Australian Labor Head Anthony Albanese Determines Queensland Voting Pitch



Commonwealth Labor Party leader Anthony Albanese addressed the Queensland ALP State Conference in Brisbane, less than a year before the next election.

Albanys called for regional and city votes in a speech at the Queensland Labor Conference.

In an election scheduled within 12 months, Commonwealth Labor leaders drew attention to the state of Sunshine.

In 2019, the party won only six seats in Queensland, down two from the 23 seats of the Liberal National Party.

Labor’s next poll radar includes seats in Longman, Reichhardt, Dixon, Brisbane, Flynn, Bowman, Capricornia, and Dawson.

Albany’s told Labor Party followers in Queensland that the Morrison administration had “forgotten” the state.

He gave an example of a proposal to build a quarantine facility at Well Camp Airport in Toowoomba, but the Prime Minister claims it is not stacked.

“It turns out that while it makes perfect sense to build a dedicated quarantine facility in Queensland, Scott Morrison’s proposal for the real plan of quarantine was rejected without inspection. The reaction was to choose a fight, “he said on Saturday.

However, plans for sites near Well Camp Airport do not meet the requirement of being close to the international airport and are not close to the quarantine sites of existing hotels.

The candidate site, about 150km from Brisbane, is also considered too far from the tertiary hospital.

Queensland’s proposal is believed to be inadequate in detail compared to the 80-page comprehensive document from Victoria. Victoria signed a MOU with Morrison this week for its own dedicated facility.

According to Albany’s, the pandemic provides opportunities to regain power by strengthening the role of local public services, improving health and education services, and growing both traditional and new industries.

Labor has fine-tuned its message on coal and mining more broadly as it faced a backlash from local seats over climate and energy policy in the last election.

“We are confident that Queensland’s traditional industry has a future,” says Albanese.

For example, mining accounts for almost 12% of Queensland’s economy.

“Queensland’s huge coal and bauxite reserves are of very high quality and are highly regarded abroad.

“But we also know that it is important to support emerging industries, and in many cases new industries are supported by traditional industries.

“For example, to produce one wind turbine, we need more than 200 tonnes of coal for metallurgy.”

At a previous meeting, Mr. Paraschuk said he could build a quarantine center in the area where the plane would land next to him, as long as the prime minister was willing to say whether he would support the move.

“We are not proposing to build the International Space Station,” she said.

“These are reasonably basic structures, but they can provide the safety and certainty that our country needs.”

The Prime Minister said Queensland has prioritized elderly care and disabled residents at vaccination hubs, with more than 3,000 registered already.

Eighteen facilities will open on Saturday, adding more places for people aged 40 to 49 to register for Pfizer syringes, along with existing hospital clinics.

Palastsk also promised that the June 15 state budget would focus on “more jobs, more industries, more manufacturing” and Queensland products.
