie middle man who jacks the prices up to make money of us.

I always try to choose the aussie made product, regardless of what people say about aussie products [ ie shit, too dear etc] since the japan earthquake the yanks realised how much stuff they DONT make anymore, hopefully they'll pull their thumb out their ass an start making stuff for themselves again, so then WE can follow suit

The problem in Oz is:

There's no work, so there's no money, so no one cal sell anything, so they lower wages, which means no one can buy anything - thus forming a vicious circle.

/Straya's fucked.
We need to turn into a self sufficient country.
Not an outsourcing one.

It may be "cheaper" - but the government's plan to have a sustainable 25 mil pop. is never gonna happen because no one will have money because there is no jobs.

We need LEADERS in parliament, not FUCKWITS.

exactly the same as the AU falcon XR front did...thought the sedans looked stupid...but utes & wagons it played well
