  PM - Govt makes way for NT nuclear waste plans
NIGEL SCULLION: Well look, I have to say a number of Australians can remember very well when Commonwealth law overrode the Franklin Dam issue, and there didn't seem to be quite the same focus on state rights at that time, because it was all a pretty sexy issue to support.
NIGEL SCULLION: Well, I'm not sure whether I'd have got more votes or not, but it's continued to be put to me that if somehow if you cross the floor and take on Government you're an overnight hero and everybody supports you.
NIGEL SCULLION: Indeed I am, but I don't believe it's going to go on their land, and I don't believe they should tell the Northern Land Council and Aboriginals from the northern end of north Australia how they should run their business, and how they should use their land.
