Cri­sis not na­tional

The Sunday Times - - YOUR SAY WA -

Will the pow­ers that be ever stop dis­in­for­ma­tion about na­tion­wide gas and power short­ages, when only the East­ern States are af­fected?

We see wide-eyed TV re­porters talk of loom­ing gas short­ages “across the coun­try” and re­strict­ing LNG ex­ports, but never men­tion­ing our 2006 Car­pen­ter gov­ern­ment en­sured WA’s se­cu­rity by set­ting aside 15 per cent of our gas re­serves for WA use. Self­ishly, the greedy GST grab­bers keep their gas in the ground, while want­ing to steal our 15 per cent. And Sand­grop­ers are now bom­barded with an Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment TV com­mer­cial crow­ing about ex­pen­sive Snowy Moun­tain hy­dro­elec­tric up­grades. Again, it’s of no rel­e­vance or ben­e­fit to WA. For more de­tails we are re­ferred to the Pow­er­ing For­ward web­site, which also uses and mis­rep­re­sents the term “across Aus­tralia”.

In­stead of in­ces­sant east coast pro­pa­ganda, it’s time WA Fed­eral politi­cians and me­dia en­sured we get in­for­ma­tion rel­e­vant to WA. SID BREEDEN City Beach
