You Can Trust The ABC

Australia’s ABC carries an opinion piece in which the author, one Stan Grant, argues essentially Australia is wasting its time up grading its submarine fleet as China is already too far ahead and further that ‘the West’ is in no shape to take on an increasingly belligerent China.

Mr Grant seems to not understand the West might include some pretty powerful nations other than Australia and the US. Adolf can’t help but wonder what he would have written in early 1939 about ‘the West’s’ ability to take on Germany.

Anyway, I thought I should find out a bit about the ABC’s China expert and here he is.

As of 2021, he is Vice-Chancellor’s Chair of Australian/Indigenous Belonging at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga. He has worked as an Australian television news and political journalist and television presenter since the 1990s. He is known for his writing on Indigenous issues, and has written and spoken extensively on his Aboriginal identity as a Wiradjuri man.

Australian tax payers cough up $1.2 billion dollars each year for the ABC to hire experts like this fellow.

  1. His opinion on submarines and strategy is worth about as much as mine on Wiradjuri matters.

  2. Rebel News with Avi down there in Melbourne, and Sky News Australia covers it for me.

    Pretty impressed with Sky News, they have carved out a niche from an organisation who I thought no such thing was possible.
