Palaszczuk Govt ‘moving in right direction’

A quick wordFor a government weighed down by ‘gaffes and blunders’ and an ‘inability to cement its popularity with the electorate’, according to the Courier Mail’s 4 January editorial, recent figures would suggest that after almost a year in office the Palaszczuk government has done comparatively well.

The Newspoll released on Christmas Eve showed that not only was the Premier leading Lawrence Springborg by a country mile but that after almost a year in office the ALP leads the opposition 52-48 percentage points on a two-party-preferred basis. Palaszczuk’s “de-Newmanisation” program was essential after the dehumanising policies of Campbell Newman.

Newman’s record on unemployment was hardly more impressive with unemployment levels peaking at 7 per cent. The latest December figures showed Queensland’s unemployment rate to be at 5.9%, the second lowest of all the states.

There’s always much to do but with increased expenditure on education and health the Palaszczuk government is moving in the right direction.
