It was a scratching report that shone a light on the integrity crisis engulfing the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

Any action has been deferred for 3 years because it would be unfair to her supporters.

Gotten worse, that's what.

It is what Queenslanders wanted and voted for.

Not a lieing bastard like scome

It appears that the Albanese Government is preparing to break their pre-election promises on tax cuts for millions of Australians.

These legislated tax cuts would mean 95 per cent of Australian taxpayers would pay no more than 30 cents in the dollar.

The Coalition will fight hard to ensure these tax cuts happen, as planned. We will stand up for hard-working Australians and for lower taxes.

No surprises there it is Labour we’re talking about 😉

These tax cuts should happen. Currently, we’re bordering on working for the government with current tax rates. But, that’s what Labor wants. Socialists.

Exactly what we expect from Labor - by the next election there will be a full catalogue of broken promises!

Well there’s a surprise…

So the media honeymoon will be coming to an end shortly and Labor will have to stump up with answers and solutions, not just bag out the previous government - who by the way their strategies allowed an extra $50B royalties income during high commodities prices. The endangered species here will be middle-class working Australians who have been responsible, saved and planned for their futures - Labor will now start fleecing us to pay for all their Greens promises.

It was only going to help the wealthy! Not the ordinary tax payer!

Anything is likely from them

I’m afraid to ask what’s next

Rescinding the tax cuts is a major plank in Albo's plan...

These tax cuts should be scraped for the time being. Now is not the time.

This is how Labor works. “Items they think nobody will notice” cut them out or try and substantiate their decision . “Items the Greens or Left wing ABC Journalists have an issue with” = massive knee jerk reaction!

My conscience is clear.

Always was going to be scraped Labor equals higher taxes and lower services.

And now we come to the Govt looking at bringing back the radical "wives of ISIS " This is a disgusting idea as these are wives of terrorists who voluntarily left Australia and went to that country to marry terrorists who killed our own soldiers !!!!! They should never be allowed back into our country and never have any benefit from our Public Monies which we have all worked hard for in Australia and is needed for our Australian people here

Hard working Australians deserve a break. Stand fast PD.

Lower power bills—-STRIKE ONE Scrapped tax Bills ——STRIKE TWO One to go.

Are we surprised but the media love them ?

it is what people voted for

If you are so concerned about us, why didn’t you bring this in during your last 9 years of government then?

Broken promise

You know he is a lier, he's labor.

More proof that the ALP just doesn't get it. They really haven't a clue how it all works.

Was always gonna happen

UK has dropped tax cuts A neo-liberal champion has dropped it So Labor is no longer accountable to LNP b/s High taxes & high wages means a healthy nation Neo-liberalism is dead USA fed res empire is dead Fossil consumerism is dead Progressives next target is the 1% & monopoly cabals. The worm has turned The pendulum has reached its arc & Like Truss,you are a dead politician walking

www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2022/oct/05/energy-networks-garnered-10bn-in-supernormal-profi... Liberal don't care - since 2014 when Tony Abbott was Prime-minister: Eastern Australia’s energy consumers have been slugged $10bn that has gone to electricity network providers as “supernormal profits” since 2014 because of flawed regulation, a new report by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis suggests. The report on regulated networks, released on Wednesday, found providers of “pole and wires” such as United Energy, AusNet and Endeavour, extracted payments that were 11% more than costs in the years to 2021. That rate was 67% more than would be considered “normal” profits, the analysis of 18 providers found. Depending on which of the eastern states people resided in, each energy customer paid between $800 and $1,200 more than regulators should have let companies charge. The added payments brought no additional reliability benefits, the report said. A flame blazes on top of flare stacks at Liquefied Natural Gas project site Labor’s deal with gas exporters will lock in high prices, consumer groups say

This is worldwide. Part of Neo-liberalism/corporate template. To force to privatisation. You words would have more effect if you denounced privatisation. But you won't. Which makes you a 2 faced hypocrite playing hard-nosed politics on a subject liberals caused & would never support

Taking care of our mental health is so important – especially for young Australians.

Sadly, almost two in five young people aged between 16 and 24 experience mental illness every year. This is a challenge we cannot ignore.

I couldn't be prouder of the previous Coalition government's record investment into mental health services, including headspace.

By 2026 there will be 50 new Headspace services, bringing the total number to 164 nationally.

That’s why I’m proud to fly the flag for Headspace Day today.

LNP leader needs to be changed

🥔

LNP don’t care about health. NSW hospital patients are waiting up to 36 hours to be admitted through emergency departments, where increasing ambulance ramping and overcrowding are resulting in inadequate and unsafe care. The worsening reality of workload and staffing in the state’s hospitals was canvassed in a parliamentary inquiry on Wednesday, which heard health sector strains were a global phenomenon that had been growing for decades. ——- Former Liberal staffer Brittany Higgins has described feeling “trapped, not human” while her colleague Bruce Lehrmann was allegedly raping her on the couch in former Coalition minister Linda Reynolds’ parliamentary office.

can the cocertives start by being out there louder than ever as to win back then you can fix all , hope you have learned something

The worst thing for our mental health is a labor government!!!

Get lost LNP! You're responsible for the poor mental health of Australians after 10 years of poor leadership and criminal conduct. The lot of you should be SACKED AND JAILED.

You can't teach a dog new tricks and you can't teach Peter Dutton to smile

But they spent half a million dollars on renaming Lady Cilento Hospital, I thought that would have fixed the problem....

Please tell us L.N.P what your plan is too fix this problem. We all know this is a problem,labor has no answers , as it wouldn't be happening if they did, so what will you do

I think it will be good if the LNP finds something positive to say and have the confidence to promote their policies. Harping on about problems common to every state and western country is tedious and a complete turn off.

What’s new We have Labour in power

Health… every opposition partys’ best attack strategy! and every Govts biggest nightmare..

Do you think it’s because the majority of cases are people with no private health insurance and can’t afford the doctor surgery ?

Cannot run an Ambulance roster & wants our support for a $62B reliable oops I meant renewable power grid - Ah no

how many of those are vaxd?

That's disgraceful, but let's face facts the LNP won't do much about it either...only solution is re employ the hundreds of nurses that were sacked by both sides of the political divide...for refusing the jab

it is what people wanted and voted for

It will only get worse while this government continues to spend all the money on under river rail and the Olympics games that most Queensland people do not want and not spend on Hospitals while we have a growing population. If you decide to move to Queensland from another state expect a lower form of medical care

And I am living on targin for my stuffed hip that I carnt get fixed as there way to longer wait times for surgery I see them again on Friday but nouthing ever happens

This is because we have a useless unqualified health minister. She was exactly the same when she was our attorney general and look at the state of law with the kid crime. There is none and the current AT doesn't have a clue how to fix it either.

Yep terrible

Labor, labor, labor…

And Anna and her health minister are still enjoying all the benefits of the gravy train, with full retirement benefits when they get voted out of office. Willing to wager a bet that if it was the other way around there would be a party for them to say goodbye long ago.

While our health staff battled through the pandemic, the Palaszczuk Labor Government cut bed numbers in 24 hospitals. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

These reductions occurred while health staff were battling through the pandemic between 29 September 2021 and 25 May 2022.

New data obtained shows bed numbers across the state remained almost static for a year (an increase of just 0.5%) but alarmingly decreased at 24 hospitals across Queensland.

Sadly it seems way too many ‘love’ AP and her politics! These are the results of those lovies looking after her!

The most useless and cold Premier ever!!

What’s new with her at the helm

It was Newmans fault, he cut the PS.

of course what do you expect from her

It’s what the people wanted and voted for

and they are also doing absolutely nothing about the kid crime across the state. Their attorney general is useless and prefers to advertise what others are doing in their portfolio instead of learning how to operate hers. That's what you get when you put an incompetent person in charge of the most powerful law position in the state I guess. It's time to sack labor!!! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Its time this government woke up and listened to the people that elected them or you will be gone at the next election. THIS STATE HAS A HUGE CHILD CRIME RATE AND YOU ARE DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT. The so called Attorney General, the most powerful lawmaker in the state, (a very minimally qualified lawyer) is NOT doing the job. Both the Premier and the AT do not listen to what the people want and need. The Youth Justice System, introduced by the last incompetent Attorney General, Yvette Darth, DOES NOT WORK. Judges cannot enforce jail or severe monetary fines because of this useless system that the people want to be removed but this government, in particular the three senior women involved, the Premier, The Attorney General and the former Attorney General who is now the Health minister (and making a mockery of that position), will not do as the people want AND REMOVE THE YOUTH JUSTICE SYSTEM, that is a proven failure and a joke that the criminal kids just love as they get no punishment from it. We need an Attorney General who is competent in law and is capable of filling the position and removing this system and replacing it with good strong laws and sentencing that judges can use as guidelines to stop these criminal kids from operating. The Attorney General MUST be competent in writing good strong laws that enable police to jail these criminal kids while they are pending a court date. Bail has been proven to not work as they immediately go and commit the same crimes again while on bail. They need to be held in custody until a court hearing, no matter how long that time is and this time is not to be taken off their sentence. Judges need a good strong set of laws that they can adhere to, to convict these criminal kids. Catch and release, as is currently being used DOES NOT WORK. This is terribly frustrating for our police who do the right thing only to see the offender walk because the judge has no power with this useless Youth Justice System that is currently in place. These kids need a period of time in jail and are made to pay for all the damage they cause to private and public property. A minimum of 3 months in jail is required to a maximum of possibly 3 years (or more) depending on the severity of the crime they have committed. We need more jails and these were offered by Peter Dutton MP but our illustrious Premier said we don’t need them as “there is not a problem in Queensland.” Well Premier get your head out of your wind and solar farms, turn off the Olympics and listen to what the people say. WE WANT JUSTICE FOR THE CRIMES OF THESE KIDS. Along with the damage to public and private property they are killing people and your Youth Justice System is allowing them to get away with it. IT DOES NOT WORK. Repeal it and make this Attorney General earn her huge pay packet or sack her for being incompetent and put someone in the position that knows about law and order and is capable of fixing the system. This requires immediate action now! The laws need to be changed and updated. THE YOUTH JUSTICE SYSTEM MUST BE THROWN OUT. We the people want these kids jailed. We want them to pay for all the damages they cause and if they can’t pay for it then their parents/carers should be held responsible for not being able to control them and they have to pay for the damages. Fix it Premier or the final straw will be at election time when you are shown the door. The people are sick and tired of you clocking up huge debts with your Olympics, wind and solar farms and NOT DOING AS THE PEOPLE ASK AND FIXING THE CHILD CRIME. STOP BANKRUPTING THE STATE WITH YOUR RUBBISH. FIX THE CRIME RATE THAT NEEDS IMMEDIATE ATTENTION. We need at least 4 more jails for these kids. These need to be built near Townsville Mackay and Brisbane or preferably out in the desert with one of them being for children under 18. Then when they reach adult jail age they are transferred to a real jail. NO PAROLE for these offenders. Do the crime, do the time and pay for the damage they cause. All of it. Its no wonder they are like they are when WE don’t have good strong laws to control them as obviously you and your useless Attorney General have no idea about what to do. If people feel as strongly about this as we do then please copy and paste this to all politician’s sites and let’s see if they want to retain power when it comes time to vote. The laws need changing and they need to be changed NOW.

They also attempted to slug another tax on rental property investors which would have worsened the rental crisis, and still don't support the Daintree renewable energy micro grid that will end third world pollution from hundreds of generators. Who voted for these people?

That's how they pretend the hospitals are full for a fake pandemic. But you fools aren't much better

Do not trust Labour 👎🏿

Par for the course for Labor Premiers. Probably couldn't staff the hospitals due to the unvaccinated not being allowed to work. Labor stated straight out that they were going to punish those refusing the jab and they cared not how this would affect the public.

The draft master plan includes high ropes courses, edible gardens, water play areas and pedestrian and cycle bridges in this next exciting phase.

I guess it's OK to spend countless millions of tax payer $ to create and maintain a park that a few thousand regulars will attend, but couldn't afford to maintain it as a golf course for several thousand to attend regularly.

Brisbane needs to make the most of its subtropical climate. Why is the brisbane city council always planting trees/plants that grow in cooler climates? Embrace our climate with more tropical species.

What about the Equestrian Centre for the ‘32 Olympics

Looks and sounds fantastic. Great project. David Defranceski

If the Libs stay in this will never have a cost blow out that every single piece of Labor infrastructure does

Great Place ForThose living on the Streets To Get a Free Feed ?

So you moved on hospitals? Lol Richard Willingham @rwillingham Shadow Health Minister Georgie Crozier says she hasn’t consulted any of the five hospitals that the Opposition are planning to trial PSOs working in major hospitals.

Edible gardens would be a huge plus
