Goss supports Fitzgerald’s claims

2 August, 2009

Wayne Goss, a former Premier of Queensland, appears to support the concern voiced by Tony Fitzgerald that Queensland is slipping back into waters that are murky. The ABC reports that Mr. Goss links the length of time Labor has been in office with the jailing of former ministers, new police corruption and controversial lobbying practices.

Mr. Goss stated:

“That’s a clear sign of a worrying culture. Sure, the system worked but there’s a culture there that needs to be tackled.”

There is truth in the notion that:

“The longer any side of politics is in power the more risk there is that cobwebs will settle.”

It is unfortunate that for the last eleven years there has not been a viable nor credible opposition in Queensland and this does not look likely to change on the short term.

The Sunday Mail/Galaxy Poll here. Will this concern survive the ‘issue attention cycle’?

Update. More at The Poll Bludger.
