Where are the policies?

IT seems Gladstone region voters are being fed breadcrumbs to lead them to the bakery shop in terms of Liberal National Party announcements and policies.

The LNP Queensland Senate team, in visiting Gladstone yesterday, would not give exact times as to when LNP policies would be put on the table for voters to digest, but they spoke of funding announcements that have already been made during this election campaign and some yet to come for the region.

Senator Barnaby Joyce, who looks after regional development, promised there were some significant announcements for the Gladstone region to be made and mostly likely would be made by Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.

Senator Brett Mason hinted at an announcement that would give schools power over where funds were spent, while Senator Russell Trood hinted AusAID funding would be cut.

Senator George Brandis hinted there would be more funds for the Australian Federal Police and policies about dealing with organised crime. The Senators were campaign around the state.
