    It's a bit **** with Olympic Dam, as we like every company in SA have had to cut back. We've lost 3 engineers and 20 fitter/sparkies/welders etc who had 2 years of solid work to deliver. WA will take up the slack for now.
    Boom is history as mining contracts

    Lots of distressed cargoes available from Oz atm as buyers are defaulting in the face of falling commodity prices

    Also ery very expensive to raise new capital for expansion or new investment so things are looking to be very tough for industry

    Obviously need to be paying our workers $2/hour.

    She's obviously a great businesswoman, but she either needs a new PR person, or just doesn't listen to them.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Yeah, similar to the "inner city elites/lefties" versus "real Australians in the suburbs" lines a few people use.
