Coalition going for zero… zero votes in coal seats, says Bob Katter

KENNEDY MP, Bob Katter, says the Liberal and National parties better find a way out of a commitment on net zero emissions by 2050 or they will take huge pain at the forthcoming federal election, with five coal mining seats up for grabs in North Queensland.

“With fly in, fly out mining so prevalent these days even areas such as Cairns, the Atherton Tablelands, Ingham, and the Burdekin are coal areas,” Mr Katter said. “Capricornia is super marginal, Leichhardt is super marginal, the sitting member is retiring in Flynn, and as for Dawson no-one knows what will happen there and even what George Christensen will do.

“If there’s a hung parliament, who knows what I will do. I could back Liberal, or I could back Labor. I’ll back whoever gives North Queenslanders the best deal. There is nowhere else in Australia where there are five seats up for grabs and it all comes down to how the major parties vote on net zero by 2050.

“My own union, the CFMEU, are the only ones who have been active in this field, fighting for coal and I hope we are going to take more initiatives soon. I cannot speak more highly of Michael Ravbar. Even though he is out of the Construction Division, he has been a great leader.”

Mr Katter said he personally believes adopting net zero by 2050 would be criminally insane as there are only three industries of significance in Queensland. “We produce nothing in Queensland except the three Cs: coal, cane and cattle,” he said.

“Now the 2050 plan means the shutdown of those three industries. And if you want to stretch it to aluminium and copper they will be gone too. Coal and iron ore are worth $100bn each to the Australian economy. Close those down and Australia will be bankrupt.

“The other problem with net-zero is, we will be telling China and India that they can’t have any of our coal. Who do we think we are? We are a little enclave of Europeans living in Asia on the world’s greatest treasure trove of resources, and we are going to tell the two biggest populations they can’t have our coal. Are you completely mad?

Mr Katter said net-zero would not only cost the coalition seats in North Queensland but also in western New South Wales where the Shooters Fishers Farmers Party has formed a stronghold at a state level.

“The Nationals have lost North Queensland and western New South Wales, and if they keep going, they’ll have nothing left,” he said. “There will be no National Party soon.”

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.

  1. Sheeple it seems David does explain a lot though ..ED2


  2. Christine: “it’s the unvaccinated that spread the virus.”

    You’ve had your gene therapy injections, you have nothing to fear. If you’re really worried, feel free to isolate yourself until your fears subside. And don’t go on the road, the road toll is around DOUBLE the published covid toll.


  3. C, please turn off the TV and social media for a fortnight, do your own research, free your mind from poorly acted, paid government propaganda mainstream media lies & social media bots.

    A teaser for starters, believe it or not >


  4. Hey I have never voted for them to stuff up our Australia, left that for the duopoly party faithful ,,ED2


  5. They will need more coal to make solar panels and wind generators
    Idiots where do they think alloys and other things come from?


  6. I would rather be fully vaccinated than catch covid 19 with the delta strain, A man who was not vaccinated caught covid 19 but none of his family contracted the virus because the rest of the family had been vaccinated and they did not catch the virus, if people are not going to get the vaccinated they are putting there kids in danger of catching the virus so.if you are refusing to be vaccinated you are putting the children and the elderly at risk of catching the virus so think about your family.
    The only people that are unable to be vaccinated are the people that have underlining health issues, my family have all been vaccinated with no problems,it’s the unvaccinated that spread the virus.


  7. Well, if we won’t sell it, then they may come & take it themselves for free ??
    What about Scotty it ?? Joe Dementia will prevent it ??


  8. “net zero by 2050” includes total population reduction down to half a billion. That’s the UN’s population reduction target. That’s the total madness coming out of the Tavistock Institute, Lord Mallach Brown, the arch eugenicist.
    Somehow we have to put those eugenicists’ heads on a pike. All of them!
    There are vast areas on Earth that can sustain huge increases of population but that drives the psychopaths into their own dramatisations. Look at what Ghaddafi did to the deserts of Libya which they took him out for. The big mistake Ghaddafi made was allowing a CIA rendition prison in Tripoli so they had to take him out to hide the evidence.
    But psychopaths can’t co-op with other psychopaths hence the faction wars, psychopaths habitually wrong target. Such is evidenced in Syria and Yemen.
    We used to lock psychopaths away, not so long ago, in prison’s for the criminally insane with deep pits inside the walls. But their direct victims, psychiatrists, made that “inhumane” to the point where psychiatric hospitals now are but small special wards in hospitals where they dose them up with lithium and release them back into the community.
    Bill Gates and co., are the victims, the puppets, of psychopaths. Just listen to their totally mad statements.
