SHOPPERS on the streets of Jimboomba were more concerned with the daily shop and getting the kids home from school than a Liberal leadership challenge and who might be the next Prime Minister of Australia today, August 23, at 3.30pm.
Mum Natasha Swatton, snapped with her children Denwarah, 14, Isabella, 10, Contessa. 9 and Hunter, 7, liked Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull for leader for the same reasons she “liked Ruddie (former Labor prime minister Kevin Rudd) as Labor leader too.
“He just seems fair,” she said.
“I like him (Turnbull). I like what he wants to do with bringing the energy prices down. This Peter Dutton … I don’t know much about him. They say he’s not for immigration.”
Mum Wendy Eldred, of Woodhill, snapped with her children Emily and Thomas, said she was sick of all the changes.
“I’m sick of them changing their minds all the time,” she said.
“They should just stick with somebody. Malcolm Turnbull is alright. I don’t think he’s any worse then any of the others we’ve been through.”
Terry Byrn did not have an opinion on who should be prime minister: “They’re all tarred with the same brush.”
The National Servicemen’s Association of Australia Queensland Incorporated’s Shirley and Murray Neuendorf, of Beaudesert and Graham Bird, of Greenbank were fundraising ahead of the four-day state conference in Beaudesert on October 11 to 14.
Mrs Neuendorf: “I just wish they’d let let elected representatives get on with the jobs they were elected to do.”
Mr Neuendorf: “Absolutely.”
Mr Bird: “And as for the the opposition – well, they’re in opposition to everything. That really annoys me.”
