The Party has lost interest in the real world, writes Thom Mitchell.

It’s hard to say which came first, George Christensen’s MP’s latest frumpy blog post about the Queensland government’s “dilly-dallying” over Adani’s Carmichael Coal Mine, or reports that the project has been put on hold because nobody wants to finance it.

Christensen’s post isn’t time-stamped, but his latest Tweet-to-action came just under two hours after Daniel Burdon filed this report yesterday for the Queensland Times, suggesting that Adani’s $16 billion mega-mine had been shelved.

The National Party Deputy Whip and Member for Dawson may have been too busy to notice, preparing his latest coal-loving diatribe about the “swag of approvals that are holding up [Adani’s] progress”.

(Eds not: Here ‘progress’, stands in for the construction of the largest open-cut coal mine in the Southern Hemisphere.)
