Barnett’s boys’ club

Mr Barnett has been providing jobs for the boys, the big boys, by unprecedentedly laying out lavish largesse by way of huge projects for the construction and building sector ” the freeway, roads, Elizabeth Keys to name a few.

In the process, he has willingly gone into debt.

Nevertheless, he must have known all the time that the State could handle that debt by selling public state assets.

What better way to boost, reward or curry favour with the big end of town or the investments likely to flood in to WA from overseas.
