Palaszczuk’s ‘epic fail’ end of year report card

Palaszczuk Government scores straight Fs in 2016 end-of-year report card
• After calling 130+ reviews in less than two years, Labor flunks the one review they weren’t prepared to offer Queenslanders
• Annastacia Palaszczuk scores epic fail, followed by dishonourable mentions Shannon Fentiman, Stirling Hinchliffe and Curtis “Captain Risky” Pitt

Annastacia Palaszczuk and her incompetent Labor Government have flunked the one review they weren’t prepared to offer the people of Queensland – scoring straight Fs in the 2016 end-of-year report card.

With Christmas upon us, Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls said it was a time to reflect on the Palaszczuk Government’s achievements this year – an alarmingly short exercise that instead uncovers a litany of disasters.

“In less than two years Annastacia Palaszczuk has ordered more than 130 reviews but if she would just take a moment to review her Government’s performance the verdict wouldn’t be pretty,” Mr Nicholls said.

“If Annastacia Palaszczuk was getting these results at school she would be forced into a catch-up program over summer and threatened with expulsion – and as Premier she could face the same fate at the next election.

“She broke her promise not to sell assets, she broke her promise not to increase taxes and she promised not to abuse the processes of Parliament – but gave just 18 months’ notice before changing the State’s entire voting system to shore up Labor’s preference deals with the Greens.”

Mr Nicholls said a number of dishonourable mentions were owed to Labor’s most disaster-prone Ministers including Child Safety Minister Shannon Fentiman, Transport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe and Curtis “Captain Risky” Pitt who had lost control of their portfolios.

“Where else in Australia could you have a Transport Minister who can’t run the trains, a Treasurer who can’t manage the books and a Child Safety Minister in denial about a serious crisis in her Department?” he said.

“Every time we have another crisis, Annastacia Palaszczuk refuses to take responsibility and sack these incompetent Ministers.

“It’s no surprise her Ministers scored straight Fs across the board and 2017 isn’t looking any brighter.”
