Queenslanders don't want privatisation. It's time for Lawrence Springborg to move away from privatisation once and for all.

This petition had 7,161 supporters


Over the past two election cycles Queenslanders have made it abundantly clear that they don't want to see the privatisation of their assets and services. 

Now, Lawrence Springborg thinks people like you might be willing to 'reconsider' your position and support this agenda of privatisation of electricity, hospitals and more.

You can see the whole story here. 

"But I think people will watch with some degree of interest what's happened in New South Wales, and the important thing for any government is to not get ahead of where the voters are at.

"So maybe one day the voters might want to reconsider that sort of thing."

Straight after the election Lawrence Springborg was desperate to cling to power, talking to crossbench MPs and claimed the LNP had walked away from its privatisation agenda.

Amid internal LNP chaos in the political wilderness, Lawrence Springborg is again showing his desperation to fend off a challenge by signalling his preparedness to move towards privatisation to satisfy big business backers and their political allies. 

Queenslanders understand what an agenda of privatisation means - service cuts in our regions, job losses and taxpayers' money lining the pockets of big companies. It's an agenda that sells us all short, an agenda that you have repeatedly rejected. 

Isn't it time that Lawrence Springborg finally stood for something and stood up once and for all against privatisation?

Queenslanders want their leaders to deliver better services, a safe environment and an economy that works for all of us. 

Tell Lawrence Springborg to walk away from privatisation once and for all.
