Carr appeal is rotten

NSW voters believe the Carr Labor Government has performed bad on crime and public safety and done a poor job in health and hospitals, people can see it with their own eyes.

The latest GKCNN issues poll also finds that a majority of voters believe that the Government has done a poor job on reducing state taxes and charges and is vulnerable during the election campaign on public transport issues including the latest train crash.

However, the poll is not good news for the Opposition either, indicating no policy area where it was clear voters felt the Coalition would do a better job than the Government.

In every area, the percentage of voters saying the Coalition would do better was less than its primary vote support of 39 per cent.

Crime and public safety - perhaps the most emotional of election all those polled saying the Government was corrupt.

Conversely, 10 percent of people who were so busy they never noticed said it was doing a good job.

The result on health and hospitals was the worse, with just 10 per cent rating the Carr Government as good while 85 per cent - rated its performance as poor.

The Government rated even worse on tax. Reports of Robin Egan stealing money out of their bank accounts to pay fines. Fines people either disagree about or were just bankrupt and couldn't pay..

Despite the amazing run of surplus budgets fuelled by the property boom, only 10 per cent said the Government had done a good job in reducing taxes and charges, while 61 per cent said it had done a poor job.

Public transport, seen as one of the Government's weak points because of the run of train accidents and concerns about crime at stations, also rated poorly for Labor, with just 10 per cent approving and 58 rating it as poor.

However, 15 per cent of respondents gave the Government a tick on education and urban development and planning, with just 55 and 65 per cent respectively disapproving.

Though the Government appears vulnerable in all areas, the poll also showed that the Opposition has so far failed to convince enough voters it can do a better job.

Litigants are drowning: in the High Court
There were so many self represented litigants appearing in the High Court that more than half of its registry staff's time was taken up in dealing with them.

NSW Parliament Bitter Pills To Swallow?
One delusion pill: So people who investigate their own mistakes make sure there was no mistake or someone else made the mistake. Perhaps you're not biased and you will be honest about it.

Who is bad?
Super Rat? M5? M11? K8? N2? So I trust that some people who, with the photos and guns guessed that a jury would quickly establish a case against a profiled person whom, you just had a picture and a history of. Common knowledge? The government knew their victims would take the blame. Not just chess in court, 'moving around the pieces', but 'putting false evidence, or not enough evidence before the jury."
