all these remarks about WA Liberals actually doing something or even having somebody at the wheel - both of which have no real substance to rely on
Like it or not old Barnett didn't have any succession plan , he was boss and that was it - and now it's plain to see there is no way Liberal could govern in the near future and probably longer
It'll be years before any experience is gained 
and as far as pricks go , well Barnett is one of those for leaving us with his criminal son and a blowout of nearly double cost at Burswood and a fricken boil known as Elizabeth Quay

Apparently ex-premier McGowan is now working 4 jobs.
He's joined old joe hockeys lobbying firm in providing investment and strategy advice. And it's been said is also a part time advisor for Mineral Resources. And also starting a consultancy role with BHP very soon it has been confirmed. Add to that is supposedly going to take on another advisory role with APM.
Wonder if he will repay his 250 to 300 thousand/ year retirement pension back?
I thought they were paid that amount because of "lost opportunities"?
I would have thought consultancy work is very well paid, is it not?
Certainly a few questions need answering!

He’ll soon be able to chuff on a cigar with “Smokin Joe” Hockey and shoot the breeze.

What an absolute proedicatble joke.

Tax Payer rolled gold Mcgowan $300K a year was tired and worn out, so we are always told by these grifters, so tired he has gone to work for Lib. Joe Hockey and big corp. BHP to sell gov secrets and do deals to line his own pocket...

Any moves like this should mean you forfeit the tax payer pollie pension,,,,what a rort.

yeah it is disgusting and the pensions should be wound back if they go private 
and fat joseph was the king of stealing public money on the national stage so it's no real wonder he's just a money pig
just remember all the money it stole using the "wife's properties" as cover
and the toad was never going to stick around after it lost it's own election was it?

Yes this crap needs to stop and there needs to be an independent review of how much retired politicians can earn without losing their pension. Why shouldn't it be means tested like any other pension?

 The other funny thing is the moment he had used them up for votes, he packed up and left rockingham, and moved to a mansion in Mt Lawley, got away from the rocko bogans he kept telling us he loved so much...nothing but another pocket lining fraud.

don't waste your time expecting all 4 sides of WA politics to abandon their perks
all of the parties ( Lib , Lab , Nats & independents) agreed to the Pension system and voted it in for themselves
we have no hope of reform in this
fact

I think Mcgoo is the last of the current members to have the old rediculously generous Super system, all current ones are under the less generous ( but still way over the top) system brought in by Carpenter.
