Lazy Labor's electricity con continues
Liberal National Party Shadow Energy Minister Michael Hart warned Queenslanders not to be fooled by Labor's great power price con.
"All Labor is offering is subsidies for a few, whilst all Queenslanders continue to pay record high electricity prices," Mr Hart said.
"Subsidies are just a sugar hit funded by increased taxes, in the end Queenslanders still pay. In regional Queensland they miss out altogether when it comes to the Alinta deal. A deal only possible because of reforms the LNP bought in that Labor delayed.
"Labor need to focus on cheaper electricity for all and end the money merry-go-round."
