Two events have happened in the past 4 months in Perth WA.
1. Day light savings
2. Extended Trading Hours
So, since I have been alive, I can remember 3 public votes on Day light savings.
EVERY single vote, the 'no's' had the majority.
So explain to me, after the public voted 3 times in a row, and turned down the debate... why have the government decided to introduce it WITHOUT A VOTE?
well jesus.. the public could of told you in 1 day wether we want it again, instead now they have forced it on us.
PErth just doesnt have the population, or the economy for the companies, and small businesses to profit from sunday trading. Its un-reasonable.

but those coming into the market will not be able to afford it, therefore you will see a mass exodus of young people leaving perth and going to other parts of the country that are cheaper.
Cant be good for the perth economy in the long run as the old people will eventually die out without a small younger population to replace them, hell, you'd be lucky to afford rents there now.
Hyper inflation isnt good for the perth economy and one day when the mining boom goes bust, perth will become a ghost town like those of the wild west days.
