    Never mind we're in the best position (geologically) to store nuclear waste and, ah to hell with it, there's a bunch of reasons why we should be nuclear but won't be for the foreseeable future but for the small-minded, risk-averse electorate we have to work with. Almost pointless even talking about it.
    Australia should be processing far more of their natural resources

    It's an absolute joke that we export raw materials and import the processed product

    In other news, do you guys realise that some mining companies are receiving permission to bring in foreign labour when approvals are granted for new mines?

    This is not skilled labour either, just your garden variety Chinese/Indian that needs a job

    Didnt realise that Oz has a zero unemployment rate

    It's already up now you fool. Go to the main Q&A page and click the play button. Then fast forward around 35:30 minutes in or so.

    His question is only read out ftr. You don't see his ugly mug.

    The great man is claiming it's because he didn't have a haircut, but we all know it's because he's still getting zits at the age of 40+

    Haha Burgey, great question.

    What the heck is going on there?

    That is very, very odd.

    Like me saying I'll challenge Gillard, though I don't have a seat, but she can keep being PM til I get one.

    Granted, it would be a much better idea for someone in a safe seat to resign and Campbell to get in to Parliament in the next few months, challenge for the leadership (and win) and then fight the next election as leader.

    But, as untidy as this is, I think it will work.

    Even post-floods, LNP was leading 55/45.

    Newman will only improve on that.

    People are aching for a credible alternative. He's a recognisable face, and a credible leader.
