I don't know what someone has to do to get a question in this place. The portfolio appears to be of interest. But I don't know what it is, I don't know what it will take for those opposite to realise that it is not outrageous for the Australian workforce to want a share of profits that happen in Australia. It is not outrageous for the Australian workers to see projects, to see businesses in Australia doing well, and to ask at the same time why should they be constantly falling behind? There is nothing wrong with the Australian workforce believing that they should have a better chance of keeping up with what is happening in expenses in this country.
