You know, New South Wales real problem is not power generation, or transport or hospitals, its not even the imbalance between federal and state taxation. All those are a symptoms of a much bigger problem, the quality of the people in government.
After hearing about the depressing nonsense in parliament today I came across this: Westpac CEO Gail Kelly, is regarded by Forbes magazine as one of the world’s most powerful women. What can we do to get people like her in parliment? The Americans can get top leaders from the private sector in politics, Mitt Romney comes to mind, but the only Australian that that I can think of is Malcolm Turnbull. Frankly if money was the issue I would be happy to pay them 10 times a pollies salary.
