Why can't we have an Australian Government refinery. Then we process the oil that Australia extracts from oil drilling rigs, for our own needs. Shell have the idea that they can import diesel, mine for coal seam gas, export all of the raw materials and then sell the lot back to us.
That's business. Three stages of Multiple Intelligences. The emotive, practical and intellectual. Which one do we choose Australia. Get emotional about Shell the oil and the layoffs or develop a domestic oil processing for our domestic use.
