  • @Richard,
    If you havn't noticed Anna sold off our grounds to the Chinese.
    So in effect , all chinese should have a share of the wealth.
    Its a depletable resource with a finite life.

    Richard Tuesday 6 March, 2012 - 11:12 AM
  • Yeah, another great post APA. Except for two tiny problems.
    1) it's complete nonsense and
    2) it's complete nonsense.
    It was such a big problem I thought I'd state it twice.

  • @Another Proud Aussie
    Another exceptional post from you. Although Clive Palmer himself can't believe that he was given the award and neither can I, based on Clive's statement that he answerable to his company's shareholders and no one else. A National Treasure should understand that he is ripping vast resources out of Australian ground and that ground belongs first and foremost to all Australians and ALL Australians should share in the ground that, when he leaves, will just be a great hole in the ground.

    BTW, the Australian economy is in great shape.

  • Clive Palmer is a wonderful Australian who has worked hard, built up wealth & used his own money to invest and actually employs 2,200 in Qld alone.
    He & the other large mining companies already pay massive taxes & royalties to the States & LIEbor are annoyed that they are not getting their own way on the MRRT of getting more straight through to their Federal treasury directly to waste, as it certainly wont be going to the benefit of the rest of Australia they keep pointing to.
    Lies, scams, plotting, manipulation & more misinformation.
    The outrageous attacks & insults by the weasel Swan is just disgraceful.
    Palmer stands up for himself quite rightfully against the rotten to the core LIEbor Party.
    Swans outbursts against Clive & other mining magnates like Gina & Twiggy & attacks them for their perceived power from their wealth, when there should be more scrutiny on the power of LIEbor Unions & their control of this govt & bleeding the country & our economy dry.
    Swans just peeved off that the mining giants are not playing ball to fill up their squandered coffers even more & just as the public are insulted as of no consequence, incontinent & deniers, the mining companies who are great employers & huge taxpayers are abused and insulted.
    About time this broken Swan is put to rest before we all have a real breakdown of our own, as we have had an absolute gutful of this diabolical disastrous LIEbor Union Run Extremist Greens Independents Traitors Party trashing our country.
