Newman Should Support Bob Irwin, Sign LNP MP’s CSG Moratorium Petition

Bob Irwin’s Court Appearance Tomorrow
CSG Moratorium Petition Largest Open

Queensland Party Leader Aidan McLindon has urged Campbell Newman to support Bob Irwin and a moratorium on coal seam gas mining by signing the e-petition launched by LNP Member for Warrego, Howard Hobbs.

“Mr Newman, as a member for the public, has forty-eight hours left in which to show that he is truly in favour of regional and rural Queensland’s interests. By signing this petition he will also be showing his support for the courageous actions of Bob Irwin, who was arrested for his peaceful protest against CSG mining.”

“Mr Newman has a choice now to support the LNP Member for Warrego’s petition for a CSG moratorium, or he can prove, once again, that LNP Members of Parliament are no more than puppets for the LNP Executive to use and discard as they see fit.”

“Queensland needs a moratorium on CSG mining until the health and environmental impacts on the Great Artesian Basin and rural and regional Queensland are known.”

“This petition is by the far the largest petition currently open, proving that this is an issue that Queenslanders are passionate about.”

“Unfortunately, like so many other policy areas, the ALP and LNP have exactly the same policy on CSG mining and both parties are not prepared to listen to the people of Queensland.”

The e-petition can be found at:
