The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

BOB Kat­ter plans to hold a gun to the head of the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment to de­liver a $4 bil­lion swag of “big-pic­ture” projects for Queens­land.

The Kennedy MP is again one of the na­tion’s most pow­er­ful politi­cians in a hung fed­eral Par­lia­ment after the LNP’s John Alexan­der fell vic­tim to the cit­i­zen­ship fi­asco.

Mr Kat­ter ex­clu­sively told The Sun­day Mail his guar­an­tee of sup­ply and con­fi­dence to Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull came with a list of de­mands. “It is time to stop the fi­nan­cial rape of north Queens­land. We need to think big pic­ture and start work on na­tion-build­ing projects.’’

His list in­cludes a $2.2 bil­lion “Aus­tralian owned and run” rail­way line into the Galilee Basin coal­fields and the $800 mil­lion Hell Hell’s s Gate Dam and power project near Townsville.
