A new Trea­surer, but still no Bud­get

Central and North Burnett Times - - OPINION YOUR SAY -

QUEENS­LAND has lacked eco­nomic lead­er­ship for the last five years and that stems from the very top with An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk.

The Palaszczuk La­bor Govern­ment is play­ing mu­si­cal chairs in the Cabi­net, in­stead of fo­cus­ing on pro­tect­ing jobs and se­cur­ing our eco­nomic fu­ture.

In­com­ing Trea­surer Cameron Dick has been in an eco­nomic port­fo­lio since the last elec­tion and dur­ing that time Queens­land has had the worst aver­age un­em­ploy­ment rate in the na­tion.

He was also the man­u­fac­tur­ing min­is­ter when our econ­omy lost 18,000 man­u­fac­tur­ing jobs, as re­vealed by the me­dia last year.

What hasn’t changed is that La­bor still has no bud­get and no eco­nomic plan for Queens­land.

The Palaszczuk La­bor Govern­ment is a bad govern­ment headed by a weak Premier.

Chaos and con­fu­sion reigns supreme be­cause of the lack of lead­er­ship from An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk.

Palaszczuk is a weak Premier who is run by the fac­tions and union bosses and Queens­lan­ders de­serve bet­ter.

Queens­lan­ders de­serve a govern­ment that’s fo­cused on get­ting peo­ple back into work, pro­vid­ing job se­cu­rity and an eco­nomic fu­ture for our state.

Queens­lan­ders de­serve a govern­ment with a plan to work with the pri­vate sec­tor and at­tract more in­vest­ment and more jobs.

While La­bor has been plunged into an in­tegrity cri­sis, only the LNP has a plan to build a stronger econ­omy and get Queens­land work­ing again.
