WA SO SHORT-CHANGED
WEST ERNAustralia had Bill Shorten this past week and along with his visit were many promises for the future if the ALP wins the next election.
The last time Mr Shorten was in WA he made promises to fix the GST situation until he got back across the Nullarbor where he denied ever making that promise.
He again recognised that WA is being disadvantaged with our portion of the GST but is unwilling to make changes because it would affect the eastern states.
He promised to top up each year to an amount equal to 70 per cent GST coming out of WA. Again this is nothing but words and just another fog off by Bill Shorten and the ALP. Labor will do nothing because it will affect their stance in the eastern states at election time and it's not in favour with what the CFMEU or the unionists want.
Bill Shorten’s promises are nothing but words to please Premier McGowan. Let's put up for an 80 per cent of our entitlement of GST to make up for all the previous rip-offs we have encountered over the past 10 years or so. The voters of WA want action and not promises.
