"Lowering the bar will lead to lower standards for all," says KAP State Leader and Member for Mt Isa Rob Katter who holds grave concerns for the future of the taxi industry following the Queensland Government's announcement.
In response to the Premier's announcement of a $100 million industry assistance package reported on earlier today, Mr Katter believes safety and fairness must remain the priority before any changes take place.
KAP Member for Kennedy Bob Katter is humbled by the result of the 2016 Federal election that has returned him to Kennedy with more than an 11 per cent swing.
“I thank the hundreds of great Australians who stood outside in the wind, hot sun and in some places cold handing out our How to Vote Cards passionately for Kennedy and the future of their country; and everyone who voted. And I thank my brilliant strategy team who got our key messages out there.
Drawing parallels to the United Kingdom's recent 'Brexit' from the European Union, the Katter's Australian Party candidate for Herbert Colin Dwyer has called on North Queensland to seek its own independence.
The self-styled 'North Quexit' would see the state of Queensland split in order to improve federal representation for Northern Queenslanders, something Mr Dwyer believes the region desperately needs.
Katter’s Australian Party ‘Man with the 3D Plan’ today spoke in praise of the Channel 7 article featuring Colleen Murray’s prosthetic ear replacement in Melbourne.
“These are the sort of life changing moments that can become everyday events if you, Longman voters, have the courage to help build my vision here in Caboolture.” Mr Kennedy said when hearing of the Channel feature last night.
The Sugar industry is at risk of reverting to the deregulated marketing model of the past if the LNP is returned this Federal election.
Last year Katter’s Australian Party effectively negotiated a tailor made sugar marketing act (the Real Choice in Marketing Bill) through the Parliament in order to return stability to the industry and bring balance back to the business relations with farmers and millers providing huge relief to sugar producers and their communities.
Katter’s Australian Party Senate Candidate Rowell Walton said KAP would not allow Australians to Ban the Live export of cattle.
“Our producers have no ability to find a home for cattle inside the domestic market and so export is the only way forward,” he said.
“These dreadful pictures horrify everybody. They demonstrate a clear failure of the Federal government and authorities to maintain decent standards in transport and killing of cattle.
