Liberal WA Premier Colin Barnett, years past his “best by” date, should take the hint:
West Australian Premier Colin Barnett faces renewed speculation about the security of his leadership, with a privately-funded poll of voters showing his government is set to lose next year’s state election…
It is not clear what questions were asked or how they were framed, but it is understood the results show Labor easily picking up the 10 seats it needs to win government.
Crucially, it is understood the poll shows that if the Liberal Party swapped leaders, the government would lose only one of the 11 seats included in the poll.
Given the state of government in WA, Labor deserves a chance to show what it’s got.
