Lashed for his honest answers

Both the Premier and Police Minister have criticised the Police Commissioner for appearing before a parliamentary committee.

The Premier says Police Minister Liza Harvey was right to chastise the Police Commissioner for giving answers at a parliamentary inquiry. Mr Barnett told Paul Murray that the commissioner's testimony to inquiry were out of order and should have been made to the Police Minister.

Blog comments Your Say

  • I really do not get this. Who is Liza (with a Zed, I guess) Harvey but a new "token tame woman" who is, maybe, an administrator with some degree, in some capacity, who is a bespoken mouthpiece to her male liberal betters, and who has little idea, let alone regard for the police?

  • $5.9 million cut from the education budget... no professional development for staff... how do they expect to build staff quality in making our system the strongest in Australia let alone the world? Mr Barnett, another vote lost.

  • It won't happen Carlos as we all remeber the Carpenter, Lawrence, Burke and Gallop governments.

    Have a look at the recent ACT elections, Labor is cursed.

  • Hey Mick, typical of Liberal stooges who don't understand the story and want to usurp the process. Karl was called before a Parliamentary Committee and asked questions that he had to answer. His answers were then published in news stories which new minister Liza Harvey criticised Karl for. Then the man you would hope was across protocols, Colin Barnett, chimed in saying that his new and improved Police Minister was doing the right thing in attacking the states top cop for being honest.

    Grow up Mick and look at the issues with both eyes not just your one Liberal eye.

  • Typical of the labor scum here no understanding of correct protocols. The Commissioner should keep right out of politics no matter his view.

  • I would suggest that come the next election Emperor Barnett will be receiving much more than a clip round the ears from WA voters.
    Funny how they find the money again, but only after the Police Commissioner has gone public. I would trust his judgement on the effects of budget cuts before I would trust any politician.
    If he would not have gone public the money would not have been found. Arrogant so and so's.
