Barnett makes promises but plays the delay game with critical jobs

If you notice the media consistently remind us the number of projects that Colin Barnett delays at the cost of being called a liar just to win an election.  Although I would be pleased to see a permanent delay in the construction of Elizabeth Quays and the deliberate planning of the football stadium next to the casino.

But Colin knows how to utilise the tactic when it comes to paying Police, teachers and nurses.  The most recently controversial is the deliberate delaying tactic to give nurses a pay rise which includes deplorable threatening behavior

3 Strikes Law is for whipping the public

The general public don’t spend enough time asking questions, or standing up to their rights or equality.  If they did then the 3 Strikes law would either not exist or be a lot different.  If you think about the 3 strikes law, consider who is targeted, criminals including children.  Although the 3 strikes law on children is rarely used the fact it exists is a concern.

So, why am I questioning a law that protects the good people of this nation?  Well, at what stage did the 3 strikes law apply to corporations?  It doesn’t, because it is aimed at individuals and this I find totally wrong; thus no protection from corporate criminals.

When are parking fees are a political engine

When the government of the day want to charge people for something, such as parking, they can.  Although if it isn’t in legislation to charge for parking then it is illegal to charge parking fees and this has come to light at Osborne Park hospital, where the legislation was introduced after the Osborne park Hospital Car Park existed.  But relief is only small as it is clear that all major hospitals force you to pay, such as Joondalup and the new Midland Health Campus run by a Godly group of corporate moralistic brethrens.

always check your doctor, he may be dyslexic!

I am not having a go at anyone, really, I am just making you aware that there could be more than meets the eye when a doctor tells you your results are back and there is bad news.  You sit there with your jaws wide open, in shock with thousands of images and words running through your head, images of your family and friends your life from birth.  “What bad news?” You ask.

The doctor looks at you, takes off his thin rimmed glasses, places them on his desk and looks at you with his professional sad face, “Mr Newman, I am sorry to say it is terminal”. Continue reading always check your doctor, he may be dyslexic!

Whilst Emperor Colin Barnett plays with lives… Collateral damage continues

I noted an article in the West Australian Newspaper that a massive influx of flu casualties has risen this year, worse ever in 10 years and the public health system is not able to cope with it unless you have $250 to jump the queue.  Public health is failing to meet demands and in doing so deaths do occur.  Well deaths it may be but the health system is the messenger and is the messenger of the state government and the message is, budget surplus is more important than your grandmother’s health.  If a hospital is having to resort to paper bed sheets to save money and deny a decent meal in the middle of the day then the health system is being shafted.
