Federal election 2016: What the parties have promised for your Queensland seat

Cameron Atfield reports in the Brisbane Times (1.7.16) on the promises that the major parties have made for each electorate in Queensland during the federal election campaign.

‘Federal elections are largely fought on a macro level – taxation, the economy, national security, health and education funding.

‘But, as the saying goes, all politics are local.

‘With that in mind, both major parties have been keen to win Queensland voters over as they attempt to gain a majority in the House of Representatives.

‘And for some voters, those local promises could be enough for them to endorse Malcolm Turnbull’s democratically untested prime ministership, or deliver the keys to The Lodge to Bill Shorten.
