Both at a State and Federal level, the Liberal and Labor parties have a compromising relationship with the undemocratic Chinese Government.
There has been increased influence of companies with strong links to foreign governments and overseas based developers on the major parties, often in the form of political donations and other largesse. Like all political donations that come from vested interests, this has a corrupting influence on our democracy.
The sale of state assets to businesses either owned by, or under the influence of, the Chinese Government, can risk Tasmania's food security and political autonomy.
We need to ensure that Tasmanian interests aren't undermined by the Liberal and Labor parties unhealthy relationship with undemocratic foreign governments. We also need proper scrutiny and transparency over foreign acquisitions.
