Northern Territory Shadow Minister for Central Australia Matt Conlan
End Labor Lies On August 25
Victor P Taffa
The Henderson Labor Government is racking up lies at a record rate.
Member for Greatorex, Matt Conlan, said the Henderson Government’s desperation to cling to power has seen it plummet new lows during the election campaign.
“I suspect this is just the beginning and there will be more to come over the next nine days.” Mr. Conlan said.
“Henderson Labor’s default position is to deceive and fudge the truth.”
“Delia Lawrie’s Tennant Creek Red Rooster building certification cover-up, Rob Knight’s denial about SIHIP failings, Marion Scrymgour’s wax-gate deception and untruths surrounding the sacking of an education CEO, Kon Vatskalis’ Montara buck-pass and the failure to prosecute over the Mataranka cattle deaths point to a Government with scant regard for honesty, openness and accountability.”
“But the deceit has hit new lows during the election campaign, with the Chief Minister’s lies about senior staff threatening the NT News with legal action just the tip of the iceberg.” Mr. Conlan said.
“His fear campaign surrounding the Country Liberals is based on hysterical fabrications including public servant sackings, bulldozing East Point, election spending and fish fingers.”
“In addition the Member for Daly, Rob Knight, has been reported to the Northern Territory Election Commission for misrepresenting Indigenous leaders and Labor has been busted branding its website as the City of Palmerston.”
“Territorians have a choice next week between the Country Liberals 5-point plan and commitment to accountability and a tired, desperate, incompetent Labor Government and more of the same.” Mr. Conlan said.
