The article informs that the decision of Alan Carpenter, premier of Western Australia, to give support to former premier Brian Burke and former Labor minister Julian Grill was a mix of pragmatism and inexperience. Carmen Lawrence, former premier who set up the WA Inc royal commission and the federal member for Fremantle, Western Australia, has described as devastating and very sad the way in which the activities of Burke and Grill have again filled the levels of politics and business.
