Cormann’s cringeworthy Comcar comments
Finance Minister Mathias Cormann says he was trying to make a light hearted comment when he said changing the colour of the new Comcars from white to grey “reflects a bit of a colonial past that we’ve moved on from.”
Oliver Peterson spoke with WA Motor Trades Association CEO Stephen Moir about the popularity of white cars.
Full statement from Mathias Corman below:
“It was a clumsy attempt at a light hearted comment which I regret.
“The colour of the COMCAR fleet was changed from white to dark grey because it was felt that colour provided for a more contemporary looking fleet, which better aligned with vehicles from other agencies supporting Guest of Government services and major events programs and because it is expected to provide good resale opportunities at the end of the lease.”
