Just lip service

MOST people are disgusted with the furore over of our various Federal Government ministers’ lack of transparency.

At a local level, the City of Vincent’s Mayor John Carey is aghast and lashed out after proposed WA local council reforms about openness and transparency were rejected.

I can say from personal experience with my local council that “open and transparent” is merely convenient lip service.

In my opinion, it is time for a big shake up.

GERRY COLEMAN, Bassendean.
