Freo's View

Fremantle Society president John Dowson is losing the plot and needs to be reigned in by its members and committee!

This racist rubbish below, that he sent to FS members, is disgraceful and outrageous and it is unacceptable.

Fremantle gets many thousands of Malaysian tourists every months who support our retailers, hospitality industry and economy and Malaysia is a very important neighbour for WA.

Chinese interest in our mining industry are very high and China is a very important export market for our state.

The right-wing rant from the FS president is an embarrassment to the community group and Fremantle.

Which Flag Will Fly in King’s Square?

The massive sell off of ratepayer assets by Fremantle Council means that Queensgate, Queensgate car park, and the Spicer site in the heart of Fremantle belong to Sirona Capital, who have hinted the assets may be sold to overseas interests. Does this mean that key strategic assets adjoining King’s Square may soon be owned by Communist Chinese or Islamic Malaysian interests? Both countries are increasingly buying large stakes and large influence in this country.

    I cant see why a question should not be posed as to international investors buying up Australian assets.
    Sirona has made an amazing business deal for the company, courtesy of our benevolent City fathers. Why shouldn’t Sirona seek the highest bidder, just because Freo Council did not. That purchaser may well be other cashed up countries. I hope not but time will tell.

    Can you explain what part of John’s comments you consider racist?

    I disagree with one part of what he says but I also interpreted Sirona’s comments as them saying the would offload the assets (pre-development) to someone for the right price.

    Leave out the words Communist and Islamic and John makes a very fair point. Only last week the Sydney GPO was sold to foreign interests. Surly it is fundamentally wrong to sell assests so indiscriminately to foreign interests.

    What has CoF done with the income from selling our assets?
