Well benfti, Qld is a great place to visit and FNQ in winter is among the best places on Earth.
But the politics is a basket case and I commend you come home and get the Fark out of there. I have dealt with Qld Labor people for 40 years, and find most hard to support and harder to like. Bill Hayden was about the only one I could stomach or trust.
ADANI should be scrapped, and all the reviews I have done fail to show how it is viable. The coal quality is average the extraction costs are high and the capital infrastructure needs are massive. Without State funding it is very marginal, without the Feds $1 billion rail link it is impossible.
It all makes little sense, as coal prices are down, markets are contracting and coal miners around the world are not investing.
My conclusion is that it will never happen.
But politics is a weird beast; LNP is not driven by logic and love big dollar numbers that swell the balance sheet, Labor is driven by ideology of workers jobs with massive pressure from AWU and others.
If Qld voters had a brain, they would all vote for the Greens in this election, and slap down both LNP and Labor. But we both know that grey matter is scarce up North. Thank God you have bananas and nice beaches.
