The thing that truly saddens me is that since Bond's off shored their
manufacturing even if we do all buy and wear red undies on our heads it
will not benefit the true Aussie Battlers().   Perhaps the move will
shore up the struggling local retailers like Harvey Normans so that is

Laying another subsea cable just offshore's more of the internet traffic
to cheaper overseas locations rather than encouraging investment in
locally produced packets.
