Fed­eral lead­ers ig­nore WA

Southern Telegraph - - Opinion - Robert Col­lie, Waikiki

Both Shorten and Turn­bull have come to town many times, promised to cor­rect the GST — and done noth­ing.

Both have promised top-ups; how­ever, th­ese top-ups are re­ally not top-ups at all.

I was sim­ply amazed that Turn­bull went to Vic­to­ria last week and promised $5 bil­lion for a train line from the air­port to the city.

This is af­ter WA was told no fund­ing was avail­able as the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment does not fund rail trans­port.

What we re­ally need is a party to be formed that will stand up for WA and hold a bal­ance of power in the Se­nate — un­like our ex­ist­ing mem­bers, who do noth­ing for the State they rep­re­sent. Grylls and co., where are you, we need some­one now.

I will not be vot­ing for La­bor or Lib­eral in the next Fed­eral elec­tion, nor should you.
