    What’s the bank gonna do with hundreds of thousands of empty properties?

    Governments will print mountain ranges of money and dole it out to whomever it sees fit. Stop worrying about it because it is already done.

    Breaking Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced a six-month moratorium on evictions.

    Does he even have the authority to do that? I thought that would be a state matter.

    Looks like Townsville residents have committed the same act lemmings do over seaside cliffs. The ALP affiliated Mayor & all bar 1 or 2 of her incompetent/corrupt crew look like they are being returned. However hey, democracy is a bitch sometimes and if Deb can pull off the impossible in a few months. Them the CCC’s leash may be released and her dealings may be seeing headlines like her mate Pisasale in Ipswich.

    But libertarians do trust the CCP when taking over Australian companies. They are fine with government intervention in our economy, so long as it’s foreign communist governments.

    If the CCP itself is buying up AU companies then our government should block that for sure, because that’s not even close to a level playing field. If it’s a reasonably legit private Chinese company that is subject to all the regular rule of law, then I’m generally OK with that. I’m aware there are many grey areas and if they look dodgy they quite likely are dodgy but at least in principle Australia should be open for business.

    Having a reciprocal system is what we really want, so Australians should get equal opportunity to buy Chinese land, as the Chinese buying Australian land. Kind of like balance of trade you want the mutual obligations to be roughly equal.

    From DrBeauGan at 7:29 pm:

    “I withdraw all the rude things I have said about women being too emotional to be allowed to vote. The blokes here are every bit as bad.

    You’ve all known for years that our so called leaders are a bunch of incompetents and corrupt. Now you’re getting hysterical because they’re proving it again.”

    That is rare good sense to cast before the expert hoops at this race meeting. It reminds me of this:

    There’s some that ride the Robbo style, and bump at every stride;
    While others sit a long way back, to get a longer ride.
    There’s some that ride like sailors do, with legs and arms, and teeth;
    And some ride on the horse’s neck, and some ride underneath.

    But all the finest horsemen out — the men to Beat the Band —
    You’ll find amongst the crowd that ride their races in the Stand.
    They’ll say “He had the race in hand, and lost it in the straight.”
    They’ll show how Godby came too soon, and Barden came too late.

    They’ll say Chevalley lost his nerve, and Regan lost his head;
    They’ll tell how one was “livened up” and something else was “dead” —
    In fact, the race was never run on sea, or sky, or land,
    But what you’d get it better done by riders in the Stand.

    The rule holds good in everything in life’s uncertain fight;
    You’ll find the winner can’t go wrong, the loser can’t go right.
    You ride a slashing race, and lose — by one and all you’re banned!
    Ride like a bag of flour, and win — they’ll cheer you in the Stand.

    I was actually amazed when the federal government blocked Huawei. I didn’t think they had it in them. Of course, it wasn’t because they had any courage, it was thanks to the US threatening to lock allies out of the 5-eyes if they sign up to Huawei. So for the moment, we did the principled thing, but only because US influence remains strong.

    Great, so every rental contract which has an eviction clause, which is all of them, has been rendered null and void by pollies.

    Every dirt bag in the country just stopped paying rent.

    Ok, so this can be seen as a compassionate social policy. But something tells me that certain quarters will not be fastidious in paying the rent for six months at all, because – why pay six months when you don’t have to?

    But then they will be evicted which leaves them in a worse position. But you can’t tell people that. It’s like increasing social welfare benefits by double – at some stage, some government will need to take that back.

    An epidemiologist on channel 9 news spoke a lot of sense.
    Knock it down to a low level and you have it for many months or a year. Let it wash through at a manageable level and the young will become immune. The only cure is a vaccine.

    Why are we keeping the young and fit locked away and prolonging the pain?

    Never in the field of human endeavour has so few done so much to so many for so little.

    Why? I can only assume that they want to destroy the economy. Talking about six months of this agony means they know their method will take this long and perhaps longer and they are OK with the economic destruction.

    Spain: ‘Youths’ Attack Ambulances Transporting Elderly Coronavirus Patients

    The attack took place in the city of La Línea de la Concepción, which lies on the Spanish border with the British territory of Gibraltar, and saw the youths prevent the passage of the convoy of medical vehicles that were carrying 28 elderly infected with the Wuhan coronavirus.

    Local police arrested two people — a 25-year-old and a 32-year-old — but said that a total of 50 young people were involved in the incident, which also saw officers attacked with two homemade explosive devices, according to Sud Ouest.

    One might avoid the anguish and tears of residential rental property ownership through some homework first.

    Tenants are a valuable voter block. Joe Schipp of Two Waggas, Nick Greiner’s Minister for Housing, reminded me of that in the late ’80s. “You cannot have what you are asking for Mick because that will upset the State’s tenants, and they have representatives in every electorate. You will understand.” he added with a grin. That meeting didn’t last long.

    During World War II the NSW State Government introduced residential rent control and owners had to jump through numerous hoops to increase their rental, and there was a maximum to boot. It was still in operation for some tenants 30 years after the war ended. I would have to research it to remind myself of the detail but I would put the rent money on the government of the time having promised it would be an interim measure until peace broke out. There was no rent control for banks or dentists.

    In the second quarter of 2019 the QLD State Government expanded the rights of residential tenants at the expense of owners – pets, renovations on demand and so on.

    Tracey Spicer’s “A Current Affair” has, for decades, sold valuable advertising time because lots of people avidly watch stories featuring grubby tenants who don’t pay and stingy landlords who charge too much. She rarely, if ever, features commercial tenancies.

    Take a dodgy commercial or industrial tenant to the general court for failure to pay rent and the beak will deal with it in 10 minutes – “Pay up by Wednesday week or vacate.” All very distant, business-like and restrained.

    Take a dodgy residential tenant to the court system specially set aside for residential tenancy disputes and the magistrate will throw their arm around the tenant’s shoulders, murmur kindly “It’s not your fault” and order that the tenant has 8 weeks – no, 15 weeks – to start paying $20 per week, and less if its a single mother. The owner is directed to shut up and get back into his box. It’s emotional and political.

    I alerted the children to this and steered them to industrial units in established inner suburbs. Industrially zoned land has been in short supply in NSW, Victoria and now Queensland for as long as I have been paying attention. As their fortunes have improved they have gradually worked their way through an industrial unit complex, buying any that become available with the prospect of rezoning and redevelopment within the decade, for the medium density housing much favored by the local council.

    For now it costs a gurney and repaint every 3, 4 or 5 years, upgrade the roof plumbing, keep the roller doors in working order and maintain relevant insurance cover. Rentals don’t fall away, there is continuous demand for a limited supply and capital value growth exceeds that of the residential markets.

  147. EvilElvis

    Transfer pricing.

    Foreign residents doing business in Australia Press right to expand, left to close.
    Australians doing business overseas Press right to expand, left to close.

    GST on low value imported goods Press right to expand, left to close.
    Payments to foreign residents
    Transfer pricing
    In detail Press right to expand, left to close.
    Transfer pricing

    If you have international transactions with a related party – such as a loan from your foreign subsidiary – your Australian tax can be affected if the amounts for the transaction don’t comply with the arm’s length principle under the transfer pricing rules.

    Some multinational businesses attempt to shift their profits to low-tax jurisdictions by setting unrealistic prices for their actual commercial or financial dealings with their related parties.

    Businesses with related party international dealings may have their transfer pricing reviewed or audited by us, with the possibility of pricing adjustments and penalties.

    The more significant and broader the scope of a business’s international dealings with related parties, the more likely we are to review those dealings. Businesses with significant levels of dealings whose tax performance is low compared to industry standards are at the greatest risk of review.

    Crucial scene now in View to a Kill. Zoran is a loon trying to destroy the world. Grace Jones, his henchwoman confused. But real story of the film, is who will bang Grace Jones? She slept with Bond early on. Right at end she changes sides in symbolic gesture that she flirted with being a carpet muncher, but now that Bond has slept with her, she is actually hetro. That is central meaning of the film. Simple morality play. Bond turning her away from the Dark Side.

    The NHS failed a major cross-government test of its ability to handle a severe pandemic but the “terrifying” results were kept secret from the public, the Sunday Telegraph can reveal.

    Codenamed Exercise Cygnus, the three-day dry run for a pandemic carried out in October 2016 tested how NHS hospitals and other services would cope in the event of a major flu outbreak with a similar mortality rate to Covid-19.

    The report on Cygnus’s findings were deemed too sensitive by Whitehall officials to be made public but the Sunday Telegraph has established that it found:

    That they are. True story. But Zinc requires other co-operative nutrients to be absorbed all the way into the cell before it can roll up these viruses like some antifa pansies surrounded by the Hells Angels. So its not cut and dried that continual masturbation under isolation conditions can be remedied with a simple pill. Its more likely that you can replace your zinc with purple onions and some of those canned oysters. India is completely vanquished. Though the cow gives a man all he really needs, she cannot change the laws of physics. And the last molecule of zinc left the soils of inland India many moons ago.

    So if the communist Chinese aren’t funding these atrocities against our Aryan sisters, for the purpose of robbing our precious Brahmin bodily fluids, then I’d want to find out who is putting up the money, and have a good talk to them. I’d want them interrogated. And preferably at the other end of a rope.

    On This Day:

    The Browning M1911 came into service, and was used in every major and most minor conflicts worldwide from that day to this.

    “When you are going out for shopping, you should be going for just stuff you need and do it and get home. It is not a time for browsing. It is not a time for catching up with friends or bumping into people and having a long conversation.”

    These people are megalomaniacs. Absolute control freaks.

    The virus isn’t.even on their radar now. This is about testing out all the new biosecurity health laws they have and compliance.

    Tom BD, think you need to remember that the one of the few things we know about the bloke who wrote Romeo & Juliet, is that in his will he left his wife his second best bed.

    KD, the people stopper lives on. One thing I’ve never figured out is why the Poms didn’t use them in Hurricane, Spitfire, Mosquito, Lancaster etc rather than 303.

    Tom Bombay Dillo channeling Dr Strangelove:

    These are lizards trying to rob us of our precious bodily fluids, in order that their lurgies mow through us, like machine gun fire on the western front. Though I am a virile Indian man, with a more than passing resemblance to Magnum PI, I try my best not to fall for their prevarications.

    Arky, enough.

    It’s not as if we haven’t tried to tolerate you over the years.

    No need to get all “sock puppetry” about it.

    Wet markets are open again so how long before covid 19 breaks out or have the Chinese got a vaccine? Nothing adds up or we have been fed a lot if nonsense.

    William didn’t write much of anything. Its clear he was a front man. Did not his very name signal something to you? Did you not get suspicious at his very name? They are laughing at my cousins of the whiter shade of pale, and its seems that this part of the Aryan brotherhood never picks a damn thing up. If you can’t see that something is afoot with that ridiculously theatrical name, I don’t really know what to say to you. Maybe this lack of guile, from our brothers of the whiter shade of pale, affords them a greater level of social capacities.

    Whenever they hide one scandal behind another they always talk of this or that man. So its Roger Bacon or Essex or some other homosexual. But just like the Jack the Ripper story, they try and crowd out the reality that it was a team effort. Yes sorry you had to hear it from me, Johnny Depp had it quite right.

    So it was a team effort and we can trace two writers. One of the writers being a “dead man” named Marlowe. Another being a swarthy beauty of the rabbinical persuasion: Emily.

    In the current mad mad world we live in, just never ever forget that there is somewhere a voice of reason out there (compulsory viewing for you TomBD):

    From Nick at 5:58 pm:

    “Hey ?

    Refugee advocates fear time is running out for a refugee to return to his my Australian home without my permission after he was denied the right to board a flight from Indonesia to Australia because of his visa status as a filthy medieval death cultist.

    Amir Amir Mohammed Amir Amir, a young Iranian refugee illegal chancer on an Australian safe haven visa, has been sent back to Turkey amid the coronavirus crisis.

    Amir Amir Mohammed Amir Amir’s local MP, Peter Khalil, the Labor member for Wills in Victoria, said Amir the greaser had been granted permission to leave Australia to visit his mother in Turkey in early February, before cutting his trip short to return home sneak into Australia as the Covid-19 pandemic spread across the world.

    ….”

    That Centrelink scam must be an absolute ripper rort – a return flight back to the wadi whenever he feels like visiting his mother, to give her a culturally correct smack across the scone whenever he feels like it?

    Why do they permit a mackerel with sub human hygiene to stink up an aeroplane and carry germs and lice and weevils back on his grubby clothes into Australia?

    If he is a reffo at risk of being chucked off a tall building back in Mogadishu-stan why isn’t his mother at risk too?

    Tom BD, did you watch Shakespeare in Love & if so what were your thoughts?

    Wet markets are open again so how long before covid 19 breaks out or have the Chinese got a vaccine? Nothing adds up or we have been fed a lot if nonsense.

    Is animal to human transmission even possible? Some say no, it’s never been proven.
    Deaths are happening in heavily populated areas to people with compromised immune systems, that seems real, if you can believe anything the media reports.
