Thankfully we know that Adani Australia doesn’t have insurance, a contractor, two further Federal Approvals, consent from Traditional Owners or a social license to operate. And it’s still being investigated for illegally drilling into Queensland’s aquifers as we speak.

All signs point to a weakening economy, with the jobs and wages of everyday folk at risk.
