Kim Hames Versus Troy Buswell

Colin Barnett accepted Kim’s explanation that claiming $1,000 for expenses was done in error and yet removed Kim from his portfolio.

Colin Barnett goes on to say “”When you hold public office, the standards are high. They were innocent mistakes, but not excusable mistakes,”

Now, maybe your views are different to mine but being fired for one collective mistake for a mere $1,000 is worse than  the vile activities by Troy Buswell?

But we know what happens to you when you sit on the back bench out of public view for a while, you get to sit on the front bench again.  So, Kim, don’t worry, it’s just a political ploy to muzzle the opposition and keep the whining public and media quiet.  You will be back in a top spot again soon, real soon.
