Ruth Young, of Con­nolly, has just re­turned from liv­ing in the UK and wit­ness­ing Brexit. “Politi­cians seem to make it up as they go along,” she said. “Who’s ben­e­fit­ing; I don’t think we trust them any more. “It’s a very di­vided world now.”

Glenn Cun­ning­ham, of Con­nolly, said un­em­ploy­ment was the main is­sue for him. “I think all politi­cians are just as bad as each other; all these prom­ises that are never kept,” he said. “Maybe we need a new sys­tem.”

Bryce Adams, of Alki­mos was yet to de­cide on what would guide his vote. “I will look into what the par­ties are promis­ing and how it will af­fect me,” he said.

Athol Smith, of East Perth, pointed to State debt as a fac­tor for vot­ers but not for him. “(Colin) Bar­nett’s put us on the map,” he said. “Look at Perth now (with its new fa­cil­i­ties); it’s bril­liant. He’s not a gut­less politi­cian.”

Cooper We­ston, of Banksia Grove, said he would be vot­ing in line with pru­dent spend­ing. “I will be look­ing at where money is going around the com­mu­ni­ties,” he said. “Whether it’s a road project or light rail, make sure money is spent prop­erly.”
