Enough of your whinging miners ! Its funny that people who work in the mines are joining the chorus as if they themselves "own the mines" and its "their own money" to be taxed. Obviously their bosses have got enough money and they are making enough profits to be taxed for the betterment of all Australians, but they are just running false "fear campaigns" and stirring up their employees. Most of the people outside the mining industry are not with you, pay the taxes and shut up !

For those of you non miners out there that are entitled to their opinon, No fear campaigns , no bulling no bribes just common people looking to the future. Wake up and stop looking through rose coloured glasses. We dont all belong to mining. Royalties pay for most of what WA has and you honestly think that the federal government will give us back $2billion from the 40% I dont think so, but thats just my opinion. And last time I looked it was still as free country and we are all free to say what we like. Hell we are even allowed to swear at the law, with in reason.
