Premier Newman has confirmed that LNP downsizing plans are on target.
Once a formal consultative process with the public is finalised on January 31, the Premier expects the LNP to govern Queensland with a smaller, stronger and more efficient group of state MPs.
“As I said after the Stafford by-election in July, the LNP has too many people on the parliamentary payroll.”
“The LNP is committed to small government.”
“If this means reducing our parliamentary majority to a more manageable figure, I’m all for it.”
Newman: Voting Labor is “good” for LNP
The Premier said that the Labor Party had stolen yet another LNP policy by calling for Queenslanders to vote out LNP MPs who weren’t up to the job.
“Think about it,” said Mr Newman.
“The LNP is running the same candidate in Stafford that just got pantsed at the by-election.”
“Would we be doing this if we wanted to win more seats?”
“Getting rid of some of the dead wood will be good for us.”
The Premier declined to comment if he would be let go as part of the LNP downsizing plans.
