Let’s Have Another Party?

Independents Plan Power Play (Border Times Editorial Oct 6)

A “disparate bunch” is the phrase Professor Dean Jaensch coined to describe the unlikely alliance of regional independent MPs and Nationals minister Karlene Maywald who are seeking to win the balance of power at next year’s state election.

Hardly “Power Play” which always has connotations of corruption and we have enough of that already in the corrupt morality of the two party system.. Both major parties have lost their identity. In a study of policy that has lead to performance. it is easy to conclude that public policy has been replaced by party policy and in the process separated politics out of the community into a comfort zone of its own.

The state population is too small to support the grandiosities of the past 7 years. The revenue to fund the constant spin is just not there . Barely 800,000  create the wealth by their personal and corporate effort in SA, yet this Administration has gambled and lost $2.9 billion of it from investments instead of bringing the $10 billion debt that is costing over $1.34 million a day under control. We could have advanced the state enormously these past 7 years if politicians were honest and faced the truth, that the cost of Government is destroying incentive to exploit the opportunities that have been available

The independents are not interested in power play but transparency and accountability. No public funds should be hidden from disclosure, least of all by a politician. A junta that exercises an arrogant abuse of power to hide its weakness and uncertainties has reason to fear for its future. More so when those elevated into positions of power have little of life experience or the morality to exercise it.
