    Great.
    Another thread to fill up with Cuba, doctrine and Scotch- soaked lies.

    I reserve this open thread for the sober.
    If you want to get drunk and post stupid lies, go to the most recent I am sparticus thread.

  4. Arky

    Spartacus, I mean.

    Also I declare this thread a spelling and grammar free zone.

    Ad absurdum:

    If transgender people can have publicly funded surgery to correct their dysphoria, why not transable people?

    RTWT

    Meanwhile, at least one endocrinologist has stated that supplying hormone blockers to children with alleged gender dysphoria is not only medically unethical, it is child abuse, because children cannot properly assent to treatment that may have severe repercussions down the track.

    Question: Trump is setting up China trade as an election issue. True or false?
    A recession must come in the next year or so. Many on the left are cheering on the possibility as a sure thing to get rid of Trump.
    I don’t think it will help them at all.

    From the old feed:

    ‘If anyone thinks for a second this isn’t completely government funded, think again.’

    Struth

    In FY 2017-18 the Indigenous Wellness Centre received $3,479,990 in Federal Government grants .

    It received $3,940,330 in State Government grants

    $3,688,959 of its revenue was ‘self generated’

    So while IWC not completely ‘government funded’, it is very heavy underwritten by the taxpayer.

    Vietnam & Sri Lanka just ratified their extradition laws with China.
    I would expect that would be expected as part of any deal with PNG.
    Before going overseas in the future, one will have to check to see which countries your destinations & stopovers have extradition treaties with.

    Make that 41 out of the 58 considering the Vietnam & Sri Lanka news.

    Fun fact, Germany & France both have ratified their extradition treaties with China.

  20. Beertruk

    Zulu,
    I posted this late last night on the old Fred:
    I found an old training pam (not Commando or Battle comics) I must have signed out on a sub 1 course but never returned ‘Manual of Land Warfare Part Two Infantry Training Volume 4 Pamphet 5 on th SLR L1A1 and L1A2.’ Chapter 2-27 has a pic: Plate 1-14 Filling a magazine using a magazine filler.’ If I could scan it and post it I would.

  21. calli

    A great many of those idiot companies have crossovers with Jones’ audience.

    They can only be doing themselves harm.

  22. Mother Lode

    Regarding the new changes to the fitness tests in Vicplod, they will be replacing the Flying Squad with the Frying Squad.

    They will be known by local villains and likely lads as The Batters – rhyming slang based on ‘Battered Cod’ (squad).

    There is zero chance Winston Peters will let Horseface across the Ditch even introduce that extradition treaty bill to parliament.

    I had a cursory look at the Axios article about Trump suggesting nuclear devices be used to stop hurricanes – was the story actually attributed to anyone with a name?

  27. struth

    $3,688,959 of its revenue was ‘self generated’

    You’ll find that amount was government customers.

    Aboriginal councils and other tax payer funded parasites forking out tax payer money.

    There’s nothing private sector about these orgs unless mining companies and the like are being extorted.

    Any Vic Cats who own a Rem 7615 pump better start buying poly-pipe:

    APPEARANCE LAWS have raised their ugly head again, this time in Victoria.

    VicPol is about to reclassify the popular Remington 7615, which is a pump action rifle, to category D – putting it in the same category as AR15s.

    The rifle, which sources day is a ‘good seller’, is widely used for foxes, goats and used in some IPSC competitions.

    The reason for the reclassification is that the rifle can be customised to different configurations, and take an AR mag. Yet, at the end of the day, it is simply a pump action 223.

    Bit by bit …

    From the OOT:

    You avoided those questions because were the crux of the matter. You answer some now because I called you to account.

    Not at all. You’re now avoiding my answers, the earlier and the latter, because they effectively counter your assertions.

    How you intended to use the word is shifting the goal posts. The meaning is unclear, that is obvious.

    Firstly, I said nothing about my usage being peculiar, it isn’t, I said it was neither tendentious nor pejorative. Secondly, you haven’t actually demonstrated any ‘shifting goalposts’ beyond asserting that the term ‘worldview’ being ambiguous.

    I was discussing science. You invoked atomist. Christians are just a subset of religious people. “Atomist” has nothing to do with the discussion, it is a diversion that attempted to drive me down one of your rabbit holes. You tried a rhetorical trick that failed.

    Atomists are a subset of scientists just as Christians are a subset of religious people. That should have been obvious, but given the comparison was effective, and you stubbornly want to continue asserting what you are, you’re now pretending that the comparison I employed was a ‘diversion’. The irony, given the subject of discussion, does not go unnoticed.

  38. Mother Lode

    Their second source was a Mr Sexual.

    A very sad case.

    Footage from camera outside Epstein’s cell deemed unusable

    At least one camera in the hallway outside the cell where authorities say registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein hanged himself earlier this month had footage that is unusable, although other, clearer footage was captured in the area, according to three people briefed on the evidence gathered earlier this month.

    It was not immediately clear why some video footage outside Epstein’s cell is too flawed for investigators to use or what is visible in the other, usable footage. The incident is being investigated by the FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which are attempting to determine what happened and how to assess whether any policies were violated or crimes committed.

    The footage is considered critical to those inquiries, and the revelation of an unusable recording is yet another of the apparent failures inside the Metropolitan Correctional Center, the short-staffed Bureau of Prisons facility in downtown Manhattan that held Epstein.

    It’s unclear whether the flaw in the taping affected a limited duration of the footage or whether it was a chronic problem in the beleaguered facility.

    Anyone going to jail for this level of fuckup yet?

  41. Mother Lode

    I mention the hurricane thing because the BBC feed is bringing up a headline saying that the head of the NOAA has stated that nuclear detonations would be useless against hurricanes -seeming to bestow legitimacy on the original claim that Trump had even suggested it.

    I wonder if they are still paying their subscription to the Gorilla Channel?

  43. Leo G

    Cassie asked for the list of the businesses who have withdrawn from Jones on account of him telling that buck-toothed bint from new zealandistan to get stuffed so I’ll put it up again just in case:

    Those businesses are not just boycotting the Alan Jones program, but all advertising on Radio 2GB. Aren’t such secondary boycotts prohibited by the Competition and Consumer Act?
    The NSW Law Society’s president Doug Humphreys announced yesterday that it had “pulled all advertising from 2GB, effective immediately”, explaining with the non sequitur: “the Society did not want its advertising drawn into controversy”.

    All one big happy Kennard family. Some changes along their business management journey, but always keeping Kennards Hire and Kennards Self Storage en famille as required by the Kennard Family Charter. Cutting ties with the odious Alan Jones makes perfect sense for them.

    That would be people whose cars gather an extra speed as they coast down a hill (instead of braking all the way) or using their iPhone to pay for a cheeseburger at the drive through.

    It is sad to think of all the young men (and women) who join the police with imaginings of protecting the weak, providing succour to the injured, and even a little of children in awe of the uniform listening to them explain why they should be good boys and girls.

    Then the programming starts. The human contact they might have hoped for suddenly lost behind a sold wall of political pieties – with the only interaction with ordinary citizens restricted to pulling them over and handing to incredulous them fines and summonses.

    The second of the RoboCop movies has a seen where the RoboCop character is programmed with a whole lot of SJW guff and the result is that he becomes worse than useless. I had no idea how prescient it was when I watched it at a mates place all those years ago. It was funny then.

    The stinking Australia institute as reported by the stinking abc asserts SA is setting an example for the rest of Australia and proving with renewable energy there is no need for nuclear vis a vis the proposed enquiry into nuclear power:

    “What we found is that for nine of the last 18 months, half of all the energy supplied in South Australia has been from renewable generation, including rooftop solar,” he said.

    “That means that South Australia has been able to operate for a good chunk of the last year and a half with at least 50 per cent of its energy coming from wind and solar.

    “Over the last month there were 44 hours in total where the state was generating enough wind and solar that is equal to what it actually required as an energy demand,” he said.

    This is all lies. Lies by omission of relevant facts such as the 50% of energy is useless without a baseload supplier because a grid cannot run for 50% of the time. Only fossils or nuclear can supply baseload and keep a grid running 100%. The 44 hours is meaningless because renewables vary in output from minute to minute; one minute it might be 100% of demand, the next 0%. Just fucking stupid. The blackouts will have to very long before these bastards wake up.

  56. That would be people whose cars gather an extra speed as they coast down a hill (instead of braking all the way) or using their iPhone to pay for a cheeseburger at the drive through.

    Clearly we need more road safety cameras.

    The cameras will be fitted with the 50 cal (optional attachment) as soon as possible.
    You can trust the programming.

    As I wrote in a comment on The Oz yesterday….once these totalitarian Marxist turds are done with Alan Jones…with Sky after Dark…and anyone else who holds opinions that differ from the far-left zeitgeist…..who and what will be next? I have no doubts that they will set their sights on organisations like News Corp….these Marxist turds don’t like News Corporation. Oh and I know that there is often quite a bit of Hardley Normal bashing here at the Cat….but Gerry Harvey deserves credit for NOT kowtowing to these Marxist turds….unlike the spineless dicks at Bing Lee, at Chemist Warehouse, at Bunnings and so on. As far as I am concerned…these insidious activists and groups are no different to the activists and groups who spruik for the BDS against Israel. There is a lot of fusion between the two…they get money from the same sources and I wouldn’t be surprised if there are people who work for both activist groups.

  64. calli

    I mentioned a few days ago that radio advertising is a very hit and miss, expensive affair. Many of these companies, especially the almost monopolies like Bunnings are simply trimming expenditure while doing a bit of hand waving.

    I doubt whether this will hit the bottom line at all for many of them.

    But 2GB runs on advertising, not fairy farts. This will hurt them. And to date they are the most Conservative of the FTA radio stations. All that will happen is the content will become more and more regressive. Zero differentiation, but that won’t matter to the herd creatures. And it will suit our would-be masters down to the ground.

    I say would-be, but they are pretty much already here. Just unannounced.

    This isn’t even about AJ. It is about the steady stifling of speech, and the blithe complicity of businesses that can expect themselves to be targeted in their turn.

    I predict the faux-feminists, making statements such as “The meat, dairy, and egg industries profit off female reproductive systems and billions of baby animals are separated from their mothers each year so we can drink their mothers’ milk instead”, will soon take issue with the treatment of the great racing mare Winx, who is soon to be publicly raped by I Am Invincible; no courtship, no say in the matter, no choice in the father of her child.

    She will be tethered and thus unable to resist, likely hobbled to prevent her kicking out at her rapist and his collaborators, and I Am Invincible will have his way with her. And then move on to his next victim.

    The term “Useful Idiots” sums them up:

    Anti-Adani activists are paying hundreds to ride a 10-seater rusty bus that tours coal protest sites in northern NSW and central Queensland with one MP calling out the tour as “hypocritical.”

    Ashley Pillhofer
    Lismore Northern Star

    Mystery Dingo Environmental Tours describes itself online as a group which provides “environmental activism tours” which take “people and vital infrastructure to the front lines of environmental protection”.

    Greenies are paying up to $250 for a seat on a rusty bus tour to anti-coal protest sites in northern NSW and central Queensland.

    Just months after Bob Brown’s anti-Adani convoy proved a major flop during the federal election campaign, Mystery Dingo Environmental Tours will bus activists to the region, The Northern Star reports.

    The move has been branded “hypocritical” by local MP George Christensen.

    “The first thing is that there are a lot of components in a car that actually require steel that is made from coal,” he said. “I would sure be interested to know if the bus is electric or if it is a conventional bus which uses fossil fuels.”

    Tour operator Murray Dreschler said the tours started as way to show beautiful locations in the area.

    The man behind the idea, Murray ‘Muzz’ Drechsler, said the experience was about more than fighting against the development of the Galilee Basin.

    “It’s reconnection to nature,” he said.

    “I take people out to see a beautiful part of the world, get them to fall in love with it and I say ‘by the way, there will be a gas seam here or an open cut coal mine here’. You fight for something a lot harder if you love it. I turned a lot of people from passive activists to active activists.”

    Mr Drechsler, who works as a traffic controller in NSW, said he started Mystery Dingo tours eight years ago as a business that took international tourists to beautiful places around his home region. But after becoming involved in blockades and frontline protesting, it morphed into an activism campaign, he said.

    Now, he uses his bus ‘Blockadia’ to take passionate activists from Mullumbimby to protest sites across the country — the bus regularly visits Canberra, followed the Bob Brown convoy and has gone as far as Western Australia.
    Passengers are asked for a “donation”.

    As part of a road trip associated with well known anti-coal groups Frontline Action on Coal and Galilee Blockade, the bus will depart Mullumbimy in northern NSW on September 2 and travel through Brisbane, where it will stop at a few solar farms before continuing to the anti-Adani protest commune (Camp Binbee) about 50km outside Bowen. Mr Drechsler hinted the group would also get “close” to mine sites in the region.

    A seat on the bus sets passengers back a “donation” of $200 to $250, which Mr Drechsler said covered the cost of fuel, camping equipment and keeping Blockadia on the road.

    “It just covers costs, it is not a registered business,” Mr Drechsler said. “I ask for a $200 donation for a trip, I’m not a very good business person, I’m possibly too kind.”

    Despite his passion, Mr Drechsler said he understood locals would not take kindly to out-of-town protesters campaigning against the mining industry.

    Mullumbimby mother Kate Coxall, who became heavily involved with protest groups after the Federal Election, and her child will be joining the trip.

    “I’m really passionate about leaving a planet (that has not) gone through awful social collapse and ecological destruction for my child.

    “I feel the only way forward is to actually put myself out there and to assist people who are willing to put their civil liberties behind them.”

    Responding to online criticism about her plan to bring her child to the frontline, Miss Coxall said she believed it was important to educate children but made it clear she would not risk her child’s wellbeing by risking arrest.

    If you can get past the paywall the pictures encapsulate the words “feral ratbags” – of which there are about 10; very scruffy and looking like they have just done 10 years on heroin. The “bus” is actually a converted truck looking rather unroadworthy.

    I don’t care that much for the adsvertisers pulling their advertising from Jones.
    Here’s the reason.

    Go woke go broke.

    Cassie, Coles own Bunnings so if you don’t go to Woolies who also own Dan Murphy’s…………….

    get the picture.

    We’re too far gone.

    All of this, all of this, ALL OF THIS, is caused by the brainwashing of children in our schools and the utter relentless attack on our country from the UN.

    Let’s channel our energies into where the real fight should be.
    Big corporations, who own most companies, have become big corporations by swaying government policy to create an unfair playing field.
    But the government had to be corruptible for that to happen in the first place.
    And it had to be too big.

    Australian Greenies are not who our politicians are taking their orders from.
    How often do I see comments like “the bloody government is bowing down to the greens again” or “bloody greenies”

    Really?
    Where’s the money in doing that?
    Where’s the chance of international promotion in that?
    When the majority of Australians want what the government won’t give them, it’s obvious money is changing hands.
    Australian Greens and the left here are tighter than a fish’s arse.
    They haven’t got the money, ……………………………..until they are funded from Clintonesque UN , Soros groups etc.

    So who do we fight?
    The green groups or the foreign money?
    The traitors collecting money and career advancement soldiering on for the socialist UN?
    Those businesses taking their advertising away from AJ are slitting their own, and their country’s throat.

    Until we kick the UN to the curb and pull the Marxist shit from our education system, we are doomed.

    Scott Morrison is our problem right now.
    He’s our disaster.
    He is a jelly backed lightweight UN hack.
    All conservative pressure should be on this clown and it isn’t.
    He’s hoping to sail through the next three years or so, being seen as a nice guy and go and watch a few footy games.
    He’s a dead shit.
    The conservative base need to be kicking the Liberal party so hard they won’t be able to sit down for a month of Sundays.
    Evil thrives when good men do nothing and our PM is a do nothing career hack.

    Where is Sco mo on the AJ affair?
    Our fight is best placed attacking the LINO party.
    Out of the UN altogether and outlaw teachers and the like giving political opinion at schools and Uni’s.

    Follow the money.

    Some numbers:

    “What we found is that for nine of the last 18 months, half of all the energy supplied in South Australia has been from renewable generation, including rooftop solar,” he said.

    AEMO tells us that:

    – Over the past 18 months, SA’s energy demand averaged about 1,450MW.
    – SA has 1,800MW installed in wind farms plus a further 900MW rooftop solar.

    Therefore, on average, for half the time SA’s renewable fleet is operating at ~27% nameplate capacity. The other half of the time, somewhere between less than that, and zero.

    Except:

    “Over the last month there were 44 hours in total where the state was generating enough wind and solar that is equal to what it actually required as an energy demand,” he said.

    A whole 44 hours, you say?

    – Over the last month there were 720, or 744 hours.

    Therefore, over the last month, the renewable fleet of 2,700MW installed capacity was capable of supplying 100% of SA’s 1,450MW of instantaneous demand for ~6% to 7% of the time.

    Go you magnificent bastards, GO!

    He’s like Trump, but younger and speaks Portuguese, otherwise just the same.

    President Macron called President Bolsonaro a disgrace to Brazil after he mocked the French leader’s wife.

    The undiplomatic spat eclipsed the agreement at the G7 summit on a plan to send $20 million of aid to extinguish fires raging in the Amazon rainforest and protect what Mr Macron called the “lungs of the planet”.

    Mr Macron has been feuding with Mr Bolsonaro since last week when he accused him of inaction over the fires, charged him with lying and threatened to veto a free-trade agreement between the Mercosur states of South America and the European Union.

    On Sunday Mr Bolsonaro relayed a post from a supporter with an unflattering picture of Brigitte Macron, 66, alongside one of the Brazilian president’s 37-year-old wife, Michelle. “Now you understand why Macron is persecuting Bolsonaro?” the supporter wrote. Mr Bolsonaro added on Facebook. “Do not humiliate the guy, ha ha.”

    The insult came hours after Abraham Weintraub, Brazil’s education minister, called Mr Macron, 41, an “opportunistic cretin seeking the support of the French farm lobby”.

    In Biarritz, where he put the Amazon crisis on the G7 agenda, Mr Macron broke his usual restraint with a riposte that reflected the anger he always shows over attacks on his wife’s age. “He has made some extraordinarily rude comments about my wife,” Mr Macron said at a press conference. “What can I say? It’s sad. It’s sad for him firstly, and for Brazilians.

    The Brazilian dude is kinda right though.

    Toongabbie: Man charged with 85 graffiti offences

    Police swooped on a Toongabbie house and charged a man with 85-graffiti related offences after an investigation into more than $17,000 worth of damage to property.

    Officers from the Police Transport Command North West Transport Action Group and North West Metro Region Enforcement Squad searched the house on Fitzwilliam Rd about 7am yesterday when they arrested a 36-year-old man who was wanted for 35 incidents across the northwest region of Sydney over the past 18 months.

    Police seized 400 spray cans, clothing items used for the alleged offences, keys, cannabis and graffiti sketches.

    The man was conveyed to Parramatta police station where he was charged with 85 offences, including several counts of entering running lines, blacken face with intent, malicious damage (graffiti), possessing a prohibited drug, trespass and goods in custody.

    He was refused bail and remanded in custody and will reappear on Friday August 30.

    Pix show hundreds of spray cans. Must have cost him a motza.

    So alleged thinking about violence is worse than actual violence.

    German right-wing extremists planned ‘hunt’ of migrants: reports

    A police report seen by German media has found that extreme right protesters explicitly tried to violently chase down foreigners. Disagreement over whether such a “hunt” took place nearly toppled the German government.

    New details have emerged in the investigation into the August 2018 demonstrations in Chemnitz that show extreme right-wing individuals made specific plans to “hunt” migrants and foreign-looking individuals, German media reported.

    The news sheds further details on the events one year ago that resulted in Chemnitz taking center stage in discussions on the prevalence of right-wing extremism in Germany and that nearly caused the downfall of Angela Merkel’s national coalition government.

    A ‘great readiness to use violence’ in Chemnitz

    According to research by German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung, and broadcasters WDR and NDR, the Saxony Criminal Police Office evaluated chat messages exchanged between known members of Chemnitz’s extreme right scene between August 26 and 28.

    On August 26, a German national was killed in a stabbing in Chemnitz. Non-German nationals were suspected of the crime, with a 23-year-old Syrian national recently convicted of manslaughter in the crime.

    The stabbing led to a week of far-right protests in the city that drew neo-Nazis from across Germany and saw migrants or foreign-looking individuals chased in the streets.

    Coles own Bunning

    Nope Wesfarmers USED to own both Coles & Bunnings as of late last year they demerged Coles

    On Wednesday 21 November, Coles Group Limited shares commenced trading on the ASX on a deferred settlement basis and Wesfarmers shares commenced trading on an ex-demerger entitlements basis.
    Wesfarmers shareholders will have seen a fall in the ASX price of Wesfarmers shares on this day to reflect that:

    – Wesfarmers shares are being valued excluding Coles Group Limited (other than Wesfarmers’ 15% retained stake) and:
    – for every Wesfarmers share they held on 22 November 2018, eligible Wesfarmers shareholders receive one Coles share (in addition to retaining their Wesfarmers shares).

    On Wednesday 28 November, the demerger of Coles was completed and the transfer of Coles shares to eligible shareholders occurred. Normal trading of Coles shares commenced on Thursday 29 November and despatch of holding statements to eligible shareholders occurred on Friday 30 November.

    Many of these companies, especially the almost monopolies like Bunnings are simply trimming expenditure

    Then why associate themselves with an overtly PC boycott campaign when they could just have claimed the decision not to advertise on Radio 2GB was based on commercial considerations (even if not strictly true)?
    It reminds me of Mark Textor’s dismissive comment about conservative liberal voters 7 weeks before the 2016 election that they “had nowhere else to go”. The boycotting companies are in effect saying that there is no commercial consequence in offending AJ sympathisers.
    The stated justification for the action is rather weak. The “shove a sock down her throat comment” was obviously based on the “put a sock in it” idiom originating from the common way of controlling the sound level from early phonograph horn speakers.

    Old story, but….I bet this is nonsense in the long run, just as we found out that high carb, low-fat diets were crap too.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-05-15/who-plan-to-remove-trans-fats-from-global-food-supply-by-2023/9761656

    The idea that saturated fats, short-chain fatty acids and trans fats are inherently bad and that long-chain cis unsaturated fats have no downsides whatsoever is just superstitious nonsense.

    I’ll ask Bruce – surely a long cis conjugated fatty acid chain can autocatalyse and otherwise autopolymerise into polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and organic polymers?

    I bet an AMA shill can’t even tell my why butyric acid or isobutyric acio is bad for me. Really? Explain the mechanism!

    WHO wants to strip trans fats from global food supply in five years

    Updated 15 May 2018, 2:23pm

    The World Health Organisation (WHO) wants industrially-produced trans fats — linked with 500,000 deaths worldwide each year — stripped out of the global food supply within five years.

    So basically the powers that be only want you to eat highly refined food (real food will have some short-chain saturated fats and some long-chain trans fats) – which is the real problem with diet, health, syndrome-X and public healthcare & moral hazard.

    Who is Nefertiti Austin

    Motherhood So White
    In America, Mother = White

    That’s what Nefertiti, a single African American woman, discovered when she decided she wanted to adopt a Black baby boy out of the foster care system. Eager to finally join the motherhood ranks, Nefertiti was shocked when people started asking her why she wanted to adopt a “crack baby” or said that she would never be able to raise a Black son on her own. She realized that American society saw motherhood through a white lens, and that there would be no easy understanding or acceptance of the kind of family she hoped to build.

    The Liberals’ continual snubbing of their base is a mystery to me. Three different theories about the Liberals:
    1. They are simply much more of the Left than their base.
    2. They can only hear the ABC and its ilk, not the voiceless “quiet Australians”.
    3. They take its base’s support for granted, and reckon they might as well lurch to the Left for extra votes.
    Whichever of the above it is, I question their wisdom of lurching to the Left on these issues.

    Background

    • The People’s Republic of China initiated an anti-dumping investigation regarding Australian barley in November 2018.

    • The World Trade Organisation definition of injurious dumping is when exports are sold at a price lower than the exporting country’s domestic market, and/or lower than production costs which results in ‘injury’ to the importing country’s domestic production.

    • The Australian grain industry has co-operated in full with the Chinese Government during the course of the investigation and has vigorously defended the position that dumping has not occurred.

    • Although the Australian grain industry is confident that dumping has not occurred, the likely outcome of this anti-dumping investigation is unknown at this point in time.

    • Possible outcomes could include the imposition of provisional import measures on Australian barley exports to China. These measures have a similar impact as tariffs in that they artificially increase the price of Australian barley in China.

    • China has been Australia’s largest barley export market and Australia is the largest supplier of barley to China. This investigation has created considerable uncertainty within the Australian grain market, since November 2018, that has resulted in downward pressure on Australian barley prices.

    • Growers should also be aware of the broad range of factors that have and may further impact barley prices over the coming season. While the issues surrounding the China export market are uncertain, other factors would include Australian crop conditions and issues such as global weather and plantings for grain crops in other countries.

    • The Australian grain industry working group; the Grains Industry Market Access Forum, Australian Grain Exporters Council, GrainGrowers, Grain Producers Australia and Grain Trade Australia fully respect China’s right to conduct these investigations under the trade based rules of the World Trade Organisation.
