The federal leader of the Palmer United Party, Clive Palmer, has called on Queenslanders to deliver a strong protest to Premier Campbell Newman at Saturday’s federal election.

“Queenslanders can send a strong message to Campbell Newman with their votes that they won’t stand for his government selling our schools and hospitals and outsourcing services,” Mr Palmer said.

“Since he won office nearly 18 months ago, Mr Newman has been continually slashing essential services and sacking staff.

“He has been running Queensland down with poor economic management and savage cuts to public sector jobs and budget spending.

“The Palmer United Party has been standing up for these workers and will continue to fight for them and for our hospitals and schools to be properly funded.

“By Queenslanders voting for the Palmer United Party, we can make amends for the many wrongs being committed by both our state and federal politicians.”

The Palmer United Party has announced it would make $80 billion available to reform health and hospital services in Australia if it wins the election.

The Palmer United Party is the only party to have nominated candidates in all 150 House of Representative seats at the September 7 election. Mr Palmer is standing in the Sunshine Coast seat of Fairfax.
