All of this unfolds after the Labor government has been in power for 15 years; its initial “pledge card” to SA voters in 2002 promised to “fix” the state’s electricity system. Yet for pointing out this deliberate folly and how it fuelled the embarrassment at the Adele concert, Weatherill calls me a “right-wing f..kwit”.
This comes from a politician who lost the two-party preferred vote to right-of-centre parties 47-53 at the past election. He stayed in power only thanks to longstanding dodgy electoral boundaries.
Unlike the electricity system, the boundaries have now been fixed; so he starts the election from behind. As he spends taxpayers’ money on gas plants, diesel generators, batteries and advertising campaigns to spin his dystopia, Weatherill will be hoping there are no more blackouts.
There must be a strong chance that some time between now and March the lights will go out. Then, Premier, save for the right-wing bit, your vulgar tag may better suit Someone like you.
I repeat what Chris Kenny said …
Premier, save for the right-wing bit, your vulgar tag may better suit Someone like you.
Here’s hoping those boundaries are fixed better than the power system.
