Congratulations. No wonder our power costs are going up. A monopoly such as Verve, who cannot supply the States power needs now, must think all their Xmas' have come at once. Oh well WA - Wait Awhile- here we go again!

Why is that the so called "power brokers" (pardon the pun) of this state continue to make such short sighted decisions in relation to growth and progress in our regional areas? I see this as such a backward step regardless of Verve's competitive tender. The Mid West region is crying out for a local power source. But then again nothing surprises me in WA anymore.

Supplying power from the dirty polluting coal-fired power stations of Collie to the Mid West is a good example of the stupidity we've inherited from a Labor and Liberal successive governments. The answer is simple: re-merge Synergy, Verve and Western Power and manage our electricity market properly for the good of Western Australia. The electrical market rules by this very decision prove that it is a complete failure, that defies good logical decisions. How can you have a fair market when the Government owns 90% of it. Worst still, it is increasingly going to hurt us tax payers as this failing market continues to lose money and Government keeps putting the tax payer band-aid on it. The evidence is there for all to see.

With Iluka looking like closing our little town will be left floundering. Young families are leaving town and many houses are up for sale. The hopes of Aviva putting us back in work are diminishing, thanks to our government
