Serious questions are starting to emerge about Rebecca White’s lack of leadership and policy on significant policy issues.
For example, Labor are all over the shop on TasWater, unable to say if they’d roll back our take-over if elected.
Last week, a Labor MP and a Labor candidate both called for pokies to be banned apparently with the agreement of Ms White and yesterday we saw a dramatic backflip on drugs policy, with Josh Willie all but calling for drugs to be decriminalised.
He told media yesterday that: “We obviously think that we can’t keep doing the same thing.”
What does Ms White stand for?
What is her policy on drugs?
Does she agree with Mr Willie that drugs should be decriminalised?
Does she really think that normalising drug use is the best way to tackle the problem?
This is all evidence of Ms White’s lack of experience – she doesn’t know what she stands for, and if elected would be unable to stand up to powerful voices such as the unions, and the Greens.
