Comment on Giles, Conlan and Lambley snub Mbantua Festival by Nimby.

I work it out that for $2m for 15000 visitors, $133.33 per person would need to be reaped to recover that outlay. That does not take into account the cut from taxes.
So, was it a net profit – or did it rely on taxpayer handouts?
Be honest.

Uranium oxide is at a low and the mining industry in general is likely in the process of an interim decline.
This means that key personnel and soon, mining logistics, should be purchased relatively cheaply.
It’s a little early and more of a reconnoitre, a toe in the water.

@ Sandy: I agree, the ABC is more commie than comedy. The truth cannot be told in all its glory as it is probably offensive (and funny).
The ABC would be pitiable, but its our money.
Let’s make it pay for view. The results will be very funny indeed 🙂
