Queenslanders deserve a government they can trust

David Fagan writes in The Conversation (3.2.15) that whoever becomes the next Queensland premier has a chance to wind back the winner-takes-all approach that has worked its way back into the state’s political culture over the past decade, particularly under the take-no-prisoners premiership of Campbell Newman.

 ‘In fact, a commitment to do so may be central to the next premier’s ability to woo crossbenchers and form a minority government, unless Labor can reach a majority in its own right.

‘Improving accountability in Queensland will be crucial to restore the electorate’s lost faith in government and its institutions. These are some of the quick gains that Labor leader Annastacia Palaszczuk and any prospective leaders of the Liberal National Party should be considering right now.’
