Dear Mrs Rinehart,
It was a pleasure to meet you recently in Port Hedland for the 120 year celebrations. Also thank you for the advanced copy of your embargoed speech. The implication of you doing that was not lost on me.

At the shonky builders meeting on Sunday, the Labor Party told the audience they would have an inquiry that would take 12 months and then issue a report. They would make no comment about SAT. Mark McGowan told an economic business meeting yesterday he was going to move a few departments around or together. Nothing about slashing the [...]

“The little recognised requirements of growth centres, can Australia become a growth centre of the world?”
Good morning distinguished guests and all delegates,
Greetings from the Roy Hill berths at Port Hedland. As you can see we have 2 ships in harbour, one almost loaded which will go out tonight and the other which we’re about to start loading which you can see is high in the water.

It is part of Australia’s bush folklore that when the helicopter carrying Chinese magnate Xingfa Ma touched down last year on a muddy Gulf of Carpentaria beach — so Ma could announce he wanted to buy surrounding Wollogorang Station for $47 million — the billionaire had never before visited the remote region.

AUSTRALIA’S richest woman Gina Rinehart has brought together two of the greatest names in the nation’s history and in its development. She has very neatly unified past, present and future.
