Fallout from the SA election « Previous | |Next »
April 16, 2006

A wry observation about the after shocks of the recent SA state election:

Poor Demcrats. They cut their own throat.

I read the other day that Kevin Foley, the Treasurer in the Rann SA Labour Government, is complaining about the hard task of being Treasurer in a state government. He said that he has to implement the Government's election promises without slashing services whilst maintaining the state's precious AAA credit rating.

He has delayed the state Budget from May to September and is complaining around Adelaide town that state governments are great big monsters with an insatiable appetites for spending.

Wasn't it the Rann Government that got itself into this position? Guess what. Foley will slash services and go to the media about it cuts his social democrat heart to do so. Rann will become more open about the economic benefits of uranium mining to supply the energy needs of the China and India markets delivering the social democratic project.
