Guys remain firm. Not even the public is for the Port Sale. Dr Nahan needs his hear examined. I live in Perth and most people here are going to vote against Liberals all because of such issues and the mess he has caused. You cant trust I guys who has put us in debt of billions.

An interesting read however the statement made that "the CBH Board has no right to refuse to allow AGC into its books" is unbelievable. Why would any business in their right mind let a competitor view their confidential books? The other interesting comment was about growers not trusting the CBH Board to review the structure. If this is the case why did WA farmers vote their board members back in? It sounds like fun times ahead in the West.
AGC director Brad Jones has identified this as a crucial market opportunity for CBH with feedlot demand in Asia operating 24/7 7 days a week. This helps avoid the usual CBH shipping and logistics bottleneck in trying to export a wheat crop in the first 6 months of the year.

Oh yes Mr Nahan, and all your "safeguards" will work just as well as they do with our privatised rail network. That gave us 300% higher rail charges than the east coast. Tell us another fairy tale.

Cropping

Great to see a home grown success story ( no Chinese investment needed!)

Perhaps they should also consult on returning the $100 million slush fund the board is sitting on back to the 16000 members.
If Andrew Weidemann and John Eastburn are so keen on co operatives why were they so determined to remove growers from the board of AWB Ltd?!
Perhaps they have seen the error of their ways but unfortunately getting back to where we were will be a real struggle and there will probably have to be complete market failure for it to occur.

Mr Preston have u any independent (not done by u or people in the GM industry) Aust'n field research studies into Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) of the added roundup tolerance gene? if this gene was transferred back into soil from GM plants, could it then be transferred to any weed that grows nearby via HGT? if so, aren't the risks too great that roundup ready crops will heighten the likelihood of widespread resistance to roundup, our most effective post patent herbicide? Proof already exists of cross pollination of this gene, has this research been done for HGT.

Yes Mick cropping certainly is risky and the loss of the wheat export single desk transferred unmanageable risk onto producer's balance sheets.

Dont the Chinese fund their projects with their own money and not borrowed money from overseas banks? If so, why are we mugs who let private banks and corporates pick us off by limiting us to their money? Show some some guts govt and take back control of our money system, then we wont have to sell our productive assets to pay for your lack of efficiency.

Behold the birth of another bureaucracy created out of thin air by the government.Another stone tied around the neck of the taxpayer.
How much is coming through cracks in paddocks ?

Mirabella told the truth. Obviouslty the Wangarrata hospital board knew but chose not the pursue the matter with the new member McGowan. A lack of confidence that has taken three years to surface. Windsor should toughen up and stop playing the blame game . Who would want a sook for a member

Livestock

Shame Barnaby, we need profitability not gimmicks. This is at least 100 years behind the game.
