    Yes, it's called an export tax. Should be on gas too.

    Not having a tax on the exports, is the biggest can kicking excercise in Australian history and will ultimately cause our decline. IMO
    The Royalties scheme, is probably the closest thing we have to a sensible tax on materials, but it isn't much good, if you don't change the price charged from the 1960's.:mad:
    Brendan Grylls in W.A wanted to raise the Royalies on iron ore to $5 per ton, currently it is hardly anything, well he was quickly ejected from his seat by the miners at the next election.:roflmao:
    In reality the only way you will get it in, is if there is a bipartison approach by both political parties, then it has to be addressed.
    Currently both sides don't want to address it, because the one that suggests it, cops the wrath of the mining industry about job loses, well that will become less of a stick as the jobs are being automated anyway.

    As he should.

    Scomo, yet another sellout under pressure from the irrelevant Twitterati.

    The likelihood of another change of PM mid term is zero...

    Dutton will have to wait. Not jump the queue. It's his job to stop queue jumping :)

    Dutton has no chance of leading the LNP in my opinion, he has worse public appeal than Shorten and that is saying something.
    The SMH and ABC are thrashing themselves into a frenzy, but I can't see them being able to keep this on the front page, once winter starts.:2twocents

    Regardless of whether anyone likes ScoMo or not, we need political stability.

    He's the leader of the government but he's not the government as such, we don't have a single person running the show, so changing leader once again would bring more negatives than positives no matter who the replacement is.

    He's stuffed up yes. OK, let's get the show back on the road and get on with it.

    For the record I'd hold the same view if Labor had won the election and it was Shorten under pressure right now. We need stability not a revolving door of PM's. :2twocents

    I agree fellas but the main reason is because to remove the PM the party now needs a two thirds majority vote and there's no way they'll achieve that against a leader who won the unwinnable election.

    They only worry closer to an election. No way they will oust him

    Oh for a Bi-election. A brain death on the Co-alition benches would anyone notice.
    The walking political corpse of Gussy Taylor.
    Wondering why there's an intensive care ambulance parked at the end of that street? There's a sitting government member a few doors down...
    There's a feverish intensity to those prayer breakfasts the jabbering in tongues is shake'n the windows...
    And doing nothing for a nations confidence.

    I think his name was David Elliott(Baulkum hills) ...a man seemingly written out of history. But into Lore: A deraliction A cure A Disgrace. The epitome of the LNP.

    David Elliot is the current NSW Police Minister.

    Any significance in that ?

    Rumpole That's bordering on 'anal'...
    It was the NSW police that utilised the term 'Garrad' for their investigation into one of Gussy Taylors detours to fantasy land, it seems his preferred address.
    Mind you there's a couple from the Pineapple State in here that wish to usurp Taylor from that Urban dictionary discriptor.
