LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said today that she was gobsmacked at how long it was taking Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to clean up the mess that is the Labor Ipswich Council.
“It’s unbelievable how long it’s taking this Premier to clean up alleged Labor corruption in her own backyard,” Ms Frecklington said.
“The Premier has known about these corruption allegations at Labor’s Ipswich Council for years but has refused to act.
“Quite simply, this Labor protection racket needs to end.
“Labor’s Stirling Hinchliffe is clearly a lame duck who can’t make a decision. This bungling Minister oversaw the debacle of Labor’s rail fail and is in the throes of ruining Queensland’s racing industry.
“Labor rushed sweeping new powers through the Parliament as a matter of urgency but has failed to actually make a decision.
“Annastacia Palaszczuk was dragged kicking and screaming to issue a show cause notice in the first place and it’s unacceptable that 48 days later she still can’t make a decision.
“It’s not good enough. The people of Ipswich deserve better. They deserve certainty from the Palaszczuk Government.”
