Yep all fairMining rights in Australia should not be privatised in my opinion. But while the big mining companies donate enough funds regularly to the political campaigns of both major parties that will never change.
I'd imagine that most donations by mining companies to Indigenous Australian organisations and communities are made as calculated business decisions rather than out of the goodness of their hearts.
Some would be as part of a deal to get projects on aboriginal land over the line and others as strategic investments to improve corporate identity.
I know that I'm only stating the obvious.
Obviously she does because look what’s happened and how bad the PR has beenlol clearly she doesn't. Taking her money back & leaving NA to their $8m debt seems to be working fine.
In what world does the person handing out money have to explain themselves let alone their parents?
Obviously she does because look what’s happened and how bad the PR has been
Nothing wrong with putting out the fire with a little statement, doesn’t harm nobody and can do a world of good
Anyways, both parties lose and all could’ve been saved by a statement or meeting with affected parties - good on the Aboriginal player for having principles
Well she reached out to NA for a reason and it backfired in her face so yeah it’s a lossOkay I'm looking and I see:
Hancock Prospecting is still worth about $30 BILLION. It's not a business that needs PR to get the punters in - the ****s buying what she digs up don't give a **** if she harvests Aboriginal babies to dip in hot sauce & swallow whole. It's privately owned so there are no shareholders to keep happy worrying how the market might react to the "bad PR". Also Gina just added back $15m to that enormous wealth.
Netball Australia are still $8m in the hole. Obviously an unsustainable business model. Already in a market that struggles for corporate support they've basically put out a warning to any potential sponsors to be squeaky clean throughout your entire history (which will be judged by today's standards) or face backlash. It won't matter who sponsors them next someone will deepdive that company's history.
If both parties lost I know which loser I'd rather be. How many principles does it take to cover an $8m debt?
Yeah , makes perfect sense to have the national team sponsored by an individual state . Bet the other state associations are excited about it .
It's not really that different to Victoria or WA paying up for an Origin game.Yeah , makes perfect sense to have the national team sponsored by an individual state . Bet the other state associations are excited about it .
We were more segregated by border but we were otherwise pretty free, Vic endured the extensive lockdowns and there were a lot of Victorians saying they felt ostracised from Australia as a whole.WA was more segregated than Vic. Vic left its doors open and kept getting infected by those filthy New South Welshmen
the national team has a sponsor and a state wants to host womens sport on a bigger stage. they want those games in their state?pay for it
the same state govt spent 142 million on the cats footy stadium redevelopment. nary a peep from anyone
I think you will find this move from the Victorian State government is controversial mainly down to it's timing less so the act itself
Considering the desperate state of their public hospital & ambulance service in Victoria where money could have gone - but there's ol Dan with that slimey smirk, look what a good bloke I am everyone throwing your money behind these girls so they don't have to take it from the bad mining lady
