This week we are joined on the Strictly Boardroom column by local political consultant, Ian Radisich, to discuss the proposed ‘mining tax’ put forward as a policy by the Nationals Party for the upcoming elections here in Western Australia.

The mining sector is obviously not happy with this, however, we thought this issue deserved some more critical analysis.

The article is available through for subscribers and is entitled: “Iron ore minerals policy – give Grylls a break!” or get in touch with me for a copy.

For keen followers of the Strictly Boardroom column, our book “Strictly (Mining) Boardroom Volume II: A Practitioners Guide for Next Generation Directors” was published last year and is available as a paperback or e-book from Major Street Publishing or Amazon.
