Airline troubles in Australasia
Some years ago whilst holding meetings in Johannesburg, South
Africa, one man who had been present at these meetings went back to work that
night to his job at South African Airways. Arriving back at his office, he
punched into the computer general information and was astounded to read these
"Ultimately only six airlines will remain on earth."
It is for this reason that we are particularly interested in
the state of affairs taking place in Australia and New Zealand at this time of
During the month of April, Qantas New Zealand went into
receivership and just before that, Ansett Airlines was shut down in Australia,
owing, they said, to cracks in the superstructure of the planes. Some may see
this to be a coincidence and yet we see it as a planned event gradually
whittling down the power of some of the players, preparing them for a merger
which will bring about the original intention to leave only six companies on
Not only that, we find that the airports around the world are
being privatised and sold to overseas buyers. For example, getting off the plane
at Johannesburg one evening, we were astounded to learn that the Italians had
control of this airport. We got off the plane at Brisbane in Australia and
discovered that a Dutchman had control of that one. We then learnt that Changi
Airport in Singapore is a major shareholder in Auckland's International
Airport. And as we watch the news, we see airports being sold all over the
world, obviously part of a larger plan.
We now turn to the Business HERALD, 14 March 2001 and
read: "Airport lands foreign interest -
Singapore's Civil Aviation Authority, which runs Changi
Airport, may buy a stake in Sydney Airports, which is in the process of being
sold to the public.
Foreign airports, including those in Singapore and Germany,
are keen to purchase a stake in the Australian airports,....
A purchase by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore's
overseas investment unit, Changi Airport Enterprises, would boost links between
the operator of Australia's busiest airport and Changi, one of the region's
busiest airports and an important connecting point between Britain and
The Australian Government said in January that it had asked
Salomon Smith Barney to advise on its $A4 billion ($2 billion) sale of Sydney's
four airports, either through an initial public offering or through a private
offer.". Then in the NZ Herald on 27 March 2001: "Cabinet mulls sale
- The Australian Government is likely to discuss plans for
the sale of the country's biggest airport as ministers look for ways to cover
Budget shortfalls, says a newspaper.
Prime Minister John Howard's cabinet would consider whether
to offer Sydney Airport for partial or full sale, the Australian Financial
Review reported, without citing sources ....
A share offer is seen as a way of giving more 'mums and
dads' a stake in a key Australian company, which the federal Government did
with telecommunications giant Telstra in two separate share offerings...."
Global government, here we come, as all our assets are being
sold out little by little, all over the world.
This is called Fabian Socialism in action.
