South Australian Services have been under attack over recent years from all of the major political parties while in Government. Some of these critical public services which have been sold include electricity, transport, gas, Forestry SA, SA Lotteries, the Motor Accident Commission and the Lands Titles Office. As South Australians, we have had enough and are fed up that our essential community services have been sold for a quick cash injection for the Government of the time.
Privatisation undoubtedly results in higher costs worn by the community, less efficient community services, significantly reduced ongoing revenue for the State, and private profits taking priority over community services.
This needs to stop.
South Australia is now one of the most privatised states in the country.
Tell the Government - whoever they will be come 17 March - to stop privatising our services.
I support essential public services that the South Australian Public Sector provides in our state and strongly oppose any sell-off of State assets.
Privatisation in South Australia, other states and internationally has led to increased costs and reduced protection for the public.
I ask that community services provided by the public sector are not privatised further in South Australia.
