KAP will put wheels in motion to create new State of North Queensland

October 27, 2017 – Leader of the state KAP party and Member for Mount Isa Robbie Katter has released his policy regarding the formation of new North Queensland State.

 “If the KAP holds the balance of power at the next election we will immediately take the first step toward the establishment of North Queensland as a separate state.

 “The first step will be the establishment of a committee of independent experts with knowledge of the legal, economic and social factors to be considered and addressed to facilitate the establishment of the state of North Queensland.

 “The independent committee will develop a ‘roadmap’, that will define the steps required to establish the state of North Queensland,’’ Robbie said.

Robbie Katter in the next Parliament will put the wheels in motion to create a new state of North Queensland.

 

Mr Katter said a logical starting point of a border when splitting Queensland in two, would be the Tropic of Capricorn.

 “If this border was adopted it would place Rockhampton in the state of North Queensland.

 “Crucially our indigenous population would also have to be closely consulted,’’ Robbie said.

 “Robbie says the Australian constitution is well prepared for the creation of a new state.

 “A new State can always be created by an Act of the Commonwealth Parliament. The constitution has provisions included so this can take place. It’s not as if this has never been considered before.

A new state can only be created if the State in which it is to be created holds a successful referendum of the voters of that State.

 “However, there has not been a new state created in Australia since 1859 – during the same time the United States of America created almost 20.’’

 Under our unicameral system of Parliament, Queenslanders have been dominated by major parties which focus on winning votes in the South-East of Queensland. Meanwhile, they take the wealth that’s generated in regional areas and funnel it down to their South-East Queensland seats.

 “North and Western Queensland are economic powerhouses. Real Gross Regional Product in Mackay was more than twice that of the state average while the North West was three times the average.

“About 60 per cent of Queensland’s export industries are above the Tropic of Capricorn and contain only 20% of the population.

“Given the decline of the north and the regions under multiple ALP and LNP Governments we believe the time is right to once again seriously consider the creation of separate North Queensland State.

 “It would result in an immediate financial return back to those who created the wealth in Queensland,’’ Robbie said.

 North Queenslander Bill Bates is currently touring Queensland in an effort get people to sign his own personal petition to create a second Queensland state.

 Generally, petitions which attract 10,000 signatures will be debated in parliament.

  1. Yeah…and we will relax the firearms and self defense laws so that we can protect ourselves and the new state from enemies foreign and domestic without begging for permission slips to be signed…right?

    • Hi Slave Nation if we get our new state of North Queensland we will have our own laws. Hopefully in the new state’s constitution, political parties will be outlawed. Although there is no mention of parties in the original Commonwealth Constitution of Australia, we have been invaded by them. They are in effect corporations with managing directors and board members. They cannot adjudicate on criminal law because there is none, only civil or common law. It is a shame the ALP/LNP corporations ‘voted’ down Robbie Katter’s amendments to stop the reclassification of the innocuous Adler shotgun. They have upset the state’s 600,000 corporate registered shooters and the other 100,000 unregistered shooters. Look out for the One Nation/KAP alliance.Ed

  2. Is this the same Robby that appears to be stimulated by the word “GOVERNANCE” instead of the Government? The word Government is in and of its self bad enough but Robby appears to go where “one” should, like the plague never so much as entertain as that we find ourselves!

  3. people are more than able to govern themselves they don’t need any bureaucrat to decide for them you are the best judge of how to properly manage your affairs not some pencil pusher.
