Peter Gutwein is being utterly contemptuous of voters in hiding the truth about the secret casino pokies tax deal he’s agreed to give his party’s major donor, the Federal Group.

At the ten cents in the dollar rate Federal wanted, that’s an estimated $500 million hit to the State Budget by the deal’s end in 2043.

We’re talking here about a secret deal negotiated between the Liberals and a major donor who helped to buy government for them in 2018.

This is, prima facie, institutionalised corruption. 

There sure is something stinky about the Premier’s silence and dissembling over this question.
