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?
