We really are a pack of wankers!

And I mean that with utmost sincerity. 🙂 We have a major debate, pages and pages of media commentary and a massive advertising campaign from the mining companies over the Mining Super  Profits Tax….and it still isn’t resolved. Where-as in Britain the government just says ‘ hey, you oil  and gas companies are making a lot of money from a resource owned by all of us so we are going to take some more money off you’….and they just do it. Well, actually, if you read this article it appears that they did it and then told the oil and gas people.

I’m sure the oil and gas people will piss and moan about it but it’s  a lot harder to do something about a tax once it is in me thinks. A lesson for our government  maybe?
