Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)

From Whyalla to Townsville – nationalise the lot

In Whyalla thousands of steel making jobs are at risk because Arrium bought iron ore mines at the top of the market. There is also an oversupply of steel on the market, the classic Marxist overproduction starting to play out.

In Townsville, Clive Palmer’s Queensland Nickel has closed down and thrown hundreds of workers on the scrap heap of unemployment all because Palmer, an elected member of Parliament, shifts money around to support his political career, his Dinosaur Park or whatever bizarre project pops into his head. The price of nickel has also collapsed.

In Britain, Tata Steel’s Port Talbot steel works is closing down and Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn has called on the Cameron government to intervene to keep the plant open and 15,000 workers employed.

There is no Jeremy Corbyn in the ranks of the Australian Labor Party.

Turnbull Government intervention could save the Whyalla steel works and the Queensland Nickel plant in Townsville. By occupying the plants workers could put nationalisation on the agenda.
