ZeroGen Farce Should Be Final Straw For ‘Minister For Waste’

The State Opposition is calling for long term Labor Minister Stephen Robertson to be dumped following revelations $100 Million of Queensland Taxpayers’ Dollars has been wasted on the ZeroGen Clean Coal Project.

State Opposition and LNP Leader John-Paul Langbroek said the ZeroGen Bungle was another example of Poor Planning and Wasted dollars occurring on Stephen Robertson’s watch.

“The Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy Stephen Robertson is fast becoming known as the Minister for Waste. Everything he touches turns into a disaster.” Mr. Langbroek said.


“Under Stephen Robertson, a $1.2 Billion Desalination Plant has been mothballed, a $2.5 Billion Recycled Water Pipeline is barely used and now $100 Million has been blown on a Clean Coal Project.”

“When is Premier Anna Bligh going to reshuffle her Cabinet and get rid of long term dud Ministers like Stephen Robertson, Paul Lucas and Robert Schwarten who keep wasting taxpayers’ money?” Mr. Langbroek asked.

“It’s only Anna Bligh’s fear of getting rolled as Labor Leader that is keeping these serial underperformers in Cabinet.” Mr. Langbroek said.
