We’re far from a smart state

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

WHO can re­mem­ber when in Queens­land we had to choose be­tween The Smart State or The Sun­shine State on our num­ber plates?

Well I guess we do get our fair share of sun­shine but what about smart?

The two ma­jor par­ties in Queens­land are like Dumb and Dum­ber.

They just want to blame each other for the prob­lems our state is fac­ing.

Ten thou­sand peo­ple lost their jobs last month and power costs and crime are spi­ralling out of con­trol and all they both want to do is to throw mud at each other and see what sticks! They are both re­peat of­fend­ers and nei­ther should get the op­por­tu­nity to pun­ish us again.

I would like to see a Par­lia­ment made up en­tirely of peo­ple who just rep­re­sent their own con­stituents and have the de­ter­mi­na­tion to put them first.

The travel rorts and other mis­use of the pub­lic purse for their self en­ti­tled life­style must end.

We need a gov­ern­ment that cre­ates op­por­tu­ni­ties for busi­ness to em­ploy and not one that keeps throw­ing out the road spikes to halt al­most ev­ery de­vel­op­ment .

Had enough! MICHAEL ABRA­HAM Bohle
