Australia: Goodbye, and thanks for all the cash!

May 24, 2013

What, more? Oh, you shouldn’t have!

Ford Australia executives have announced that the company will cease manufacturing in 2016; but thanks to the Gillard government there’s still a chance to snort some coke off nude supermodels’ bellies at the taxpayer’s expense.

TAXPAYER funds will keep flowing to Ford Australia for the next three years to finish vehicles including a six-cylinder diesel wagon that receives $47 million in industry aid because it is considered a “green” car.

As a political row flared over car subsidies, the Gillard government confirmed that the $34m top-up it promised Ford last year had already been handed over and that more would be paid before the company closed its Victorian factories in 2016.
