Palaszczuk’s Captain’s Call Cost Queenslanders $13,600
Liberal National Party Shadow Minister for Sport John-Paul Langbroek said the true cost of Annastacia Palaszczuk’s captain’s call had been revealed today in Estimates.
“Annastacia Palaszczuk’s call was out of touch and insensitive to the grief that the Mackenroth family were experiencing after the passing of Terry,” Mr Langbroek said.
“The whole saga became a debacle and it took far too long for Annastacia Palaszczuk to drop the idea.
“Her own Cabinet didn’t even back her captain’s call.
“To make matters worse, the Premier tried to use the new Alfie Langer statue announcement as a smokescreen to cover her bad captain’s call.
“Not only was it a bad idea, but it cost Queensland taxpayers $13,600.
“Every Queenslander knows it’s our sporting heroes that put fans in the seats, not politicians.”
Mr Langbroek said to make matters worse, Annastacia Palaszczuk tried to claim the sign was only small.
“I don’t think anyone would think a 12 metre sign was a ‘small sign’ – given that it is the equivalent of a four storey building,” Mr Langbroek said.
“It shows how out of touch Annastacia Palaszczuk is.”
