SHORTEN’S MAN WINDSOR

Tony Windsor should give up any pretence of being an Independent candidate and come clean on his allegiance to Labor according to the Nationals Senator for New South Wales John Williams.

Senator Williams said news reports that Tony Windsor’s campaign team were handing out Labor how-to-vote leaflets confirms what most people in the New England electorate know – he is glued on to Labor.

He said he propped up the Gillard government and stood idly by as the live exports trade was destroyed along with peoples’ lives.

He also supported the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal which was ready to put 35,000 independent truckies out of business before the Coalition government stepped in and put the Tribunal out of business.

TRUCKING ASSOCIATION APPLAUDS COALITION’S SUPPORT

The Australian Trucking Association has given the Coalition government top marks in the run-up to the Federal election.

The Nationals Senator for New South Wales John Williams, who drove a truck in the anti-R.S.R.T. rally in Canberra in April, says the Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has listed three important issues and judged the political parties response to them

He said on the key issues of abolishing the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal, practical measures to improve road safety and supporting stronger trucking businesses, the Coalition government has been given a perfect report card by the ATA.

Senator Williams said the ATA described the R.S.R.T, which was introduced by Labor with the support of Tony Windsor in 2012, as a disaster for small trucking businesses.

He said the Coalition government abolished the Tribunal earlier this year but Labor has pledged to reintroduce it to appease the Transport Workers Union.

ORANGE FLIES HIGH AS AIRPORT EXPANSION OPENS

Australia’s tyranny of distance has been further reduced in regional New South Wales today with the official opening of the Orange Airport Extension project.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the $21 million project would improve connectivity in the growing regional area.

“Major transport infrastructure improvements like this are critical to ensuring that regional and remote communities are provided with the strong transport connections they require now and into the future,” Minister Nash said.

“This project will cater for growth in air traffic over coming decades, while also improving the ability of local industry to support a fly-in-fly-out workforce to the nearby gold mine.

Tony Windsor astounds me.

17th June, 2017

Letter to the Editor

Dear Sir,

               Tony Windsor astounds me.

                Member for New England Barnaby Joyce announces APVMA will be moving to Armidale with 175 jobs and Tony Windsor complains.

                Barnaby announces $10 million to drought-proof Werris Creek, Quirindi and Willow Tree and Tony Windsor complains.

                $12 million announced by Barnaby to complete the upgrade of the Mount Lindesay Road near Tenterfield wasn’t enough – Tony Windsor complained again.

                 And guess who complained when Barnaby announced $8.5 million for the Northern Inland Centre of Excellence? 

                 It should occur to the people of New England that there is a stark difference between Barnaby Joyce and Tony Windsor.

                 One delivers, and the other acts like a petulant schoolboy.

Letter to the Editor

Northern Daily Leader

Dear Sir,

I cannot ignore the letter in the Northern Daily Leader on Saturday the 21st of May (No logic in asking to pay more for milk) written by a person from PETA. With the risk of giving this extreme organisation any publicity, I quote one sentence that sums up its thinking – “humans don’t need to drink cows’ milk, and we’re healthier if we don’t”. PETA wouldn’t admit that cows’ milk is universally promoted as an excellent source of calcium and a complete protein source. Whilst for various reasons some people, particularly children, cannot drink cows’ milk, the majority of people can and do which supports this $13 billion industry with a farm gate value of $4 billion. It is outrageous that at a time when our Victorian dairy farmers are in such a bind and families are facing financial ruin PETA would use the crisis to push its despised
