Chevron is con­sid­er­ing go­ing to the High Court af­ter los­ing a Fed­eral Court ap­peal against be­ing forced to pay up to $340 mil­lion to the Aus­tralian Tax­a­tion Of­fice for as­sess­ments from 2004 to 2008.

This is the same group who have in­di­cated it isn’t re­spon­si­ble for any tax un­til around 2027 due to capex off­sets. Yeah, nah, just an­other multi­na­tional re­ceiv­ing pref­er­en­tial treat­ment and spit­ting in the face of Aus­tralian peo­ple. Joan Mike Canny

Yeah the Aus­tralian tax­payer is “hugely dis­ap­pointed too”! When it gets down to plain talk we have some­thing y’all want, so stop try­ing to cheat us. Leanne McGowan

If the Gov­ern­ment had balls it would take their drilling rights off them and give it to an­other com­pany that will pay tax, so what’s the prob­lem? It’s all bull. Mor­gan Chap­man

I think it is about time we na­tion­alised these ar­ro­gant p ***** . Ian Rogers

The Shield-X chal­lenge launched in Perth re­cently calls on peo­ple through­out the world to de­sign a de­vice that can com­mu­ni­cate with any piece of au­ton­o­mous equip­ment with po­ten­tial safety ben­e­fits for au­ton­o­mous mine sites.

Not only do we need a tax on au­to­mated ports we also need to tax au­to­mated trucks and trains. Ef­fec­tively put a tax on any au­to­mated equip­ment that takes a worker’s job. Paul Fer­reira

They don’t want to pay tax, they don’t want to pay roy­al­ties, they don’t want to em­ploy lo­cals and now they don’t want to em­ploy any­one! What a great deal our pollies are mak­ing for our na­tion’s fi­nite re­sources. Adrian Evans
