|WORKING HARD FOR THE PEOPLE|
OF FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND
He's been on the Cueball show, bellowing CRISIS! at every opportunity. And as we previously reported, insiders have confirmed that several of his LNP colleagues have asked him to shut his pie hole while the adults work to resolve the issues with the insurance companies.
When the LNP gained government in Queensland last year, 'ol Entschy said she'll be right now. Among his proposals was a moratorium on the Queensland state government insurance stamp duty. And 'ol Entschy worked his arse off, telling his LNP colleagues our tales of woe on the cost of insurance.
So what did his LNP mates do for Warren Entsch?
In the LNP budget announcement yesterday, Treasurer Tim Nichols not only didn't put a morotorium on the insurance stamp duty, but he INCREASED IT TO 9%!
Warren Entsch is clearly the most ineffectual and worthless MP to ever represent Leichhardt. He can't even get his own party to come to the table!
Local LNP pollies are bunkered down after hearing this budget announcement, which also includes a backflip on promised caps on regional electricity pricing and other cost increases for families and pensioners. The LNP has however tipped a $52,900 WAGE INCREASE FOR OUR PARLIAMENTARIANS!
But the rest of us can look for a 21% increase in electricity on July 1 as well.
While this story is front page news in Brisbane, and across most of the state, in Cairns we get a guy in a racing wheelchair.
So much for the LNP "Contract with North Queensland".
