The Queensland Party Celebrates 1st Birthday

New Parties Show Political System is Vulnerable

Queensland Party Leader, Aidan McLindon, has welcomed the first birthday of The Queensland Party with enthusiasm saying that the party's consistent growth over the past 12 months demonstrates that the ALP and LNP are no longer meeting the needs of Queenslanders.

“The Queensland Party held its first meeting on Queensland Day one year ago and in that time it has grown branches from Cairns to the Gold Coast and endorsed candidates for nearly one third of Queensland seats. The party is beginning to unveil its shadow cabinet of spokespeople to offer a real alternative to a complacent government and incompetent opposition,” said Mr McLindon.
 
“Our democracy thrives on the competition of ideas and decent policy and that is exactly what The Queensland Party brings to the table.”

“The Queensland Party has consistently released more policy than the official opposition covering critical areas such as the prevention of asset sales, a moratorium on the flawed coal seam gas industry, raising the payroll tax threshold, local health boards, public transport for seniors, the reinstatement of an upper house without any extra politicians and real law and order measures just to list a few."

“It is great to see at the federal level a new party emerging that has similar goals and aspirations as The Queensland Party and look forward to working with any other party or individual prepared to put forward positive policy for Queensland.”
 
“Bob Katter and I have spoken on a number of occasions over the past 12 months and I am hopeful that a new political dynamic is beginning to form. This will provide a credible alternative for voters who are sick and tired of the way the ALP/LNP have been taking the people of this great state for granted.”
 
Mr McLindon added that The Queensland Party would be making further announcements regarding candidates and spokespeople in the coming weeks and would be continuing to liaise with other like-minded parties, organisations and independents to make sure Queenslanders are properly represented.
