They are justifying lowing the tax free rate by saying it will encourage people to buy Australian and level the field for local retailers. OMG are they serious?

The reason we buy online from overseas is because our dollar is strong, even with 10% GST and shipping most things are still cheaper. If the local retailers were offering a decent fair price you'd buy locally.

When BMW AU charge 3 times what a retailer in the US is, who's making money on the part too, including shipping (of one item not bulk) something is seriously farking wrong.

Everything in Australia is getting so bloody expensive..
