Here’s your chance Sid - fight for the Coast by opposing Labor’s job-destroying mining tax

BRADDON MHR Sid Sidebottom has been challenged to demonstrate that he is a fighter for the North- West Coast, as he claims, rather than a Labor apologist , by opposing the Rudd Government’s mining tax-grab.

“Labor’s new mining tax will cost jobs and investment in North-Western Tasmania, but conversely it gives Mr Sidebottom an ideal opportunity to prove he is willing to take a stand for the Coast,” Liberal Senator Stephen Parry said today.

“I call on Mr Sidebottom to today make clear his position on the mining tax-grab.

“If he is not prepared to oppose a tax that will cost jobs and investment in his own electorate, then he should not be surprised when he is criticised for failing to stand up for this region.”
