LETTER OF THE DAY: Political circus leaves poor choices
READER COMMENT: WHY do politicians always have to assume they are right and their agendas are for our own good?
Mr Newman has failed to convince Queenslanders that he is right for the job and it is in our best interests to stick with the plan.
- HAVE YOUR SAY: Is Clive Palmer good for our reputation?
- Newman resists temptation to sink boot into Clive
- OPINION: Our nation's problems start at the top
- Palmer finds few friends on his home turf
- Clive Palmer acting like a buffoon with China tirade
Knowing full well that the Gold Coast is the centre of the universe for some - with a massive amount of taxpayer funds being spent on the Commonwealth Games and world-class transport infrastructure - all Queenslanders are paying for the privilege.
For a region with the state's highest crime figures and huge resources spent on fighting the escalation of illicit activities, it is hardly worthy of promotion as a family or tourist-friendly region.
The steep rise in the cost of living under the Coalition and the debacle of bad publicity over immoral LNP politicians, who failed to represent their constituents and were voted out in by-elections, have not endeared the Can Do Party to the general public.
Mr Palmer is right in the fight to pick up disaffected voters, but he comes with no previous political experience, much money, and a hidden agenda.
Queenslanders deserve candidates of principle and integrity. What we have is a political circus with discriminatory spending and high taxes.
Going back to Labor's future is not an option. The battle to control the state will come down to the least of many evils.
