BIG MONEY BACKS THE COALITION--WHY? BECAUSE THEY KNOW WHICH BACK TO SCRATCH.


THEY INVEST, THEY DON'T DONATE
DO YOU REALISE WHY THEY INVEST
IN THE COALITION
BECAUSE THEY OWN THEM

Comparing the workers to the power of these giants is laughable!

MINING companies and mining industry associations spent more than $8 million on political campaigning during the election year of 2010-11, much of it donated direct to the Liberal and National parties.

This comes on top of $22 million spent the previous financial year on donations and campaigning against the proposed resource super profits tax.

The Minerals Council of Australia and the Association of Mining and Exploration Companies spent more than $5 million on what the commission defined as the "broadcast of political matter".

Queensland magnate Clive Palmer companies is believed to have sent $959,000 to the Liberal and National parties.



Queensland Nickel was the largest individual donor to the Liberal Party with $500,000. The commission's figures appear to show no mining dollars going to Labor.

British American Tobacco and Philip Morris sent a combined $264,000 to Coalition parties.

The Alliance of Australian Retailers, funded by Philip Morris, Imperial Tobacco and British American Tobacco, spent $9 million on political ads. Imperial Tobacco and Phillip Morris spent another $4.7 million.

Federal Labor reported all donations above $1000, while the Liberals have only reported those above the legal threshold of $12,500.

IF IT SOUND LIKE A ELEPHANT
 AND
 LOOKS LIKE AN ELEPHANT
IT'S
 A BLOODY!  ELEPHANT.
