Mor­ri­son has fight­ing chance at elec­tion

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS | OPINION -

PRIME Min­is­ter Scott Mor­ri­son has im­pressed with his quick de­ci­sion mak­ing in re­gard to the Aged Care Royal Com­mis­sion and the straw­berry tam­per­ing saga.

I have no doubt Bill Shorten would have pre­ferred to fight the next fed­eral elec­tion against Mal­colm Turn­bull rather than Mor­ri­son.

To give the Coali­tion a fight­ing chance at the next elec­tion Mor­ri­son now needs to dif­fer­en­ti­ate the Coali­tion poli­cies to that of the La­bor Party.

With $2 bil­lion on the table for wa­ter in­fra­struc­ture, com­mit­ting his govern­ment to build­ing a huge dam in north­ern Aus­tralia, as pro­posed by the CSIRO, would be a step in the right di­rec­tion.

Also com­mit­ting to a coal fired power sta­tion in North Queens­land would be a great de­ci­sion en­sur­ing base load power to the na­tion plus it would show Queens­lan­ders he is gov­ern­ing for all Aus­tralians not just the south­ern states.

Pulling out of the Paris Agree­ment, sav­ing Aus­tralia $1 bil­lion and in­vest­ing in our Pa­cific Is­land neigh­bours would be a much bet­ter way for our na­tion to se­cure our bor­ders.

I think Mor­ri­son has a real chance at our next fed­eral elec­tion.
