He talked about "accessible, quality services" (in a budget that increases cost of living) and chose not to mention his government’s privatisation agenda in his delivery.

Campbell Newman and Lawrence Springborg are headed down the dangerous road of privatisation and they are starting with our valuable health and hospital services.
