Thank goodness the Australian Government are coming to the aide of the residents of Beaconsfield (Tasmania)but the employees and the union have reason to be concerned for the future of their jobs and their town ...

The ambiance of who the real heroes are is aptly reflected in what the journalist has portrayed but that will not save the future of the families affected by this tradgedy ...

However, I am at a loss how this news item found its way onto the Country Forum with exception to John Williamson (President of the Australian Country Music Association) for which I believe our King of Country Music, Mr Keith Urban has a long association ...

Perhaps they could negotiate the penning of a country music single that sales go towards assisting the fundraising efforts of the township of Beaconsfield.

That's the true blue Aussie Spirit!!

Australia viewed the interview from Good Morning America on our news channels tonight ... The interviewer (Diane Sawyer) was a little misguided and obviously uninformed with regard to her questions but Brant and Todd endeavoured to them as best they could with honesty and clarity ...

Some of the miners from Beaconsfield have been offered redundancy packages ... Surely this will be detrimental to the township's future ...
