Perrett declines invite to join KAP
“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.
