Labor completely out of touch
LAST week, Labor decided that the most pressing political issues in Queensland were banning Christmas in our schools and targeting our national symbols and institutions. Clearly, the loony left has taken over and Labor is now completely out of touch.
How can Queensland’s senior Labor MPs believe that ruling out kids giving each other Christmas cards is a priority in our education system? Labor needs to spend more time ensuring students are improving their numeracy and literacy.
This is madness. Let’s be clear – this is not just political correctness on steroids, it’s another example of Labor’s support for left- wing social engineering, like the Safe Schools program. The LNP will not tolerate this type of silly rubbish in our schools.
Then, while the country faces major security, cost of living and economic issues, Bill Shorten announces his No. 1 agenda item if he becomes Prime Minister will be to turn Australia into a republic. Fair dinkum, how are we supposed to take him seriously?
Not to be outdone, the Queensland Labor conference then agreed to move Australia Day and scrap the Australian flag. Labor cast the big issues of high unemployment, crime rates and electricity prices aside, to throw stones at our national identity. I support Australia’s current constitutional arrangements, our existing national flag and leaving Australia Day alone.
