Premier’s new office opens:
“Let them eat cake”
Representatives from public sector unions today attended the opening of Premier Barnett’s new office to question the priorities of his Government.
Meredith Hammat, Acting Secretary UnionsWA said:
“Premier Barnett’s attitude towards ordinary West Australians seem to be “let them eat cake” so we’re presenting him with a gift for his new office, a cake in the shape of a Perth rail car.
“This is to remind him that for the estimated $26 million spent on this new office it would have been possible to purchase two three car rail sets.
“That would have meant less congestion on trains, taken cars off our roads and reduced Perth’s chronic traffic jams.
“There is a long list of other priorities that better reflect the needs of Western Australia.
“Our hospitals have been privatised, there are not enough child protection workers, housing and electricity costs have soared.
“Premier Barnett has just cut the public sector by a further one and a half thousand staff while our population has grown by seventy-three thousand in the past year.
“Yet he finds plenty of public money for building projects in the inner city including $400 million towards the Elizabeth Quay and $1.2 billion on the Burswood stadium as well his new office.
“The priorities of the Barnett Government are wrong.”
