THE result of the recent Queensland State Election has left many people wondering what is going on in the political world. People have the idea that the answer to our problem is we have to get “our party” into power, and we will live happily after. Politicians promise all sorts of things that are supposed to fix the country’s problems.

Because people’s incomes have been negatively impacted, then social security has to fill the gap even more. Government and big business are in favour of more foreign ownership of farms and real estate in general, as well as businesses. That’s a recipe for disaster. Mel Chalmers South Kolan
