Prime Minister Scott Morrison has defended accusations that upcoming social credit scores being proposed for Australia will be “a clone of Communist China.”
In the face of criticism that Morrison was being a complete hypocrite on China, Scomo stated he had taken the complaints and considerations on board.
“I understand the concerns that digital COVID certificates and vaccines are a blatant trojan horse for overt social credit scores and increased surveillance however, with the guidance provided to us from Davos and our own experience is that we will be applying that great EZFKA principle of the fair go,” Morrison told a packed media scrum.
Under the plan being drawn up, purchases of investment property and sizeable property portfolios would reflect a higher social credit score. High levels of personal debt would also increase one’s social standing as well as social activities such as consumption of sportsball, discussion of property at bbq’s and money spent on alcohol. Those with modest savings, bonds and bitcoin as well as those in productive industries would be severely punished and possibly banished to the regions.
The scores would also give preferential access to migrants looking to dive into the high-rise market and added scores for remittance of profits back to their country of origin.
“Wage theft is another great pillar of EZFKA’s success, so we will be making the plan accessible for those job creating migrants to come here and send their profits offshore.”
The plan will go before parliament next week and already has bipartisan endorsement from the ALP.
