It’s time for rural and regional Queensland to share the spoils

Shane Knuth – Rob Katter

In front of 19 different media people, KAP members Rob Katter and Shane Knuth outlined their priorities for rural and regional Queensland on the Speakers Green at Parliament House this afternoon.

Saying it was time rural and regional Queensland enjoyed the spoils in terms of jobs and industry, Mr Katter said they would work with any Government that was prepared to unlock that prosperity that was lying latent in the regions.

Rob Katter Member for Mount Isa said he was bound to deliver to his electorate first, and listed no asset sales as top of the list and many others that all adhere to the theme of productive infrastructure not populist infrastructure.

“Dams, roads and rail lines not sports stadiums and traffic tunnels,” Mr Katter said.

Mr Knuth said the KAP MPs had not yet spoken to either Labor or LNP, but were open to those discussions.

“We’re basically not interested in the great Labor Party or the great Liberal Party. What we are interested in are the best interests of Queenslander’s and rural and regional Queensland.

“We don’t have any favouritism whatsoever.”

The MPs pointed out that “Labor and LNP are one scandal away or one member quitting, from needing our vote if one side takes majority government.

“They will be a lot kinder to us than they have been in the past

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.
