Deborah Knight rips into politicians over ‘ploy’ behind Great Barrier Reef investment
Deborah Knight has called out political parties for concealing the real reason they’re investing in the Great Barrier Reef.
The federal government is set to make its largest-ever investment in saving the Great Barrier Reef, an additional $1 billion.
While Labor is promising $160,00 million to help the reef.
“I just don’t know how stupid politicians think we actually are,” Deborah said, “but it’s no coincidence pollies of both stripes are showing a keen interest in the Great Barrier Reef.
“Let’s call it for what it is! It’s a push to win votes.”
