Oh goody gumdrops! Let me see if I've got this right now......An ex lead singer/environmental activist turned Minister allows an arms dealer to set up shop in a brand new uranium mine and not monitor radioactive plumes galavanting joyously around the Australian water table!!!!!

Driver! Driver please stop this planet, I want to get off now.......
