Bertram Western Australia
For security reasons alone Australian defense submarines need to be built and maintained in Australia. How can you have the blue prints for our front-line defense of Australia in foreign, albeit a trading partner, hands, who knows what will happen in 10 or 15 years time and who will be on whose side in times of crisis and war. In addition the production of submarines in Australia will help build future job skills for our kids, further ancillary jobs created, taxes will be paid and and surplus income spent assisting with our employment issues here in Australia. Worry about Australian issues first and foremost.
