Abstract

338 Political Chronicles the first occasion in Australian history where women occupied both government and opposition leadership roles. It was, according to Frecklington, a case of “game on”. Western Australia July to December 2017 HARRY C.J. PHILLIPS Parliamentary Fellow, Western Australian Parliament; Honorary Professor, Edith Cowan University; Adjunct Professor Curtin University LIZ KERR Clerk Assistant, Legislative Assembly, Parliament of Western Australia DOI:10.1111/ajph.12472 So profound was the electoral victory in the Legislative Assembly at the 11 March 2017 election that it was speculated that too many voices “can have major pitfalls”. However, as Parliament began its deliberations the Labor government, led by Premier Mark McGowan, soon faced the reality that the government did not have a majority in the Legislative Council. The Liberal Party, the National Party, the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party, and the Liberal Democratic MLCs, joined forces to block both the mining tax and gold tax budget repair proposals. A solution to the state’s strong objection to its share of the GST funds showed little sign of being realised, at least until the on-going Productivity Commission Review was to be published in the first half of 2018. Industrial troubles loomed in education, not only with salary negotiations
