Yet another

30.12.12

Letter to the Editor

Yet another 2754 sackings and further funding cuts in pathology from our LNP State government, goodness me where will it all end? The low income working families have never seen anything like this. Most of the public have been wide awake to this government and have quickly understood why they (LNP) were kept out of government in Queensland for so long.

It seems that policy is made by those in the S-E corner, for those in the S-E corner because nothing has changed in regional Queensland except we have borne the brunt of funding cuts re TTH, and Biosecurity lab among the high profile pathetic changes. Our five little lap dogs in our area have not fought the Brisbane line on our behalf, which they have been so amply paid to do.

The heat generated from Brisbane since the election could power the State for a hundred years that is all we see…talk, talk, talk. Oh yes we have plans being drawn up for this and plans being drawn up for that, rhetoric is not action. Before the election we wanted a new sports stadium in the CBD, accompanied by a new entertainment centre, Blakey’s crossing repaired and the list went on. We were going to be the second capital of Queensland…Nothing has materialized except more and more job cuts now it seems standing at 17,000.

How on earth could we follow this abject failure by electing more people from the ranks of the LNP who have bought us this disaster? They couldn’t manage a piss up at a brewery (apologies to those dainty people who have not heard the old Aussie expression) Next year the federal election will give us a chance to send a message to Campbell Newman and his motley crew that we have had enough and we won’t cop anymore. Health and Education is important to us, it is the only way to success for working class people.

Letter to the Editor

As we approach Christmas it seems as though some fairytales are sneaking into Letters to the Editor such as No source of electricity as dependable as old-fashioned coal TB 21.12.12 it was very amusing I must say. Not a scrap of truth but very amusing.

Please pardon me while I give my solar panels their annual rinse. Thankfully in the 21st century we have moved on from the steam train, welcome to the modern world.

…and so Ricky Ponting

Letter to the Editor

…and so Ricky Ponting has played his last innings for Australia, and as the Tasmanian walks from the field the scramble is on, how to get yet another New South Welshman into the already lopsided Australian cricket team?

Thanks for the memories Ricky; you have been a wonderful servant of Australian cricket over the seventeen years that you played.

What a waste

02.12.12

Letter to the Editor

What a waste of a parliamentary week last week in federal parliament. As ordinary citizens we are happy that the government has bought in the groundwork for the National Disability Insurance Scheme and other positive moves on our behalf. It was a real disappointment though to see the negative tactics from the Opposition lead by the most risky of politicians Tony Abbott.

Risky, because he presented no alternate policy to sell to us, risky because he is off chasing shadows trying to implicate the PM in something that has already had near on 20 years of investigation and has turned up no evidence.

The Prime Minister gave this bloke a chance to level an allegation at her, and he failed. It was a put up or shut up moment and he couldn’t produce an allegation, meaning that he was just throwing shit, hoping some would stick, without success. Seriously, could anyone vote this type of bloke into the Prime Minister of Australia’s chair, I think not.

In the parallel universe that conservative politicians live in they do not face hardship or the stresses of life that the community that surround them face, they are unable to understand the lives that those of us who drive second hand cars, and who live on Struggle Street every week trying to pay even basic survival bills such as electricity, rates/rent, and proper food and what’s more nor do they care.

It’s time to decide early on to stick with the government we have for one more term, as we will get no joy from an Abbott government, some will say that I am dead wrong, in which case I only have two words for them….Campbell Newman!

Shaun Newman
