I think she (Gina) loves her kids, but obviously they are spoilt brats who (according to her) have made little effort to earn a crust of their own back. She is quite aware if they get their hands on granddads money they will squander it.
So what if they do? It's theirs to squander if they so wish and whether or not they get that money, how will they be any better off by not having access to it? But if they do get it and squander it then they will have no-one to blame but themselves and they can stew over that, but if they don't get the money they will have no chance to screw their opportunity or to benefit from it either.

The main point however, is that Reinhart is controlling and miserley and she won't even give her kids what should legally be theirs.

what do you think the poll result would have been?

Do you think the Aboriginals want you here? Are you going to leave in order to appease them?

I think she wants to see evidence they should earn it. I agree with her that the money should remain in a trust till then. Perhaps the great grand kids can get it.

You had a look at Australia on google Maps?
We are a desert, we have a completely different eco-system to the states and a VERY DELICATE ONE, for all your pro carbon tax rants Humbert you sure are a retard, we already have cities running out of water, if it wasn't for the last couple of years we WOULD have run out of water, Australia is on its logical limit of human expansion, anymore will have huge detrimental effects on our wildlife and environment, hell its already being messed up now, if we had double the people there wouldn't be much hope for it.
Desalination plants and nuclear energy ?

It's people looking for a scape goat that are clueless. Australia could easily double it's population .

I have always hated when people adopt this Greens party nonsense. When the reality is completely different.

It's not all nonsense, only extremists pick one ideology and stick to it unflinching and being blind to all else, the human species impact on this planet is undeniable, we're a plague at the moment and that has nothing to do with the Greens party, Easter Island is an example of what comes when a species over consumes, sure desalination plants and nuclear energy will help increase population, it will also pack more people along our overpopulated coastlines and destroy more fragile habitats of our unique landscape, what do we need to double our population for seriously? What will cramming more people into our green strips accomplish? A slum shithole like India?

There is nothing better about population increase, only less room and more consumption.

And I'm an avid Greens hater, but I'm not blind to the human plague at the moment.

Then what about those who were here before our 'Aborigines'? Did they get a vote as to whether they wanted these Aborigines to come?

Pitbull is a 3rd world import, that's their mentality & the reason they flee from their failed countries like chimps with their a#rses on fire. but unfortunately they're incapable of learning & bring their greedy short sighted mindsets with them.

"There is nothing better about population increase, only less room and more consumption."

Which equals more money.

Look theres no point arguing this because its the reason why people live here.

and there are plenty of countries that do not suffer "overpopulation problems" that have huge populations...

People don't understand that the motivations behind these environmental politics is only to levy another tax. They never do anything to fix problems. The Gov is the most fraudulent enterprise in the country.

Population really is a non issue.

Santa Barbara to San Diego. SoCal has more people than OZ.

New York City Metro Tristate has more people.

GET A GRIP Australia. Quit complaining. WORK and CREATE. Your an English speaking banana republic.
I agree with the Aussies. Have you gone through the area of San Diego to Santa Barbara? I just moved from there. There are took many people in that area, it isn't being taken care of and is starting to show wear and tear. No one is fixing it and no one can afford to clean it up. California is a bourgeoning 3rd World Nation.

I'm anti Carbon tax you tool, but to go as far as to say that humanity has no impact on the environment is just plain retarded, imagine what would happen if you imported 50 million rabbits into Australia, oh wait...

This isn't a political issue to me, I'm against profiteering for fear, but when logic enters its smarter to sustain than to grow, growth can't last forever because there is only so much to consume, and the planet isn't just a magical resource maker.

Money, pitbull you always do the right thing and show what a cloned ideological dick head you are. Anyone with even a billionth of logical thinking can see what population growth is doing to all societies and cultures across the planet. Money certainly isn't saving Europe, nor Asia or the America's. The facts are they are all collapsing under the weight of population pollution social disharmony and corruption. The only countries likely to survive will be those who restrict population and ideological control. so this country doesn't end up like the rest of decaying humanity.

You also display a deep degree of political ignorance, the greens like all political parties have two agenda's on the one subject. One one hand they complain of environmentally degradation and overpopulation, on the other they promoted a massive increase in refugee intakes of up to 1 million a year.

More people, relates to lower over all standards of living and increased poverty and elitism.
