LEADER: Newspoll puts WA Labor, under leader Mark McGowan, ahead of the government in the two-party preferred vote, 52 per cent to 48 cent.

Poll plunge turns the screw

With their leaders unpopular, and trailing in the polls, the governments in Perth and Canberra are banking on getting it right in their May budgets.

There is no comparison between Tony Abbotts Government which is a breath of fresh air turning around Australia's economics and Colin Barnetts State Government always going for the most expensive option in solving problems and the worst state government I've seen in watching politics in 50 years. Take for example its steadfast refusal to look at the latest Commuter car technology to solve congestion problems which could save the State into the $billions instead of buying votes in unnecessary infrastructure projects which still wont address the cause of the congestion problems ie we are driving much bigger cars than we need to which the Commuter car being less than one metre wide and can therefore fit two to a standard road lane, does. It's beyond belief the government ignoring this technology.
