Per­rett de­clines in­vite to join KAP

The Gympie Times - - NEWS -

“I WILL not be join­ing the Kat­ter Aus­tralia Party,“was Gympie MP Tony Per­rett’s blunt re­sponse to a cheeky in­vi­ta­tion is­sued yes­ter­day af­ter­noon by the KAP. Mr Per­rett was in­vited on board af­ter cross­ing the floor “to stand up for law-abid­ing gun own­ers” in Par­lia­ment on Wed­nes­day night. “It’s ex­actly this sort of com­mon sense and courage that KAP en­cour­ages in its Mem­bers of Par­lia­ment,” a KAP spokesman said. “KAP tried to stop La­bor’s dra­co­nian gun re­stric­tions from be­ing in­tro­duced in Queens­land on Wed­nes­day night, but the LNP sup­ported La­bor to let them through. “The LNP’s Mem­ber for Gympie Tony Per­rett was the only ma­jor party politi­cian to show any re­spect for ru­ral and re­gional Queens­land. He crossed the floor to vote with KAP.

“We want Tony to know that our door is open,” KAP state leader Rob­bie Kat­ter said.
