The Liberal National Party's ancestor: the Country and Progressive National Party : Comments

By David Moore, published 16/3/2012

Queensland politics has been tainted for the best part of a century by the vilification of the Moore government.

Sadly, we already know how the LNP will perform.

A rush back to the worst elements of the Joh era, with planning laws going and free gifts being thrown at 'developers'.

State schools will be turned into extensions (beyond what Bligh has already done) of the Christian church, particularly if Tim Mander ends up as Education minister, although it really makes no difference if it is him or Fiona Simpson, or any other of the new breed of old heads.

There will be a rush, even more than under Bligh, of new mines and publicly supplied ports and rail lines for mines.

Road building will dominate over public transport.

Public schools will be handed over to small groups of batshitcrazy parents to run with small cliques of Christian teachers and dunderheaded principals with no principles.

The LNP is a hybrid beast, and can best be described as a mutant, that should have been aborted prior to birth.

The Liberals missed a chance to create a genuine liberal party, one that took in some of the agrarian elements of the old Nats, and developed a Qld version of liberalism that appealed to city voters as well as country voters.

The LNP is just a headless chook, although it is probably safer to have Cando at the helm that one of the Johboys.
