Dont vote labor/greens its simple.

Palaszczuk does not really care because she knows that her party will be out in the next election she has a job lined up with the Olympics handling Billions of dollars 💵 . We the taxpayers pay politicians to manage and maintain QLD and to look after its citizens . The corrupt organisations such as the U.N W.H.O and others do not have the right to interfere with the running of this state or country. The politicians that we elect and pay are responsible for making the law’s to keep people safe and to improve our state. Yes I know I am DREAMING 💭.

All doing crime to get in jail for Christmas where they get tax payer funded gifts and air-conditioned comfort, shops, TV, games, etc...turn the bloody things into jails, not so-called correctional centres - because they are a total failure...what is the use if you want to come back there time and time again...wake up do-gooders...

Make them do hard time,no tv or game boys,only reward them with these for good behaviour,teach them something while they are incarcerated that will help them in life.

She has said publicly that 'it's a United nations directive and if we want to do anything about it we should take it up with them' is it also true that Australia has signed up to the WHO pandemic response essentially giving the WHO full control if there is ever another pandemic? Australians did not vote for the United nations, globalist politicians need to be exposed along with their green deal

Start showing their faces 

Sooner or later a citizen is going to take the law into their own hands, maybe that's what is needed.

This Government aren’t going to do anything they are hopeless on all fronts Health Crime Roads that’s not counting the things that are hidden

Will it take the wrong action of a good citizen to recorrect the wrong action of a bad citizen before the outstanding premier takes REAL action. This happened just the other day and the good citizen is being punished while the bad walk free.

I've heard so many young ones say juvie is awesome, mad, cool, it should be something they dislike, because at the moment it's setting the wrong example for future offending they don't care if they go to juvie because they enjoy it, how will they learn breaking the law is the wrong thing to do. No one can control their own children anymore because of the laws in place, police be too quick to slap you with a DVO for stopping your teenage child from doing dumb stuff. Back in my day I was too scared to do anything wrong because the severity of the punishment when I got home was way worse than any juvie or prison time.

Palaszczuk - EPIC FAIL

These people think they are smart, but it will follow them for the rest of their lives. No loans,no travelling, looking over their shoulders for the rest of their lives.

All in the agenda. Raise the crime rate so that it justifies more cameras!

And bring back the death penalty for the high hitters to free up some space. Maybe also a 3 strike you're out type of deal. Give a chance to turn their life around if not then we are not paying for you to live to old age in prison. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

They need to be sent to outback work camps. They would think twice if they had to actually do something.

Don't Detain just put them in adult jail

Ppl need to take this into their own hands ,justice system F&@ked

Vigilante comes to my mind, very often living in townsville, the youth crime capital of North Queensland

until they build boot camps nothing go to change

Like I keep asking and I keep getting ignored. What is the LNP going to do if they are put into running the state.

Outback labour sites that produce something that can be used to repay victims. Ideally work in sunlight building something for society.

I remember when I was away, my house nearly got broken into and the cops finger printed the window and said it would likely be young Anthony in the next road as he just got out after two weeks last week for his 44th crime at 14.. they also said they took him to dreamworld for the day as he was acting good .. this was around 10 years ago .

We need the flying squad. Go in, sort it out and let the general duties do the paperwork.

Every night now. It’s beyond anything we are already doing, we need some thing(s)to change!

Re-introducing a form of National Service (which would include disciplined custody, manual arts education, & Community care duties) for offenders would be a good start! Would improve Trades availability, thus helping Housing crisis.

Phillip, keep up the pressure on those 3 imposters, impersonating as politicians. 😂

couldn't arrange a meeting with you, got 1 with four labour people. so all good.

The Brisbane games should be cancelled until the health care system is fully operational as it should be,crime to be stamped out so we are on par with the Singapore justice system and fix all the infrastructure in QLD only when this done QLD can invite overseas people to play in any games and be proud to do so. At the moment it’s all about the money for a handful of people😡.

Are you going to be there next week? Would love to talk about WHO , I saw you are involved. Looking forward to talking with you. 🙏☺️

You need to be fighting to ease the cost of living by reducing the fuel ⛽️ tax currently being charged.

It is good to see that our Federal representative is out and about. We only see our state government representatives before an election!

Got bullied by a staff with Thai background online.

I missed you again I went to the mega markets at the sports complex I thought you might have been there. ah well next time.

What is the good of talking to politicians when the courts let criminal out again. Until more jails/detention centres the courts will let them go

I spoke to Harpic 2 years ago and mentioned the Olympics should be cancelled. The toady said he agreed, wonder why he hasn't had the b#lls to put it on the record?

TIME TO WRITE TO PHILLIP THOMPSON to ask about his position on the World Health Organisation (WHO) senate committee for the International Health Regulations (IHR) changes. Follow this link or write your own email/ phone. Ask him to publically declare his position and explain this position and what all these international rules will do to our Democracy. This can open up the control of a ONE WORLD GOVT that will be able to dictate global health directive and our govt wont be able to refuse. mysaymatters.com.au/

here we go again with Labor at the controls...useless tools...we need an early election to rid ourselves of Albasleezy and his pathetic crew.

These two ministers should lose their portfolios they’re hopeless especially O’ Neil she’s way out of her depth ..

It always amazes me how the thousands & thousands of refugees that leave countries to get a better life elsewhere are mostly men - youngish men🤔 Very few women or children cross borders🤔 Why is this???? Ulterior motives?? Don’t care about their women?? Not all - but certainly the greater majority🥲

Need to sack all labor government

Straight away remove all their phones, put them on a plane convincing them they are going to Canberra. Flight just happens to go back to Indonesia. Simple really.

He also needs to sack the High Court Judges who have put Australians in danger by ordering the release of illegal immigrants etc who were in detention.

The men come first then apply for a family reunion We are such a ridiculous country to allow this Who voted for this mob 😠

We’ve had much more than this boat since 2022. Lies lies and more lies

This is just typical behaviour for the ALP ..same every time they are in Government…it’s been their plan all along to flood Australia with people who have no intention of assimilating with us or even trying to ..and they are votes for the ALP…

The whole Labor government is showing itself to be incompetent and driven by left wing ideology.

Every fcuken day this imposter government fails. Who are they working for ? Not the Australian people on purpose I think.

Albo and Wong are the problem. They're not sacking anyone. This will get worse, way worse.

Typical. This always happens under weak Labor governments.

I wonder if they could take one passenger back with them

Time to use our Navy. Border Force Really!!!!!!! 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺

Bet they are all young men

So what now no detention for them straight on Centrelink benefits and public housing maybe the Supreme Court judges would like to put them up in their homes

Heads up this is the tenth boat since labour took government we know of imagine how many others have got through

Our incompetent government 🙄

Labor asleep at the wheel again. They have advertised that Australia is opened again.

It hasn’t taken long for the boats to start arriving, it was predicted this would happen under Labor, when you look at Labor leadership it’s not surprising

The labour government are showing their true colours not worrying about Australian people

Government is useless Time for change,, They have filled there pockets ,,now get them gone!

Here we go again! Labor cannot manage anything properly....

An invasion by stealth perhaps ?
