Backflip on Blue Cards proves Labor got it wrong

Published:

LNP Shadow Minister for Fire and Emergency Services Lachlan Millar said the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s backflip today on blue cards for rural firies showed the implementation had been bungled from the very beginning.

“Queensland is only months away from bushfire season and our volunteer rural firefighters will play a vital role in protecting communities across the state,” Mr Millar said.

“The whole time the Palaszczuk Labor Government spent threatening to sack our rural firies should have spent working with them and getting our state bushfire-prepared.

“Labor Minister Craig Crawford must personally apologise to each and every rural fire volunteer today over this fiasco and the way he has treated our rural firies.

“Queensland couldn’t afford to have thousands of rural firies hand in their badges in the lead up to bushfire season and Labor pushing back the deadline for a third time is an admission they have botched this whole process.

“Clearly Labor should never have threatened to sack our rural firies.

“Rural volunteer firefighters have been treated appallingly by Labor throughout this entire saga, and it’s still not over.

“An LNP Government led by Deb Frecklington would work with our rural firies, not threaten them with the sack.”
