My vision for Australia

I’m proud of how far our country has come over the past few years. And I know there is still more work for us to do to make life better for all Australians. My vision for Australia is about everyone having the chance to realise their full potential.

Secure your future

We live in the best country in the world. But to secure your future, the road ahead depends on a strong economy. We have a plan to make Australia stronger and on 18 May, Australians will have the opportunity to back that plan as we’re backing them.

Election Called for May 18

The federal election has been called for the 18th of May.

Make no mistake, this election will have real consequences for Australia’s economy – and our local communities.

Through the hard work of the Liberal National government, the Australian economy is strong and we are back in the black.

We will deliver Australia’s first budget surplus in over a decade after six years of Labor mismanagement. 

And there’s more to be done. We have a plan to:

  1. Create 1.25 million jobs over the next five years
  2. Maintain Budget surplus’s and pay down Labor’s debt
  3. Deliver lower taxes for working Australians, families and businesses
  4. Guarantee increased investment to schools, hospitals and roads
  5. Keep Australians safe and our borders secure

The LNP Government will continue to deliver congestion busting work upgrading the roads that will get you home to your family sooner and safer.

The alternative is Bill Shorten. A union-led puppet who looks to impose $200 billion in new and higher taxes on housing, income, investments, family businesses, retirees and investments along with family cars and tradies’ utes.

When Labor run out of money, they come after yours.

Last time they were in government, $240 billion was added to the national debt.

It’s taken years to restore a Budget surplus and now is not the time to turn back.

Thank you in advance for your financial and physical support. With 35 days to go, there is much to be done. See you on the hustings.

Deb’s Queensland Report

 

It is incredibly sad and frustrating to see it, but Queensland’s health system is going from bad to worse because Annastacia Palaszczuk doesn’t have a plan.

Week after week, Queenslanders are seeing one health crisis after another under the Palaszczuk Labor Government. Paramedics, nurses and doctors are at loggerheads and under increasing strain because Annastacia Palaszczuk can’t do her job.

It is beyond the pale that secret RTI documents revealed Labor’s Health Minister was told in June last year that patient safety was at risk at a major Queensland Hospital, but he failed to act. And now with our hospitals at breaking point, all Labor is doing is holding crisis meetings.   We don’t need more Labor crisis meetings – we need a government with a plan to fix the mess.

The contrast between the LNP and Labor couldn’t be clearer when it comes to infrastructure. Queenslanders are benefiting from Scott Morrison getting the budget back in the black with record investment in Queensland roads, health and education.  

However, the Palaszczuk Labor government is blocking this critical infrastructure, even though there is federal funding on the table. 

Queenslanders are missing out on important projects like Mackay Ring Road stage 2, M1 upgrades between Daisy Hill and the Logan Motorway, Gold Coast Light Rail extension and Gympie Road upgrades because Labor is bad with money.     It is more proof that Queenslanders can’t risk Bill Shorten.  

This week I visited several local businesses across south-east Queensland and had the pleasure to meet hard-working Queenslanders at the Brisbane Markets in Rocklea, Brumbies and Moccabella Café at Bellbowrie Shopping Centre and DIGGA Queensland in Yatala.

The message from these hard-working Queenslanders was that to create secure jobs you need stability and low taxes which is why it was so disappointing to see Annastacia Palaszczuk shift the goalposts again on the Carmichael Mine.  The Palaszczuk Government has previously said they would accept the Federal Government’s decision on Groundwater Dependent Ecosystem Management Plan, but this week it was just more uncertainty.

Labor should listen to this independent scientific advice and stop shifting goalposts and let Adani deliver the much-needed jobs.    

It’s shocking and sickening to hear of animal extremists terrorising law-abiding farming families who put food on our table and create local jobs in our regions. In New South Wales and Victoria we’ve seen dozens of arrests of these animal activists and yet in Queensland, all we’ve seen are three sacrificial lambs handed over to extremists.

Labor’s soft laws mean these extremists get away with it because there’s no threat of any real punishment. The Palaszczuk Government’s weak response was pathetic fines of $500-$600, it is nowhere near enough. It’s time to throw these un-Australian extremists behind bars.

On a final note, I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of Scott Sargood this week. Scott passed away after a gyrocopter accident on Wednesday morning. He was pivotal in the campaign against Labor’s vegetation management laws. My heart goes out to his wife Adma and their two children, Bonnie and Mitch.

Scott’s legacy will never be forgotten.
