Premier must act now

This week is the most critical Parliamentary sitting since the election of the Palaszczuk Government over seven years ago.

This is the week the Premier and her Ministers can prove they still value accountability and transparency.

So far, all the Premier has proven is she doesn’t listen to Queenslanders.

This is the week the government can show promises they put at the forefront of their election in 2015 still matter today.

Over the past month, the Premier has announced or pointed to five different reviews.

None of these reviews will fully investigate the damning claims by whistleblowers or provide the protection they need.

Only a Royal Commission has the power to compel witnesses, protect whistleblowers and give Queenslanders the answers they need.

If the government spends the week dodging calls for a Royal Commission, you know that accountability in this state is dead.
