Beat­ing the door down

Mercury (Hobart) - - LETTERS -

AS usual when he’s re­quired to show some lead­er­ship, Tas­ma­nia’s Pre­mier is nowhere to be seen. In­stead of beat­ing the door down at Bupa South Ho­bart to de­mand what the hell is go­ing on, he’s off to the UK on some trade mis­sion, a role that could be filled by one of his over­paid bu­reau­crats. While he’s there he can do well to visit Bupa head of­fice and let them know we don’t give a dot about boasts about 80,000 staff in 190 coun­tries. What we would like is proper care for our own peo­ple. In the mean­time, when you re­turn, we de­mand an­swers on what is go­ing on in the health port­fo­lio. That’s the one in which a true leader would have long ago taken pride in dis­play­ing some gen­uine in­ter­est and man­age­ment skills, in­stead of leav­ing it to those who lack the ex­per­tise.
