#qldvotes election coverage.

Jump to latest blog entry.

Highlights

  • Tony Fitzgerald writes, “The lessons of Queensland’s dark past have been disregarded. This Saturday, Queenslanders must make clear their desire for good governance and effective democracy”: Queensland must put a stop to the political rot.
  • Dr Chris Davis writes, “The LNP betrayal of its 2012 mandate has harmed Queensland. What went wrong, and what is the solution?”: Chris Davis says LNP dangerous for democracy.
  • Margo Kingston writes, “The big picture theme of the Queensland election camapign has been the extraordinary alliance of people and parties across the political spectrum to oust the LNP”: No Fibs’ and Tony Fitzgerald’s #qldvotes Editorials.
  • The Sydney Morning Herald Editors write, “NSW voters have a relatively simple choice in March. They can re-elect the Liberal-National Baird government on its economic management record along with plans for more asset sales to fund infrastructure projects. Alternatively, voters can deliver Labor a shock victory to keep assets publicly owned and receive more investment in community services”: Campbell Newman and LNP must learn their lessons in Queensland.
  • Meg Hill writes, “Right now I am caught in a gap, an unfamiliar, vacuum-life period of time that began when I finished high school in the Northern Rivers of NSW and will end, hopefully, when I move interstate to Queensland and start university”: Impressions of #qldvotes by soon-to-be Qlder Meg Hill.
