lets not just blame the GOM for this, governments of all varieties around the world are facing budget defecits, its just the GOM hasn't been able to borrow money/debt due to their economic viability. If the GOM could turn on the printing press like the USA they would, but that hasn't been invented yet. The position by RIO to halt all further development is the right approach, you signed an agreement now learn to live with the economic benefits that this 7 plus billion dollar investment has created. Not only that the education of your people will benefit future generations to come.

Hey Dems ...... Class is in and you're about to be schooled. RIO wrote off 16 plus billion in bad investments they can afford to wait
