Anna Palmer to contest seat of Currumbin

Anna Palmer will contest the seat of Currumbin in the upcoming Queensland election to fight for a better deal for families.

The Executive of Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party has endorsed Mrs Palmer for the key Gold Coast electorate, saying she had the most to offer the people of Currumbin and Queensland.

“As a mother, I am appalled with how the current Queensland Labor government is treating families,’’ Mrs Palmer said.

“The Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young have shown no compassion or common sense during this pandemic.

“We have seen their true colours in the heartless treatment of Queenslanders, barring family members from hospital visits and attending funerals when there has been no sound medical grounds to do so.

“Meanwhile movie stars and celebrities appear free to move as they please.  The double standards being shown by the Queensland Labor government are a disgrace,’’ Mrs Palmer said.

Mrs Palmer said the Queensland Government’s proposed death tax was another firm reminder that it had lost its moral compass.

“The only way Labor can reduce its debt is by taking from Queensland families. They are out of ideas and have no policies that can deliver growth and a strong economic future for this state,’’ Mrs Palmer said.

“Under a returned Labor Government, we will see family assets taken by the state to cover its $120 billion debt blowout.

“Our children and grandchildren will have assets stolen from them after the hard efforts and endeavours of those before them,’’ Mrs Palmer said.

“Queenslanders work so hard for their money, why should the Government receive a 20% handout because of its own incompetence?

“We need a new deal for Queensland,’’ she said.
