The fledgling statewide lobby group QLGRA, came out in force to support ratepayers in Moreton Bay in their campaign for fair chance at a referendum to de-amalgamate. The local petition gathering process was road-blocked by the inaction of Scott Driscoll MP in the de-amalgamation process laid down by LNP government thus preventing a valid application from these ratepayers. They sought permission to have extra time to gather signatures and were able to gather over 12 thousand. The local Government Minister continues to refuse them the opportunity to put this issue to referendum.

This is how well Qld was represented prior to the undemocratic 2008 forced amalgamations which took away half of our truly local Councils!
