    STIMULUS: New Project Idea!!!!!

    World’s Biggest & World’s Cleanest Pulp Mill for National Capital. ‘GUNNS LTD rumoured to announce new pulp mill plans beside Lake Burley Griffin’, Company Chairman John Gay announced today.

    Speaking from the back door to Peter Garrett’s office, Mr Gay said he had had strong interest expressed from financial consortia in Woop Woop Land and even from several overseas interests, citing Lend Lease on the Neva Neva, Centre for ExtraTerrestrial Development and others. “We have the answers to the present world problems” said Mr Gay.

    “This is the stimulus that Australia has been looking for”. Mr Gay is off today on one last tour to give investors the chance to buy in NOW!!!

    Informed sources suggest another share offer is imminent, so suggest that Company Directors get in at today’s low price of 76c to beat the subsequent company share price offer of $1:50

    Naaaaaah Darren !
    The majority of the Australian public may not be the sharpest knives in the drawer, however, I don’t believe in any way would they again make such a stupid move, and if it WAS indeed on the cards , I would suggest that Costello think very carefully about a tilt at dislodging Turnbull Post.Haste.
