Vegemite is set to return to Australian ownership after dairy company Bega announced it would buy most of Mondelez International's Australia and New Zealand grocery and cheese business. Are you pleased to hear this news?
Properties granted to World War II veterans are among 150,000 hectares of farmland in northern Queensland that the Defence Department has earmarked for acquisition to allow Singaporean soldiers more room to train on Australian soil.
A group of 23 families who stand to lose their grazing properties have accused Defence of conducting a domestic "invasion" and a "land grab" on behalf of Singapore and say they will not sell.
They fear that Defence will roll over the top of them via compulsory acquisition, although so far officials have only said in letters that the properties are in an "expansion zone" and have requested face-to-face meetings with owners.
The move to expand the Army's high range training area west of Townsville is the result of a $2.2 billion deal signed in May in which the Turnbull government agreed to allow 14,000 Singaporean soldiers to train each year at Townsville and Shoalwater Bay, near Rockhampton, by 2021.
Grazing properties in the sights of Defence will be used for tank training and $300 million will be spent on new facilities, including barracks and a mock town for insurgency training in conditions like those that western armies face in Afghanistan and Iraq.
But the vast majority of farmers who have been told they could lose their land are prepared to go to war with the government and already have their local MP, Bob Katter, in their corner.
The firebrand Queenslander, who has threatened to begin "World War III" with Defence to ensure farmers can stay on their land, met with Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne and Finance Minister Mathias Cormann in Canberra this week in a bid to persuade Defence to look elsewhere.
"I told [Senator Cormann] there won't be much change from half a billion [dollars]. One of these properties was recently sold for over $17 million," Mr Katter said.
"You do not take prime agricultural area for a military training area."
Some of the land to be acquired were "ballot properties" offered to returned serviceman from World War II, including that of beef producer David Nicholas at Payne's Lagoon, bordering the current training area.
His father John, a veteran of the Middle East and Papua New Guinea, took on a bare block in a ballot in 1963 and the family has built it up ever since, with Mr Nicholas planning to pass the property on to his children.
"It would be bad enough if it was for Australian troops to train but it looks to me like the government is interested in a money-making venture by training overseas troops here," Mr Nicholas said.
"These farms are a generational thing and they expected their sons, daughters and grandchildren to take over for them."
Neo-nazis are sometimes exposed as two-faced. Preaching against homosexuality while being secretly gay themselves. Such charges of hypocrisy can't be levelled at Mike Enoch. He's as straight as they come and has a Jewish wife to prove it.
Four so-called 'Apex' criminals are set to be deported after a string of repeat-offences including aggravated burglaries and carjackings. All four men have appealed the cancellation of their visas. They all want to live here, they just don't want to work. http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/four-apexlinked-thugs-to-be-booted-out-of-australia/news-story/7b0c8c27819ef6a1e2d012bcdc3c3307
Let's play GUESS WHO? One of us is floating on cloud nine. One of us specialises in sharting. One of us has a ball of swelling the size of a golf ball placed perfectly on their perineum (for those first timers playing along at home - that's your gooch) WHO'S WHO!?!
