Aide For Queensland

Updated on April 7, 2021

How ironic, while watching the Seven Nightly News there was a report on the selling off of Queensland assets. Now in the same show, there is a group of Queenslanders raising money for Mongolian Aide. How about we raise money for Queensland aide and forget about Mongolia for the time being. In fact, us as a Queensland state should stop all of our charitable donations to all the foreign causes that are not directly related to Queensland. Our state is severely affected by debt and yet we sit on our hands and think there is nothing we can do about it.

In a poll that was recently conducted 80% of Queenslanders are against the selling off of our Queensland assets. Perhaps we should start our own charitable organisation – the Save Queensland Campaign. Do you think we will have organisations from other parts of the world come rushing to us? We have seen what happens to Australia when we sell off our assets to other parts of the world, and not to mention the appalling customer service that you now get from these overseas companies that operated efficiently while they were owned by us.

I like the idea that I can catch a ride on our Queensland owned rails to visit family in far-off places, sure I could drive the 14 hours but I feel safer in getting the train. But what will become of Queensland Rail? No longer it will be a Queensland icon. What of the people who will lose their jobs? How will they feed and clothe their families? Do we really want the next generation of children being born in Queensland to be raised begging on the streets?

Already there is a shortage of employment, housing, and adequate healthcare. Sure, selling off the assets in the short term is a good idea – it may possibly get Queensland out of debt but for the long term is nothing but a foggy cloud that will hang above every Queenslanders' head. If the selling off goes ahead surely we will not feel the ease of it in our pockets, they will just keep on jacking up the price of fuel, food, and general living expenses. The sad part is we don't even have a say in it, it will simply be forced upon us. Do we stand back and wait or do we stand up and fight for the things we believe in?
