LNP’S CROC PLAN IS REALLY LABOR’S CROC PLAN
Well, after months of Andrew Cripps and Jason Costigan whining about Labor’s new tougher Crocodile Management Plan, the LNP have finally released their own policy.
It looks a lot like Labor’s Plan. That’s because it is Labor’s plan.
Croc catchers already have the authority to choose how to remove problem crocs, including lethal force where that is deemed necessary.
The LNP propose renaming Labor’s management zones, which helps to make the LNP’s plan look different but won’t make a single person safer.
The final supposed difference is their proposal to allow wild egg harvesting. The LNP doesn’t seem to have given much thought as to how they would actually implement egg harvesting – but Labor has been working to develop a sustainable egg harvest trial – one that complies with federal law and international treaties.
When last in government, the LNP had fewer croc catchers, less funds for crocodile management, smaller crocodile management zones and no funds for surveys.
That’s why the Palaszczuk Government is catching twice as many crocs as the previous government every year to keep people safe.
By copying and pasting Labor’s plan the Liberal National Party have finally accepted Labor’s Crocodile Management Plan is the strongest Queensland has ever seen.
Steven Miles MP, Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection and Minister for National Parks and the Great Barrier Reef
and Malcolm Turnball is turning the screws on ordinary Australians.
What initiatives have the LNP done for Australia since Malcolm Turnbull took over?
Name one thing. But on the other hand let’s look at the things that have cost us: Increased Medicare costs Reduced Medicare services Squandered surplus from the mining boom Increased university costs Reduced aged care services Reduced funding to arts and culture Reduced funding to Indigenous affairs.
Increased taxation on lower income earners
Reduced taxation to companies and high earners Public service privatised Public infrastructure decimated Jobs lost Ignorance on global warming Threats to the reef unchecked Billions spent on immigration detention facilities
When I hear Malcolm Turnbull I simply groan, and his state counterparts are no better.
