"They say they may close down if the carbon tax comes in." "For all our sakes let's hope their address is Bluff, and their threat isn't!" 13 May, 2008

Reference Number: DCDL-0006448

Shows a car driving past a signpost which says 'Comalco - Bluff'. In the background are many overhead power lines. The man in the car says that Comalco has said it may close down if the carbon tax comes in and the woman hopes that their address is Bluff but not their threat. There is a play on the word 'Bluff' as in the place name and also the term used to mean a threat which may be simply a tease. Refers to the fact that Comalco sees the carbon tax as being very bad for its business.
