  • Disgrace what govt are doing with 457 visa holders looking to charge $4k per child for public education....they pay same tax, not free loading and the goalposts have been moved. Invited and encouraged by govt to come to WA and most of them on same salary as Aussie citizens...shame on you Barnett as it stinks of economy mismanagement and add on other attacks on education

  • The following is from a full page add - Canning Times 3 Sept 2013.

    The City of Canning is preparing a submission to the Local Government Authority Board responding to proposed boundary changes. We will be making Our Submission by October 4.

    My observations are:

    The City of Canning is the ratepayers, who have no say in the submission as the Commissioner and the Premier will not listen to them.

    This make the process undemocratic and disenfranchises the ratepayers.

    Mr Barnett does not care any way.

    We are yet to see a cost analysis listing assets and liabilities of the proposed merger and the ratepayer are being treated like mushroom.

    Like the Premier and the Commissioner, the whole Canning/Gosnells merger proposal is an utter disgrace.

  • Oh come on Premier!

    You can't seriously believe that we accept the decision to can the rapid bus network for Ellenbrook was based on it being uneconomical and not a good use of money? What a crock of politics!

    If it was too costly then that should have been brought up at the early stages of costings and canned well before the election campaign.

    There were animations of the proposed routes, bus mock ups and media releases ready to go. That doesn't happen until it is ticked off by senior bureaucrats or the minister.

    Or perhaps your ministries have their due diligence ass about face on million dollar projects.

    When are you going to roll out the new ministerial position of Minister for Bulltish!

    Or is that something that is just part of the role of Premier.

  • I thought Rudd & Gillard were 2 of the most Arrogant of our current Politicians until I started listening to 'Emperor' Barnett.
    On a scale of 1-10 he rates a 12.
    As to Deception he has a similar rating. As a Deception Detection specialist I have had many a giggle over some of the current Politicians 'Promises'
    I never followed Politics in my life but as practise for my Profession I find their utterances a great source of research into 'Spin'

  • Emperor Barnett says he's merging councils, forcing them, claiming its to provide better services for communities. Better libraries,pools, community events etc. As a resident in Kwinana,who's council and community oppose a merger, we are experiencing rapid growth and development,from commercial and residential constructions to shopping centres,to playgrounds and a library, our new one,Darius Wells, which he has just attended and led a liberal function. The list goes on. We've many community events and fetes and fairs. We're a close community spirited city. All things he mentions he's doing it for arent what we need. We already have it. We fear we will lose what we already have an abundance of if mergers take place, as he dictates they will.
    I know council has worked tirelessly preparing detailed submissions why we won't benefit from mergers. And why we should stand alone.
    Clearly demonstrating our strong economy, growth and progress mapped well into the future. Council has fought hard processes and submissions over a long period. Its more than arguable he can say we need help. We quite simply and obviously don't. Appears our submissions have not been considered at all.
    We are NOT one of the councils he says need to amalgamate for survival of services into the future and for benefit of communities.
    Appears reasons stated its being done to be false, as those who are strong financially and in growth, services and community spirit and events, are being forced to do so.
    Quite simply, the requirement for the necessity of the reforms, to benefit communities, does not ring true in our City of Kwinana.
    We dont need help. There's other motives and agendas at play in this issue. But that's a different story entirely.

  • I seldom write remarks, however i did a few searching and wound up here Paul Murray and the Premier.

    And I do have some questions for you if you usually do not mind.

    Could it be simply me or does it look like some of these responses appear like
    they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you
    have to post. Would you list of every one of all your
    public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin
    profile?
