Queensland LNP and Labor vote together to stop northern farming

North Queensland farmers now will have to apply to a government-appointed rehabilitation commissioner to plough their paddocks or risk a heavy fine.

The Queensland Labor Party with support from the Liberal National Party enacted legislation on August 14 in State Parliament to appoint a mining rehabilitation commissioner including new requirements for farmers in the six Great Barrier Reef catchment areas.

LNP Member for Burdekin Dale Last voted with the ALP to appoint a rehabilitation commissioner

In typical communist style farmers wishing to plough their paddocks will be subject to the whim of a commissioner. who does not need to have any formal qualifications under the new legislation.

Leader of Katters Australian Party Robbie Katter who opposed the laws, said the LNP, but in particular the Member for Burdekin, Dale Last, a former senior police officer, had again betrayed farmers.

“Mr Last has been very vocal in his attacks on Labor in the past but this week proved his loyalties lie only with his party and not the people,” Mr Katter said.

“He should have shown the convictions of Colin Boyce, LNP Member for Callide, who crossed the floor and voted against his own party’s support for a new mining rehabilitation commissioner.

“Farming used to be an essential service by providing clean and green food and fibre for Australians, but the LNP has thrown the baby out with the bathwater and the population could starve for all they  care.

“The consequences of this could be dire and could hold up development for years.”

KAP Member for Hinchinbrook Nick Dametto said Mr Boyce’s courageous move in the House this week was significant.

“I believe Mr Boyce’s move has signalled that LNP policy no longer truly represents the values of the bush and this is why he crossed the floor,” he said.

“By voting for that legislation, the LNP and Labor have endorsed the appointing of a commissioner who will dictate not only how mining businesses operate but will also enforce last year’s amendments to the Environmental Protection Act that introduced draconian regulations on farmers in the six reef catchment areas.

“There wasn’t even a skillset specified for this person, who might very well come from a green lobby group. The LNP and Labor seem content with creating a legislative hitman answerable only to the Environment Minister and no-one else.

“They will have immense power to work against mining and agriculture in Queensland.

“The LNP continually says they back farmers and here they are voting with Labor. This was a perfect
opportunity to do the right thing and vote against Labor’s legislation that will only hurt farmers,”
he said.

“It took the crossbench to call for a division in parliament to trigger one of the LNP’s own members
to cross the floor in a strong show of support for the agricultural sector.

“Backing Queensland agriculture isn’t about creating a bunch of one-liners and wearing a green
shirt at a rally. You actually need to back words with actions.

“The KAP talks the talk and walks the walk. We have drafted a bill to repeal Labor’s destructive reef
legislation and to date the LNP have refused to say whether they will support it.”

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.

  1. They are all in this together. Agenda 21 and the war on Australian people continues.
    We have a sham government and this trusting nature has revealed what it actually was, blindly naive. The thought of the dehumanization of the people of the world, I hope we see as a negative before it’s too late.
    My daughter is studying Hitler at the moment, I told her the many examples of the socialist state are playing out before us.

  4. This came across my desk many years ago, If you want to control the people there are two ways, FEAR, and STARVATION. fear works ok but starvation works better. If you control the production of food you can control how much is released, and who gets it.

  5. The government are the real enemy

  6. All these commies need to be removed out of office and we the people need to take back our country wake up people time is running out.

    The wrong genre of socialism is communism where the people have no rights whatsoever. But we have a totally different kind of socialism in the greatest political system that truly works for the people and benefits the people, National Socialism as espoused by The German Third Reich.

  8. “the Member for Burdekin, Dale Last, a former senior police officer, had again betrayed farmers.” A firmer copper… a current Freemason! Bet I’m absolutely correct.
