    These are the same liars that went on about the mining tax. They need to be treated with exactly the same grace and charm that they treat government with when the corporation is making plans; How much consultation is there with Government then?

    Do they think we are all like the rat bag ralliers and have memories like goldfish?
    F**k them and all their friends. I have heard enough bullshit to cover the cost of shutting down 2 coal mines and a steelworks and turning it into a carbon tax profit on not being properly consulted.
