Assets sale an Ipswich problem

LEADER of the Opposition John-Paul Langbroek made his first official visit to Ipswich on Thursday, to talk with locals about what the hefty fuel hike and sale of Queensland assets meant.

After a stroll through Riverlink shopping centre, chatting with willing residents, Mr Langbroek found himself deep in Labor territory as he conducted a media conference at Browns Park.

Mr Langbroek had a positive outlook about his role as leader of the struggling LNP.

“You could say I am still fairly unknown, so that's what this trip is all about,” Mr Langbroek said.

“Selling off Queensland assets, a fuel hike and privatising assets are the real problems for Ipswich.”

Member for Lockyer Ian Rickuss accompanied Mr Langbroek during his trip.“It was a good chance for Mr Langbroek to get around the rural and regional parts of Queensland,” Mr Rickuss said.

Dana Stevens and her three children met Mr Langbroek and spoke about school holidays.

“It is good to see him here in Ipswich because I think the future is a growing concern,” Mrs Stevens said.
