It is obvious that Kevin Rudd and Wayne Swan are buying votes in broken down Eastern States/Labor States who squander monies the same as the Federal Labor Government does. Without WA financing the rest of Australia, who knows what the outstanding debt would be by Kevin and his Merry Band of Thieves!

The federal budget allocation for Oakajee is excellent news - at the same time it is high time that all levels of govt and stakeholders make it clear the port is being developed not just based on iron ore being able to support a business case to spend $4 billion, but also possible uranium exports in the medium term, as one finds it hard to fathom how three mid-tier iron ore miners - especially with possible magentite and not hematite projects - can get this $4 billion investment off the ground.
