The Kidman cattle empire is an Australian icon, and must remain that way. If Gina Rhinehart wants to buy it, then she can do so on her own, without Chinese interests, but the company must not be sold into overseas interests. Gina has shown her colours in the past and she will continue on that path in the future.
