Day was ruined

Premier Colin Barnett has ensured that he will be remembered. With his policy on sharks, he makes us all hypocrites.

How can we any longer express outrage to the Japanese over their persistent hunting of whales?

Danger from land-based sharks, on Perth’s St Georges Terrace, for example, by far outweighs threats from our oceans’ wildlife.

Shift your focus, Mr Barnett. Better still; resign before you encourage more damage to our embattled environment.
