See thats where you're wrong.

I don't want Gillard and Abbott is worse.
Give me a viable alternative and they'll get my vote
Gillard can't wipe her arse without copping flack from the media and No No Abbott and he is the alternative PM.
It's about time he copped the same sort of scrutiny. When he does he fails miserably

Can Do is Can't is different story. He's just a nasty piece of ****.
Doesn't matter. He won't be Premier after the next election unless they find him a safe seat

And the problem is? Plenty of pro Lib posts in this thread as well.

Time to admit Abbott and the Libs are not a viable alternative unless they come out with some solid, constructive policy. Until then, it's just throwing stone in a glass house.

I did, and I still cant see the angle you are coming from? Not sure the sarcasm is warranted either, just asking your point behind it?

All I am hearing from Abbott is jibber jibber jibber.

The moron has not put up a single policy document as an alternative to Gillards lot!!

He probably wouldn't understand it anyway, he is Australia's stupidist politician and proves it every time he opens his mouth!!

Opposition is supposed to sell themselves as the alternative government, something Tony Abbott is failing miserably at.

The scary thought is that Abbotts lot will replace Gillards lot and we end up with a Federal version of Can Don'ts Queensland or Barrel Offarrells NSW!!

I aint a religious man but God help us if that ever happens!!

It's great to see Tony getting amongst the action Remy [:P}



It's good to see that the government happily allows water licenses to go foreign owners

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/largest-water-licence-goes-to-chinese-buyer/story-fndo317g-1226462762563

AUSTRALIA'S largest water farm will today fall into Chinese hands after the government approved its controversial sale late last night.

Queensland's giant Cubbie Station will be sold for marginally less than the mooted $300 million price tag to one of China's leading textile producers, Shandong Ruyi.

The Foreign Investment Review Board is believed to have recommended to the federal government that the sale be allowed, with an announcement due today.

The Cubbie property holds the largest water licence in Australia and has long been the centre of dispute over water rights for NSW farmers along the Murray Darling Basin.

Cubbie Station, a collection of three vast properties with interconnected dams that can hold up to 539 billion litres of water - more than Sydney Harbour - had racked up $320 million in debt by the time administrators were called in three years ago.


The $320 million cotton station has been under administration for three years with the government unable to find an Australian buyer.

However, concerns have been raised whether the plant will continue to be Australian-managed and there is about 20 per cent Australian equity in the Shandong Ruyi-backed consortium.

The 96,000ha Cubbie cotton plant, Australia's largest cotton grower, is set for a bumper year with its vast dams still brimming after two seasons of good rain.

With cotton prices easing from an average of $550 a bale last year to $400, the plant's sale for a price near $300 million is a tidy improvement on the $220 million price originally floated when put on the market in 2009.

Treasurer Wayne Swan last night insisted the acquisition of Cubbie Group would not impact on water management arrangements, as the company would remain subject to state and Commonwealth regulations.

None of the parties to the deal would comment yesterday but the National Party's Senate leader Barnaby Joyce has led opposition to the sale, calling on the FIRB to block it.

Mr Joyce argued that because the property produces 10 per cent of Australia's cotton crop and has massive irrigation entitlements attached to it, Cubbie is a strategic asset that should not be sold.

Cubbie chairman Keith de Lacy has said there was nothing wrong with it going to a Chinese buyer provided the local management was kept.

Perhaps Barnaby should have got some of the National parties rich benefactors to by Cubbie!!

Whats that Barnaby, its a bottom-less pit of good money after bad sinking with its profits??

Cubbie has been a basket case, has been since its inception.

Good on the Chinese, perhaps they can do what all others before couldn't, make it work!!

Yep! Exceedingly inefficient crop to grow in that area of Australia, and that massive station takes water from honest to god small land holders.
