KAP a real al­ter­na­tive

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

MEM­BER for War­rego Ann Leahy has again let fly at Kat­ter’s Aus­tralian Party, this time for not at­tend­ing the Par­lia­men­tary Es­ti­mates Com­mit­tee.

From what was seen on the me­dia, the hear­ing was a pa­thetic dis­play at times, with inane ban­ter be­tween the ALP and LNP.

At one stage in the pro­ceed­ings, the Mem­ber for Cal­lide pro­duced a tape mea­sure.

If he was at­tempt­ing to mea­sure the com­pe­tence of the ma­jor par­ties, he was wast­ing his time.

Many of us are tired of be­ing told that the LNP is fight­ing for us.

They couldn’t fight their way out of a wet pa­per bag.

They have not been able to make a mark on the La­bor Govern­ment and given the weak­ness and in­com­pe­tence of this govern­ment, this is “ap­palling”.

The best they can do is yap from the side­lines, like a chi­huahua at a dog show.

KAP has pre­sented sev­eral pieces of leg­is­la­tion to the Queens­land Par­lia­ment in this cur­rent term, some of which were suc­cess­ful.

The LNP has pre­sented none. If they were to do so, they might find bi­par­ti­san sup­port for worth­while leg­is­la­tion.

The Palaszczuk govern­ment is about to in­tro­duce an Abor­tion Bill to Par­lia­ment.

KAP has vowed to op­pose this Bill and lobby other MPs also.

Will LNP give a guar­an­tee that they will op­pose this leg­is­la­tion or will they give La­bor a “free pass”.

Fi­nally, I wish to thank Ann for ac­knowl­edg­ing the presence of KAP on the po­lit­i­cal land­scape.

We will con­tinue to of­fer a real al­ter­na­tive to the peo­ple of Queens­land, par­tic­u­larly in ru­ral ar­eas.

Mem­ber of KAP
