Nicholls dances around ON preference questions
LNP leader Tim Nicholls slammed Queensland One Nation leader Steve Dickson as “untrustworthy” before dancing around questions as to why the LNP preferenced One Nation second in the majority of seats around the state.
Despite promising earlier in the election there would be “no deals” between the LNP and One Nation, it emerged on Friday that in 50 of 61 seats in which One Nation is running a candidate, the LNP has preferenced it second on its how to vote cards.
That number includes Toowoomba North and South. The LNP has said this is not a deal because the move hadn’t been reciprocated.
After claiming Steve Dickson was “untrustworthy” at a press conference in Toowoomba yesterday, Mr Nicholls was then asked why One Nation was preferenced ahead of the ALP.
“When it comes to preferences, there are no good choices,” he said.
