As I was saying, we have Beijing Bob out there who tweeted this week and said he's proud to have played any kind of role in killing the project. I doubt that the former New South Wales Labor Premier has spoken to any of the 200 people who are going to lose their job. He is proud. He is proud of doing that. Those are the kinds of people the Labor Party are now teaming up with. All the roads seem to lead in same direction for the Labor Party at the moment. Former New South Wales Premier Bob Carr is speaking as part of leading the Australia-China Relations Institute. Guess who set up the Australia-China Relations Institute? Mr Huang Xiangmo gave Mr Carr a $1.8 million donation to set up the Australia-China Relations Institute. So you've got Shanghai Sam, Beijing Bob and Premier Palaszczuk all teaming up in a Labor-Greens team to stop jobs in North Queensland. The people of North Queensland now realise who is on their side to give them a job, who is on their side to give them a livelihood. It's over here in the Liberal-National Party. The other side have made their decision. They're teaming up with the Greens to stop these jobs in North Queensland.
