Gladys Liu disaster turns “daggy dad” into “Liar from the Shire”

Liugate rolls on today without the slightest interruption. Indeed, there are signs that it is getting worse. The protection racket around PM Morrison run by The Australian is fraying. First, from Strewth:

Another day, another Gladys Liu fundraiser across Strewth’s desk. The latest is “an exclusive cocktail event” presented by the Pinnacle Club (a fundraising arm of the Liberal Party) and hosted by Liberal member for La Trobe Jason Wood — the Assistant Minister for Customs, Community Safety and Multicultural Affairs…

At 8.30pm, Liu is billed to host a live auction of “exclusive prizes and experiences”, although the email notes “items are strictly only available on the night”.

Curiously, the Pinnacle Club lists Wood’s office address, telephone number and email on its financial disclosure returns to the Australian Electoral Commission. Which could make him in breach of ministerial standards. Liu’s and Wood’s offices didn’t answer our questions but the online booking form was taken down on Wednesday afternoon.

Jury’s out on whether it will go ahead. If not, it will be the third upcoming public appearance the member for Chisholm has cancelled in the past week, including a Sydney Institute speech called “How the Coalition won Chisholm” and an $80-a-head fundraiser in her taxpayer-funded electorate office.

Then Niki Savva sank the boot deep into Shanghai Scott’s groin:

Serious questions of substance remain in relation to Liu’s connections and donations, and troubling questions relating to truthfulness have begun to permeate the carefully constructed Scott Morrison daggy dad persona. Perceptions of politicians can tip from calculating or cunning to deceitful overnight and Morrison needs to watch out.

…Liu remains in witness protection. If she cannot be trusted to make a statement to parliament or hold a press conference and submit to questions, then the Liberal Party better start refunding part of her salary to the taxpayers.

They can draw on the more than $1m Liu has claimed to have raised for the party. Or they might begin to think about a replacement candidate.

There are MPs who can spend decades in parliament, rarely make a speech, hardly if ever front the media and nobody notices or cares. Liu will not be one.

…One of the most often cited examples of security concerns used against Liu is Malcolm Turnbull’s withdrawal from an event Liu had helped organise…As a precaution the list was handed to the prime minister’s national security adviser, Justin Bassi, for checking. The advice that came back was he should not to go, so Turnbull didn’t.

Sava is a Turnbull supporter so there’s some sour grapes here but her revelations are evidence of serious LNP divisions around Liu, not to mention growing doubts about Shanghai Scott’s judgement.

So, how long can Ms Liu be kept in cotton wool? And how long can Shanghai Scott wear the opprobrium? If Chinese community leaders have anything to do with it then not long. Via Chinese-Australian advocate, Jieh-Yung Lo, at the ABC:

While Gladys Liu and I share very little in common (apart from our Chaozhou ancestry and the fact we both can speak Cantonese and Mandarin), her achievement as the first Chinese-Australian female federal MP was a source of pride — especially for a community that has so little representation and leadership in Australian politics.

The “bamboo ceiling” inhibiting membership of our Parliaments, like other key institutions, is thick and tough. But Ms Liu’s election as the federal member for Chisholm did in fact represent a small breakthrough.

It should have inspired and motivated current and future generations of Chinese-Australians and Asian-Australians to find their voice, step up and pursue a career in politics.

It provided a breath of fresh air and symbolic reassurance that we are indeed a part of this country and our participation in Australian democracy is welcomed.

We are collateral damage

The debate over foreign influence and interference, exposure of political donations from questionable sources and the subsequent eroding of Australia’s bilateral relations hip with China, have placed an enormous strain on the reputation of Chinese-Australians.

We feel that as a community we are becoming collateral damage. And that trend has accelerated dramatically with the recent claims and counter-claims about the new federal member for Chisholm.

Since the claims surrounding Ms Liu’s association with Chinese community organisations with alleged links to the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) United Front Work Department were made public, I have witnessed a seriously increased sense of nervousness, unease and division among some within the Chinese-Australian community.

This extremely complicated issue, intertwining geopolitical tensions with domestic politics, has left some members of my community feeling as if they have been caught in the crossfire. Many believe it will get worse.

There is outright anger for being bundled together in generalisations based on race, culture and ethnicity. There is frustration at the rise of a new form of Sinophobia with another Australian of Chinese descent in public life having his or her loyalty, commitment and allegiance to Australia questioned.

There is also some disappointment in Ms Liu’s response to the allegations and a belief it is not adequate and did not meet community expectations.

These diverse perspectives demonstrate why we need to always recognise the diversity within Chinese-Australians and why it is never appropriate to paint and taint us with the same brush.

Liu’s explanation didn’t stack up

Many question whether she has the skills to be an effective parliamentarian and make a contribution on behalf of her constituents and community.

Having initially said she “cannot recall” being a member of either group, Ms Liu later confirmed she held an honorary role with Guangdong Overseas Exchange Association in 2011 but no longer had any association with the organisation.

The concerns around skills and competence are important, especially for a community that strongly believes in merit.

For Ms Liu, we have yet to witness much beyond political fundraising and campaigning abilities.

Her interview with Andrew Bolt highlighted her inability to dissect the issues and challenges facing Australia.

This is of concern because the longer the precise history of her involvement remains unclear, the easier it becomes for Chinese-Australians to be misrepresented.

We need to conquer stereotypes

If we are serious about increasing the participation of Chinese-Australians and Asian-Australians in our democratic institutions, we need to erase the stereotype portraying us as little more than political fundraisers and numbers-builders.

It is a stereotype that has been exacerbated by representatives like Ms Liu and former NSW Labor MP Ernest Wong.

Within Chinese-Australian circles in Victoria, Ms Liu is a well-known fundraiser — able to quickly bring in VIP guests to Liberal Party events where thousands of dollars are raised to assist various Liberal Party campaigns.

But dollars are not the only numbers Ms Liu can bring to the table.

She has also shown the ability to recruit hundreds of volunteers from the Chinese-Australian community to fill polling booths.

These skills enabled her to develop her political capital, leading eventually to her successful preselection for a marginal seat.

Thanks to political operatives like Ms Liu, Chinese-Australians and to a certain extent other Asian-Australian communities, are seen by some politicians and political parties as little more than cash cows — walking ATMs whose only real contribution is to provide donations at lavish dinners.

It’s not racist to ask questions of Liu

Ms Liu’s continued approach in refusing to offer a full and transparent public explanation to the allegations against her threatens to undermine the outcomes I and many others are striving to work towards.

It is hard to argue for greater cultural diversity of representation and leadership in our institutions when those already occupying these positions, such as Ms Liu, fail to show leadership and transparency by not immediately declaring membership of the Chinese community organisations in question and donations made to the Liberal Party of Victoria.

Representation is important but it must not be tokenistic: those breaking through the bamboo ceiling must have the skills and competences that make them standard bearers for others.

I argued during this year’s Federal Election that, regardless of who was going to win the seat of Chisholm between Labor’s Jennifer Yang and Gladys Liu, there would be big expectations from Chinese-Australians.

We expect Ms Liu to speak up on our behalf, represent her constituents, make a contribution to the big policy issues facing Australia and be accountable for her actions and opinions.

From what I and many in the Chinese-Australian community have seen so far, we could be waiting for a long time.

At this rate, Liu will be tendering a very public resignation shortly which, according to new footage from Andrew Bolt, will upset the CCP no end. He produced startling recordings from Chinese propaganda TV offering full CCP endorsement of Gladys Liu during her election campaigns:

The law is on the move as well as Liu’s dodgy election tactics are exposed, also at The Australian:

The High Court, sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns, referred the matter to the Federal Court on Wednesday.

Justice Michelle Gordon outlined four key questions at the heart of the dispute — that the conduct was “illegal”; that it occurred with the knowledge or authorisation of the two candidates; that it was likely to have affected the results in each seat and that it would be just for a declaration of invalidity to be made.

Ms Liu won the seat of Chisholm by just 1100 votes.

Justice Gordon said given the evidence needed, especially to establish the key issue of knowledge or authorisation, it was best to refer the case to the Federal Court for trial.

The judge, sitting in Melbourne, was critical of the lack of response provided by the Treasurer and Ms Liu to date, which she said was “unsatisfactory”.

That drags the Treasurer into the muck as well.

Honestly, I can’t remember a Government more at odds so fast with the principles that got it elected.  My read on Scott Morrison’s “quiet Australians” is that they hate the constrictions of political correctness, are economic nationalists, fear open borders and celebrate Aussie values.

Liugate singularly contradicts it all. “Quiet Australians” that thought they were electing the “daggy dad” instead got the “liar from the Shire” courting treason for political gain.

This is not a few breezy statements easily swept aside in the political gales. It’s the visceral betrayal of everything Scott Morrison claims to be.

    • The Horrible Scott Morrison MP

      Only incel lefty racists complain about this stuff. The LNP is the only party helping diverse aspiring politicians break through the bamboo ceiling.

      • Morrison ducks and weaves with the best of them. He has in all aspects of his life – from working with Tourism Australia then promoting tourism to New Zealand. He supported Abbott, then he didn’t. He supported Turnbull, then he didn’t. Rumbling in the ranks indicate that his supporters were very active in undoing both his predecessors, but no apparent blood on Scotty’s hands.

        He says he cried about refugee deaths but was the worse Immigration Minister and hid behind “on-water” non statements. He projects himself as a staunch long term follower of the rugby league team the Sharks and his suburb in the Shire. He was a long term rugby union fan and player but changed to league. He grew up in eastern suburbs Bronte and only left there in 2009. He seems intent of developing an everyman persona. What does he believe in or stand for? – other than himself and his on-going game of self promotion. ‘You can’t pin anything on me” Morrison as evidenced by his recent attempt by lying about his Shanghai Sam comments.

        Day by day the apt Liar from the Shire increases in currency.

  1. This is terrible stuff for normal Chinese Australians but the blame must lie with Xi Jinping and the CCP. They are the ones systematically utilising the Chinese diaspora as a tool for advancing the great rejuvination of the Chinese people.

    • mate not sure what you are going about. China, like everyone else around the world is engaged in espionage. Did you forget that we hacked the phones of the Indonesian PM and his wife. What about East Timor?
      The problem is that our politicians are cheap to buy and our voters become so obsessed with their greed don’t don’t really care. Just accept that we are a small minority that can’t change anything.
      And I hope I am wrong on this one but is Scumo calls new elections today he will win again.

        • because we don’t have the resources otherwise we would have done it. If we went to the extent to tap the phones on foreign leaders means we are playing dirty within our means.

          • @Nikola the Chinese are colonising the country via the overseas student visa program so as to undermine US Hegemony in the Pacific Ocean. Unlike the “baizous” in the West, the Chinese understand liberal democracy in a multi-cultural society is nothing more than a racial head count.

          • “No. Australia is not a lenninist marxist state.”

            We may not be that, but we have elements that are just a tyrannical.

      • “mate not sure what you are going about. China, like everyone else around the world is engaged in espionage. Did you forget that we hacked the phones of the Indonesian PM and his wife”

        OK ?!?!… and when we got caught, it was our fault right?

      • There’s a different between espionage for the sake of defence, versus espionage for the sake of expansion.

      • ErmingtonPlumbingMEMBER

        There was never any chance of Australia espionage resulting in the destruction and replacement of Indonesian Culture though.
        Your analogy is a poor one.

        • There’s no chance of Chinese espionage “resulting in the destruction and replacement” Australian culture either.

            For sure western Corporate Plutocracy has been doing a good job of eroding that as you say Smithy.
            But the Chinese Plutocratic equivalent, with 1400 million ethno nationalists behind them is going to make British and American imperialism look weak and pathetic, by comparison, with its childish “Democratic Accountabilitity”
            The return of Global Aristocracy and abject Serfdom, for everyone, is going to be driven so much more effectively by their Authoritarian regime.

          • The return of Global Aristocracy and abject Serfdom, for everyone, is going to be driven so much more effectively by their Authoritarian regime.

            Only in that it will be used as an excuse by our Governments.

            Watch this current mountain-out-of-a-molehill kerfuffle about Liu to be leveraged to constrain democratic processes over the next few years, probably by restricting who can stand for election in some way.

    • It cost the Chinese government 750 million to switch a vote in the South Pacific, but a few hundred K can gives you control of the Australian government. It would be stupid for Xi not to use it!!

    • SnappedUpSavvyMEMBER

      yes, when Xi decided to weaponise the people and businesses of china he pretty much shot the golden goose

  2. I am sorry but when are you going to realise that the Quiet Australians elected the party that promised value of their homes will stay up and that somehow there will be no bill to pay. Nothing more and nothing less. Not one of those who voted for this frkr care who/what/why/how as long as their houses (50km from CBD) are more expensive than Paris CBD.
    Scumo knows this and that is why he does give a flying frk about what rest of us think or feel.
    Yes, I agree with all you say but it will not make a difference. We won’t see people hitting the streets to bring these traitors down.

    • John Howards Bowling Coach

      Nikola the truth of what you say is so correct it almost stings. I saw a video clip of Gladys Liu on her campaign address a group of recent migrants in the electorate and her sole message to them was vote for me, as the LNP don’t want you to pay tax, so you will get more money, money, money. A very easy message to sell to a soulless greedy society (Australia).

      We as a society have become a lot worse than we want to admit/accept.

    • ’bout says it all
      these greedy Aussie F’ers need to know hardship worse than the Great depression…much worse
      At this stage It’s the only cure !
      I must admit that 10 years ago I was hopeful that we would find direction despite house prices but our latest decision to double down on stupidity, well that’s just …um …ah Insane

      • Agree
        “Straya” is a landmass populated with greedy self seeking tribal self – interested groups. Not a nation with any sense of purpose and direction. Very sad.

    • Jumping jack flash

      “Not one of those who voted for this frkr care who/what/why/how as long as their houses (50km from CBD) are more expensive than Paris CBD”


      And when you’re on the hook for as many debt dollars as one of those things cost, you wouldn’t want the price to go down either. Imagine for a minute if it did!

      Never mind the poor suckers tasked with repaying all the debt and interest – the banks, up to their ears in mortgages, would start calling for heads to roll if that ever happened.

      And when the banks get involved, heads start rolling.

    • Werribee is nuts. It seems the Indian hotspot for sure. No idea why? Perhaps cheaper housing drove them that way?

      • We actually avoided Werribee like the plague while house hunting (Did I mention that we don’t have a mortgage 😁..👋 scummy banks). Didn’t want to get spiked by needles discarded on the road. 😬

        • I knew a Greek family living out Werribee way about 16 years back now. I remember it being mostly paddocks. I haven’t been back there in a while. But I know many Indians who have been buying out that way and Point Cook.

          I know that Melton is also rough with drugs etc.. but I didn’t know Werribee was like that also?

          • Werribee South (its south of the highway) is still paddocks – growing Kale, lettuce etc etc. There is even a nice boat ramp down there.. I love going there in the summer for a nice walk along the “beach”.. basically a shallow bay where the river meets the sea.

            I think Indians buy mostly in other suburbs around Werribee. Werribee itself is just an old built up area with the old town centre. Not a lot happening there after the Pacific Werribee shopping centre got redeveloped. Contrary to the stereotype, from observation, I see more white faces there than Indians. I bought my house in Tarneit from a guy with an Italian surname and my neighbour is a nice guy named Max.

    • Was the 7.30 report about Indian migration a way for ABC to signal that they recognise there is an issue of non-assimilation and integration of recent migrants from the subcontinent (moving to areas with established subcontinental communities, as told by the migrants and real estate agents), plus recognition that recent mass immigration is just a ponzi, with the demographer saying their just isn’t the jobs there for migrants compared to previously generations?

      Plus there was recognition (by the new ABC demographer) that infrastructure is not keeping up and this is causing isolation for the new migrants.

      Not a great outcome really for migrants or legacy residents.

        Yet a Ukrainian family running a restaurant is deported:

        What is so value add about running a pizza shop that steals wages? Or have the pizza shopkeepers corrupted the immigration department again:

  3. What ScoMo have learnt about the ‘quiet Australians’ is that they’ll vote LNP regardless. ScoMo can sell their children’s future to the CCP, but the parent would still vote LNP. They are people living in denial fantasizing about a Coalition government that doesn’t exists.

      Bullsh1t! Maybe to scum xenophobic racialists like you and the lot on here but I have literally loved a lot of them!

    • did your chinese friends vote for her or would of voted for her if they were in that electorate? I would assume your chinese friends are anti-ccp so would be curious to know if those that are vote for any Chinese representatives or will hesitate to in case that representative has ties to the ccp. after this i would think they would start doing the latter if they weren’t already previously doing.

      • Forrest GumpMEMBER

        Most of them (those that are’nt brainwashed) and have a brain are anti CCP and anti LNP
        None live in Gladys’ electorate
        Friends living in Mainland China are mostly brainwashed and are Pro CCP
        Friends living in HK and Taiwan are anti CCP

        • ah ok so they probably wouldn’t have voted gladys as she was LNP, if there was a chinese Labour candidate do you think they would research to see if they are possibly tied to any ccp government? im just curious how switched on the anti-ccp chinese are and can identify ccp-linked efforts to avoid accidentally/indirectly supporting them since the last thing they want is the ccp having reach here. thanks for the insights btw

          • Forrest GumpMEMBER

            Somewhat true.
            From my observation: Some retain their cultural ideals that (Chinese) corruption is just a part of life and its considered normal to engaged in the activity that Liu has done. More so, most comment that she is engaging in typical (corrupt/dodgy)Chinese behavior.

            Those that are more switched on to the consequences and the bigger picture won’t vote for another Chinese person on the basis that (as noted above) its likely they are on the take

          • @Forrest Gump
            I forgot about them viewing corruption as a normalcy, its such an interesting but also scary concept. Sadly our current politics has not been a shining example as to what most of australia is like and we do not tolerate corruption. Thanks for the info, its unfortunate that even if they wanted to tell us or warn us of the ccp they can’t because of how risky it is after they have finally ‘escaped’.

    • John Howards Bowling Coach

      My better half is Chinese and she and her clients (all new arrival Mainland Chinese) all tell me they never want to see any Chinese in a position of political power in Australia, they said they moved here to get away from what happens when Chinese have political power.

      • I was actually wondering if this was the case? I really don’t want this country to end up like China…that would be the worst case scenario for me.

      • Slightly different take from me is that Chinese culture itself leads to the kind of behaviour you see when they are in power. Zero care for community. Extreme (by our standards) care for the family. Without extreme coercion society just doesn’t function beyond the apartment door. It’s all power stuff. And with that of course comes corruption. I think that many MLC (and even HKers) support the CCP because they fear break down in law and order if true freedom were permitted. I’m not sure they’re wrong. I can’t think of a liberal government in any place run by Chinese. Singapore is the closest. HK had a kind of freedom hangover, now being crushed.

  5. With the political breeding grounds of our universities now completely dominated by aspiring Chinese politicians, this finger in the dyke attempt to prevent the subversion of our democracy by Chinese interests is futile.

  6. On the topic, it looks most likely that the leak about ASIO screening the guest list came from Turnbull. If so, good on him – he has finally done something useful for the country.

      • Much too late.

        All his money and all his future actions will not be enough to buy redemption.

        He sold out for power. Exchanging a walk on part in the warnfor a lead role in a cage. Glad he got rolled.

      Tik Tok, journo’s, I’m sure Malcolm is waiting for your call.

  7. Labor, after the fiasco of their Chinese Grannies policy at the May election, is not in much position to criticise.

  8. John Howards Bowling Coach

    I think that a lot of minorities in Australia feel they are not represented in the Media, and Politics. However I don’t think the figures hod up that feeling. For example the absolute percentage of Lebanese Australians has been well exceeded by the number of Lebanese Australians in the NSW parliament. In the seat of Chisholm that was won in a race of 2 ethnic Chinese candidates, there are a LOT of Chinese, but they are only 20% of the electorate, so being the electorate is 80% non Chinese, having a Chinese member in parliament is not at all representative of the electorate.

    Given Chinese Australian’s (a fair stretch to call most of them Australian at all as if you ask them ‘what are you?’ the vast majority would say they are Chinese without hesitation, they have no loyalty or alignment to Australia in reality, in their heart they will always be Chinese, even generations later) are only around 5% of the population of this nation, we should not really expect to see any of them in parliament or the media, certainly not the percentage we see on the screen at the ABC and SBS who in their drive to be world class virtue signalling unrepresentative bubbles, night after night broadcast the dribbling thoughts of many talking heads who don’t actually represent Australian society, rather just a tiny number of migrants who demand more than their share and contribute much less then they take from Australian society while simultaneously abandoning their own societies back home purely for their own personal benefit of the enhanced lifestyle offered in Australia.

    If Gladys Liu really wants to make a change for the good of society in public office, she could try doing that in Hong Kong.

    • Too big a word for you? Did you have to look it up in the dictionary? You know youse can always throw a few fckens and cvnts around in the comment section to counteract big scary words, don’t you? 😘

  9. Stewie GriffinMEMBER

    Sino reporter Jieh-Yung Lo hit the Multicultural nail on the head with this one:

    While Gladys Liu and I share very little in common (apart from our Chaozhou ancestry and the fact we both can speak Cantonese and Mandarin), her achievement as the first Chinese-Australian female federal MP was a source of pride — especially for a community that has so little representation and leadership in Australian politics.

    The ONLY fair way that this can be rectified is by installing ethnic Quotas into our Democratic system – from the lips of the yellow peril herself, the Chinese who are residing here in the EZFKA aren’t Australian, they’re Chinese for God’s sake.

    In the Multicultural economic zone formally known as Australia it is the right of each Community to have direct community cultural representation in our Parliament ==> there are no Australians now , as Jieh-Yung indirectly points out with her emphise on the Chinese Communities representation, in Multicultural Australia our diverse communities can’t be guarranteed of fair representation of their interests by fellow Australians BECAUSE THEY AREN’T FELLOW AUSTRALIANS, they’re just residents in the EZFKA.

    But why stop there – the Lebanese community should be allowed to have proportional representation. Same with the Sudanese and god forbid if we leave out the Indians.

    This is Australia’s future – an Ethnocracy…. it is the only fair way. Where each ethnic community can elect members from its own community within our economic zone, to the Australian parliament, except of course stupid white colonial Australians who still misguidely (and racystly) believe they are living in THEIR own nation as a Democracy.

    This is our destiny in Multicultural Australia – this is who we are and who we are becoming.

    Own it.

    • John Howards Bowling Coach

      Yes, BUT. Have a look at the last census, then spread the number from the census across the electorates and you see that we do in many & most cases have a some degree of representation in the parliament because despite the appearance on the street in Box Hill in the electorate of Chisholm for example that the whole place is Chinese, the Census stats show they are only 20% of the electorate and about 5% of the nation, i.e. very few. So you’d not expect to see many ethnic Chinese in parliament would you?

      The ABC and SBS don’t want you to know it, but we are still vastly a nation of European Heritage even in 2019. Funnily enough, we don’t see too many Indian’s queued up to migrate to Sri Lanka, or Chinese to Taiwan (actually scrap that, everyone wants to escape China no matter where they get to). The reality is everyone wants to live in a Western Society despite their racist remarks about Western Societies while they are in the waiting room for their Medicare funded doctor’s visit…

      • Stewie GriffinMEMBER

        Of course SBS and ABC don’t want Australians to think we are still 85% white, it would make it harder for them to push the Multicultural objective if we suddenly woke up and said, “Hey, we’re not MC yet – it’s not too late.”

        But this deliberate propaganda isn’t limited to the Govt channels – just take a look at the advertising on the commercial channels nearly every second advertisement nowadays features a mixed race couple (usually a black dued with a white wife, or some white guy with a smol Asian chick…. weirdly they never show a Muslim chick in a burka married to some tattooed Aussie Bogon or Pacific Islander – I guess some mix and matches are just too hard to believe) despite the fact that as a percentage of the population such couples are a tiny, tiny fraction of the overall population – the thing is, it is important to twist the narrative far away from reality so that there will be less resistance to the genocidal path that “they’ve” chosen to push predominantly white nations down.

        Not that there is anything wrong with mixed race couples, perhaps it should be encouraged so that there are more people with more exotic genetic ancestry to help match bi-racials with organ doners:

        But yup agree with everything you said – if you come into Sydney CBD and walk you could be forgiven for mistaking you were in Hyderabad India as all the Indians from Parrammata and elsewhere in Sydney pour into the CBD for the jobs that they’ve taken from young Australians.

        Of course you can hardly blame those people who work at SBS or ABC for believing this – most people mistake their immediate perception for reality and when you mainly live in the inner city suburbs, like most of the progressive twats who work at SBS or the ABC, they get on the train at the last few stops see all the diversity and mistake it for being reality.

        • Or adverts with ethnically ambiguous peoples – preferably still light-skinned so they appeal to the growing sub-continental market that have a preference for the light skinned – but they could also pass as part Islander, Maori, maybe Filo, maybe Middle-Eastern.

    What can we add to that now?

    Australia has an ally in Washington, a friend in Beijing and a buyers market in politics?

  12. Liu “broke through the bamboo ceiling”? Labor’s candidate for the election was also a Chinese Australian – Jennifer Yang. Also Chisholm includes Box Hill. -A suburb where the population is almost entirely Chinese. I don’t think she broke through much.

  13. Can you just let us know when the CCP has a majority in Parliament (ie irrespective of which Aussie party they aligned with )
