  • Roger, the governments of the day watched Ansett get bought up, sold raped and pillaged by Air New Zealand. They did not lift a finger to help Australian fledging airlines like Compass 1 and 2, Impulse etc fill the void. But Peter Beattie gave tax cuts to lure Virgin to Queensland. This is the party for the people, the strugglers, the down trodden, gave tax cuts to an international rich man. The hypocrisy is that anytime the conservative looked like giving the business sector a tax break, the ALP are all over them saying they are just helping the top elite. If they where really the party for the people, they would have supported fledging Australian airlines and achieved the same low airfare result. If Virgin goes, good riddens. Also I find it ironic that with all the child molesters charged and sentenced within the ALP, they support an airline with the name of Virgin. Shows where there mind set is.

  • Cry, how much do you think you would be paying for a ticket on your 'Australian Icon' if Virgin wasn't around for competition....ah the good old days when only the well heeled could afford to fly.

  • Roger, I never flew Peter Beatties Virgin tax break foreign airline, I have always been patriotic and either flew Ansett, Compass 1 and 2 when they existed and now Qantas. Thank goodness that Newman is supporting an Australian icon.

  • They are threatening to pull out does not mean they have. I do not remember Virgin complaining two years ago I wonder if the Bligh government supported Virgin any more this government.

  • Don't airports come under federal juristiction Bob?
    Virgin are using Bullying tactics and Can Can is staying resillient.
    Unlike that economic prostitute and vandal that was in George St last year.
    Remember that the state needs rebuilding after being torched by Bligh
