Liberals focus on the big issues while Labor copies Green policies

The Hodgman Government is focused on the issues that affect Tasmanians, such as the cost of living, health and education.

In stark contrast, Labor has announced that it is adopting another one of the Greens’ policies, this time a charter of rights.  This is just further proof that Labor would do another deal with the Greens if given the chance.

Over the past two days, we have outlined how a majority Hodgman Liberal Government will continue to improve our education system by building new schools at Penguin and Sorell and by extending all high schools to include years 11 and 12.

In contrast, this latest Labor-Green policy will cost around a million dollars per year on Labor’s own estimates, and won’t do anything to reduce the cost of living, improve the health system or help young people get the education they deserve.
