LABOR has released a new attack ad blaming Tim Nicholls for a trouble-plagued multibillion-dollar train contract and accusing him of costing Queenslanders jobs.
The ad, launched today along with a plea for donations to help it make it to television, attempts to shift blame for the new generation rollingstock issues on to the LNP Leader.
“Tim Nicholls and the LNP cut Queensland jobs and sent them overseas,” the ad states.
“Guess what, the overseas made trains don’t work properly. I guess you get what you pay for.”
