State needs rescuing from years of debt
JOBS for Queensland, Annastacia?
With 15 trains made in India, stuck out on a barge in the Pacific, we have a public transport train crisis at home. The rush is on, as trains have been replaced by buses for the past months, with tracks under repair.
The best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour and this is a certainty for both Labor and the LNP.
What can we expect that’s new and a change from the $85 billion deficit, when the promises of millions of dollars for future investment mean more debt and a higher cost of living for Queenslanders?
The politicians are trying to convince sceptical voters they will make it all right if they win.
These same politicians have had their day to redeem themselves for three years with no reduction in the debt status-quo.
And then along comes a refreshing, “good different” down-to-earth leader, unafraid to tell it like it is.
She is gathering momentum as the others fade into political history, just like Campbell Newman.
Labor is guilty of nepotism in its DNA.
Beattie, who left Queensland in debt, as did his protege and successor Anna Bligh, continue to be on government payrolls. Politicians’ pay should be relative to productivity, like in any other job.
Debt reduction and tightening the belt should be mandatory to re-election.
They went on to bigger and better-paying jobs for themselves with our state in insurmountable debt: Beattie organising the Commonwealth Games in Bligh’s Labor seat.
