Would Crouch promise everything and deliver nothing?
Perhaps Adam Crouch should concentrate his attentions to the dissatisfaction with his Liberal Government that is currently rife, instead of commenting on Labor's pre-selection determinations.
He is quoted saying: "This upcoming election offers two distinct differences.
"With Labor, it is a vote to put someone into Opposition who can promise everything but deliver nothing, while the Liberal candidate will be a strong voice in Government for Gosford, who can continue delivering the roads, education and health services the community needs".
If voters were persuaded that only votes for a presiding government were useful, it follows that no government would ever be tipped out of office.
Elected members of the Opposition obviously represent the majority of an electorate and endeavour to pursue the wishes of those constituents.
For example, the previous Labor Member for Gosford, Ms Kathy Smith, fought hard to try and convince the government not to transfer the RMS office from Woy Woy to Gosford.
Unfortunately, those endeavours reached the ears of a government that chose to ignore the wishes of the people, a government that continues to ride roughshod over or ignore a community will eventually find itself in opposition.
It is to be hoped that should Mr Crouch find himself in Opposition, he will not "promise everything and deliver nothing".
