The Western Australian Liberal Party's State conference this weekend will be a test of whether the Party understands and is prepared to do something about its standing and reputation by dumping its Senior Vice President, Mathias Corman. Corman is principally responsible for handing the government its one-vote one-value legislation which has all but wrecked any chance of the Liberal Party winning government in Western Australia in the foreseeable future.
Corman was the architect of having sitting Liberal Upper House member, Alan Cadby dumped from parliament and replaced with Corman's acolyte, one Mr Peter Collier. Cadby, an able and first term member, promptly resigned from the Liberal Party and in the last month of his term used his deciding vote to support Labor's one vote one value legislation. The consequence of the new electoral boundaries has put State government beyond the reach of the Liberal Party.
