Colin Barnett and his cohorts have lied once again. But is it poor journalism or no desire to report the truth anymore for political expediency that allows for the public to be unawares of the truth? The spin back in May 2012 was to soften the public, make them think that if the state government spent the hundreds of millions to upgrade the Broome airport was of benefit directly with tourists coming to WA to spend their cash. Because the state government is too gutless to stand up to these greedy corporations and say “payer uses” Colin Barnett was determined to make us heavily taxed public take the burden whilst corporations make even more super profits and not pay a cent.
Back in May 20012 TheWest newspaper wrote an article about the development of Broome Airport for the international travelers. It was a red flag to a bull, my cynicism was founded by todays report that Broome Airport upgrade is on the back-burner because of the spat between Woodside Petroleum and a Liberal government that doesn’t have any business sense.
Thus I rest my case again! The first article was a lie by the Colin Barnett government and by those with a vested interest as mentioned in a previous blog. Although I was slightly off balanced towards thinking the mining industry were a predominant factor, the fact the development was not just for the benefit of the mining sector but the gas and oil as well, although I did mention all 3 industries.
If you look at the bottom of the link here you can see the secretive dealings that governments, corporations and lobbyists have and yet collude to lie to the public. It shows the complicity between them all in the way the state or for that matter the country is run.
I would love to know how many ex-politicians get cushy jobs with corporations or advisers to the respective governments, especially with companies that they have been dealing with directly whilst a government official.
The game between government, companies and the mainstream media (msm) goes on because the media fear losing a lucrative advertising deal, the government fear media will create propaganda against them and corporations won’t tolerate either if they are reported by either too eagerly.
The public remain in the dark, but sadly will still read the crap from msm and believe a pathogenic lying government and fear loss of jobs if companies send manufacturing overseas.
