New political party to fight mining tax
[quote]A new political party is about to register in Western Australia with the aim of fighting the new mining tax.
Former ALP member Scott Cowans has cut ties with Labor to form the new party WA First, which plans to run three candidates for Senate seats in the coming election.
Mr Cowans says WA subsidises other states and territories to the tune of about $8 billion a year, and is increasingly getting less in return.
He says the only way to protect the interests of Western Australians is to have independent senators.
The party plans to register with the Australian Electoral Commission this week.[/quote]
I wonder who'll get their preferences.
