Queensland One Nation leader and Member for Buderim, Steve Dickson says the LNP decision to preference the ALP ahead of him in the coming election shows they are no longer a party of principles, but rather bitter opportunists who would cut off their nose to spite their face.

Mr Dickson said despite the fact he left the LNP, he is still a conservative and is proud to represent the conservative voters of Buderim.

“With pre-polling opening today, I have preferenced the LNP ahead of the ALP and Green candidates in Buderim.

“There is no way that as a conservative I could ask the voters of Buderim who support me, to then vote for the ALP ahead of the LNP.

“It is astounding that the LNP will actually give their preference vote to the ALP, especially seeing that their candidate is the son of the LNP Regional Chair.

“For the next 12 days I will make it my duty to inform LNP voters in Buderim that they are also supporting the ALP if they follow the party directions. I am sure it will come as shock to most of them.

“The reason I left the LNP was because of the way the Buderim electorate had been ignored for years because it was a safe LNP seat.

“My switch to One Nation has had a dramatic impact on the attitude of both major parties. Both have suddenly decided they can find funding for the major infrastructure projects the Sunshine Coast deserved to have years ago.

“It is the sort of cynical and superficial politics by the major parties that has so alienated the electors and they won’t be fooled by their late attempt to buy their votes.

“While parties can indicate to their supporters how they should allocate preferences on polling day, the voter can make up their own mind if they don’t agree with the party direction.

“I am hopeful that LNP supporters will see the folly in their preference going to the ALP ahead of One Nation,” Mr Dickson said.
