The Truth, Mr. Foley

Posted on: March 2, 2010

The Treasurer has waded into the Opposition costings of that hospital. Well, here is a short list of Foley’s costings. $8 billion liability to the Public Service “will be on track by 2034″ and almost $2 billion for Work Cover unfunded. $53 million for the Clipsal property that remains idle and over 8000 cars with 7 accidents a day costing $1.7 million a year in repairs. The $10 million paid to the proponents of the now discarded plan for the Monarto gaols,” because it is the right thing to do” is another matter.

The software system scheduled for completion in 2011 was contracted at $22 million and last year reported blown out to $45 million and no completion in sight. The yearly hand outs to the 250,000 pensioners and disadvantaged announced by the Premier is already being collected from the increased registrations and service charges.

But the biggest problem is the arrogant assumption that the ruling junta can override the rise and rise of independents. Sure, they will be inexperienced but we can live with that if they tell the truth. Think about the mess that experienced politicians have made because of the Party system serving its Party tenure interests and turning otherwise good and competent people elected to the Parliament into Party hacks …and very ordinary ones at that.
