WA's share of GST to be slashed again

Western Australia’s share of GST grants will fall to a record low next year, with the state due to get back just 55 per cent of all GST collected here.

The GST review will be influenced by the Federal Government, so it can be sure to produce that confounded SURPLUS. Are the other states, getting part of our share of the GST also contributing out of their now increased GST, to the Queensland floods repair? For goodness sake, bring on the Federal election and get rid of this totally incompetent mob. They have never been able to govern properly in the last 58 years, so how should they be able to now? Even if Rudd wins, how does he think to govern, whilst he is keeping his 'faceless' man in the cabinet?

How is it that the other big mining & resources state, Queensland gets back 98.5% of its GST collected then ? Qld is a Labour state (maybe not for long though) whereas WA is Liberal currently. Funny how the eastern states don't have their gambling revenue included either ! Barnett and Co need to effectively tackle this gross discrimination against WA which seems based on unreasonable, inconsistent and uneven criteria ASAP. WA Secession supporters line up behind me. : )
