The miners have been negotiating with a handicap, they didn't have a Martin Ferguson or a Julia Gillard PM covering his back.
These two are probably the best negotiators in the country. Martin ex ACTU and Julia ex industrial relations lawyer both well versed in negotiations in the toughest arena.
The miners obviously had never heard of an ambit claim otherwise they would have realised the 40% tax rate was just that, an ambit claim.
Between Martin Ferguson,Wayne Swan and Julia they would have always had a figure of 30% for the tax rate.
The figures given today show that the government had always factored in a 30% tax because the outcome is so close to there original figures.
Miners have learned that Julia Gillard is nothing like Kevin Rudd, why because of her background in the school of hard knocks.
ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL
