Politics. Not good. Economics. Sound. Mining no creativity JUST DIG. Reality all Australians own Australia. Not just some greedy fat cat mining exec.

Tax mining. Spread wealth. Incentivize cleaner forms of energy.

Meanwhile my country US gives tax breaks to oil companies and 50 million have no health insurance.

Julia you are one awesome bitch. Wish you were American.

You're such an IDIOT Humbert.
If mining was "just dig" then other nations could do what we do.
But they can't.
They don't have the technology.
Mining only accounts for 5% of Australia's GDP anyway.
Julia is not "one awesome bitch". She's a Communist pinhead soon to be removed from office.

America would be a smoking crater if Julia was in charge of it.

You only say you like her because our whole country hates her anyway, because you are a troll first and foremost.

If the Government does not succeed in turning its budget to surplus the Police will use their Tazers on Innocent people walking the street to make someone pay.
