"If you’ve always doubted the sense of privatising government-owned businesses, vindication is now flowing thick and faster. In many – but not all - cases it’s turned out to be bad idea.

And when we said, "Don't sell"....they didn't listen...what would we know, right! And they're STILL not listening.

The gov't could be making yearly profits and we would be saving money, all proceeds of which would be staying in this country!!!!

Comes with a no kidding response doesn’t it? Businesses don’t tend toward altruism...

Telstra was the problem. They were so corrupt, so indulgent that privatisation was the only option. I worked with a bloke for a while who had been a manager at Telstra. He was such a lazy incompetent crook. it was ridiculous and he had actually cleaned his act up a great deal by that time. He never said a much about it. It was obvious he knew he should be ashamed. But occasionally he would let something slip and it was always something utterly appalling.

We are all in this fight together, we’re here together because we all care about our country and know that water is valuable and we need to protect it. It’s what sustains us all here in this room today. The land and the waterways are in our songs and story lines, our memories and dreaming, it’s in our blood all of us here.

We have the largest, deepest artesian basin in the entire world under almost a quarter of Australia,  I believe it’s the single greatest resource and asset Australia has.
