KAP tells state Labor, LNP to pull their fingers out and do some real work

STATE Parliaments across Australia have not only become platforms for the new medical dictatorships, but their role to create, scrutinize and pass legislation has been undermined by the same crowd pushing their daily fake case numbers and vaccination figures.

In Victoria MPs have been shut out of parliament if they haven’t taken the shots and in Queensland, according to Katter’s Australian Party MPs, the major parties have been doing little to nothing for months on end.

KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter says rural and regional MPs are sick of travelling down to Brisbane for sitting weeks to do “basically nothing”. “We have more interesting and worthwhile discussions down at our local pubs,” he said.

Mr Katter said the minor party, which has three sitting MPs and 1.5 parliamentary staffers, has committed to introducing a minimum of five pieces of legislation into the House each year.

This year, the party has already introduced the Environmental and Other Legislation (Reversal of Great Barrier Reef Protection Measures) Amendment Bill 2021, the Working with Children (Indigenous Communities) Amendment Bill and the Food (Labelling of Seafood) Amendment Bill 2021. There are also another couple in the works.

“Politicians need to work for their supper,” Rob Katter said. “Sitting hours have been cut back, we have less and less speaking spots and time for genuine debate and there’s also hardly any legislation – let alone decent legislation – on the agenda.

“But now the KAP is committing to lift the game and counteract that – we want to deliver more for not only our own electorates in the north, but for the whole State.”

Despite having approximately 220 parliamentary/ministerial staff, Labor has introduced just 20 Bills into the Parliament this year. The LNP, which has about 10 per cent of the Government figure in terms of staff, has introduced zero.

Mr Katter said taxpayers were footing the bill for all these staffers, and there was no way they were getting ‘bang for buck’. “The KAP was vehemently opposed to the introduction of four-year parliamentary terms because we said if the Government can’t succeed in fulfilling their agenda in three years, then they don’t deserve another one,” he said.

“We have been vindicated now by the lack of activity of the last 12 months. We are all losing out because we now have to witness a non-performing government have free reign for four full years every term.”

Hinchinbrook MP Nick Dametto said the LNP’s recent legislative record had been dismal. “Queenslanders are looking for an alternative government and they are looking for an opportunity to decide who to back at the next State Election,” he said.

“The fact is, unless you’re showing people what you’re willing to put in from the Opposition or the cross bench, how can you prove what you would be like if given the power? This is a call-out to the LNP – we are calling on the Opposition to start lifting their weight.

“What we’re seeing now is a lazy Opposition and it’s letting this government get away with putting 20 Bills in a year when the average is 40-50.”

Hill MP Shane Knuth said KAP had a proven track-record of successfully pushing legislation through the Parliament that benefitted rural and regional communities.

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. I agree that LNP’s and Labor’s performance has been abysmal, if not downright evil, but I don’t think you can measure successful performance by the number of Bills introduced. What we actually need is LESS legislation and the return of our GOD given FREEDOM.
