Media statement from LNP Deputy Leader Tim Mander

Thursday, 2 April 2020

“Day by day, confusion is spreading as Queenslanders receive mixed messages from Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.

“How many visitors Queenslanders are allowed to have in their home is the latest contradiction from the Premier to cause confusion.

“This followed the botched border closure, mixed messages of school closures, backflips on weapons armourers and flipflopping on recreational boating.

“The Premier has been unable to answer basic questions how the restrictions will operate.  

“Even the police, who have the critical job of enforcing the restrictions, have conceded there is too much confusion in the community.

“Restrictions should be based on the expert medical advice to save lives, not the Premier’s latest press conference.

“Queenslanders need considered and calm leadership to get through this health crisis but what they are hearing from Annastacia Palaszczuk is inconsistency and confusion.

“Most Queenslanders want to do the right thing and are, but it needs to be clearly communicated to them.”
