Shorten wants to follow Palaszczuk’s lead
BILL Shorten is hoping to follow Annastacia Palaszczuk's lead and topple a first-term government.
Speaking at the Queensland Labor Party conference in Brisbane on Sunday, Mr Shorten said he aimed to make Tony Abbott a one-term Prime Minister, as Campbell Newman had been made a one-term premier.
"Annastacia, you and your team didn't just try to claw back some ground, you didn't run on the platform of being and building a bigger Opposition. You sought government," he said.
"We are not offering ourselves to the people of Australia as a party of protest. We are not aiming to chip a bit of paint off Mr Abbott. We are in this to win it."
Mr Shorten said the Labor Party would target growing regional unemployment at the next election.
