A Black Friday for Opposition Spin - David Llewellyn, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

A Black Friday for Opposition Spin - David Llewellyn, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

Deputy Premier David Llewellyn today called on Peg Putt to immediately apologise to the Police Commissioner or stand down as Greens Leader.

“We know both opposition parties have been waging a tag team campaign against the Premier in an effort to avoid having their own failings scrutinised, but today the Greens have gone too far.

“For Peg Putt to question the integrity of the Police Commissioner, just shows how far this carping and disastrous person will go.

“To attack the State’s Senior Law Enforcement officer is nothing short of a disgrace and Peg Putt should stand down immediately.

“The Police Commissioner told Peg Putt that there was nothing to investigate in this matter, not liking the umpires decision she attacked the man.

On radio this morning Peg Putt said about the Commissioner’s findings – “I am not at all satisfied with his responses, so of course it has to go to the DPP.”

“The Commissioner is an outstanding Police Officer and for Ms Putt to question his response like this is a diabolical action.

“I call on the Media to wise up to the fact that the Liberals and Greens are working together because they are both desperate to do anything but debate real issues.

“Rene Hidding is grasping at straws when he talks about a breach of the Code of Conduct.

“I bet Mr Hidding’s Spin Doctors are hard at work trying to find ways to keep this story running over the weekend as well.

“Mr Hidding has no plan or vision for Tasmania or he would be outlining it instead of all this constant whinging.

“Mr Hidding would be better off spending his time explaining to Tasmanians how he will pay for his hundreds of millions in unfunded promises.

“Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) figures released yesterday showed that more Tasmanians are in the workforce than at any other time in our history.

“Since coming to office the Tasmanian Labor Government has created around 29,100 jobs for Tasmanians, that’s almost 60% of all the jobs on the North West Coast.

“But of course no one from the opposition wants to debate jobs for Tasmanians or the economy because they don’t have a leg to stand on,” Mr Llewellyn said.
