No matter what we charge as a fee for drilling and cleanup, the gas companies arent going anywhere else.
That's just a flat-out, God's honest, bones of the arse lie. And economically fatuous. What does anybody want with reading one of those? What underestimation of the intelligence of A2Kers is implied by thinking such shite can get past our feet? And fm's whole position rests upon it. i.e. an upturned pyramid of lieling shoots.
fm is charging the Gov with corruption. Which is serious. With lining his pockets and those of his cronies at the expense of the poor, downtrodden, hard working and hard-pressed taxpayer (stop tittering Gladys). And that is exactly how the USA got to where it is. The supreme pinnacle of the evolutionary tree. When there were smoked filled rooms where it was necessary to call the wife to inform her that the meeting was still going on and she should go to bed.
The joke is, and all the evidence supports it, that if fm and his cronies get their hands on any tax it won't be for the benefit of any poor, downtrodden, hard working and hard-pressed taxpayers.
And fm is using that blatant and obvious lie as proof to support his charge against a man who stood before the people and won a vote of confidence. And to insult your intelligence by suggesting that the drilling companies are in the same position, vis-a-vis the State, as a henpecked husband is.
And then predicting that the Gov will be "pitched out" of office in 3 years or so. He might have added "on his neck".
I wonder if fm is picketing the Gov's offices like they were in Wisconsin. Is this a rocking-chair rebellion?
