Just a champion for our community well done Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Serving Our Community

WOW ... Great Minds at work and well done Mr Thompson OAM MP

Awesome am so impressed God bless you abundantly 🙏

😂😂😂😂😂

When they covered up the murder of my family in Townsville, it didn’t upset them much, they even called at night and threatened they wanted so badly to cover up the murder , I doubt that other than raising the level of chauvinism, these citizens of Townsville can change anything .

What's the magic of Townsville Police? - = corruption nepotism inogring careerism deliberate fraud lies, etc., add what I missed

On yay Phil...making Australia 🇦🇺 less shit! MALS!

SHAVE FOR DYLAN: Dylan is a young apprentice who has been diagnosed with a rare disease that will cause him to go blind. His workmates at Western Truck Group came together and decided to shave their heads as a fundraiser to support him on his journey to life without eyesight. Dylan is extremely upbeat and was cracking jokes about shaving off his mullet. Dylan you’re a legend mate!

Perhaps The Transport Workers' Union of Australia (TWU) would like to chip in and donate to this young Dylan the apprentice?

If any of you are out of work... sewing... knitting... crochet....and so forth can be learnt to make goods for money...maybe Dylan might like to try playing an instrument by ear for some more money or sing ...I understand to some extent... I have blind and deaf relatives and my own sight is rather weak...take care Dylan

Congratulations to our newest Aussies

It was a great pleasure meeting you in the Citizenship Ceremony Mr MP. You are awesome 😊. Thank you 🙏.

Welcome to the new Aussies I still remember when many years ago I became an Australian my friends clapping 👏 and cheering 📣 it was great 😍

Thank you so much Mr Phillip Thompson. It was great to meet you in person. Keep smiling 😊

WELCOME .. Darling People

Welcome to the best country!!

All these people are so happy and proud to become Australian. Why should they have to say Sorry and acknowledge that Australia does not belong to them. #Australia is for all of us and Jan 26th IS our National Day. 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺

Good n you Phillip you are our asset

Mr Thompson OAM MP my family and I are so proud that there are many more wonderful people to share our country with ❤️

Congrats, I'm still waiting for mine, hopefully not too much longer

Pleasure to meeting you sir.

Wonderful to see

Flag of Federation

It’s great they get to meet a real Australian not just some wokeass Labor politician like Albanese

Couldn’t have had a better person presenting these flags ,shame it couldn’t have been done on Australia Day ,

Isn’t it terrible that these people are more patriotic to Oz than the citizens that are born here. Well done to you all, and you to Delta Foxtrot for being there and presenting them with their flags 🫡

Fabulous staff & atmosphere - always. A pleasure to come in & donate. ❤️

It’s a good cause, well done mate.

That's awesome thanks for the care and love how I wish you extend your love towards these orphans I will be of benefit to them God bless you abundantly.

Love it if you could donate blood as well as I have blood that would help everyone

I realise the NRL is all about a profit these days and is a business. But there are folk who actually live outside of the cities who also have children and adults who love rugby league. Without support they struggle to keep their clubs going....all volunteers, all doing their best. The NRL seems to have forgotten about them

Number 237 tomorrow

Your heart is in the right place brother

Hope you rolled up your sleeve a bit further and donated while you were there.

Bloody hell Angela Simon you are shorter than him 🤭🤭

I wish they would take whole blood.

There is one problem. My dear friends Glenda and Graham. Goddard who have given 500+ and 600+ donations who were asked to be there where not on the news nor in todays paper.

Mr Thompson OAM MP I too donated blood when I was young...more of us should I believe...

Are they taking blood from jabbed people and mixing it with unjabbed?

So are they taking blood again?

Anthony Albanese’s new carbon tax on vehicles will increase the cost of Australia's most popular cars. A Ford Ranger could increase by $6150, a Toyota Landcruiser by $13250. This is a big government approach. ... See MoreSee Less

your a joke Phillip, you do nothing for Townsville. acting like you're the one making a difference.

Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Serving Our Community Would be a GREAT PM..... #justsaying

It will be great to see you as PM in the future Phil !

They are going to make electric vehicles more affordable than combustion..we all know this. They will say something along the lines of it’s our choice to buy what we want but we will make it harder for you if you don’t go electric. Sounds like something else that has already happened.

How about a carbon tax on electric cars due to the manufacturing process

Yes just another tax on the Australian public

With the Labor way of thinking, a tax will fix a problem. Can we introduce a Labor tax? Maybe that will fix their party.

Yes Phil , more costs work utes / vehicles . Small hospitality businesses North Qld + $30,000 increase electricity Qld Govt Corporation + $23,000 insurance impacting viability .

Alison Craig

Just been to Europe where some countries have seen electric cars and busses, trucks are just not the future. New Zealand have realized that too. Why go down a broken way to please a few wannabe’s?

AMEN 🙏 Name one thing the Government makes better?

No matter what party you vote for I'd like to see people in this country stand up and demand no lurks and perks for politicians they have to provide their own motor vehicle they only get a GST back on that and the kilometers they travel also ex prime ministers once you've lost your job that's it no more government perks paid by the taxpayer

Labor is all about tax tax tax and inventing new ways to tax just like this one. Don’t worry lots more to come you can blame the labor green and teal voters for this🤮

So where do they justify taking all the extra money

They want us to walk.

As if it isn’t hard enough. They just don’t get it do they!

Albo and his incompetent party can start packing their bags 🎒 now they will be going at the next election 😡

Labour party Albanese is the worst prime minister Australia has ever had get them out fast they are just full of lies and just keep ripping us off

We are kidding ourselves if we think we will save the world. China, India etc need to be pulled into line first. Albo is nothing g more than a woke wanker. I stopped voting labor a long time ago.

Always wonder what happend to the fat kidd from Hey Dad!

Isn't those a carbon tax by another name?????

How good is the propaganda eh? They’ve got the populace believing CO2 is toxic. When in reality: plants thrive in high CO2 and perish in a low CO2 environment.

Albo Sleazy and his loony leftardretarded woke brigade warrant a one way ticket to Mecca, Medina, Mogadishu, Mozambique, or Mars.

We already have the most expensive cars compared to the rest of the world. What type of fuckery is going on🤨

He’s chatting shit all talk until he comes in parliament
