    Land offsets

    Hey mate I do this for a living. All are privately owned and all the mining offsets are strictly off limits unfortunately. Some great country out there but same as other private blocks they're a no go unless you have a reason or know them.

    This Is Absolutely Disgraceful.

    I might just pay no tax next year and claim to help out Australia in other ways. I'll stimulate more jobs by having more money to spend. Big business eithics at a grass roots level. Makes sense to me.

    This Is Absolutely Disgraceful.

    The rhetoric that big companies employ people with the left over cash they saved instead of paying tax is the biggest con of the 21st century. They don't employ more people. They pocket it. Exactly as per the billions they post in profit every year.

    Starter motor

    Thanks mate. I took out as much wiring as I could. I also bought some long handle spanners that I've been meaning to get for a while. Both bolts came out like butter and didn't lose any knuckles. Highly recommend getting a set. Now to dismantle and get the starter working again!
