Comments in today’s Australian newspaper by the former Speaker that she “may back Labor” confirm that a vote for anyone other than the Liberals is a vote for the chaos of a Labor-Green-independent minority government.
And because Rebecca White has ruled out serving a Premier in a minority government, if you vote for an independent you simply won’t know who you’ll get as Premier. Will it be the union-controlled David O’Byrne?
Minority Governments just don’t work.
The last year has proven that you need majority Government to be able to make the tough decisions that are so often necessary.
And Tasmania, now more than ever, needs the certainty only a majority Government can provide.
The only way to get majority Government is by voting for your local Liberal candidates.
