Tips and rumours

Adani launches ad offensive ... more garbage pamphlets ... carn the Tiges (a few hours late) ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Adani's spin game. No one from Indian mining company Adani appeared on last night's episode of Four Corners, which delved into its business dealings both in India at home, with the company choosing instead to give a written statement. Four Corners host Sarah Ferguson says the program made requests over a number of weeks to the company. Instead of fronting up to a journo, the company has made an interesting public relations move -- sponsoring tweets showing up in Australians' feeds during the time the program aired, as well as an advertisement played during the NRL grand final (a lot of North Queensland viewers would be tuning in to see the Cowboys). Seen any other interesting Adani ploys to get in our good books? Drop us a line.

    The Four Corners expose of Adani (by Stephen Long) was fascinating & more grim than I’d anticipated. My hope was that it would prompt Oz taxpayers to put pressure on the Qld & federal governments to justify their proposed largesse to this foreign company & re-assess the business risk.

    Unfortunately the news is completely dominated by another mass shooting in the USA – the Adani deal (potential scam?) will impact on us whereas the Vegas shooting is not relevant to our country. Instead of taking live feeds of the Vegas aftermath & showing endless repeats of yesterday’s footage Oz media should prioritise local matters.

    “Adani”? If any of that is true, what ever happened to “due diligence” not least by government? The Limited News Party (federal and state) and the state Labor government want to sign us up to that sort of risk, with those sort of players – they want to gamble with our chips?
    Then if/when (check the form) the deal goes tits-up who are they going to blame …… while expecting to get another go at government?

    None so deaf as those already bought – the only honest pollies.
