Bob holds Turnbull to ransom
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.
