Government on defensive

The article Freedom Is Now A Sleeper by Joe Poprzeczny (Business News October 19-25) demonstrates that the WA Government is losing its grip on making meaningful legislative changes.

Why is it that it whenever a political party is voted in, it spends its first term reforming and improving what the previous government left behind and spends the remainder of its time in power defending those decisions?

The current WA Government is no different.

It seems to have turned from reformer to defender, unable to break down any of the mistakes that it may have made.

Unable to be flexible enough to reform the bureaucracy which surrounds and protects it.

The fact that the Government is going to all lengths to stop information on something as insignificant as railway sleepers gives added weight to the suggestion that the WA Government appears to be on the defensive.

Some of the deals the Govern-ment seems to be undertaking with private enterprise suggests that it may be reverting to deals not dissimilar to WA Inc days.

The petrochemical plant deal with the Labor Party is not unlike the promise of land for the Okajee Steel Mill to Kingstream.
