The main thing that slows SA from advancing is our lack of representation in Parliament and the only thing that will increase that is a larger population.

Both Gillard & Abbott are "rotten to the core" in my honest opinion.

Well, it was probably doomed from the start, just pumped up by media Mike. The copper is radioactive, I read and the process of removing that seems to be either too expensive or did not stand up in a last round of trials, which would have made the whole announcement premature.

How often have we thought that one thing would work, but in practice we experienced a rude awakening. Now that seems to have happened to BHP. Kloppers should have told media Mike that it was too early. Now we've had all this hype and a deflation.

Good luck in London, Mike. I hope you don't forget that Assange is still an Australian citizen.
