Next weekend’s LNP convention in Brisbane — where Malcolm Turnbull, LNP state Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls and party president Gary Spence are expected to deliver keynote speeches — will vote on 77 resolutions from branches in open sessions.
If passed, the resolutions are not binding on party policy but allow an insight into the views of the membership in some parts of Queensland and in some demographics.
The Young LNP, for instance, is pushing for “full privatisation” of the ABC and wants the convention to “condemn any public moneys being spent on altering traffic light symbols for ideological purposes”.
Hmmm, that rather swims against the PC tide. Might be a future in Australia for politicians who simply oppose PC.
