State governments are superfluous

As much as I hate to agree with the Big L Liberal flag flying Robert Findley, I must.

His observation (Remove state government, Forum, Nov 4) is something, although a huge waste of taxpayer money, that has to be seriously looked at.

The Hon Neville Wran, when he was premier and member for Glebe, advocated the same thing. He stated that either the people of Australia must consider doing away with State Governments or local councils.

Preferably the former, of which he was premier, about which he said was: “Money down the drain”.

Of course, nothing has been done. Just one example of the useless brigade we now have in place.

After many back and forth communications over the last year or so with the current Premier, Mr Mike Baird, I finally received a decision from the member for the Hawkesbury regarding the running of a bus between Woy Woy and Gosford of a night so people can go out or come home without the expense of a taxi.

The member for Hawkesbury making decisions for our community; great stuff or maybe great stuff up. Why not ask the member for Broken Hill?
