    LNP vies for Hanson-esque flip-flop award

    Deb Frecklington has undermined her own leadership after changing her stance on renewables after barely a month.

    Energy Minister Dr Anthony Lynham said the Opposition Leader had changed the state LNP’s entire position after reaising she’d clashed with the Prime Minister.

    “Deb Frecklington’s flip-flopping could rival Pauline Hanson’s,” Dr Lynham said. 

    “Last month she told Parliament that an LNP Government would require government-owned generators to support renewable energy.“Yesterday her boss said it shouldn’t be mandated.

    “Today, she says it’s up to the generators what sort of energy they invest in.

    “The question is – does the LNP support renewables, or not, or has their renewable commitment lasted as long as Tony Abbott’s promise not to undermine the PM?

    “This is why we can’t trust anything the LNP says about asset sales.

    “Deb Frecklington – please explain.

    “The Palaszczuk Labor Government is rock-solid on our position.

    “No asset sales, and we can, and will, continue to drive down electricity prices.

    “Public ownership works.”
