The three stooges

17.11.18

Re the three stooges letters to the Editor on Friday 16th November 2018. Firstly I would like to point out that there were many inaccuracies in all of the letters, however, not enough space to type all here so as an example allow me to take just one as an example.

 

Tasmania have about 510,000 people and have 5 in the House of Representatives, North Qld with 540,000 people have only 2. I’m sure the member for Capricornia(NPA) the member for Dawson(NPA) the member for Herbert (ALP) the member for Leichart(LNP) and the member for Kennedy (KAP) would be very interested to know that there were only two of them.

‘ROGUE POLLIE LASHES LNP” Townsville Bulletin 16.11.18 I would hardly describe what Jason Costigan said as a ‘lashing’ however it does continue the problem that the federal L’NP government and it’s State counterparts face, which is internal squabbling instead of “getting on with the job” as the pollies are so fond of saying.
 
I can’t recall one positive statement from Costigan in all the time he has been in the Queensland parliament. Occasionally I see Freckles on TV and even less occasionally I see Crisafulli making some weak excuse of an attack on the Queensland Labor government however Costigan is all but invisible.
 
There are many infrastructure improvements that I would like to see for Townsville and North Queensland, including the proposed hydroelectricity power station built at the Burdekin Falls Dam site. If Costigan wants to open his mouth he should be advocating for that project to go ahead for North Queensland, not concerning himself with in the parliament with internal LNP politics.
