Letter to the Editor
Words don’t fail me, but the words I would use to describe Premier Newman and his LNP government would not be printed, my reaction to the State government spending extra money on beefing up security for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games at the cost of every school student in Queensland. Why is it that there is a pot of money to fund the Commonwealth Games in 2018, yet when it comes to the children of this great state, sorry, we’re broke, and can’t afford to spend the money in order to attract $3.8 Billion of extra funding from the federal government to educate to a higher standard, every school child in Queensland.
Our children’s education is far more important than a few second rate gold medals, yet you have no hesitation in spending for extra security at the games, clearly no amount of security is enough, the fanatics will find a way in. Not good enough Premier, in fact nowhere near good enough, you and your party should be ashamed of yourselves. Shame Newman, shame!
