CCC budget slashed
IT’S greatly concerning that the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) budget for the next year has been cut by Annastacia Palaszczuk.
This is despite the fact that the CCC asked for more money – that request was rejected by Labor.
Stood-aside Energy Minister Mark Bailey is being investigated over a suspicion of corrupt conduct.
We have seen several other recent probes or reviews about local government corruption.
Labor’s own members have raised significant allegations of corrupt conduct not being dealt with by those in power.
Given the significant threat of organised crime and major crime activities, you would think that this is the time to increase the budget of our independent major crime and corruption fighting body – not cut it as we have seen from Labor.
Annastacia Palaszczuk promised accountability. We have seen anything but.
Labor changed the voting system, giving only 18 minutes notice and without consulting Queenslanders in a bid to rig the next state election.
Report after report has been covered up in legal red tape so that Queenslanders can’t be told the truth.
When it comes to Labor, you can’t trust them because they’ll say and do anything to get elected.
