KAP Federal Leader and Member for Kennedy Bob Katter MP following the airing of Channel 7’s Sunday Night program, July 5th, has urged Australians to vote their politicians out at the next election if they don’t stand up for Australian farmers.
“Vote out your MPs and Senators. They are just a bunch of donkeys going down to Canberra and holding up their hands.
“Even the best ones, you only get a couple of squawks out of it.
“Following the program last night our office has been inundated with callers from around Australia.
“There is no solution here outside of a political solution.
“Australians need to tell their members of Parliament if you don’t take a stand and vote in the Parliament to stop this – we will vote you out” “They might say ‘oh no, the ALP might get in’ or ‘oh no, the LNP might get in’. That is irrelevant – all you (Member of Parliament) need to worry about is that you will be out.
The Sunday Night program featured a number of farmers who have been foreclosed on by the banks including Jim and Kim Whelan from Charters Towers, Mr Katter’s home town in the electorate of Kennedy. The program also focused on the increasing Chinese Investment, much of which is not registered and the recently signed Australia-China Free Trade Agreement which allows Chinese workers into Australia.
“Don’t think we are not coming on strong. We have 8 cross benchers in the Senate and the next election should see us with 30% of the Senate – so the main stream parties are not running things anymore, Mr Katter said.
