LNP SCAMS QUEENSLAND ON CLIMATE

Scott Morrison and his hopelessly divided Coalition have revealed a fake plan to reach net zero emissions. It’s a scam on Queenslanders, with no legislated targets and no changes to address National Party concerns.

Scott Morrison and his MPs are speaking with forked tongues. They’re saying one thing to South East Queensland and another to our regions.

He and his Liberal MPs tell the southeast that their net zero “plan” shows they’re dealing with climate change, and then he gets Nationals MPs to oppose it in the bush. How can anyone trust someone who wants to have it both ways?

Queenslanders can see through this spin from a Prime Minister who simply won’t take responsibility for the big issues facing our state.

This fortnight the Nationals have spectacularly failed regional Queenslanders.

After all their bluster and promises to fight for our regions, their “deal” with the Liberals only secured a slideshow of Scott Morrison’s existing policies and a $31,000 pay rise for Resources Minister Keith Pitt.

Mr Pitt - who has been promoted to Cabinet after being dumped four months ago - is the only Queenslander whose job the National Party has protected.

Once again, the Nationals show the only jobs they care about are their own. Once again, they show they are just Liberal lap dogs.

All today shows is that we have a fake plan, with a fake target, from a fake PM and a bunch of fake farmers and fake miners.

Queensland deserves better than a scam from a bunch of fakes.
