Want to know about the government's Resource Super Profits tax?

Don't try looking on any government websites. References to it have been expunged. Labor loves memory holes as much as the Coalition.

Which is a disgrace as far as Labor is concerned. Labor is in government. Gov.au sites should not airbrush history.

So I'll help out.

Here's the tax you are meant to think never was:

Peter - might be about caretaker mode: see http://australia.gov.au/

In the period preceding an election, the Australian Government assumes a caretaker role.
Some Government Initiatives have been removed from our homepage. Those that appear have received bi-partisan approval for their continuation.

A reasonable idea A, But it vanished the day after Gillard announced the new compromise that neutered it.

I must check out the National Library's Pandora archive. I hope it at least has it.

If so that might mean it's available in only 2 places, neither easy to find.

I agree that in some situations, one should expect more of the party that is in government.

This is why I reject the notion that the rough treatment of Kevin Rudd is somehow comparable to the rough treatment of Malcolm Turnbull.

It is the role of the oposition to identify the strongest candidate, often through trial and error!

Sorry for straying off topic.
