NAIF DELAYS PROVE TURNBULL IS OUT OF TOUCH WITH CENTRAL AND NORTH QLD

More than two years after the LNP announced the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF), not a single cent has been spent job generating projects.

Instead of delivering infrastructure projects for the north – Turnbull has made the choice to blow more than half a million dollars on executive salaries and travel perks for board members.

The NAIF keeps saying that funding is about to be announced but an announcement never comes.

What’s the hold up?

Turnbull is out of touch with what North and Central Queensland needs.

Instead of taunting Queenslanders, Turnbull and the LNP should announce the funding.

There are plenty of infrastructure projects that need to be funded. Malcolm Turnbull should stop delaying and start delivering.
