Re: The Gas Rush- Four Corners

What disturbs me most about the plight these property owners now face, is that even voting a change in Government means more of the same. Both major party's focus on the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ and as we saw from Tony Abbott at the last election, the mining company $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$...

It will take some creative thinking to minimize the losses. I had heard of banana leaf paper sometime ago ....perhaps the Qld banana croppers already s...
