LNP LEADER FORGETS POLICY?
LNP leader Tim Nicholls has been vocal in telling the government to scrap an annual indexation policy applied to some fees and charges, including car registration.
The trouble for Mr Nicholls is that the indexation policy he attacks is the one he implemented when he was Campbell Newman’s Treasurer in the former
government — it’s in black and white for all to see in his Budget papers.
Not content with being lazy and negative, Mr Nicholls and the LNP now have amnesia — calling for the scrapping of a policy they were quite happy with in government. Instead of baseless attacks on the Palaszczuk Government, Mr Nicholls should be explaining to Queenslanders his policy on asset sales.
It is now eight months since he said he would reveal his position “in due course”.
We all know he still wants to sell income-generating state assets, but just isn’t prepared to be honest with Qlders.
Mr Nicholls should also try explaining to Queenslanders how he plans to fill the $8 billion budget black hole he has dug himself by opposing key revenue measures of the government.
Until he explains that, no promise he makes is funded and no promise he makes can be believed.
