Ok, dunno quite know how to express it. Was in the South Australian riverland some 35-40 years ago, as well as 1999.. the changes are remarkable. Where once was sleepy little riverland towns, a viable economy and relatively pristine environment - now wall to wall brick veneer and fake Tuscan villas built out of plasterboard and thin veneer. Local vineyards, orchards, pubs and shops, are now "corporatised'. Was wondering who owned (or controlled - the names "Renmano", "Berri") .. and most of the vineyards around here -. Was told that it was some amorphous "hedge fund" American entity called 'constellation'. ("No one can make you feel inferior without your consent")?
Yer, well, sonny, am not inferior and I do not consent.
Fuck off, Wall Street.
Signing up to a "CO2 Emissions Trading Scheme" is tantamount to "trusting Wall Street trading schemes".
