Ian Verrender today writing in The Age defended the Federal Government's attack on mining today by claiming Australia is a ''tax haven'' for miners. He justified the introduction of a mining tax by pointing out all new mining exploration in Namibia will be state owned. He also pointed out in that in Zimbabwe the insane dictator Robert Mugabe is bringing in new draconian measures to curb wealth generation for his starving nation. Another one if Ian's model countries is global scam-haven Nigeria.
So, Ian, is this all part of a scheme to nationalize mining?
