I am over the moon that Peter Dutton is going to get rid of your scumbag Turnbull these reports are all but confirmed thank God Australia might have a true Conservative Prime Minister

Three champions for Queensland standing right there. 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺👏👏👏

The balance of power has to be with the independent parties till we break the big two. It is not a democracy when behind closed doors an elections results are engineered by the swapping of preferences. Who engineered this undemocratic crooked system ? If this was a game of poker there would be cries of foul. They are hoping that the voters is lazy and will take the easy option.

How about more investment in jobs, not punishing the unemployed? To get a job I have to: - fix my teeth - get bifocalsThe card is not going to help us in medical need. Get a job? How about get me a dentist who is bulk billing

That goose you put up to be Deputy PM is an imbecile. Not debating policies but just attacking opposition MP's... very disgusting

lnp sitting candidates be prepared for the fact that you will be facing international criminal charges

#Abbottout #LNPout #DumpDutton #cashout #reefgate #RacismNoWay #auspol

Yes please for a LNP leadership spill

Dutton is election poison. Just hand Shorten the keys now.

Labor have closed maternity wards across rural and regional Queensland.

Mothers are having to give birth on the side of the road, hundreds of kilometres away from the nearest hospital.

Meanwhile, Labor's top health priority is to rename Lady Cilento Children's Hospital. 🙄

Labor has never cared about people's health and Anasfailure Palasucks is no different, spend health budget on anything but health !

I wonder how many of you know apart from how ridiculous it is to change the name but just how expensive it would be. Think all uniforms, signage, paperwork, digital images, advertising etc etc

Liberals all of a sudden care about hospitals. You have been in government for 5 years, and your feeling fed up. FFS.

Labor thinks mothers should endure hard labour? Avoid Labor for a better labour.

Hopeless Qld Govt; time for change.

For goodness sake... don’t we have more important stuff to think about...it’s a great facility as I’ve had two of my grandsons treated there...Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital Brisbane... what a great name ... named for a pioneer in this field ... move on People 😷

Heckle and Jeckle at it again. The LNP and the Labor Parties are traitors and deserve to be in gaol. It's time for new parties with new ideas and a new vision for all Australians

If men had to give birth.......

Reopen them immediately

It’s the Matar hospital and always will be

Jackies children hospital

Terry Mackenroth Hospital?

Aren't there more important priorities than renaming a hospital. We honour a great Queenslander with the name. If you must, put "public" in the name. Those maternity wards need to be re-opened. It is putting babies lives at risk. It is not acceptable.

Our government, all of them have failed Australia 😡

If I was giving birth these days I wouldn’t have time to travel 52km to hospital I feel for the young mothers today

Same in Victoria. New Royal Women's Hospital simply named "the Women's" by Labor. New Peter McCallum Cancer Centre was told not to include a Private hospital despite the huge amount of extra money it would bring. Labor always ideology over common sense

it is labors way they kill it off then a big drive on health and education at the next election an the people fall fot it every time

Please LNP are you seriously trying to brand yourself as good for hospitals....that a bit rich....

I really hope the government is going to give up on the name change. It will cost TOO MUCH MONEY!!!

Most people call it the kids hospital anyway . This government needs to go but it will be voted back as they make empty promises before each election . And they are believed

Labour hates the bush, always has

It all about what they think will win votes, funny thing is Qld Children's Hospital was Campbell Newman's first choice name for the Hospital

Labor has failed but so have the LNP.

Shame Labor Shame 😡

Reopen them immediately !!

Labor have closed maternity units right across rural and regional Queensland, putting the lives of babies at serious risk.
Some mothers are giving birth on the side of the road because they can't get to the hospital in time, often located hundreds of kilometres away.

It's not good enough and something's got to change. Stand against Labor's maternity cuts by signing the petition: bit.ly/2w0i3MH

Instead of dealing with the crisis they've created, Labor are more focused on renaming a Children's Hospital. What about the children and mothers in rural and regional Queensland?

Maybe all the parties should try working TOGETHER to fix the problems....... seems to me the biggest problem Australia has at the moment is all the politicians & their back stabbings of their colleagues 🤬🤬🤬

Do something then I’ll a supporter for a very long time and you are throwing away any chances we wil be under a labor Gov for a long period Go coal power Help small business Help the farmers Go back to the foundation of what LNP is please

And so have the LNP!

Never happened when Joh was in charge!

Well why didn't the Liberal Party come out with this " information " prior to the Super Sat bi elections ? No, instead like the last Federal election, they let Labor spread lies.

Accommodation being made available to out of town mothers is crucial and the travel subsidy does assist with that (but not enough) My son had HIE which means if weren’t at a hospital with a level three special care nursery he would have died, I do not see the benefit in having small rural hospitals that are incapable of handling crisis births (you do not ever know how a birth will go) is actually not a good thing - yes there is an inconvenience and it is awful to spend up to four weeks away from home with other kids and without support but it beats a birth going wrong. I live 250km from our closest hospital and was away under subsidy for our second child for four weeks. Unpleasant but safe to be nearer to services when I went into labour.

Well yous are in Power so why is the government not making a fuss about this

Would rather spend money on useless football stadiums

and this from a gov with more women at the top than men....must be those unions pulling those puppets on their strings

I would love to share this but I have concerns when it comes to Labor and LNP The lies and exaggeration are hard to trust

Perhaps if the Lnp stopped pulling all the funding from public hospitals and trying to give it to the big rich corporations our health system would be a bit better off

Within weeks of learning it would receive a grant worth nearly half a billion dollars, the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) Foundation treated mining and banking executives to a weekend of snorkelling and sunset drinks.But the trip also included accommodation and meals at the expensive Qualia Resort, trips to yacht clubs and guided snorkelling tours.Attendance was only available to the affiliates who paid the $20,000 foundation membership fee, including BHP, JP Morgan, Rio Tinto, Shell, AGL, Commonwealth Bank, Deutsche Bank, Boral Limited and many other companies.The foundation set 25 per cent of that fee aside to fund the Hamilton Island trip, rather than ensuring all of it was spent on projects to improve the reef. ******* not impressed and by the way Abbott is not right saying few people are interested in Climate Change as all the people I know are. Abbott and Joyce are known for their deceit to voters and i have no idea why anyone keeps trotting them out.

this is state Labor party , bet next election Bill Shorten will blame federal govt libs for this but remember its state Labor our friend Annie Pallachook

And the ALP has the cheek to criticise the LNP for asking nurses to accept massive redundancy offers which most grabbed with both hands and here they are closing maternity units all over the state and babies loosing their lives to save a few miserable dollars

Unfortunately this is why people vote this way. Because they want one particular party in. Now you are seeing the results

And yet people actually vote for this party.

It's terrible. Such a Backward move. I wonder how they would cope with having to spend 4 weeks or more waiting for their baby without family or friends.

I'm definitely not a labor voter but this is actually a complex issue. We've seen the same thing happen here in WA but it's not so much about funding as it is about birth numbers and the danger of staff not getting enough experience when numbers are low. Of course if they are cutting maternity staff numbers across the state then that's a different matter.

11.5 years ago I had to drive all the way from Bowen to Proserpine to have my baby girl. This isn't something new.

All services should be returned to Nambour and other hospitals. We need both Nambour and Kawana Hospitals. Kawana is not big enough and is 30mins drive away. My husband , recently, had to go to Noosa twice within 3 months for surgery as a public patientlas he would have had to wait too long at Kawana

They really can’t run anything properly. Union twits. Why we vote them in really amazes me. Wake up people Australia is stuffed. We used to have a good country when our white Australia policy was enforced. 💩

It's not just maternity departments, there are perfectly good hospitals closed down in so many areas, then the complaints are about waiting list and lack of beds in the next closest hospital. What the bloody hell do you expect, when everyone in THIS area has to go to THAT area?

Has any of you thought that some of these closed because a lot of women wouldn’t have their babies in smaller hospitals. They opted to go away to private hospitals which is their choice.

I think it is wrong that the maternity hospital was closed down in favour of Hervey Bay. This means that no baby is born in a Maryborough which is the fourth oldest town in Queensland. There have been many children born between Maryborough and Hervey away. What is on their Birth Certificate. Born on side of the road?

Are you lot going to bugger off the naughty sootys running amok in Victoria as well?

RETURN TO SENDER!!!👍

Please get rid of Malcolm Turnbull he has destroyed the Liberal party, I will never vote Libs again while he is leader. It’s like Shorten in disguise!

Whilst I agree with the action, Surely this should be announced by the Australian Government, NOT by a couple of minority political parties! 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺

I guess this was Peter Sutton's actons he would be a strong leader and get rid of all the undesirable low-life scum in Australia..

What about the other half a million

Great news👌

Only a couple of hundred thousand to go...

JIHAD ME AT HELLO

Send their families packing too

Using the DT as a reference is likened to serving feces at a banquet!

Good news for a change thanks mr dutton.

That’s a good start

Well done Peter Dutton.

Fantastic.

And there are some people out there who want this clown to run the country. Run it into the ground more likely.

The reason he doesn’t know how to drive is because he has a driver that usually does that for him, oh and he also has a butler, and probably a nanny, the big sook!

Shifty Shorten, just can't shift a Cruiser into gear..

My day was going great until you put this, lying, thieving, communist, on here. When is his caught case for ripping of his scab mates in the unions???

I really wonder if he realizes that is where our food comes from, see his pants all pressed with a crease I bet our farmers would love to have the time to wear pressed pants. hes useless

You can bag him all you like but he is your next Prime Minister.

He can’t think for himself, he does what the unions tell him to do.

Move over Russell Coight " Little Billy Wants your Job "

Bill Shorten looked sooo uncomfortable with his stupid cap which no one wears out in the bush. Not enough protection from the sun!!!!!! Can"t drive a geared car bloody hopeless!!!!!! No union mates around him and no understanding. What a goose!!!!

How can he run a country he can barely drive a car!

BIll can’t say what he’s thinking cos no one has told him what to think!!

He can't even get a Land Cruiser to move! He really has no idea! What a twerp

All Politicians should get out i nto all Outback and Regional areas 2 to 3 times a year to actually see what is going on. They might really understand ahead of times likje this how hard it is to live in these regions. I live well west of the Great Dividing Range and haved not see a Pollie in this region since before the last state Election. So how do they know whats really happening for themselves 1st hand.

Great comedy. Better than Russell Coight.

Billies outback tour, saying what he knows ....... or not..... can’t drive ... 😂 😂 😂

so Dutton is considering a challenge on the Prime Minister, well all I can say is.... BRING BACK TONY ABBOTT. but please get rid of Turnbull.

What an absolute flog Shorten is! This video proves that if he gets to be Prime Minister he can't be trusted

let's make sure he isn't our next p.m.

And that goes for the liberal party as well as you try and move to the left, it is time to load up the senate with people who will only accept real values until you lot wise up

Shorten and the Greens will probably be happy with the drought as it will be helping meet the green house gas emissions from farting animals

Can’t drive a real car lol 😂 you have no idea shorten was that your first time on a farm ? Looks like it

He wasn't in a hurry to discuss same-sex marriage, foreign aid or saving the planet from climate change........

this would be funny if it was,t true

He is no bushy What is he trying to prove

It’s all just for the cameras! He couldn’t give a rats *@#$ about the outback or the farmers.

The ALP suck but so does the LNP.

Nothing mentioned here about the THE REEFGATE RORT EXPLAINED HERE In a private meeting on 9 April this year, Prime Minister Turnbull met with an old business acquaintance. There was no public servant at this meeting, just one other cabinet minister.The Prime Minister told his old mate that the small charity he chaired, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation (GBRF), was to be given almost half-a-billion dollars of public money. The GBRF chair was surprised. He had never tendered for the money. Had never even asked for it. Indeed, he had no immediate way to spend the money, his charity having only six full-time employees. But he accepted the money nonetheless.When the GBRF told his managing director about the meeting, she said it was “like we had just won the Lotto!” But here’s where it gets truly concerning.In what could be construed as a calculated insult to environmentalists, the scientific community and everyone who actually cares about the future of the Great Barrier Reef, the Foundation’s “partners” make up a veritable "Who’s Who" of big business and the mining industry, including Qantas, Boeing, Rio Tinto, BHP, Peabody Energy, Shell, Downer EDI Mining, Worley Parsons, Wesfarmers and Aurizon — the very ones, arguably, responsible for the Reef becoming bleached in the first place.And the chair of the Foundation? The one who was in that 9 April meeting with Turnbull and Energy and Environment Minister Frydenberg? That was former BHP director and Esso Australia CEO John Schubert. Esso is the Australian subsidiary of ExxonMobil — not only the world’s biggest oil company, but also the world’s biggest funder of climate change denial. They also sank the Exxon Valdez oil tanker off Alaska, causing one of the most devastating environmental disasters in human history — so they do have some experience dealing with damaged coastlines.

Eva Braun at her best ruining Qld.

Ohhhhhhhhhh.., the irony indeed. Abolish the preferential voting system, and place genuine democracy back into politics. ENOUGH is enough, of the graft and corruption. Let alone the missing Commonwealth games overstayers, still here...

Another whinging opposition LNP leader. She's a joke.

Shame that no one believes any politician whose lips are moving.

$444 million straight into your swiss bank accounts, you're a disgrace of a government.

Corruption kings, the LNP and the Labor Parties are traitors and deserve to be in gaol. It's time for new parties with new ideas and a new vision for all Australians

Yeah but look what you have done by tying Welfare payments to vaccination status , that is unconstitutional . You really need to tell your Zionist Jew PM who is linked to pharmaceutical companies to reverse that decision.

Why would you send me an offer to join you and your pathetic FB page when i am a patriotic AUSTRALIAN? Anyone who votes for LNP, Labour and the Greens are destroying our great country You disgust me to the highest level possible

many people are misnderstanding what this cash is for, not to feed the stock its to feed their family, keep food on the table and the household bills paid. State [nsw]/Fed gov have already put in combined $1.5B for stock feed andother assistance.

joke2 paymentsmake it $12,000 every 3 months if we can afford billions in overseas giveaway money we can afford to actually help our own

Get real Malcolm this is not fixing the problem it is just putting a bandaid on it

What a joke immediate relief for farmers $12,000 we just gave how much to Bali $1 million for their earthquake relief come on looking around backyard first thank you

Get rid if Turnbull as Alan Jones said tonight, doesn't belong, never belonged, just go

how much pollution and poison have the farms put out there and in our river

It’s chicken feed...

Stop giving our money to other countries. We need our hard earned taxes here They may have disasters but we also have one at the moment with our drought. Our money for our farmers !!

And 444 million dollars for his mates. Not for the reef 'cause the reef doesn't know what to do with money. Note. $444,000,000 what the farmers could do with that. Or think how much nail varnish it could buy.

What about the dam Tony Abbott wanted built......oh that's right, canned because it was an ABBOTTS idea

Great work but unfortunately overshadowed by the 80 page 200+ question application form. Just get this fixed quickly!!

I am happy to provide a home in Australia for people who are legal immigrants. However it cannot come at the detriment of or own folks. Put Australia first

Thank you for the invite to "LIke" the LNP page. When Turnbull and the stick insect are well gone I will maybe consider it .

What about it the 444 million given to GBRF without cabinet approval? That money needs to be given back and spent on our farmers. Disgraceful, Turnbull should be thrown out. His wife used to sit on this board, all very suspicious, money for mates.

So the banks that make millions and the councils that do nothing for us could give relief today for all farming communities. Waiver the rates and interest in loans, extend it to all communities affected.

I think you don't understand the meaning of "IMMEDIATE"! And I'm picking the farmer pictured is either an actor or haven't given consent for you to use her picture. DISHONEST FRAUDS!

People just don't read things properly ,but I know farmers appreciate it .

I would like to know why it has taken so long for this and any relief for the farmers this drought has been going on for years now and nothing until now we have had people and some organisations helping out for years with no support from the government governments today only seem to worry about overseas aide and migrants nothing for Australians. This should have been happening long before now. Just ask those people who have been doing hay runs trying to help out whilst you have np buried your heads in the sand

This is ridiculous! This is an emergency situation just like any natural disaster. Get a Peter Cosgrove person onboard, mobilise the army and move water and food from available sources to help each and every farmer NOW!!!! PLEASE!!!!

The government has given over $500 million .We don't hear about that .

And an inch thick paper wad to fill in to get it

By far no where enough. Declare it a natural disaster at least.

so little and so many strings attached

It’s a good start, but it’s not enough

LNP should be embarrassed at such a paltry amount and the amount of paperwork required - Your treatment of farmers and all Australians is shameful.

That's the frightening bit...alp will probaply walk away with election..as turnbulls rotted persona has spread to all corners of the party

Lower taxes. Stronger borders. No gender terms.

Why is it that one works and pays tax on our earnings. Then we pay Tax again, when we spend our earnings. That a double Taxation.What will come next. "SHUSH" they haven't though of this one yet. Why not Tax Pensioners. We have been getting away with it for years. Don't let Malcolm see this though.........

But no action, no real clue, and no will to do anything! Get a life guys, get rid of Turdball

Less social services, schools, hospitals etc 🙄

Sorry, but many of us have stopped listening, the damage done to the party by Turnbull, Bishop, Pyne, Payne, Morrison and Frydenburg is too big to ignore, even by a person like me who had voted for the party for about 40 years.

Awesome slogan. Keep pushing that agenda & you will definitely solidify certain voters votes 🙌.

Julia bishop got to go Turnbull got to go

Less corruption, less Aussie tax dollars for the “good neighbours“, less imports of food - more Aussie produce, less tax dollars misuse for dumb political ideas, less abuse of powers on all 3 government levels....the list is endless

Michael says, Lower taxes, stronger borders, really? Various ministers were interviewed on TV yesterday and they all contradicted each other on aspects of the NEG. Some said it’s in, some said it’s out, and some didn’t know. Well when your Government has descended into a rabble then the question of lower taxes, stronger borders or whatever would depend on who you spoke too - then the only thing you have to work out is do you believe them, come to think of it, how do you believe any of them, how do believe anything they say when they don’t even know themselves?

stop giving our tax money to overseas like there is no tomorrow people in our own country are struggling morelmp will be out at the next election

If that is not a calling for support for Peter Dutton, I don’t know what is!

Stronger boarders huh! Then stop bringing in so many immigrants.

Surely we can have a more engaging vision than this?

But no leadership! The federal government is a shambles.

🎆🎊🎉🎇 NO handouts for the BANKS. Senate votes against unfair tax cuts.

Is Mr Dutton taking over ?

better vote for Australian Conservatives then ;o

And new leadership

Fewer morals

WHEN?

Higher debt, lower services.

HELP THE FARMERS!!!!!!!!!!

I cal BS!

Qld farmers have been in drought for a few years,, nsw had a good year last year now everybody is feeling so bad for them because they are spending a bit on feed instead of their Mercedes or half million n dollar tractor,, priorities are controlled by the media!!!

Start reaching real targets against climate change you just gave nearly half a billion dollars to some fake GBRF who wont be fighting for climate change stopping adani or the expansion or dredging at point about mine the biggest threats to our reef its just another waste of tax payers money

Then promise to build a pipe line, from the Gold Coast desalination plant heading west across Qld. Zigzagging from dam to dam!

Build some infrastructure!!!! Dams and pipes. And don't give us the stuff about the Greens stopping you, or the opposition stopping you.

I arrived in Jan.1966. It rained and rained. I was not happy BUT WAS TOLD IN NO UNCERTAIN MANNER to shut up as the 5-year drought had broken! I sincerely hope those out there can can hold out till January. Best wishes to all on the land.

I'm sorry but farming isn't a way of life. It's a business enterprise that needs to be managed properly with sufficient funds to get through the bad tines. Catte, Sheep meat and wool prices have been at record highs the last few years. Livestock starving to death now is a disgrace and brought on by bad management.

No water resources built (thanks to the greens) but at least some support at last!

The LNP and the Labor Parties are traitors and deserve to be in gaol. It's time for new parties with new ideas and a new vision for all Australians
