Earlier this month I was copied into an email to the Premier from a constituent.
In the email the constituent wrote:
I wish to make it known that I didn’t appreciate the flyer handed to me in my shopping in Main Street by career firefighters in full uniform whilst on the public payroll.
It was union propaganda, you and your team must be aware of the many voters who are very wary of your management style and at the ballot box next year—
this was followed by a series of question marks.
The constituent was keen for me to voice his concerns directly, and I am pleased to do so in the Parliament this morning.
His is not an isolated comment; it is a genuine reflection of widespread public concern about this Premier’s bully-boy tactics.
