  • Speech - Reflections on the Harvester Judgement
  • As the incoming president of the ALP there’s nothing better than coming to the state where Labor has been most recently – and most resoundingly – re-endorsed as the undisputed natural party of government.

BHP's Singapore tax shield and other tax havens exist to smuggle profits out of Australia.
