FIRST of all – no, I didn’t vote for Jacqui Lambie.
And yes, like most Tasmanians, recognise that she could do with lots of elocution lessons (think Eliza Doolittle).
But, we need to acknowledge that she is the first Tasmanian politician for years who has made an effort to support Tasmania – rather than Sydney-Melbourne-Brisbane’s “faceless men”.
We also need to acknowledge that our federal Greens politicians have, for 30-odd years, tried to remove paper production, hydro-electricity, forestry, mining, dairy and agriculture from the Tasmanian landscape, when in theory, they were elected to ensure that Tasmania suffers no disadvantage when compared with the rest of Australia.
Meanwhile, Tasmanian wages are lower, house prices are lower and stagnant, food is generally more expensive and fuel is 20¢ higher in Tasmania than in Melbourne, a mere 400 kilometres north.
Tasmania needs federal politicians who will stand up for Tasmania.
We don’t need “yes men” who toe the party line, nor do we need those who will happily sacrifice Tasmania in their attempts to pursue personal prejudices.
— ROB CLARK, Burnie.
