Simone McGurk the Labor member for Fremantle has been appointed by Premier Mark McGowan to become the Minister for Child Protection, Women’s Interests, Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence and Community Services.
That’s a lot of portfolios, so good luck Simone!
Two ‘locals’ have been appointed by Labor leader Mark McGowan into the new Western Australian cabinet.
Simone McGurk and Peter Tinley will be told on Thursday by the new Premier which portfolios they will be responsible for.
Well done Simone and Peter. Now the hard yakka starts!
Fremantle Port looks as if Labor leader and former Navy officer Mark McGowan has called in a few favours to show Bad Boy Boom Bust Barnett and his supporters who will be in charge from Monday on.
There are five warships in the port and one off shore, so that is a clear show of force. ; >)
One more sleep!
The Pauline Hanson of Fremantle politics sent out another rant to the members of his community group.
He had such a great time in Subi where the driver of a red Ferrari told him his car was even more noticeable. Freo’s Pauline drives a late-model yellow Porsche.
Freo’s Pauline then rode around Subi on a $ 2,000 bicycle and got a bargain buying his exclusive French tea leaves.
He who looks down on us Freo commoners even observed how well-dressed people in Subiaco supposedly are when compared to Fremantle.
The rant continues that while Freo’s Pauline was living the high-life in Subiaco a mate went to Target in Fremantle and witnessed a case of shop-lifting. It’s the tale of two cities according to him.
No doubt shop-lifting only happens in Fremantle and not in Subiaco or anywhere else in W.A. and Council is to blame for it, as it is according to Freo’s Pauline for not doing more against anti-social behaviour in Fremantle.
Ooops, Freo’s Pauline totally forgot that crime and anti-social behaviour is the responsibility of WA Police and his mate Colin’s government. He also ignores the fact that the City of Fremantle recently employed more safety officers.
It appears we are just not classy enough here in Freo for the refined taste of Fremantle’s anti everything guru, but as it is the case with the real Pauline not many people take Freo’s Pauline’s rambling nonsense serious anymore.
Don’t forget to come to the Fremantle Candidates Election Forum tonight hosted by former ABC political reporter Peter Kennedy.
It is on from 6.30-8.30 pm at Tannock Hall of Notre Dame University on the corner of Cliff and Croke streets in the West End.
All candidates have been invited so it could be a very lively debate in regard to the Perth Freight Link and sale of Fremantle Port.
Fremantle has long been considered a safe seat for the Labor party but the demographics have been changing in recent years due to increased residential development, so Simone McGurk has a fight on her hands to retain her seat.
I’ll report on the debate at around 9.30 this evening!
