I am saddened and embarrassed that a parliamentary colleague from North Queensland could bring this area into such derision as Mr Katter has done with his offensive and childish advertisement which brings Australian political standards to a new low.
Mr Katter’s video advertisement seems to encourage murder and gun violence to promote his strange views on a serious policy issue.
Mr Katter, regrettably, confuses ‘selling’ Australia with encouraging foreign investment which, since European settlement, has created jobs and wealth for Australians particularly in rural Australia.
The timing and insensitivity of this rubbish will reinforce the view that Mr Katter is no longer capable of representing the people of Kennedy.
Many people have approached me questioning Mr Katter’s judgment and fitness as a parliamentary representative, and this latest indiscretion will reinforce that view.
