Nation’s political system in total state of disarray
I THINK we need to answer some questions on what is happening to our beautiful country.
We are plagued with a drug problem where drug lords are getting away with destroying lives.
Meanwhile there is high unemployment and some youths don’t want to work but rather just live on the dole.
Our political system has broken down and little gets done.
Regions are being neglected for capital cities as their population con- tinues to grow and they yell for more transport and wider roads to get them to work. All this is done at the expense of the regions and as well they want more political representation.
With all this, the country is going down the gurgler.
Let’s look at the country as a whole. We have six states and two territories all acting as a separate entities with their own governments and with a federation set up for special purposes.
What we need is one nation and one government to prevent in many cases seven every policy.
I remember a New Zealand prime minister saying Australia can never make a decision in one day as seven or more people want their own way.
Take, for instance, the following blunders: the rail network, power network and water infrastructure.
The political system does not work and in most cases we pay those in the Opposition huge sums and extras and they do nothing but stop government from developing policy. They should or eight decisions on be helping them to come up with a better decision.
We have privacy laws now destroying past behaviours. Our health suffers due to different state polices and our laws are not standard.
I believe we need one government deciding on policy and the states and councils abolished and we have regions throughout the nation who do the work under the control of a management team elected by the people. GARTH HARRIGAN,
