Default 2006 Australian gvt spent 24 bil. on overseas but spent "nothing" on Aussie Telecommunication?

I like the remark from Strikealite in thread
http://groups.google.com/group/aus.c...c0f8024b993158

>>As long as coonan and howard can get coverage from
>>parliament house to the airport in canberra............


This is exactly what I am talking about.

Howard spend 24 millions Au$$$ in 2006 on war somewhere
and during that time Telstra Mobile is the worst network in the world.

War cost a **** lot of money,(look at history)
during that time the poor ******* at home can starve?

Who are the friends and ennemies?

Umm, why should the Aust govt spend anything on upgrading Tel$tra's network?
They are a shareholder. Are you expecting the OTHER shareholders to also fund
Tel$tra expansion/upgrading? Nooooo, they - the shareholders - gave Tel$tra
their money for shares in the company. The company makes a friggin huge profit
which it ought to spend on upgrading. Shite, does BHP expect the Aust govt to
fund expansion of their mines? Get a grip!

More fool you.

Even someone as stupid as you two should have noticed that pollys do
have an electorate they do spend so time in, so its just a tad unlikely
that they only care about the coverage while they are in canberra.

Thanks for that completely superfluous proof that you have
never ever had a ****ing clue about anything at all, ever.

What does John Howard and Telstra Mobile have to do with each other?

Lots of private companies are out there seeking government funding for
developmental and expansion purposes.

For example the mob that I work for is looking for federal funding to
help install some new technology. Now, to be eligible for this funding
the company and its related entities need to comply with the building
construction industry code of practice AND the Workchoices legislation.

We're going through EBA negotiations at the moment, and we've been
presented with this. The company wants the federal (taxpayers') funding.
Therefore our next EBA needs to comply with Workchoices and the Building
Code, even though it's not a construction company.

Is this right? Should a foreign owned multinational be able to dip into
the taxpayer pockets? Remember that all its profits go offshore, and
that it has the usual tax minimisation structures in place.

So, should the unions, and hence, its members, the employees work to
help comply with the two pieces of legislation and code, or should they
tell the company to get stuffed and go for whatever they can get under
the existing rules? And tell it to use its own money for investment in
its company?

That's the question that's facing the employees at the moment.
