Elec­tion prom­ises

Gatton Star - - YOUR SAY -

ELEC­TION close upon us: So many mil­lions thrown into the winds. So much waste of our fi­nances, des­per­ately needed to­ward build­ing and sup­port­ing much-needed

wa­ter stor­age and other in­fra­struc­ture. So much pos­tur­ing with sud­denly avail­able squil­lions of dol­lars. Phantom fi­nances.

Why was this promised fund­ing, not pro­vided to­ward these newly found, des­per­ately needed, in­fras­truc­tural im­prove­ments while these gov­ern­ments were in power?

None of the prom­ises of the LNP, La­bor, or other mi­nor par­ties are cast in stone. Empty prom­ises to boost the vot­ing power needed. Too much of our in­dus­try, raw ma­te­ri­als, our on­shore power, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and other ser­vices have been passed onto off­shore con­trol.

Too much of our fund­ing is chan­nelled into as­sist­ing the rape of our coun­try, our Aus­tralia. For LNP to skite that they have guided our fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion into “sur­plus,” is a play on words. This is only a bud­getary sur­plus, leav­ing we Aussies with bil­lions still owed to worldly fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions. We are not fooled as vot­ers. We will vote in­tel­li­gently.
