At last. A Prime Minister who can run the Country as a business and say "NO" or "YES" as needed to do it. Abbott really needs to butt out as he was, and is not, wanted anymore.....

Yes probably the most effective policy outcome in our history. Border security is fundamental to our nation. People coming via payments to people smugglers is not the way to seek asylum.

Aw good on ya but yet foreign aid and bringing in refugees to settle in Australia still remains the same what about the homeless on our streets first ?

What's with the 1984 newspeak? "People Smuggling Boat"? Why not say a boat containing refuges and displaced people?

That's the only thing that will save LNP THANK YOU MR DUTTON

Yeah now they let them in the front door to bludge on us and cause misery

,,,,,aaaand it was the Labour Party that stopped the boats???????????????,,,Wasn't it?????

And a job bloody well done

Keep up the good work

Well done !

Great work

Are you Bill Bateman one of the bed wetters?????

many are offended by this post apparently.

Let's Get Queensland Moving Again

Comment on Facebook

Well spoken Tim Nicholls, sounds hopeful. Certainly time for a change

Great common sense video, I'm voting for a government that gets out of the way!

Just reminding you Tim, there are plenty of people who remember only too well your party in government changing the body corporate rules which resulted in many hundreds, maybe thousands, of unit owners in Queensland having their body corporate fees significantly increased at the stroke of a pen. Elderly folks on fixed income, widows barely managing to make ends meet, some people forced to sell up and move into sub-standard accommodation, etc. We will remember you and your cronies at the next election.

How about securing the water supply from the heavens above that falls in Far North Qld and runs to the sea? Security of water = security of food..Canals don't require rocket science - gravity can run water during the day and electric pumps can pump water during the night - canals can be covered with solar panels to prevent evaporation and provide electrical power - Once it has been built, operating costs will be almost zero with zero polution 🙂

Yep the bloody state govt is spending all the money down there . We need a STATE GOVERNMENT that will inject money into regional qld that will create jobs and growth and it is no wonder all the infrastructure and growth is happening down there because that is where this one eyed State Govt is spending it all

sadly, you and your love of Uber has broken too many Qlders - and they haven't helped unemployment - they've taken full time jobs away from honest, tax paying Qld citizens. ....visions and promises are all too little, too late.

Until this party decides to repeal all of the ridiculous anti-cannabis laws, they are doomed to be an 'Also Ran' . Cannabis has NEVER caused any harm to anybody Ever despite laws to the contrary and all of the maniacal propaganda. ( Perhaps your party has money invested or is bribed by those who profit from these anti-cannabis laws?)

Well said Tim, and I for one agree that there are too many rules and too much public service, (socialism) is. Another word for that. And as well as being one LNP member I will be making sure you stick to what you say. good luck. Good family story.

Build a better Queensland, by sacking overspending politicians , and cutting their benefits

Leading Queenslanders into a brighter more prosperous future.

Tim you will get my vote if you make a truthful commitment to cull crocs. No pussy footing around, a solid no get of jail good old fashioned, I will legislate to cull crocs .

You are trying so hard aren't you Tim .You will need to do better to get me interested .You don't appear to be a sincere type of Politician

In today's Courier Mail Premiers Office demanded the the toxic spill at Brisbane Airport be kept under wraps . Remember this at election time she is not to be trusted

You lot have had your chances, been no good since Joh left.

Ifyou are all the things you say then get your fed cohorts to start acting like decent human beings and not racist bullies

How about you start treating kiwis here like they are treated over ther. So much for the ANZAC spirit here in OZ.

Plukaduck can start clearing out her desk.

Well said Tim.. less red tape and promote growth.

Go Tim, I'm sure you can do it, just get out there.

X looks a great hospital and I know it is as my daughter works there and enjoys going to work.

Have they got the staff now?

Mark, Jarrod Bleijie MP and the Sunshine Coast LNP team worked with the local community to secure the new teaching hospital on the Sunny Coast. It's great to see it open and serving the community.While services have been ramping up since March, today marks the “official” opening of the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital. There are many people who helped get us here but last week I held a special event to honour the Sunshine Coast University Hospital Action Group (SCUHAG) for working tirelessly to usher the hospital to construction despite some immense hurdles. Congratulations to Maureen and the SCUHAG team and thank you for being passionate advocates of the new hospital. ... See MoreSee Less

Rail Fail is leaving you stranded this Easter

Look at the new "Road Safety" TV Commercial the Labor Govt. has made. A "Tradie" is portrayed as the bad guy but who is committing the greater offence? Answer: The "Mother" who enters the road from her home in front of traffic which she must have seen beforehand. This is a similar theme to their last commercial where an apparently suicidal girl agrees that she will run out from between parked cars the next day in front of a driver who is speeding a bit. Why do they have to feature females doing stupid things when they are trying to develop their road safety message? Despite the hundreds of real life road fatalities they could draw from they invent a story that is less than real. A story where the "Mother" is portrayed as the victim but obviously is the major offender. Typical dumb Labor.

They can't afford drivers they've employed too many Public Non-Servants. Can't even fill in forms properly to help the people of NQ after the cyclone. You are a complete dill palachook time to go and let competent people run this state.

Unreliability is on every line. Along with constantly changing timetable. (Changing for the worse) An absolute embarrassment...

Almost as impressive, as the NBN fail and selling Telstra just before a telecommunications revolution and mistaking a lever action shotgun for some kind of new superweapon. All parties have too many lawyers elected to various parliaments. Like social workers they are lacking in common sense and practicality. The rife stupidity in all levels of government is the result of this. Having a person with a Business degree and an accountancy qualification in charge of a railway is a good example of how large corporations lose their competitiveness and go broke. This sort of stupidity should have been abandoned in the 1980's. Railways and innovation need engineers in charge.

It was LIBERALS that sack the train drivers& guards? Labor is now training new ones? LIBERALS caused the troubles that LABOR has today? It can't be fixed over night!! Retraining takes months?

I was going to catch a train to the Gold Coast today. The wonderful QR planning for Easter meant 2 buses & 2 trains taking 2.5 hours to reach Coomera. Needless to say I drove & it took one hour.

Pity Newman sacked all those Qld rail staff. How many more are you going to employ to solve the real problem .. lack of trained staff?

I would have watched this video, but my internet is so poor its starts and stops all the time. Getting NBN soon though. Thanks Big Mal.

So was there any? cough cough! Nothing in the news....hum sounds like QLNP are fear mongering because they actually don't have any real working policies!

Get these grubby snought in the trough pollies out of the limos and onto public transport and then watch it change

I've regularly experienced delays of 90-120 minutes at night with the trains! It's ridiculous!

So your policies when Newman Cantdo was in charge are your only thing to talk about?

The LNP is destined to be in the garbage bin for a long time. They are run by morons.

We have been left stranded by all the big party's. It's time to give Pauline ago at it. At least she is for the people .

#railfail #laborfail #KerriAnneForRedcliffe

All caused because all you Dickheads voted Labor.

at this stage ...$$$ money wise a bus way should of been built ...instead....

It was one way of cutting down on paying penalty rates. Well done Labor.

#laborrailfail #labor #fail

Well said Kerri-Anne Stick with it

It was bloody Newman who sacked all the train drivers

Tim Nicholls is nothing more than a joke.

Rotten train system but a bloody disgrace the Liberals

The Palaszczuk Labor Government botched the introduction of ridesharing services like Uber. We’ve announced our plan to level the playing field. Watch and share Tim Nicholls MP and Andrew Powell’s announcement >>

Tim Nicholls MP
Before you get too excited, it's not carpool karaoke - even better, it's the LNP - Liberal National Party's personalised transport industry policy!

Andrew Powell and I took a ride with Ronnie Wood in his taxi to discuss our policy which will restore confidence to the personalised transport industry and ensure a level playing field for taxi and ridesharing operators.

Fair laws will return value to the taxi and limo industries and will be a win-win for those who use both rideshare services and taxis.

I certainly hope so, this is so unfair to the Taxi industry and the millions of dollars good people have invested in to it. Technology is great, but a respectfull and balanced approach to its implementation in industry is paramount.

Taxi services dug their own grave with slow unreliable service, lack of ability to keep up with technology in a meaningful way (Yellow cab app is so bad it just shouldn't exist) and most of all, expensive rates.If ride sharing services can get the technology spot on, pricing cheap and service... well, still questionable, but 2 out of 3 better, why should we have to continue to put up with sub par taxi services?This isn't a government issue, its competing businesses, the existing businesses are failing to perform and need to do better if they wish to remain competitive.(all that said, i really do want to see Taxi services lift their game and continue to compete, the market needs competition to remain fair for the consumer)

Taxi's are a relic of an earlier time. Consumers have seen the benefits of ride sharing and don't want to go back. The LNP I would vote for would be removing regulation not creating ways to prevent free enterprise and better services for their constituents. This policy smacks of cronyism.

People of Queensland in general are angry and frustrated thanks to the Puddleduck's governments botched introduction of everything!

Hang on, taxis and ride sharing, Ubers, offer a different service. Taxis can use bus lanes, pull up on the side of roads in bus stops, have cab ranks and can be booked in advance. For use of public areas they should pay a reasonable subscription which was not the case. Ubers are cheap and convenient but not always available.I would like automatic charging to a taxi app so we don't need to settle with the cab driver at the end. Ie. Cab stops, I exit and walk off.

You guys are kidding. The taxi industry screwed everyone for years. Too expensive, poor service, rude drivers ,dirty cabs and you want that again! Please give me a break. I wouldn't catch a cab if they were the only transport left.

What a lot of BS by the Taxi Licence owner mafia, I understand, if you pay up to 500 grand for a licence you want that money some how back. Taxis had a monopoly for decades and ripped locals off big time! I been charged 78 bucks from airport to Trinity Beach at 5 am, incl. 10% credit card surcharge. Uber 32 dollars! Uber drivers need the same credentials as a Taxi drivers. Already checked by Dept. of Transport! For safety, an Uber rider get a photo of driver, Star rating, Rego, Car model, mobile number, estimate fair price, time till pick up and drop off. With a cabbie bugger all! Most likely grumpy, unfriendly, no speaking english driver. Agree, I would be grumpy too, if I had to drive for the licence owner 12 h shift 5 days in a row! Thats why already a few cabbie driver jumped ship! For an Uber driver its his own business, own car, he pays for all expenses. He is interested delivering better service to halve the price. As Uber just been here for 3 weeks, we don't have as many drivers as we should to fulfil the high demand! Be assured Uber will getting better with every week! By the way, did I mention that I am one of the first Uber driver? Proud to deliver a better service for less money for the locals and visitors of Cairns☝️

Government should stop making everything licenced. They should get the hell out of business and let the free market decide.

The taxi industry used to sit a airport and pick travellers up that didn't know where they were going and charge them heaps.Sane as when exporting was on they tried to do it to me but I been a loyal woke up to their tricks give me Urber.

bwhahahahahah.... level.... nice one.... how about government remove themselves and let nature take it's place in the free market...

So the party of the free market becomes the party of government mandated cartels? Cool.

Make Uber have the same rules with Taxi including licence costs or just ban it as Labor don't care about fairness and business

I wish the government would stop trying to interfere with these things and let the market work itself out

Stop charging thousands for a taxi licence and then let the free market decide, done, problem solved.

The first thing the LNP needs to do is distance themselves from the big TURD in Canberra.

So you will sell out the Taxi drivers with their expensive licences purchased from the government too.

Its change... Why support taxis and not other businesses that are exposed to change.

This government only thinks about where they can benefit from not about the needy shame on them and those that follow this terrible office

The people of Queensland love her 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻

Won't stop Uber.

Time to get into the 21st century!

You guys tell lies and more lies.

How much is a taxi license and why?

I'm travelling between Bowen and Proserpine with Barnaby Joyce, Dale Last, George Christensen and Andrew Wilcox discussing what Governments can do to help with disaster relief following Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

Farmers need certainty, because if our farmers can't get back to growing, all Queenslanders will end up paying more for fresh produce.

I'd like to see whether the all mighty $ dose get to the farmers. This is election votes they want. Where is the $ and resourses for help. Haven't heard a farmer whom has had help.!!!!

At least Pauline Hatfull has the welfare of Australians at heart. Joyce and the other hanger ons are getting their dials on TV and in the papers, hope they take notice of the big swings against them at the bi elections. What about money for a dam here in Townsville. Would be better spent here than given to Indonesia.

The LNP would rather give millions to Indonesia in aid than give it to our own farmers. LNP give $365 million to Indonesia, but can't give the same $$$ to our own farmers. One nation to restore Australian values for the people.

Build a Dam! Run a water pipeline from north Queensland to water our inland farms. M

So you are travelling with the child man Joyce, maybe he will now actually do what he said he would!

At long last, they are doing something about it

More hot air! Farmers left high and dry.

LNP - Liberal National Party

Tim Nicholls MP has been from Townsville to Yatala meeting with Qlders affected by Cyclone Debbie and the floods and the Qlder spirit is alive and well.

Tim Nicholls MP
Queenslanders may get knocked about, but boy we stand tall when the chips are down.

Cyclone Debbie has tested us, shaken us, hurt us. At the same time, it has brought out the best in us.

I was at the iconic Yatala Pies this morning - yet another victim of Debbie's wrath. But it, like Queensland, will fight back. We've recovered from these calamities before and we'll do so again.

Many other Queenslanders, including business owners, are in the same boat as Yatala. We promise to be with you all the way as you rebuild and get back on your feet.

Why?

Because we are all Queenslanders and that's how we roll.
