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.

Liberal liars elected our first Greens Member in 2010

 This notice from the lying Liberal Party Queensland director Brad Henderson is prima facie evidence for the prosecution which KAP says will ensue.  The charges are substantial, from common law to breaches of the Electoral Act, criminal defamation and others the legal people are working on right now. Henderson has put his name to this scurrilous document which is all that is needed for a successful prosecution.
Henderson is just another grubby weevil from the big end of town and is a puppett of big oil and gas, big pharma, big farmers, big miners and most importantly a prostitute for big media!  KAP, according to its how to vote cards is preferencing the ALP in just four seats to maximise its Senate chances with a reciprocal deal. The Liberal Party in every other seat running KAP candidates across the nation will be the biggest beneficiary of KAP preferences!- from Robert J Lee in Brisbane

Dear Bill,

We’ve launched a new TV ad about the fact that Katter is backing Labor and the Greens. 

These are the people who have racked up nearly $300 billion in debt, wasted $11.5 billion on failed border protection policies – and tried to close down the live cattle trade.

You can watch the ad on our YouTube channel.

Unfortunately, it’s the same story with the other minor parties too – as another video explains. It’s clear that only the Liberal Nationals have a Plan to build a strong, prosperous economy and a safe, secure Australia.

So if you’re seeing any family or friends over the weekend who might be considering voting for Katter’s party – or any other minor party – please urge them not to gamble with their future. We can’t risk another three years like the last six.

Brad Henderson

LNP State Director
