Off the cuff comments always fail. Countries all over the world use alternating current because it is cheaper when surpassing great distances. e.g. Canada, South Africa, South America.
I could go into a detailed engineering explanation for you, but Thomas Edison beat me to it more than 100 years ago.
Mr Katter, your "narrow, selfish interests of the company based in Zurich" statement shows a very micro point of view regarding this industry.

These companies are not charities! But if we keep putting obstacles in their paths, do you think they will just accept these and remain loyal to Australia?
Do you think that they will never think to move their business to countries in Africa with their cheap labour and similar resources?
Companies based in Zurich with mining interests will probably already have mining interests in other countries such as Africa and South America.
It is a relatively simple economic excercise to ramp up one interest and ramp another down.
