Labor needs to explain why they are opposed to even looking at a proposal that on face value will deliver an extra $112 million for Tasmania and then increased revenue in perpetuity.
We owe it to every Tasmanian to closely examine this proposal as an extra $112 million would deliver more nurses, more teachers, and more frontline services.
We have worked with our Federal colleagues, and today’s result shows you get a better outcome when you pick up the telephone, rather than the megaphone.
Even Federal Labor have not ruled out supporting the proposal, saying that a responsible alternative Government should look at it.  However by opposing it without even considering it, Rebecca White is prepared to sacrifice an extra $112 million that could be spent on essential services.
Ms White has clearly given up on developing a plan for Tasmania and is now nothing more than the leader of a doomsday cult.
