I would like to talk about the mining tax in the 17 seconds I have left. Getting something through this parliament with a Green-Labor-Independent alliance is hardly splitting the atom. It is going to be very interesting to see exactly how much financial trouble this crowd gets us into, considering that this mining tax is actually going to cost us money. It is actually going to send us out the back door.
