We asked Kar­ratha res­i­dents what they would like to ask Mal­colm Turnbull if they were given the op­por­tu­nity to speak to him when he came here this week. Some took it more se­ri­ously than oth­ers.

My ques­tion is tax re­form. Why have you walked away from ne­go­ti­a­tions with State Govern­ments on broad­en­ing or in­creas­ing the GST? If the Aus­tralian peo­ple want bet­ter ser­vices then we have to pay for it. You could pro­tect pen­sion­ers and low-in­come earn­ers by ex­empt­ing them from PAYG. Fur­ther­more, you could raise the GST and abol­ish PAYG tax­a­tion. In turn the pop­u­la­tion would have more in­come to spend at­tract­ing an in­creased tax take of GST.

My ques­tion would be why are you bring­ing in refugees when we al­ready have a high-den­sity pop­u­la­tion. And how about cut your wages be­fore cut­ting health and ed­u­ca­tion funds.

See if he's keen for an MTB ride!

The lat­est ABS data in­di­cated Kar­ratha’s pop­u­la­tion had not plum­meted in the past year, but many were not con­vinced.

Roe­bourne 1000, Wick­ham 3000, Point Sam­son 500 max. That’s short of the 6900 they say for Roe­bourne area.

I dunno, I'm pretty sure there are 19,000 peo­ple in Coles and Woolies the night be­fore Good Fri­day or when a cy­clone is an­nounced.

No way! What are they do­ing, count­ing FIFO?
