On the eve of what will most likely be a landslide win for the LNP in Queensland one has to hope that things will get better. because even with all the nonsense about a 4 pillar economy and plans for more wasteful infrastructure spending, at least the LNP have policies in place to balance the budget and get rid of the hemorrhaging debt that Queensland owes, which alone makes them better than any of the other parties running. It’s not going to be all sunshine and roses once Campbell’s in, but at least cuts will be made and hopefully change the window of Queensland politics towards more fiscally responsible policy. All that being said, it’s still a miserable situation and so far from the ideal that it’s hopeless comparing it. The mere fact that it is compulsory to vote should make it obvious as to how messed up the whole thing is. It’s clearly a case of the lesser of two evils here, and from all standpoints the LNP is the slightly less evil one.
Any opinions or comments on the current election are welcome.
