It’s official, Albany Hospital is understaffed and has been for quite a while. We have magnificent health professionals and a great facility combined with an aged population.

Don’t wear out the magnificent staff – spend the State’s wealth dollars on the basics and not on puerile gimmicks.

Hopefully our new Member for Albany, Rebecca Stephens (the voice of Albany) re-sleeves the “Sounds of Silence” album and does some representing for this community.

Google the meaning, it might surprise you what you need to do.

Need to stand up, speak for the needy, the weak, the underprivileged and to represent them, giving them strength and hope, not treat with indifference, disdain and promote self-importance.

The term “ambulance ramping” means failure to fix the health system – stand up and be counted, the time for integrity of purpose is well and truly here.

We’ve just celebrated the magnificent sacrifice of Anzac Day – don’t shame those that fought hard for all things decent and the Australian fair go.

Now ask yourself – who are the true believers, and indeed who are the true deceivers that continue to let down the community?

The Drover’s dog has returned to politics.
