Queensland Country Life newspaper in bed making babies with LNP

Fairfax Media’s hitman forQueensland, Cameron Thompson, editor of the Queensland Country Life newspaper has launched a broadside at Bob Katter, telling him to keep out of Liberal National Party territory.

Since Cameron took the helm, QCL circulation has dipped like Juliar Gillard’s popularity poll.

Cameron Thompson, a longtime critic of any political party other than the Liberals, got his orders a month ago from the LNP HQ to formally discredit Katters Australian Party, a talent he has been honing since the formation of KAP.

He used the front page (March 15) on this occasion to blame Katter for allowing Coal Seam Gas miners onto private property. He wrote that Katter as Mines Minister in 1989 introduced the legislation allowing miners on to farm property. What poor Cameron doesn’t know is that most title deeds have reserved all mineral and petroleum deposits to the Crown. Katter had nothing to do with this 100 year old entitlement.

Cameron should have looked at how many amendments have been made to the Mineral Resources Act since 1989.

Thompson is well known in LNP social circles for gripping the goat, and has shared many a festive board celebration with the pillars of the big end of town inGeorge St,Brisbane.

He was taught to be cautious, but his latest tirade against Bob Katter has drooped to lower proportions than an octogenarian’s appendage.

Maybe he has an underdeveloped complex about this and is in need of a viagra quick fix?

Or maybe Cameron is fantasizing that he is punishing the KAP for spilling the beans on former Brisbane Mayor and hero Campbell Newman who has an affinity for telling one group one thing then telling another bunch of hopefuls another like his support for same sex marriage.

Really, when it is all said and done,Campbelldid say he supported gay marriage, and most grippers or the QCL readership would not warm to that statement.

So is Cameron trying to retrieve the irretrievable?

He forgets Katter has 40 years experience inQueenslandpolitics and has never been defeated at an election, in spite of various electoral frauds being committed.

The KAP policies have been formulated in an effort to undo the damage caused to ruralAustraliaby the Liberals’ freetrading policies which have decimated all agricultural industries, particularly dairy farmers.

Being a reporter on a rural newspaper one would think Cameron has some nous about these industries, but he just parrots the lines given to him by the LNP.

It is a sad day because people want change and not a continuation of ALP policies that the LNP will give us.

Cameron should have looked at how many amendments have been made to the Mineral Resources Act since 1989.

The LNP has refused to repeal the ALP’s hated Vegetation Management Act, because Opposition Leader Jeff Seeney (Peter Beattie’s unofficial cousin) said too many land owners had been fined under the act. It is here to stay, he said.

Years ago an astute bushman once said, “The C_ _ _ of a Life paper is just the unofficial organ of the National Party.

“If you want to find out what’s going on in the bush listen to the ABC.”

It will create 60 000 new full time jobs over the next six years and see infrastructure investment of between $20 and $25 billion.

At last we have an option for REAL change.

Dodgy Queensland Electoral Commissioner removes Katter name

The Queensland Electoral Commission, long tainted with corruption allegations has again shown its true colours by dropping the Katter name from Katters Australian Party on two million ballot papers..

An application has been made to the Supreme Court to have the Katter name reinstated.

Last year, amid some controversy the Australian Party applied to have the name registered as a political party. The Electoral Commission refused saying the Australian Party name was too similar to other registered parties.

As a result Katters Australian Party was registered by the Commission.

Heiner Inquiry Labor cover-up revisited by Alan Jones

Alan Jones interviews journalist Piers Akerman over the February 2012 release of documents delivered to all Australian senators, who now cannot say they were unaware, revealing the Queensland Labor Government cover-up of the 1992 retired magistrate Oscar Hiener inquiry into a juvinile Aboriginal girl being gang raped while in custody at a Brisbane Youth Detention Centre.

The labor government within weeks of the inquiry receiving power to perform, shut it down.

This involved not only the government, but police and right up to the Governor General, Quentin Bryce (a lawyer), now Australian Governor General.

Who are the real Environmental vandals?

Queensland Labor Minister Kate JonesThe Hon. Ms. Kate Jones has now abandoned her portfolio as Queensland Minister for the Environment and resource Management, but before leaving she has attempted to win votes and influence people by offering incentives to the Tourism Industry this includes allowing tour operators to move from three-year permits to 15-year agreements, but operators are worried that the costs of new best practice might hit their bottom line. The ex Minister has also established an enforcement unit to crack down on environmental
vandals and investigate breaches of the law.

At a cost of more than $27 million dollars these enforcers will audit businesses and sites across Queensland, but perhaps the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) would be better off auditing their own management practices before embarking on a crusade to save the State.

The government has an abysmal record of managing National Parks none more evident than the degradation of Fraser Island..

An internal report by the University of the Sunshine Coast (2009) on the water quality of Fraser Island found contamination in the ground water to be of serious concern and management action required.

The perched lake system is also under threat by overcrowding and inadequate infrastructure.

Marine debris washes up along the shoreline and mixed with human waste is left to rot.

The iconic Fraser Island dingo is constantly harassed, trapped and treated inhumanely and unethically by DERM rangers.

This is just one example of environmental neglect by the current Queensland government.

So who is auditing the auditors? Who are the real environmental vandals? Perhaps those millions could be better spent cleaning up the governments own environmental mess?
