First week into the campaign and the Libs have run out of ideas! Recycling Norman Moore's thoughtbubbles - or was it an election promise - from the 1990s!

Seems like a good idea to me - but then I always vote liberal

Another education announcement from Minister Collier. Could someone please remind him that he has other ministerial responsibilities, including the single biggest calamity of a portfolio in Energy (actually getting the opportunity to tell him would be a challenge seeing as his secretary is instructed to schedule a maximum of 2 meetings per day). The petty politicking and factional jostling between Barnett and Collier over Energy is having a disastrous effect on forward planning for businesses about the state. But that's ok because Pete has another education announcement to make. I would love to see the tally of his announcements by portfolio.

Why build another university when Perth people can't afford to go to the ones we have!It is impossibel to attend university, study, and have enough money to live. Not to mention the bill you're left with at the end, before you even start earning money... If the Govt want me people to attend university, they need to make it affordable for the average person, not just taregt wealthy International students who pay alot to go there, then take their skills home!
