The two foreign languages which will be most important for our future trade etc are Chinese & Spanish (but which Chinese?)

But let's get English right first.

Know the enemies of a civil society by their public behaviour, by their fraudulent claim to be liberal-progressive, by their propensity to lie and, above all, by their attachment to authoritarianism.

Like former British colony Hong Kong or Macau.
It is only matter of time when China will take over British colony Australia allowing it special status and usage of English language and even own flag and Aussie head of state.
As you can see much more generous autonomy than British presently give you.

Grin Grin Grin

In this regard, if the UK is anything to go by, I think it'll be more useful to learn Hindi, Gujarati, or Tamil.

The Hong Kong Chinese have been chucking riots ever since the British departed. Mainland China doesn't want them to elect their own officials or have a truly free press ... and more besides.

It was a case of "Careful what you wish for" with those Hong Kong Chinese who wanted to see the back of the Brits. Months later they were rioting in the streets against the new oppressive regime that descended upon them.

Maybe we should be taking a bit more notice of this advice instead of running a fire sale on residential, agricultural, grazing & resource industry property in Australia to the Chinese.

Politicians are like nappies; they need to be changed often and for the same reason.
The most difficult choice a politician must ever make is whether to be a hypocrite or a liar.

I smell trouble in the wind......

We need to learn Mandarin and Cantonese so we can communicate with our new overlords in Austrochine..... where the natives will be treated much as the French treated the Indochinois....

Time to lock the gates in every possible way if we are to save the ship..... or like HMS Prince Of Wales, she'll go down after a few hits because of poor compartmentalisation procedures, failures to close waterproof doors etc....

Our 'political leadership' needs to show some balls and get away from stupid, narrow-minded, short-sighted navel gazing over their personal special interest fiefdoms and start working for the nation as a whole..... and not as a hole.....

Labor need to dump their silly social science first policy, and the LNP need to dump their silly business first policy - NEITHER is doing the nation and its people any favours, and they need to get back to their (buzz-word coming) CORE duties.

...

Damn - a Mk V or Mk IX wouldn't catch that sucker.. not without a serious wing-shaking dive.... that was the job of the Typhoon with the massive engine etc ...

Maybe then we can have road signs in Chinese so that the worst drivers on the roads can actually read them.

You'd have been extremely lucky to see a Mk.V Spitfire in 1944 in the UK.   Mk.IXs were also on their way out.  A Mk.XIV was more than sufficient to catch an Fi.103 "Doodlebug".   The Typhoon couldn't do it. Tempest's could.  The Tempest was the fastest propeller driven fighter the RAF had.  Capable of 432 mph at 18,000 feet.   Cool

Two good things would come out of the occupation of Australia by  Tina.
1) It would be the end of the blood sucking Abbo reverse racism.
2) it would be the end of muzzo infestation, the Chinese don't tolerate muzzo scum.

Write them in some social justice warrior emojis and the street signs would be in your language.
