Queensland State Election
The LNP Senator Scarr used taxpayer funds to condemn Queensland Labor for not committing to build the Coopers Plains rail crossing. Then the Labor member for Toohey, Peter Russo, and the Minister for Transport and Main Roads, Mark Bailey, announced funding to get the job done. The LNP candidate for Toohey mustn't want to fix the road—there's nothing on his web page. However, the dude is very supportive of another road intersection getting an upgrade, publicly thanking the federal member for Bonner, but not me, for the Rochedale roundabout, which isn't even in Toohey. Maybe Senator Scarr should lobby his own LNP candidate to see if he will support fixing a crossing the Deputy Prime Minister told me 464 days ago, right here, that he'd come visit. But the Toohey dude isn't actually the weirdest LNP state candidate in Moreton. I don't know the candidate in Stretton, as he doesn't live anywhere near the electorate, and I don't know what he did wrong, but the Moreton young LNP put out a tweet last night that reads:
There comes a time when one must put their country before party. The Moreton Young LNP stands resolutely opposed to Peter Zhuang's candidacy in Stretton. We call on the voters of Stretton to place the LNP last in the seat.
Here's the tweet.
In South Brisbane, some coalmining dude called Palmer is telling voters to put the Greens before the LNP because he is terrified of Jackie Trad. To avoid the Frecklington-Palmer-Hanson chaos, vote Labor for a stronger Queensland.
