After six days on the road in North Queensland, Australian Conservatives Federal Communications Director Lyle Shelton has only just begun his mission to stamp out political correctness and put jobs and coal back on the agenda.
With speaking engagements in Bundaberg, Townsville, Cairns, Mackay, Gladstone and Rockhampton the aim of the tour was to connect with local Australian Conservatives Supporter Groups to, “reinforce support for Queensland jobs and the Queensland coal industry and talk to locals concerned with the drift of conservative politics”.
Mr Shelton also discussed the Australian Conservatives’ plans for the next federal election where the party hopes to secure a Senate seat.
Relying on North Queensland's already conservative nature, Mr Shelton said, they were tapping into a deep concern for freedom of speech and political correctness.
"I want to encourage our local supporter groups and to work with them to build a new political movement for this nation - a new conservative movement,” Mr Shelton said.
"Electricity prices have gone through the roof thanks to these renewables that can't make base-load power. We should be putting reliable power into the grid using the resources that we've got, but we've signed on to this climate change ideology.”
The party is also registering to become a State Political Party to be eligible to contest future Queensland elections.
