As Western Australia continues to slog through its post-mining boom hangover, a deep malaise seems to permeate all levels of the state’s political life.

    Barnett has been a decent Premier & is untainted by factional influences. The demise of the mining boom was not of his doing. But, leaders do have shelf lives & the voters want a fresh face. Sadly, neither party has any talent to offer.
