For Like minded people who like to see-
In response to recent media reports:
The Queensland Party has not merged with Katter's Australian Party, for the simple reason that a State based political party - The Queensland Party - has the natural leverage to publicly scrutinise and assess measures put forward by federally based parties (Labor, Coalition, Katter) which impact Queenslanders.
The Queensland Party now has 700 members and is growing fast. Many Queenslanders recognise that Labor has worked with Campbell Newman and the LNP to pull the sheep's wool over the shearer's eyes.
The Queensland Party will be contesting the next election. No doubt there will be policy alignments with those established independent members.
I have personal experience with Campbell Newman - the veritable 'wolf in sheep's clothing' who is desperate to win in Ashgrove and will do and say anything to get elected.
I KNOW how he made the cost of living in Brisbane Central worse - not better. I KNOW how he peddled lies to the Brisbane people to punish pensioners, students and working people. I have seen for myself how divisive and destructive he is. His 'coronation' to the leadership of the LNP has destroyed the kernel of true conservatism and democratic values.
Mr. Newman is the symptom of the Labor "NSW Disease" which has crossed the border and changed hosts.
Yes, The Queensland Party is still going strong, despite attempts to destroy us.
The Queensland Party is truly part of that strong but silent majority who are fed up to the back teeth with partisan politics, the drubbing of farmers and producers by the Labor-Greens-LNP unholy alliance and their echo chamber: the consensus media who is like a shiny pony to a child: the job of the "lame stream media" is to distract and entertain us, rather than to act as a protection against corruption and abuse.
Look to The Queensland Party for true leadership, true democratic principles and guts.
If you look at the LNP page they still hold to climate change for some reason among their policies as I quote below. When will they see that this garbage is a waste of time?
Queensland has a unique and diverse environment that encapsulates a wealth of natural resources and a rich cultural heritage -
Our policies will:
Campbell Newman does not have the courage to call climate alarmism for what it is. We live in a land of drought and flooding rain. In Queensland we can add a flogging from cyclones every so often.
Climate happens. Weather happens. At best we should have some attention to a climate hazard and event strategy to just handle what comes along, rather than try to stop the natural changes that are occuring.
A recent senate enquiry in Canada has finally shed some light on the United Nations, the IPCC and the ways in which the real voices of scientists have been drowned out in the process.
First, the economics of climate change do not favour Kyoto-type commitments. Under current and foreseeable technologies, the greenhouse gas policies that we can afford to undertake would have such small climatic impacts as to be pointless. The same kinds of models that are used to forecast global warming predict that, if all the signatories to the Kyoto Protocol complied with their commitments, the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that we would have observed by 2100 would instead have been reached by about 2105, a trivial difference. Kyoto was too costly for countries to reach. When a policy is proposed that is too costly to implement and yields benefits that are too small to measure, you would expect reasonable people to see it as a bad idea. Instead, we observed a dogmatic elite consensus in support of Kyoto. In my mind, this never validated Kyoto; it merely discredited the elite consensus and suggested to me that the international political milieu in charge of the climate issue was unduly susceptible to groupthink.
