Labor’s personal attack on David Foster despicable and desperate

9 January 2017

Adam Brooks, Liberal Member for Braddon

Scott Bacon’s personal attack on Tasmanian icon David Foster is despicable and desperate.

Mr Foster is well known as a passionate Tasmanian who says what he thinks – as evidenced by the fact that in the past he has supported both myself, and Labor’s Brenton Best.

Just because Mr Foster is employed as a THA ambassador doesn’t mean his views are any less relevant.

Everyone is entitled to earn a living – or is Mr Bacon now going to give up his salary as an MP, and do the job for free?

I think the real reason Mr Bacon is so upset is because Mr Foster has belled the cat on Labor’s “we know best” pokies policy.

Unlike Labor, we believe that Tasmanians know best how to spend their own money, not Mr Bacon and Ms White.
