A NO VOTE FOR VANITY SPEND
MR Barnett again putting West Australia deeper and deeper in debt with his plans for an open range zoo at the cost of $2 billion dollars.
Where is Mr Barnett going to pluck this money from?
Mr Barnett isn’t thinking about the community of those in need, because if he was then he would have been thinking about building more homes for the homeless, better roads, more hospital beds and better education facilities etc.
Mr Barnett is only thinking of himself. He’s built Elizabeth Quay, whether we really needed it or not. He built the Burswood Stadium, which is going over budget and the average person won’t be able to afford AFL, cricket or shows because of the price of the tickets.
People have stated the stadium is going to be a bad business practice for Cricket Australia, West Coast and Freo. But Mr Barnett is saying they are lying. If they are lying why is it that the Eagles and Dockers haven’t signed up yet?
So far we have the Burswood stadium and the children’s hospital running over budget and overdue.
In the wind: the Roe highway costing $2 billion and growing, the extension of our rail lines costing billions of dollars and now another Mr Barnett pipedream, the Open Range Zoo, costing tax payers $2 billion plus.
Mr Barnett, where is all this money coming from? Higher taxes, utilities costs etc?
How can you propose all these projects when the state is in debt? Thanks to you and your government, without any increased revenue from anywhere you are continually talking about big projects just to boost your self-opinionated ego.
The voters of WA want strong action to reduce our state debt, increase houses for the homeless, more hospital beds, better schools, better roads, more police on our roads, reduced crime and more prisons for repeat offenders.
The March election is only months away and you want to give the community more debt?
Get your priorities right Mr Barnett.
