So we see in Parliament that some of the Liberals government sale of public assets, are off the table as the depressed property market is killing off the chance of a good sale price.
The other night WA Treasury has admitted that the sale of Assets like the Department of Housing (DOH) is no longer fiscally responsible, so they are off the table.
Will Fremantle’s Mayor Brad Pettitt, obsession over Kings Square at any cost to its rate payers, now finally do down in flames saving the COF from a potential financial disaster? Has the sway of luck finally fallen Fremantle’s way.
So with the sale of the DOH property all over, how will the state government justify the relocation of the DOH to Fremantle, as they now live/reside in a rent free bottom line. Not to mention the millions of tax payers funds needed to relocate the 1000’s+ work force from Perth to Freo.
The question is, how would the government justify the movement of such a department when clearly now the financial position has completely changed?
Many financial questions will be asked of this government in the next state election, will the Fremantle’s Councils Kings Square debacle be one of them?
Or will Barnetts boys brush this skeleton finally from its closet?
Amazing that the greens candidate brings up this issue, well not really hypocrisy could be considered policy for many of them? anyway while the greens candidate for Fremantle is complaining against a bill to become law that stops protesters from interfering with people going about their lawful activity. Its not against protesting its self, just about protesters interfering with other peoples lawful activity. Seems reasonable to me.
Anyway while she is protesting and writing about Barnett’s interfering with peoples rights, her green party members on council are doing the same thing with how people live. Our Mayor in Freo Brad Pettitt wants to limit the size of the house you can build on your own block, while he is driving sub-division at the same time hes got other plans up his sleeve that will effect your family rights in Fremantle.
Things like one car per house, banning street and verge parking encouraging development in town with out adequate if parking? What effect will this have on your investment? When streets are packed with people cars who’s apartments don’t have a car parking space. Long term it will have a negative impact on growth for these properties, especially when every where else is ensuring adequate parking space. This is WA a state bigger than western europe.
So while the greens candidates is complaining about a law that will really only effect the professional protesters and their activities to stop businesses going about their lawful activity, the Mayors Plan will impact how your family life at home 24/7, 365 days a year.
