Hopper says LNP Government ‘hiding something’

Ray Hopper. Katters Australian Party Member for Condamine

Rays Rounds for week commencing 23rd June 2014

As we know each year in June the Budget is brought down by the Treasurer of which ever Government is in power, then as has always been the case, two full weeks are set aside post budget in July so as each Minister can be questioned for one full day on their budget projections relevant to their portfolio. This gives non-government members a chance to question the Ministers and their Departments performance. Unfortunately, this Government has now condensed the hearings to only 3 days which is ludicrous especially given the increased number of Members in the LNP Parliament.

What is this Government trying to hide by rushing through this extremely important process? There needs to be thorough parliamentary scrutiny to create transparent government. Why has the Estimates Committee been reduced to this shabby form of lip service to democracy? When the LNP were the Opposition they always took two full weeks during this Estimates time to scrutinise Government … but now the goal posts are well and truly shifted and not for the betterment of Queensland, I can assure you.

Until next week,

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.
