Premier Weatherill has done it again – another embarrassing gaffe reveals his Labor Government for what it is.
Today, Premier Weatherill confessed people are sick of political “bulldust.”
A remarkable commentary on the state of political debate in South Australia as espoused by Labor after 11 long years of Government.
It is the second such admission from Premier Weatherill in a week that his government has a propensity to be flamboyant with the truth.
Premier Weatherill admitted over spruiking the cancelled Arafura Resources’ Whyalla processing plant that was spruiked by Labor as creating 1,000 jobs in this breakfast radio exchange a week ago:
Matt Abraham (ABC Breakfast): the Opposition says your government has a track record now of overselling projects, particularly in the mining sector and then under delivering. Do you agree that when you look at the Roxby no-go and now the Arafura no-go, that they’re right?
Weatherill: Yeah, I agree with them actually. I think this was a bit over spruiked.
“Over spruiking or political bulldust, the message is the same – Labor has misled South Australians for more than a decade and Premier Weatherill’s fondness for confession won’t repair the damage,” said Shadow Minister for Health Rob Lucas.
“Mr Weatherill has been a Minister of the Labor Government for 11 years and cannot distance himself from the ‘over spruiking’ and ‘political bulldust’ of the Labor Government.
“South Australians will see through Mr Weatherill’s transparent political spin and will not believe his claim that he will no longer deliver political ‘bulldust.’”
