Liberal Member of the Legislative Council Rob Lucas said today that Treasurer Foley had chickened out by refusing to do the traditional post budget interview on ABC morning radio.
Mr Foley this morning refused to be interviewed at the usual 8:30am-9:00am time slot by David Bevan and Matt Abraham on ABC Radio.
“As a former Treasurer, I know that Mr Foley is the first Treasurer in more than 10 years to chicken out and not face up to the post budget interview.
“Mr Foley obviously doesn’t like to answer tough, live questions on the budget because he has refused to do any interviews with Bevan and Abraham since last year’s post budget interview.
“The arrogance of the Rann Government and Mr Foley is unbelievable and should be unacceptable to South Australian families.”
Mr Lucas cited this incident as another example of the Rann Government refusing to be accountable for the decisions they make.
“Mr Foley obviously believes he only deserves to be interviewed by journalists he approves of!
“To use a footy analogy – Foley heard footsteps and ducked his head!”
