More trouble down pit

The Australian, 15 December 2010

Remember way back in the halcyon first weeks of her reign when Julia sorted out the mining billionaires who are not quite as convinced about the inevitability of taxes as Mark Twain (or in fact any other non-billionaires)?

Well, it looks like somebody forgot to specify exactly what the word “all” means in relation to state mining royalties which has made things a bit awkward, and we all know how laid back state governments are when it comes to getting their cut of the profits. One suspects it will (inevitably) be the non-billionaire taxpayers who’ll be picking up the tab.
