Quick-fixes drain cof­fers

Countryman - - OPINION | HAVE YOUR SAY - Daryl Bin­ning, Winthrop

The true cal­i­bre of Pre­mier Mark McGowan and his min­is­ters can be gauged by their de­ci­sion not to spend a com­par­a­tive pit­tance on re­tain­ing ru­ral col­leges and school camps.

Th­ese will be of im­mense ben­e­fit to cur­rent and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

Mean­while, they squan­der un­told mil­lions on the tem­po­rary Fremantle freight-fix fi­asco with no long-term value to the com­mu­nity.

In their scram­ble to save face in the wake of ill-ad­vised elec­tion prom­ises, knee-jerk il­log­i­cal and ex­pen­sive quick-fixes con­tinue to drain the econ­omy.
