The Labor Party and LNP have entered into a historic power sharing agreement in Queensland.
Under an agreement brokered by independent MP Peter Wellington, each party will govern Queensland for a three year term before being thrown out and replaced by the other party.
Mr Wellington said that the new arrangement – already dubbed the Wellington Boot – “makes sense cos that’s what was basically happening anyway.”
“We all know neither of these mobs is fit to run a school tuck shop.”
“One lot can have a go for three years and then, when they stuff up, the other clowns can have their turn.”
Mr Wellington said that Labor could have first go under the new system because “the other lot have just had a turn and we all know where that got us”.
Wellington Boot brings certainty to Queensland
The major parties hope the Wellington Boot system will finally bring certainty to Queensland politics.
“Each party can now do what’s best for Queensland without worrying about trying to get re-elected,” said Premier-in-waiting Annastacia Palaszczuk.
A spokesman for the LNP endorsed Ms Palaszczuk’s comments, except for the bit about doing what’s best for Queensland.
