The Resignation of Adam Brooks

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens Leader

 

On behalf of the Tasmanian Greens, I wish outgoing Braddon Liberal MP, Adam Brooks, all the best.

 

We recognise Mr Brooks has experienced significant personal and health struggles in recent times and that this has taken a heavy personal toll.

 

I hope he is well along the road to recovery.

 

It’s fair to say Mr Brooks’ contribution in Parliament has been mixed.

 

Adam Brooks spoke up for his Braddon constituency and loyally defended his Liberal colleagues, but his constant attacks on the Greens and the wider conservation movement will not be missed.

 

On a personal level outside the Chamber, I always found Mr Brooks to be affable, likeable and good humoured.

 

Adam Brooks still has plenty to contribute to his community.

 

I hope Mr Brooks recovers well and is soon able to invest his considerable energies into something positive, about which he’s passionate and that brings him happiness.

    Kate, you quote Rockcliff.

    The election was about money, or the lack of it.

    The Greens had no money.

    The Liberals still have not accounted for the source of over $4 million in slush money out of the $5 million they actually declared.

    The Gambling Lobby, in an effort to protect its poker machine rivers of gold, bought the election for the Liberals.

    It is that simple.

    White and Labor were actually campaigning for the good of Tasmania .. but the message was blinded by an avalanche of money.

    I am sure it is comforting to know that all those Tasmanian families whose lives will be ruined by one armed bandits will owe it to you and yours good sense.

    Does this give you a nice warm fuzzy feeling as the Rockcliff arse warms the parliamentary leather while he’s on couple of hundred thousand dollars a year?

    One of you Liberal Party insiders blatantly lied about his use of a technology which might have trapped him and cost him his job.

    He should have been sacked by your weak kneed leader immediately — but not in your corrupt Tasmania.

    How decisive was the Liberal win if the Speaker – one who has shown integrity and to whom the Premier has not spoken since the election votes against your legislation?

    The legislation will not pass, which makes it in my book a hung parliament.

    Why therefore has White thrown in the towel .. or has she and her party been bought as well?

    Dear Cassy of the “Kooky conspiracy theory prone” Greens ..

    As you only have two members in the Lower House and nil representation in the Upper House, it would appear that Adam Brooks is not the only person in Tasmania who thinks very little of you.

    http://www.parliament.tas.gov.au/ParliamentSearch/isysquery/35808ad7-a68d-4e0b-b802-20d6d5d5687c/1/doc/#term0_1

    House of Assembly Wednesday 2 May 2018 (Hansard)…

    “Mr ROCKLIFF
    Try as the Greens might to drum up issues through what is really their game play book, and that is kooky conspiracy theories, they simply have not had the backing of the Tasmanian people. The Tasmanian people on 3 March spoke loudly and very clearly. They voted very clearly for the Liberal Government. They were decisive in abandoning the Greens as well. That is why we are having internal Greens inquiries into the most disastrous election campaign ever for the Tasmanian Greens.”
