Anna, Anna, Anna – can you not dream up some more smears to throw at Campbell Newman (don’t mention all the Labor politicians who have been jailed and/or found guilty of corruption, by the way)? Time is running out.
This campaign seems to have created a new low in politics. (Let’s all have a bit of chuckle over Pete’s (Beattie) opinion that Anna has campaigned very well. Hee, hee.)
[Anna Bligh] said the poll made it clear Labor was facing a “David and Goliath” battle and her role was to ensure her party still had enough seats to form a healthy opposition.
“If the poll is replicated, we’re not only set to see a change in government, but potentially one in which that government has almost unfettered power,” she said.LNP leader Campbell Newman says a Labor smear campaign against him is a threat to democracy, as the Queensland election enters its final week.QUEENSLAND’S Labor government is headed for a devastating defeat at Saturday’s state election, if the latest opinion poll proves accurate.
“I don’t think that’s good for Queensland and I don’t think it’s healthy for a democracy.
“So that tells me it’s my duty is to get out there and hang on to as many seats as we possibly can.”
Ms Bligh also defended a Labor campaign attacking LNP leader Campbell Newman’s personal integrity.
The Crime and Misconduct Commission on Friday cleared Mr Newman of any impropriety over three separate issues that have plagued his campaign.
Labor has repeatedly referenced the allegations in the lead up to polling day.
“I think calling into question the suitability of your opponent is a very legitimate activity during the campaign,” she said.
“If Queenslanders are contemplating a change then I do think we need to know more about who they’re contemplating changing to.
“There are a lot of questions about Mr Newman’s financial dealings and his time as lord mayor.”
