We will see financial crises soon enough at the state government level if governments attempt to provide the infrastructure and services their electors demand. WA losing one notch of its credit rating is nothing like a crisis, just a slight political embarrassment in the general scheme of things. The current crop of premiers might well figure that they'll be gone before their states get to the crisis stage, when full hospitals and growing aged care scandals and creaking infrastructure enforce change. History will record them as cowards and failures if they do so.
