Liberal-Lambie Coalition split as JLN votes against regional jobs 22 May 2024

It didn’t take long for the JLN to show their true colours, voting against regional jobs as the Liberal-Lambie coalition split in its first parliamentary test.

Before the election, Jeremy Rockliff told Tasmanians they shouldn’t risk having the JLN in a coalition government, saying it would “crash our economy, crash jobs, and crash our health system”.

It looks like he was on the money.

Rosalie Woodruff said it all when she said the Greens “100 per cent concurred” with the JLN’s comments regarding Tasmania’s key regional industries.

That comment alone should send a shudder down the spines of every business in Tasmania relying on the Liberal-Lambie Coalition for much needed certainty.
