ALP should borrow from LNP

4BC Summer Drive: Griffith University political scientist and journalism lecturer Dr Paul Williams joined 4BC Summer Drive Show with Mark Braybrook on an idea put forward by former Premier, Peter Beattie, suggesting the Queensland ALP should borrow strategies from the LNP.

Beattie thinks the Queensland Labor Party needs to freshen up its way of thinking and way of doing business and sees nothing wrong with using successful strategies employed by the LNP that saw Campbell Newman swept to power in this year's state election.

Blog comments Your Say

  • The gall of this hidious PM who is the greatest trasher of Australian democracy, culture, way of life and outright hatred of all Australians particularly with the sexist bent.
    "PRIME Minister Julia Gillard has accused the Liberal Party of trying to make democracy ''the plaything of cashed-up interest groups'', after the Queensland government opened the door to the abolition of compulsory voting..(SMH)"
    I wonder if the gormeless Beatie will support this initiative from Campbell after his advice to the lacklustre Labor party of failures.

  • Beatie has always been devoid of any thinking, he only thinks about what is in it for me. Another of labor's abject failures living the last five or six years off the taxpayers troughs.
