Letter to the Editor
Yet another week of omnishambles in the Queensland parliament where the Queensland LNP government and its leader have acted more like a dictatorship than a democratic political party by making MPs swear an allegiance to the party and its leadership, resulting in the departure of at least 2 well respected LNP MPs. The internal factions of the LNP it seems have declared war on each other; this is now the most divided government that Queensland has ever seen.
This same dishevelled, deeply divided party will ask voters within the next 12 months to elect or re-elect federal LNP MPs into a federal parliament whose current Opposition finds a 20 year old piece of AWU skulduggery the most important issue that concerns Australia’s future.
The LNP or federally the L&NP seemingly have no policies with which to wow the Australian voters, so they waste parliamentary time with conspiracy theory and conjecture instead of doing their job, which is to present alternate policy and sell those policies and to hold the current government to account on government policies.
We in Queensland have seen the huge shift in the approach of our State government who in only 8 months has deeply cut health and education services and funding in Queensland, sacked 14,000 people, cancelled projects and are in charge of a State of Stagnation, with rapidly rising unemployment (6.3%).
Queenslanders and others will really have to ask themselves one basic question given that Campbell Newman and Tony Abbott belong to the same faction within the conservative party. That question is “Do you want the whole of Australia to run in the same fashion as Queensland?”(Substitute your own State). I for one would not condemn my fellow Aussies to such a mean and inhumane government.
