Labor Screws Tassie, But WiIl Greenies Care?

7 Sep

Media release – Senator Barnaby Joyce, 7 September 2011:

Regional Tasmania gets nothing

Funding for projects across Australia has been announced today from the Regional Development Australia Fund and regional Tasmania gets – nothing.

A big cheerio and congratulations to the regional Labor party members in Tasmania who got – nothing, out of the first round of funding.

You should consider becoming an Independent because Tony Windsor got $8 million which is more than the whole of Tasmania got. In fact, Tony Windsor’s seat alone got about 25% more than the whole of Tasmania got.

If you want to get something in Tasmania you should be like the member for the seat of Dennison who took a seat off you.

In fact he got $6.63 million off you because you got – nothing. Yes, to be a Labor party member in regional Tasmania means that you deserve nothing. You are just jolly good people who can be taken for granted.

My advice to you is to be like Tony Windsor and go independent and you get that opportunity at the vote for the carbon tax.

You can thank your party for giving you nothing by voting against the carbon tax which virtually no one in your seats wants.

    I did see a program that suggested that Tasmania was greatly dependent on government funding, like 60%. Was that from the State or Federal? Well – they chose the Green way of life, discouraging industry to come there. And if they impose this poker machine reforms and carbon tax, they’ll be even worse off. It’s such a beautiful state too, you’d reckon that tourism would rate high on the agenda, particularly from overseas as well as mainland Australia.
