Palaszczuk Government’s staggering $3 billion waste

The Palaszczuk Government’s extraordinary incompetence has been exposed with Estimates revealing an extra $3 billion of taxpayers’ money has been wasted.

This proves this third-term Labor government is losing control of spending in Queensland.

This money could have built two hospitals including Toowoomba’s Hospital Redevelopment bringing with it 27% more beds, and employing thousands of nurses in the middle of a health crisis.

It is clear the Palaszczuk Government consistently chooses politics and secrecy over people and transparency.

The list compiled from just the last two weeks is extraordinary:
