The Banana Republic Letter to Julia Gilliard

I like what you are trying to achieve with your carbon tax, but if you want to win some friends I really think you should do something about the price of bananas. Imagine living in a tropical area like Qld and for one year of paying $15 a kilo when people in Europe can buy bananas for $1 a kilo. This is totally outrageous. This protectionism of banana farmers is ridiculous when it means we have a cyclone, which we have had for a 2 out of 3 years and such outrageous prices.

I am not one to normally complain about such food stuff but if you wan to win favor with the mums and dads of Australia, allowing them to buy our favorite fruit is an essential in my book.

Please consider doing something about this problem as apparently we have another 6 months before the availability of bananas will mean reasonable prices again, hopefully, if we don’t have another cyclone this summer.
