WHY WE HAVE A VERY WEAK MINING TAX--AND WHO THEY PAID.


Miners spent $22m to beat resource tax.



THE big miners spent nearly $22 million in the campaign against Labor's mining tax that DECAPITATED Kevin Rudd.
New financial disclosure figures also reveal the Liberal Party continues to reap big sums from tobacco companies.
The returns show Clive Palmer's Mineralogy Pty Ltd was the federal Liberal Party's biggest donor, along with the cashed-up West Australian branch.
The Palmer company handed over $500,000 to the federal party and $100,000 to the WA branch, which in turn funnelled $500,000 into federal coffers.
Mineralogy also donated $55,000 to the Liberal National Party in Queensland.
Tobacco giant Philip Morris made 39 separate donations totalling $146,145 in 2009-10 to the Liberal Party's federal and state branches.
The British American Tobacco made 29 donations totalling $145,035 to the conservative parties.


Now we know who owns the Liberal Party and why they were against the mining tax.


The miners are the new golden goose that lays golden eggs for the party.
