Albanese Arrived In Perth For The WA Election
Mar 5th, 2021 at 7:04am
 
WA election campaign sees Anthony Albanese arrive as Mark McGowan heads out bush   Smiley
ABC News
March 4 2021

Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese has arrived in Perth for the WA election 


The WA Premier has spent the day campaigning in regional parts of the state, despite his federal counterpart touching down in Perth today.

Key points:
Anthony Albanese arrived in WA as Mark McGowan toured regional areas
But the pair deny the Premier has snubbed the Opposition Leader
Mr McGowan has labelled the NSW Premier's COVID stance "hare-brained"
Anthony Albanese arrived in Perth for a two-day visit, just a week out from the state election, where he promoted battery manufacturing for electric vehicles at a nickel refinery in Kwinana.

"It is great to be back here in Western Australia," Mr Albanese said, alongside the Federal Labor Member for Brand Madeleine King.

"The story of resources and trade and our exports is a story of Western Australian growth. But it's not just about the west, the whole nation benefits from what is happening right here."   Smiley

Instead of the Labor leader hitting the campaign trail with Mr McGowan, the Premier was hundreds of kilometres away in the regions.

Kirkup says McGowan avoiding Albanese
It promoted State Opposition leader Zak Kirkup to suggest Mr McGowan had distanced himself from his federal counterpart on purpose and that he had "fled the city" to avoid public scrutiny after "a couple of days of bad media".

Zak Kirkup wearing a white shirt and blue spotted tie, speaking at a press conference.
Zak Kirkup says Mark McGowan doesn't want to associate himself with Federal Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese.
"I can understand why the Labor Party wouldn't want to associate themselves with Anthony Albanese," Mr Kirkup said.

It was an accusation Mr McGowan flatly rejected while spruiking an education commitment in Albany.

"I'm meeting him [Mr Albanese] tomorrow," Mr McGowan said.

The Premier said he "did not know" if he would be appearing publicly on the campaign trail with Mr Albanese during his visit.

"I think I am having a meeting with him in my office," Mr McGowan said.

"He's welcome in Western Australia, as indeed is the Prime Minister.

"We don't have borders anymore with New South Wales, so they're both welcome here in Western Australia."

Mr McGowan said the WA Liberal leader's accusation only showed the Liberal Party would not prioritise the regions like Labor would.

"I have an enormous time and commitment to regional WA and those comments show the Liberal Party and the Opposition leader don't," Mr McGowan said.

Albanese says no snub
Mr Albanese brushed off a question about whether he viewed it as a snub by the Premier.

"No, I am seeing him tomorrow," Mr Albanese said. 

"I'll be out and about, and I'll be seeing him tomorrow."

Mr Albanese said it was "not at all" unusual not to be campaigning with his state counterpart.

Labor, The Liberals, The Greens and The Nationals have all made big-ticket pledges to win your votes. We're tracking and collating the big ones for you here.

"I've flown across, tomorrow I'll be in a childcare centre, I'll be going to the campaign tomorrow and we have a range of events. Stay tuned.

"Mark McGowan is a friend of mine, he's been a friend of mine for a very long time. Mark McGowan is in a state election campaign that's about state issues."

Mr McGowan pointed to the fact the Prime Minister Scott Morrison was allowed to visit the state but had chosen not to, as did Labor's campaign spokesperson Rita Saffioti.   Sad

"He [Mr Albanese] is in WA. Where's the Prime Minister? Let's hold the other side to account," Ms Saffioti said.

But Mr Kirkup said he had a "very good working relationship with the Federal Liberal party".

And while Mr Kirkup was campaigning for stronger local industry growth, he was again forced to defend his election commitment costings, which he said would be released next week.   Sad

However, he could not remember the name of the agency responsible for completing those costings.

"I'll get that to you," Mr Kirkup said.

Outgoing Treasurer Ben Wyatt said the costings should be released immediately, given record numbers of people flocking to early polling booths.

"He's either lying to the people of Western Australia or quite simply, it's not going to be done," Mr Wyatt said.

Later in the day, the WA Liberals revealed the costings agency as accounting group Hall Chadwick.

Zak Kirkup has already conceded defeat....The Liberal Party are very toxic over here in the West and look like losing in a landslide....Good to see a Federal Leader taking the time to visit WA who have helped save the Australian economy with mining royalties....Where is Scummo???

Albo's trying to pick up some of the warm and fuzzy from the impending big win in WA.

Will it work for him?

Dunno.

As for Albo's call for an "independent" inquiry over Porter?

I have an inkling that all this "demand an inquiry" stuff could turn sour for Albo and Labor.

Anyone notice that this is party business and not government business?

Who's footing the bill... get to the choppah!!

Way past time for a clear line to be drawn between party business and government business.......

Mining royalties go to the state - what have they done with it?  Created jobs?  Supported small businesses?  Built massive infrastructure?

SHOW ME!

Is Albo paying for his own travel and accommodation, or is the party, or is the taxpayer?

From the article I posted???

Quote:
Booming iron ore prices driven by Chinese demand will swell Western Australia’s budget coffers by $2.3 billion over the next four years, pointing to a likely federal government windfall that would speed up budget repair and drive down record debt faster than anticipated.

Might be better to cut it loose... meaning my prescient novel series about the same happening to the US in twenty years time could be adapted to Australia - I could one day be viewed as a prophet instead of a dead loss ..

Why not go the whole hog?
