Ahh yes and we continue to allow cheap inferiour product in to this country from china...

Done suppose any of you say the article in the herald sun where they had to scrap all the citylimits and toll gantry signage steel on the eastlink project - steel that was all imported from china...

I'm just as guilty as the next when it come to buying chinese items - but there needs to be FAR stricter regulations regarding the safety of imported goods - particularly from china.

There seems to be real problems with quality control of late. The kids toys that turned into GBH for example.

If importers haven't got quality control measures in place there may be a need for some extra regulation to ensure product safety. :?:

What we need and what we get maybe two different issues which is rather unfortunate. Cheers....

I personally don't believe that to always be the case but is sure applies in most situations. Cheers Gypsy....

People are also reminded that if you use the "Swap & Go" stations you could be provided with anything.

When i was buying a gas bottle i had Two options... Buy a Swap and Go one... already full.. which means paying a initial fee to use them plus the fee for the bottle of gas... or buying a bottle outright... I chose to buy a bottle outright because that way i know its mine... i don't have the hassle of finding somewhere near the campsite to swap it... and really... the only thing it saves you is 5 minutes time from getting your own bottled re filled.. Thats 5 minutes of good chin waggin time finding where the best fishing spot is from one of the locals re filling it.. and there is always the risk of a swap and go bottle being faulty... afterall you know know what sort of a life it has had...

Unless of course your bottle is nearly out of test, then it's swap n go
