I usually like Bob Brown of the Greens party BUT this morning I heard him speak like all Eastern State politicians. He wants to use the Resources Rent tax to fund a high speed train. Great, I love fast trains but where? Hobart to Davenport? Melbourne to Sydney? Or Perth to Port Hedland and past many of the mining towns where the wealth of minerals and hard working Western Australians come from. Over lunch at Darlington Winery Estate a couple of weeks ago, an artist friend told me that gold from the Western Australian gold rush at the turn of the century, funded the building of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Now eastern stater politicians want to increase the robbery rate from Western Australia for fast trains over there!

To you Bob and your eastern state claim jumping cattle rustler colleagues: Cut your Tasmainian resources down to fund your own train. Viva the republic of WA.
