What’s one to do with lit­ter of stray cats?

I RE­CENTLY moved to Bundy and I in­her­ited the pre­vi­ous owner’s cat. I have no de­sire to own a cat so I didn’t en­cour­age it.

As we are still set­tling in we had a rolled up mat­tress on the back porch which pussy used to give birth to her kit­tens.

I con­tacted the RSPCA, who told me it was a coun­cil mat­ter. The coun­cil told me to catch it and de­liver it to the an­i­mal pound.

The cat is not friendly and I am 83 – even at 23 I could not run a cat down.

The lady at the coun­cil could not give me any clues as to how I could catch the cat. So I said I would put the kit­tens out in the yard and let the mother de­cide what to do with them.

Seems a bit odd that all the peo­ple with the ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence don’t have any ad­vice for me.

LNP must be jok­ing

IS IT any won­der the LNP in this state keeps say­ing the ALP keeps steal­ing their ideas.

Un­der Paul Neville for so many years and now Keith Pitt, they have over the years just about promised ev­ery­thing that’s pos­si­ble, no mat­ter how big or small.

They have very lit­tle to show for it, so, it’s ob­vi­ous to all and sundry the ALP will on oc­ca­sions have sim­i­lar or bet­ter ideas, the dif­fer­ence be­ing the ALP im­ple­ments them.

So far, the mem­ber for Bur­nett (re­mem­ber him folks) he’s called Stephen Ben­nett, and all he does is whinge and whine on about how ev­ery­body does things. Why?

Well, it’s be­cause the La­bor Party is get­ting on with the job and mak­ing a dif­fer­ence. The LNP hates it.

One would think that the mem­ber for Bur­nett would get be­hind the “buy lo­cal buy Queens­land” to help pro­mote the state and dis­trict, but no, just neg­a­tiv­ity.

His coun­ter­part, Keith Pitt, should be get­ting be­hind the re­new­able en­ergy evo­lu­tion in­stead of fol­low­ing his ring­mas­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull, but again no, just neg­a­tiv­ity.

The Op­po­si­tion in this state is in such dis­ar­ray and they want peo­ple to vote for them. They must be jok­ing.

La­bor let-down

LEANNE is and al­ways will be the MP known in Bund­aberg for be­ing only medi­ocre at best, only in­ter­ested in serv­ing a few in the com­mu­nity and ne­glect­ing the rest.

She hasn’t brought any­thing to the re­gion and when she makes talk, it’s al­ways based on knock­ing fed­eral is­sues and com­par­isons to draw at­ten­tion away from her own poor per­for­mance at a state level.

This is in­ter­est­ing be­cause fed­er­ally, Keith has been be­hind the fund­ing of many ma­jor in­vest­ments in our re­gion – Knauff, IWC, Pa­cific Tug, Kay McDuff Drive, Bur­nett Heads De­vel­op­ment, nu­mer­ous veter­ans af­fairs grants and sports fund­ing through­out the area, all work­ing in with coun­cil and other state bod­ies.

These are just some of the things that have come to mind.

Leanne, do­ing the fa­mil­iar Keith/Can­berra bash­ing, es­pe­cially over the Land 400 con­tract where Rhein­metall has com­mit­ted to es­tab­lish­ing its $80 mil­lion man­u­fac­tur­ing cen­tre in Queens­land, just fur­ther high­lights how out of touch she is with the pro­cesses of how these con­tracts work.

She has no busi­ness back­ground.

If it wasn’t for Keith and his work as as­sis­tant trade, tourism and in­vest­ment min­is­ter ral­ly­ing all the Queens­land sen­a­tors and all LNP mem­bers of this project in Queens­land, the com­pany wouldn’t have con­sid­ered Queens­land to be­gin with when it first ap­proached the Fed­eral De­fence Depart­ment.

Keith started this and then the La­bor Gov­ern­ment joined in when they re­alised Queens­land was in con­tention.

The fact Leanne over­rode the pre­mier say­ing they will be built in the Wide Bay when the con­tracts are not al­ready done, just to have a crack at Keith, re­in­forces this medi­ocrity.

Pity the La­bor Party hasn’t in­tro­duced a pol­icy in their party where each MP has to earn their job again like they do in other par­ties be­fore an elec­tion.

She only got in with the help of the ETU, the same peo­ple who are spik­ing power prices which are harm­ing the very peo­ple the La­bor Party is sup­posed to rep­re­sent.

It is a party that has been hi­jacked by green ac­tivist groups like GetUp and, of course, the unions, and if you aren’t one of them, then you are on your own.

It’s power at all costs.
