The Liberal minority government has the wrong priorities and a stadium mess.
This whole stadium debacle is all of Jeremy Rockliff’s making.
He has signed Tasmania up to a secret deal with Australia’s richest sport and appears to have caved in to all their demands.
Jeremy Rockliff has failed to stand up for Tasmania and still can’t answer questions about how much his stadium will cost, who will fund the overruns, and whether he got an exemption from our GST allocation for the $240 million in Federal Government funding.
He won’t even answer questions about when he asked for the GST exemption.
Two members of the Liberal party have quit because they don’t have confidence Jeremy Rockliff has the right priorities.
Tasmania’s health system is being held together by sticky tape, waitlists for social housing are longer than ever and cost-of-living pressures are impacting families across the state.
Premier Rockliff has the wrong priorities, he’s had no support for the stadium decision, he’s stopped listening to Tasmanians, he’s stopped listening to his party room and he’s now leading a minority government. How is he still leader?
