Put up or shut up, George

George Christensen’s latest round of empty threats to walk away from the Government are nothing more than hot air.

George Christensen doesn’t have the guts to stand up to Malcolm Turnbull, he proved that in the last sitting week when he voted against a Royal Commission into the big banks, despite his promise to cross the floor.

The last time he threatened to walk away from the Government was over the backpacker tax, but he still put Canberra games ahead of struggling farmers and regional tourism operators and voted with Malcolm Turnbull for a toxic backpackers tax.

George says one thing in Mackay and does another in Canberra, and the people of North Queensland deserve better.

We’ve heard it all before, George.

It’s time to put up or shut up.
