Shocker day for Rockliff with no justification on stadium

Tasmanian Labor

Jeremy Rockliff
embarrassed himself in question time today, failing to answer basic questions
and refusing to say the word ‘stadium’ for over an hour.

This odd
display from the struggling Premier highlights the desperate situation the
Liberal Government has put itself in.

Jeremy Rockliff
and his Government’s back is now firmly against the wall as it was revealed
that there is not even a business case for the new stadium at Macquarie Point.

Tasmanians are struggling
with the cost of living, health and housing and this Liberal Government is
prioritising a $750 million stadium in Hobart with no real justification.

Not even
Liberal Party supporters agree with the Government’s position, with some
calling it “madness” and Federal Bass MP Bridget Archer said Tasmanian
taxpayers should not have to fund it.

The Government
had an opportunity today to explain the detail behind its new stadium ahead of
the priorities of Tasmanians. Instead, it shut down debate after offering just
a one-minute defence.
