Since the Barnett Liberal government has already committed $billions in State and Federal funds to major road, rail and Elizabeth Quay projects, why are we expected to support the sale of vital WA state assets such as the Fremantle Port and Western Power? All the short-sighted Barnett government has succeeded to do is to blow most of he proceeds from the long Mining Boom period in a few short years on large Perth-centric projects, with little or no regard to the needs of Regional WA nor to our next generation, which could have benefited from a surplus rather than a deficit caused by short-sighted spending and even shorter-sighted politicians! Let's give credit to the National Party and others for having a stiff back on this issue!

Brian- I think you might be off the money on this, loads of evidence to suggest a sale will push down power prices. We can't afford to stick our heads in the sand as the world changes and networks become less and less valuable. Let's get rid of it asap! Nationals have spent up big on waste but contributed about zero to our great state.
