Aussie, US nurses blow whistle on COVID corruption of health system

Australian nurses at work in an intensive care unit.

By TONY MOBILIFONITIS

FROM Queensland to California to the UK and Europe, dedicated health professionals are speaking out against the big pharma-driven genocide agenda taking place in hospitals, made worse recently by the immoral, unlawful imposition of fascist vaccine mandates.

In Australia 30-year career nurses like Debbie Jane Harris have quit under pressure from the vaccine mandate and have spoken out against the horrors of vaccine-induced injuries and deaths being suffered by thousands of Australians but ignored and covered up by imbecile ministers, clueless chief health officers and bent bureaucrats who inhabit bodies like the TGA, AHPRA, ATAGI and the AMA.

The exact same horrors and lies exposed by nurse Harris have also been exposed by whistleblowing health professionals at Ventura County Hospital in California and published in the Conejo Guardian by journalist Joel Kirkpatrick.

As in Australia and everywhere else suffering under the WHO-Gates-Rockefeller-Fauci medical mafioso, Kirkpatrick describes the totally corrupting effects of COVID-related protocols, vaccine mandates and politically and financially motivated bullying of medical staff.

“Before COVID, nurses, staff and the community were confident in treatment modalities and in doctors’ competencies,” said one nurse. But now, “People are confused.” They are also shocked that doctors and administrators refuse to report rising numbers of unexplained medical problems in otherwise healthy people as potential adverse reactions to COVID-19 experimental vaccine shots.

Nurses said that to suggest the shots were the cause of any medical problem or contributing to the alarming rise in non-COVID-related hospital populations, invited professional ridicule with certain staff refusing to believe they were anything but “the safest thing ever produced”.

Yet these same doctors and medical staff who have chosen to run with the narrative have no explanation for the increase in non-COVID-related ailments, including a reported increase in heart attacks in young people, mainly men, who received the COVID-19 vaccines. Doctors in Australia and California “chalk it up to genes”, the whistleblower nurses said.

These were the same nurses who watched in amazement in early 2020 as media and governments everywhere screamed that the hospital COVID wards were about to be overrun, while reality was telling another story. Twenty months on, nurse Harris in Queensland discovered there had only been six Covid patients in ICU at her hospital all that time. Was this the real reason for those ridiculous “dancing nurses” videos that surfaced everywhere? They were supposedly a noble effort by the frontline workers to lift morale but more likely part of the organised psychological operation.

Across the Pacific at Ventura County, nurse Daniel sent his wife and kids to live elsewhere for a month and a half while he prepared to handle “the rush of dead and dying” but “nobody came.” The hospital cancelled elective surgeries and only six COVID patients turned up in the ICU there as well.

And then the “unmentionable” began to happen – the number of non-COVID patients boomed. There were pneumonia cases, strokes – more than normal – and women with venous sinus embolisms. The US nurses reported seeing many auto-immune issues: rashes on the body, the body attacking the nervous system, producing symptoms like a weakening of the muscles.

One patient presented with severe respiratory distress and went into respiratory failure, with symptoms first showing three weeks after he took the Pfizer shot. His lungs were completely destroyed, totally wrecked, Daniel said.

One healthy nurse in her twenties who Daniel knew went into cardiac arrest three weeks after her Pfizer shot. An aortic dissection ruptured her aorta like a balloon. She underwent open-heart surgery and made a full recovery but would not believe the COVID vaccine shots had caused it.

Nurse Davis, speaking at a public meeting at the Gold Coast in November 2021, broke down when she began to relay the post-vaccination adverse events, which at both locations remain mostly unreported. They include the clotting, bleeding, brain bleeds and heart attacks, stillborn and deformed births.

COVID-related data amounted to what one US nurse called “voodoo statistics.” In her unit and others, they are no longer testing everybody for COVID. Rather, they test only those who are symptomatic and those who say they are unvaccinated. The daily figures spouted by CHOs and media are totally misleading because they deliberately cover up the fact that 80 percent of the people in the ER are vaccinated, while only 40 percent of Ventura County is vaccinated.

The US nurses found in a recent group of COVID patients at one hospital, the sickest ones were double-vaccinated. Nurse Daniel said the first to die had both Pfizer shots.

Equally appalling is the enforced treatment of COVID patients with a highly dangerous “approved” drug called Remdesivir. Dr Bryan Ardis has gone on Rumble to expose the scandalous use of the drug that Dr Anthony Fauci has brazenly lied about. It blocks the kidneys and can kill patients by causing a type of internal drowning of organs.

Meanwhile the response of medical authorities in both countries has simply been to cover it all up and reward administrators with virtual bribes for reporting skewed and incorrect statistics. Most notorious among Australian whistleblowers is the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the Australian Medical Association.

A retired doctor from Logan Hospital near Brisbane said AHPRA were interfering with and dictating to doctors in overt acts of overreach. Truth and freedom were the casualties, he said. Nurses were also threatened with having their social media pages monitored. The US nurses relayed similar stories of medical bullying, especially against the unvaccinated nurses.

So warped had procedures become in the Ventura county hospital that people were literally left to die on the COVID floor, as happened to one young patient with an autoimmune bowel issue. Her condition worsened, and “nothing was really done” until she went into cardiac arrest and died.

Now, with lawless and brutal vaccine mandates imposed and the loss of many veteran staff like nurse Harris, health care at Australian and Californian hospitals is in crisis. And the fools at AHPRA and the AMA twiddle their thumbs, spin-doctoring their latest phony statistics to media and politicians between their pharma-sponsored cocktail gatherings.

The thousands of staff who left these hospitals because they are appalled by the results of Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca’s fraudulent, failed jabs, no longer exist. A recent interview on Australia’s ABC news covered the staffing crisis but in an Orwellian twist, simply ignored the fact of the vaccination mandate and those who had been kicked out of the system.

But the tide of deceit may be turning. Nurse Daniel knows “a lot of [health care workers] who will not get a booster shot”. “They felt like they took a huge risk. I know a lot of people who felt terrible for months after the shot, and they don’t want to experience that again,” he told the Conejo Guardian.
The newspaper reported that more than half of the nurses they spoke with were “heading for the exits” and looking to retire or move to another state to continue their careers. Nurse Daniel said he had “lost all faith in the medical field” and suspected money was pushing the drugs more than evidence. Independent thinkers like him were the enemy now.

“The state sees you as an opposition force, for your opinion,” he told the newspaper. “All these mandates and enforcements are not based off of science; they’re based off of peer pressure. Fear, politi­cal, emotional manipulation.”

Like their Aussie counterparts, the Californian nurses are looking to create private member association hospitals, where unvaccinated people can go to work in their own separate, parallel system. Already the Aussie nurses are organising their own state and federal groups under the Red Union banner.

Gold Coast Covid ward empty for months while vax casualties stream in

More than 1200 people attended the meeting to organise forces against the vaccine mandate.

By TONY MOBILIFONITIS

A QUEENSLAND nursing whistleblower broke down in front of a meeting on the Gold Coast on Thursday night, telling of the horrors of vaccine adverse events including stillbirths, deformed babies, blood clots and cancer remissions reversed.

The 30-year nursing veteran Debbie Jane Harris, who has resigned from her profession, said there had been thousands of adverse events while Gold Coast University Hospital had seen only six Covid-positive cases in the ICU in 20 months. “All of those patients survived and were discharged and some were double vaccinated,” she said.

Harris went on to describe how a special Covid ward at the hospital been locked up and left empty for “months and months and months”. At the same time health officials, politicians and media in Queensland were claiming hospitals were being overloaded with Covid cases.

Harris said she declined to get a vaccination because she could not give informed consent due to a lack of data. Dr Camm, a recently retired doctor from Logan, also said there was insufficient data on the vaccines.

Dr Camm also spoke on the censorship of doctors by the Australian Health Practititioners Regulatory Agency (AHPRA), which has threatened disciplinary action, including deregistration, against doctors who speak out against the vaccine rollout policy. At the same time governments say people with questions about vaccines should see their GPs.

Harris said nurses had received the same directive and were also told their social media would be monitored. They had also been encouraged to dob in any colleagues involved in spreading anti-vaccine information.

The Gold Coast church venue in Carrara was packed to the rafters on Thursday night as business people and others gathered to fight back against the Morrison-enabled Palasczcuk vaccine mandate by rallying businesses that are determined to follow a non-discriminatory path.

The organisers, Undivided Gold Coast, also made available an employment network for unvaccinated people who had lost jobs. A special app will also allow people to locate non-discriminatory businesses.

The meeting also heard from an organisation called the Red Unions, which is a group of legally established alternative unions for teachers, doctors, police, and independent workers union. A small business union is also being considered.

Senator Malcolm Roberts told the meeting he was aware of four Queensland councils who were rejecting the vaccine mandate. He said he had put a series of questions on Covid response issues in a letter to Palasczcuk. She sent a two-page letter back but failed to answer any of the questions.

He also accused TGA head Skerritt of covering up post-vaccination death statistics. He said when he asked Skerritt about the 564 reported post vaccination deaths, he “exploded” and claimed the actual number was nine. Roberts said Skerritt, in a letter, tried to bully him into not speaking about Covid treatments by threatening to use some obscure power.

Roberts wrote back telling Skerritt to stop illegally threatening his right as an Australian Senator to political communication. He also told Skerritt “the government has blood on its hands for refusing ivermectin (treatment).”

Palaszczuk’s turn to be a nasty fascist because you’re not compliant

The mind games they play are obvious to the thinker.

By TONY MOBILIFONITIS

QUEENSLANDERS wake up! Your premier Palaszczuk and her senior bureaucrats are playing psychological games with you designed by elite government-corporate committees in the UK, France and the US.

Cairns News has previously reported on this, thanks to the the work of Brian Gerrish and UK Column who detailed the diabolical, highly manipulative work of various UK and French working groups set up for the objective of mass deception of the population. Palaszczuk and company are their sock puppets Down Under and you, the Queenslanders, are their target.

Firstly consider this, if 80% of the population is vaccinated and “protected” why are they punishing the 20% who aren’t? Epidemiologists suggest at least half the population are naturally immune to Covid-19 and those 20% are probably most of them. And of those infected by this virus, whatever it may be, less than 1% die and they usually involved comorbidities in the upper age groups.

No it’s not about the vaccine as much as forcing mass compliance and trampling those traditional rights and freedoms that the elites want to crush in order to implement their delusional “Great Reset” global society and its twin, Agenda 20-30. We suspect that the partly/fully vaccinated numbers are highly exaggerated and the pressure is on Queensland to “show a bit of brute force”.

Former Pfizer chief scientist Michael Yeadon, who has been warning us for at least 18 months not to take the vaccines because of their severely flawed safety data and dangerous nature, and has also put out warnings on the program of psychological and economic warfare against the global population.

November to March is said to be Phase 5, where the objective is to foment chaos and establish martial law by exploiting a shortage of goods and food, closing factories and shops and letting unemployment explode, pushing booster shots, imposing compulsory vaccination and amplifying the myth of variants, the efficacy of the vaccine and the immunity of the herd.

Phase 5 also supposedly will demonize the anti-vaxxers and hold them responsible for deaths, opposition leaders will be arrested and a digital identity imposed on everyone (QR code), martial law imposed to defeat the opposition and imprisonment or removal of opponents.

We don’t see all of this happening yet, but the possibilities are there with Palaszczuk’s prison farm at Toowoomba under construction, Scott Morrison’s digital ID campaign being pushed by his fellow Judas Christian Stuart Robert, the arrest of protest leaders in Victoria and NSW, warnings about “delta returning” after borders reopen.

There have also been unconfirmed reports of the Army mass-booking Gold Coast hotels over December and into early 2022, suggesting another round of house to house “vaccine marketing” as occurred in Western Sydney under Berejiklian.

Meanwhile the resistance is growing. Slowly but surely, more Aussies – even those who have been vaccinated – are waking up to this tyranny. Only the apathetic, lazy, TV-brainwashed crowd continue to buy into the idea that Morrison, the Premiers and the Chief Health Officers are protecting from a big bad virus.

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.”

Queensland’s border vaccine demand fuels truckies already in angry blockade mode

By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
A THREAT by Queensland Premier Palasczcuk to force truckies and other essential workers to get vaccinated before coming into the state will blow up in her corrupt regime’s faces. Truckies have already had enough of the bullying from state governments everywhere and will begin a Queensland border blockade that is being extended to ports and other states.

Truckie “Bluey Festa” is furious over state government attempts to force vaccination on truckies and school students.

South Australia is already being subject to a delivery ban and another blockade on Victoria is threatened.

Angry truckies have been posting across social media and their blockade plans have won support from as far away as the US, where the transport industry is also suffering under the lies of the jackboot COVID regimes.

Palaszczuk announced last Tuesday that from Friday, essential staff who live in NSW but work in Queensland “will be turned around unless they can show they’ve had had at least one dose of a vaccine. She lied that the vaccines were the “last line of defence” for Queensland.

Last year the same Queensland government criminalized the use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID treatment, while doctors in the US were calling out for more supplies after successfully treating patients.

Truckie responses to Palasczcuk’s extortion attempt was blunt and to the point: “This bitch thinking we’ve gotta get vaccinated to go in and out of Queensland has got to be kiddin’. Enough’s enough. All of us need to stop. Don’t go out and get the vaccine like a f…. moron – it’s untested, no-one knows the long-term results,” a truckie said on a TikTok video made on the road and posted on Bitchute.

“We drive trucks and sit for a long period of time, so there’s a huge chance we’re going to develop clots,” the driver said. “We don’t need to get this shit (vaccines). We’re tested every day. At the end of the day man, enough’s enough… see how good Queensland goes with no freight coming in and going out.”

Another angry truckie using a YouTube account under the name of Bluey Festa raised the possibility of port blockades. “We as truckies will block all your highways, we’ll block all your ports and we’ll even stop what we need to stop. There is nothing you will be able to do. You back off. These are our roads, this is our country and we will run it how we want to run it.

“This is our country. You and your vaccines is bullshit. You can f… off. You are not going to mandate nothing. And for the kids, what you’re doing is disgusting. What you’ve done in rounding them up in New South Wales is disgusting.

“We are going to be running this country. We are taking it back. Us truck drivers are going to be the front line and whoever’s behind us, we are going to take this country back. You politicians make me sick. You guys are filthy, you do not represent us people and you don’t represent this country.”


Restore democracy in Queensland petition

You must be a Queensland resident to sign this petition

This petition for Queensland need your attention

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that the Public Health and Other Legislation (Further Extension of Expiring Provisions) Amendment Bill, tabled 16 June 2021, will extend Queensland’s ‘State of Emergency’ powers and measures into a third year. There needs to be a public discussion on the great danger posed to Queensland’s democracy by all these rolling emergency powers, lockdowns and abrogation of citizens’ rights. Powers granted under emergency legislation are supposed to be exceptional and time-limited. After 18 months, there is no justifiable reason why the Government can’t legislate for more reduced powers that allow Government to deal with the situation at hand while restoring many of the State’s normal democratic processes. 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to: 

1. Oppose the bill and request the Government prepare a new one that better reflects the paramountcy of Parliament and citizens’ rights;

2. Make public, without redaction, all data, modelling and forecasts used by the Government in the decision-making process;

3. End the overuse of delegated legislation, which override the usual checks and balances needed for a functioning democracy;

4. End QR ‘sign in’ mandates for shops and businesses and allow people who are not at high risk from the virus, due to age or co-morbidities, to resume normal living;

5. Normalise democratic processes and  freedoms in Queensland.

Join Len Harris’ campaign to reverse the theft and destruction of Queensland paper property titles

Len Harris (in the van and below) has pledged to visit every town and city in Queensland to rally support for his campaign to fix the state’s property Title Deed scandal. He will be doing some live streaming on Facebook.

By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
FORMER One Nation Senator Len Harris is on the road across Queensland for 20 weeks to expose the massive scandal of Queenslanders’ paper property Title Deeds being made void and placed under private corporate control.

In October 2019, under the Land, Explosives and Other Legislation Amendment Act, all Queensland property Title Deeds were changed into electronic form and placed under the control of three private companies – Purcell Partners Pty Ltd (PEXA), Sympli Australia Pty Ltd and Property Exchange Australia (PEXA).

One of the companies, Property Exchange Australia (PEXA), is in the throes of capitalizing on the control of those Title Deeds by either becoming a public company and issuing $1.8 billion worth of shares or in selling outright for $3.8 billion.

Harris says the concern with these corporate entities is that they can be bought and sold at the whim of the owners, or by hostile takeover if listed on the stock exchange. He wonders if the system will become one where property owners pay an annual fee to the companies for a permit to occupy the home. A forerunner of that is Microsoft switching from selling programs to paying an annual access fee.

“The question is, in the long term future, say 10, 20, or 50 years down the track, who will control the computer your land and home ownership is registered in?” Harris says.

For now, Queenslanders’ paper property titles have been seized, digitized and turned into assets for the benefit of few private corporations, their future shareholders or some other corporate entity we know nothing about. It’s akin to some entity taking money out of your bank, parking it and reaping interest without benefit to you, the owner.

Harris is also seeking public support for a judicial review of the covering legislation by a chief judge of the Supreme Court of Queensland, and an application to the Federal Court for directives to reverse and remedy the outrageous and high-handed action.

“The only solution and the best solution for this is to take the Queensland Government to the Federal Court of Australia and have this Act struck down,” Harris says in a video on thesilentmajority.org.au website created for the campaign.

Harris agreed with Cairns News that Queenslanders should take special note of a bizarre World Economic Forum advertisement circulated in 2020: “It’s 2030. You will own nothing. But you will be happy”. It raises the question of whether losing possession and direct control of property title deeds is a step on the way to losing ownership of the property altogether in a global digital maze.

The electronic titles system has also been implemented in Victoria and NSW but with one important exception – the paper titles have not been voided in those states as they have been in Queensland. “The Queensland Government severely reduced our right to have documents that prove ownership of our homes to nothing other than historic artefacts to look at,” Len Harris states in a circular to Queensland business owners.

Some may argue that “it’s just the new electronic titles that have come in. No-one has actually stolen our titles.” But when paper titles have been made void i.e. of no legal standing, you then become entirely reliant for the proof of your ownership on the grace of the private corporation to show it when you ask. In other words, your personal ability to show ownership of your property has been taken out of your hands.

Even now, the document provided upon request from Titles Queensland (formerly the Registrar of Titles Office) acknowledging your name as existing on an electronic title with one of the holding companies, has no legal weight.

Property Exchange Australia is wholly owned by The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) Lightyear Investments B.V., a subsidiary of North Haven Infrastructure Partners II, a fund managed by Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners (MSIP). They are collectively deciding to either float PEXA on the stock exchange or sell it outright. PEXA currently holds 70% of all electronically lodged conveyancing records in Australia.

Residents call for senate inquiry and audit into Peninsula Development Road construction

A group of Coen residents has called for an independent audit into the distribution of $260 million of federal and state funding allocated for a major upgrade of the Peninsula Development Road.

Senator Roberts(left) talking to local graziers Paddy Shephard; John and Sally Witherspoon after the meeting, intends to take residents’ concerns over mismanagement of the PDR construction to parliament

One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts was invited to the Coen meeting on Wednesday night to hear the concerns of locals who believe there had been a wide-spread waste of government funds by Roadtek.

Long-time local grazier Paddy Shephard explained to the meeting how an Indigenous Land Use Agreement(ILUA) was about to signed off by the State Government giving part control of the PDR to a “Coen Aboriginal family group” which had no connection  to the highway.

Another resolution was passed at the meeting asking Senator Roberts to instigate a senate inquiry into the granting of an ILUA over the PDR, an important arterial tourist and defence road.

Senator Roberts is no stranger to the Cape having taken a number of holiday trips to the Top.

He said he was at the meeting to listen to the concerns of local people and would do what he could to have the matters investigated.

“It seems the place is being held back and the road is important  for defence and the opening up of the region,” Senator Roberts said.

“There is no accountability and now it seems lots of waste in general and an abuse of power where ordinary people are missing out every day.

“We are losing our sovereignty in government under regulations coming from the United Nations.”

Senator Roberts discusses with Nichol Keppel the takeover of the PDR by the Cape York Land Council

Businessman Barry Mulley launched an emotional attack on the Cape York Land Council for demanding the PDR be handed over to their elitist members allegedly in order to take a cut of funding for contractors engaged in the upgrade.

“Once they have control of the road they can do what they like with it even charge a toll for tourists to use it and decide which contractors will get jobs,” Mr Mulley said.

“We believe local indigenous people should get jobs on the road but the land council should not be in control of it. There are too many jobs for the boys on big pay that has pushed up the cost of building it.

“There is no accountability from the government or land council in how they spend large amounts taxpayers money.

“I am sick of paying large amounts of tax only to have it wasted by the government on mismanagement of the road works.”

Mr Mulley said Peninsula ratepayers and residents had no political representation which is why Senator Roberts was invited to take their concerns to Parliament.

“Nobody cares about the Peninsula. The government just throws lots of money into it without any accountability,” he added.

The notorious ‘Land Claim Number 1’ according to Cape York Alliance member Jack Wilkie-Jans gave the CYLC the ability to claim ownership of the PDR.

“How do just nine claimants speak for the hundreds of clan groups across the Cape?” he asked.

“Is it any wonder there is such widespread derision among the indigenous and white people of the Cape.”

No fresh milk by 2028? New bill for fair price to farmers

shane-knuth-milk

A new logo would be put on milk bottles to help consumers identify if it is sourced from a farmer who was paid a fair price, under proposed laws by Katter’s Australian Party.

Shane Knuth said the bill, which will need the support of one of the major parties and crossbenchers, establishes the eligibility criteria and legal protection for the voluntary system.

“Queensland dairy farmers are in a crippling financial crisis,” he said.

“The deterioration climate of the dairy industry is making it crucial to pass legislation that will help keep dairy farmers afloat.

“The fair milk price logo informs consumers where the milk is produced, that farmers were paid a sustainable price for the cost of a litre of milk, and that it’s Queensland’s fresh milk.”

‘No fresh milk by 2028’

Mr Knuth said an average of 50 farmers left the industry each year, going from 1500 to just 430 in 15 years.

If the trend continued there would be no fresh milk produced in the state by 2028, he said.

“Deregulation, natural disasters, and the dollar-a-litre supermarket price wars and unsustainable farm gate prices have slashed the number of Queensland dairy farmers.”

The bill now goes to the Agriculture and Environment Committee for consideration before it is debated by the Parliament.

It is unclear if the KAP bill would be passed, with the government and opposition coy on their intentions.

A government spokesman said Minister Leanne Donaldson would assess the merits of the bill after it was considered by a parliamentary committee.

Opposition’s agriculture spokesman Dale Last said the LNP had a strong record of supporting Queensland farmers.

“We’ll be keen to take a closer look at this legislation as it’s considered by the Parliamentary Committee,” he said.

First Bligh now Palaszczuk selling off your assets

Tim Nicholls Opposition Leader

Tim Nicholls Opposition Leader

The Opposition has compared the Palaszczuk Government to former premier Anna Bligh’s “failed” administration during a heated debate over asset sales.

Question time was dominated by asset sales, after Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk last week announced the State Government would sell off publicly owned land to encourage urban renewal in cities across Queensland.

But Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls claimed the policy was a broken promise from Labor and he tried to draw the link between Ms Palaszczuk and Ms Bligh – who led the state between 2007 and 2012.

“Before 2009 election campaign Anna Bligh and Andrew Fraser deceived Queenslanders and promised not to sell state assets and then did so,” he said.
“Before the 2015 campaign, the Premier and Treasurer promised not to sell assets and are now planning on doing so.” “How is the Premier’s Government any different from the failed Bligh-Fraser Government?” Ms Bligh ruled out considering privatisations before the 2009 election and after Labor was re-elected the Government moved to sell Queensland Rail’s freight business – now called Aurizon after listing on the stock exchange – along with the state’s forestry assets, putting Queensland Motorways out on a long-term lease and offloading the Brisbane and Abbot Point ports.

Queenslanders registered their displeasure about selling state assets at the ballot box, with the Bligh Government decimated at the 2012 election – reduced to just seven MPs out of the 89-seat parliament.

But Ms Palaszczuk rejected the claim and pointed out that the former LNP Government took a $37 billion privatisation package to the last election.

“The person who is now the leader of the Opposition was the architect of the plan to sell off $37 billion worth of assets,” she said.

“We have heard rumours that they are talking about either a 50-year lease on our energy companies or our ports, or perhaps selling a 50 per cent stake in them.” Ms Palaszczuk defended the land sales policy because it would create jobs for Queenslanders by partnering with the private sector and local councils to deliver urban renewal projects.

But Mr Nicholls said Ms Palaszczuk had changed the rules about what constitutes a privatisation in a move to justify the land sales policy.

“The Premier has repeatedly tried to claim her Government would not sell assets, even attempting to change the definition to income-producing assets after the election,” he said.

A Government spokesman said Labor’s pre-election policy was to not sell “income-producing assets”.
