Children-devouring property parasites: Labor is racist

There is nothing more satisfying than observing a dodgy realtor get upset that his/her dodgy trade with dodgy foreign money launderers is being shut down:

Labor leader Bill Shorten’s pledge to double the fees and penalties imposed on foreign property buyers and tax vacant properties drew a strong reaction for singling out Chinese investors.

“This is a lot of dog whistling, don’t listen to it,” said property lawyer John Grimble, a partner at Dentons Australia.

“We would never say that foreign investment was the biggest cause of the house price explosion, but it is a factor,” Mr Shorten told reporters after announcing the plans on Friday.

“It’s all politics and it’s discrimination,” said Monika Tu, the founder of real estate agency Black Diamondz.

“Permanent residents, foreign buyers, they travel, they have international business. A lot of my clients in London have empty homes, and those countries don’t try and kick them out and force them to live elsewhere”.

They have somewhere else to go then.

I couldn’t give a stuff where Monika or her buyers are from. Indeed, to prove my even-handedness, I’ll confess an equal contempt for John Grimble!

What I do care about is that many foreigners are buying illegally, helping price out Australian kids (the majority of whom are immigrants or descended immediately from them for crying out loud).

If there is anyone making this a race issue, it is these children-devouring property parasites.

  1. Hong Kong, Singapore ,Vancouver has 15% stamp duty on Foreign purchaser ….Australia still far behind…

  2. I can’t wait for one of these third party enablers to get prosecuted and fined for assisting an illegal sale to a foreigner.
    C’mon ATO, charge one of these parasites and send them a strong message.

  3. “Permanent residents, foreign buyers, they travel, they have international business. A lot of my clients in London have empty homes, and those countries don’t try and kick them out and force them to live elsewhere”.

    Goddamn, there really is no artful way to say it but to fuck right off if you don’t like it. When was the last time an Australian was allowed to move into the chinese market without marrying a Han?

    Today’s magic word is R-E-C-I-P-R-O-C-I-T-Y.

  4. Funny thing is it’s the leftist millenials that would approach this topic very softly so as to not appear to be like literally Hitler. Even though they are the main cause, because they mostly buy at the top, and give the confidence to local investors all the way down to friggen Bonnie Doon and all the way out to Penrith.

    did OJ mention a while back that some high profile real estate agent was currently under close investigation ?……..one wonders who it might be ?…….I’m sure there are a few high profile ones specialising in international clients that could be worth looking at to ensure that our laws are not being flaunted ……or are the laws only for the lower class of citazen ? …….mind you to be fair the law did eventually catch up with Eddie Obeid and Ian McDonald ( with a little political wind behind it ) …..so perhaps its grinding its way towards some real estate agents ….we live in hope ……..

  6. The most appalling part of this story is that someone would name a company ‘Black Diamondz’. Shittest business name in history.

  7. As an art critic I have to say the guy in the first picture hasn’t got a clue. If he swings his sword from that angle he’s going to hit the concrete or take half his own foot off..
    Amateurs… He should be in politics…

      ….which is why some time much later they invented the cavalry Sword …..that brilliant curved blade ….that could do so much damage with a slash ……the precursor of the angle grinder ………….beauty in design ……..

  8. You should see what Monika is bragging about on LinkedIn… $100,000,000 in sales in a month, 19 properties in 17 days…
