Busy blaming Newman


CAMPBELL Newman must have been extremely busy during his tenure as premier.

According to the LNP, he was solely responsibl­e for every decision made by his government, especially the bad ones ( C-M, May 30).

No wonder many decent people don’t want to get involved in politics. Barry George, Bray Park YOUR Editorial ( C-M, Jun 1), in its summation of the successes of the former Newman government, linked the anti-bikie laws with LNP success in the 10 Gold Coast electorate­s.

In eight of those seats the ALP secured a double-digit swing in its favour. Francis Carroll, Moorooka WE KEEP hearing that the state Labor government is “listening to the people”.

This follows a rise in water rates, vehicle registrati­on and driving licences in the past few weeks. We’re all being taken for an expensive ride.

Where are you Campbell Newman? All is forgiven. Chris Banks, West End
