Default Re: Adani's Coal Extraction Nightmare

Interesting move:

Palaszczuk says she will veto federal Adani loan as she accuses LNP of 'smear'

Quote:
The Queensland government will veto Adani’s application for a $1bn commonwealth loan to build a rail line for its massive Carmichael mine, Annastacia Palaszczuk has said.

...

The move will be a heavy blow to the Indian mining giant’s attempt to win finance in China for the controversial coalmine, but puts the state Labor government on the right side of opinion polls on the issue.
Perhaps a more immediate question is whether she'll get re-elected, get out of caretaker mode, with enough of a mandate to implement this commitment.
