It is not often I have anything positive to say about the Labour Party but I heard something on a news broadcast the other day that the Labour government in South Australia is implementing which I applaud. I am not 100% certain of the facts but I believe the state financial records will be made available to all South Australians via the government website. Although we cannot be sure about how accurate these figures will be I am willing to give Mr Weatherill the benefit of the doubt for the moment.
One step forward and two steps backward, today I hear the SA Labour government will be cutting jobs and hospital beds in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, a tragedy waiting to happen. It came as no surprise to me that some people are blaming this on Mr Abbott. Mr Abbott is the federal Prime Minister Elect, he cannot do anything yet.
As a father of 4 and grandfather of 8 I have spent my fair share of time at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and cannot speak highly enough of the staff. If it were not for these wonderful people I would not have at least one of my grandchildren now, we cannot cut staff or beds at this hospital. If anything with our ever-growing population we need more hospital staff and beds period.
