Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE peo­ple have spo­ken and we have a new State Govern­ment.

West Aus­tralians will speak again at the next fed­eral elec­tion and teach the Govern­ment not to use Western Aus­tralia as an ATM to fund other less pro­duc­tive states.

Un­less there is GST re­form, a num­ber of high-pro­file Lib­eral Min­is­ters will be look­ing for new jobs.

Why should we pro­duce 40 per cent of the na­tion’s wealth and be asked to bor­row $40 bil­lion to pay for the in­fra­struc­ture needed to pro­duce this wealth?

Robin Hood eco­nom­ics will no longer be tol­er­ated and the govern­ment that ig­nores us will go the same way as our last state govern­ment. Change our deal or suf­fer the con­se­quences at the polls. DOUG CRO­KER, But­ler.
