The Palaszczuk Government’s extraordinary incompetence has been exposed with Estimates revealing an extra $3 billion of taxpayers’ money has been wasted.
This proves this third-term Labor government is losing control of spending in Queensland.
This money could have built two hospitals including Toowoomba’s Hospital Redevelopment bringing with it 27% more beds, and employing thousands of nurses in the middle of a health crisis.
It is clear the Palaszczuk Government consistently chooses politics and secrecy over people and transparency.
The list compiled from just the last two weeks is extraordinary:
Wellcamp cost Queenslanders at least $220 million
A $2 million advertising strategy produced 2 tradies
Millions of dollars allocated to a Koala Lab was put into a new rollercoaster
Taxpayer money is being used to stop a report about Jackie Trad from being made public
30 complaints have been made to the CCC regarding the QBCC
Government never told energy retailers to provide power bill rebate
Cross River Rail has blown out to $8 billion
Energy sector’s IT upgrade has blown out by $186 million
Ambulance ramping has hit a new level at 45%
Ambulance bypass is back

Satellite Hospitals are delayed and over budget

Almost $1 million was spent on the Caloundra Youth Jail before the project was cancelled
Government trying to recoup $4 million of small business grants made in error Queenslanders deserve so much better than this.
