LNP’s ‘bribery’ and sexist advertising

The Sunshine Coast Daily (26.1.15) reports that ‘Speaking at a Great Barrier Reef protest in Mooloolaba yesterday, the Senator for Queensland, Larissa Waters, slammed Premier Campbell Newman for saying big spending promises could not be guaranteed in electorates that do not vote LNP on Saturday. “He’s effectively bribing people and saying if you vote for us you get this thing but if not you get nothing,” she said. “He’s shown his true colours and he’s clearly desperate because he knows his government has become desperately unpopular.”

Mr Newman said on Saturday that even projects with bipartisan support could not be guaranteed in seats that did not have an LNP member.’
