Okay, we’ve established a similarity between John Howard and Montgomery Burns. The main challenger to the Liberal leadership is Peter Costello.
Can we relate Costello to a Simpsons character? Ask someone associated with the mining industry and they might well draw an association between Peter Costello and Homer Simpson.
It’s folklore in the Goldfields that Costello sold much of Australia’s gold reserves at a ridiculously low price because he thought the time was right, yet he continues to commentate on commodity price issues. Doh!
Flow-through shares. Does Costello know what they are or is he indoctrinated by his department to milk the mining cow until it has nothing more to give?
