‘They haven’t been listening’: Labor politician campaigns against her own party

Veteran Labor politician Jo-Ann Miller has engaged in friendly fire with her own party over attitudes towards coal mining.

The former Police Minister told Scott Emerson she’s willing to campaign against Labor at the next election if they go ahead with a proposed incinerator in Ipswich.

She also took issue with the party’s lack of vocal support for coal, accusing them of turning their backs on workers.

“The mining industry … supports 372,000 jobs, it contributes $5 billion in coal royalties.”
