    Yep, they'll show just how fast you can destroy a countries economy for nothing. Well nothing but enriching those who passed the tax. They'll do quite nicely, till they get voted out and that BS recinded.

    Don't worry, the current leader and probably the government will fall over this.

    Yes they will. And rightly so. They placed personal finance above the will of the people and above common sense. They deserve to lose and they also deserve to spend some time in prison.

    I don't think it was a decision based on venal motives or personal gain, Australia is one of least politically corrupt countries in the world.

    It's based on political decisions - Australia wants to be acknowledged as a world leader but I think this will be one step too far ahead of the people.
