Adani & Government Complicity or Stupidity!

It’s somewhat difficult to understand, especially from a lay persons point of view, why Australia’s Federal and Queensland’s State Government are even considering allowing a company under investigation on fraud and environmental destruction charges to borrow tax payers money to the value of 1 Billion dollars when banks and private funding sources have refused to provide finance for Adani’s proposed Carmichael Coal project in Queensland’s Galilee Basin.
