Queensland needs stability

The State Opposition has called on the Palaszczuk Labor Government to stop running from scrutiny and start running the state.

Deputy Opposition Leader John-Paul Langbroek said that every day Annastacia Palaszczuk spent worrying about her own job was another day that jobs weren’t being generated for thousands of Queenslanders.

“All we’ve seen from the Labor Government so far is instability, indecision and internal chaos,” Mr Langbroek said.

“The Premier is more focussed on her own job than on creating jobs for Queenslanders.

“If Annastacia Palaszczuk knew that she couldn’t provide a stable government, then she should have levelled with Queenslanders and crossbench MPs before assuming the role of Premier.

“It’s now time for this Government to level with Queenslanders.”

Mr Langbroek said the latest revelations that senior members of the Labor Party were pushing for a return to the polls raised questions about who was really running the government.

“It certainly appears that union bosses and faceless members of the Labor Party are running the show – not Annastacia Palaszczuk. This is exactly what Queenslanders feared,” he said.

“Queenslanders deserve to know who is really pulling the strings.”

Mr Langbroek said the LNP had lessons to learn from January’s election result.

“We have to learn our lessons but Labor has to learn that you need to be prepared when you are coming into government,” he said.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk was in too much of a hurry to visit the Governor and move into the Executive Building.

“Now we are in the situation where an inexperienced government is blaming voters for the fact that it wasn’t prepared to run the state.

“Queenslanders deserve stability, competence and experience. They deserve more than this Labor Government can offer.”
