Well, what do you know? Adan’is Carmichael mine may be funded by taxpayers’ millions, as I understand the banks are pulling out.
In SMH (Sep. 23) new federal resources minister Josh Frydenberg said he was ‘considering using government money to fund the rail line of Adani’s project.’
This would lead to dredging the Great Barrier Reef – irrevocably lost.
Our governments seem determined to allow foreigners to destroy our country. Who gains? ‘Oh, there’ll be thousands of Australian jobs.’ 457’s more likely. And afterwards?
We need a government for Australians. Come on, Malcolm, you promised to be different.

The Reef IS NOT BEING DREDGED. Please get your facts right before preaching to everyone. I live in this part of the world and it is amazing and beautiful. The current port has been running almost 30yrs without an issue, and this is only an expansion on what is already there. Think about it, without coal we would have no computers, houses, cars amongst many other items we use daily. Please get the full story, even visit the beautiful town of Bowen with its pristine 8 beaches all only 20mins from the current port at Abbot Point.
