I am a big fan of Barnett. He is the first one to stick up for us in decades, unfortunately some of his companions are somewhere between just outright weird and humiliating (the seat sniffer) and "politics as usual". Politicians seem to hate good news. Do not expect rivers of gold means either a) They are too incompetent to keep it up or to stop Canberra from giving it all to Melbourne, or b) they want to spend it on their own pet projects and not return it in some fashion to the people of the state. Australians, and Western Australians in particular, have trusted their Governments implicitly since Federation. But the past thirty years have proved to me at least that our Government is definitely not to be trusted. Against this backdrop of deceit and double dealing why should we just sit back and let this character pull the wool over our eyes?
