Adam Brooks making things up again

  • Adam Brooks misleading Tasmanians on the Tarkine         
  • Labor does not support the area becoming a national park  
  • Malcolm Turnbull was the politician pushing for heritage status  

Liberal backbencher Adam Brooks is simply making things up when it comes to Labor’s position on the Tarkine.

“Labor does not support the creation of a Tarkine national park,” Labor Member for Braddon Shane Broad said.

“Adam Brooks obviously doesn’t have anything constructive to say, so he’s resorted to making things up.

“In fact, the politician most outspoken about placing restrictions on the Tarkine has been Liberal Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

“When he was Federal Environment Minister, Malcolm Turnbull wanted the whole Tarkine on the Australian Heritage Council’s priority list.

“In government, Labor successfully opposed Mr Turnbull’s attempt as we thought it went way too far.

“Adam Brooks should be directing his predictable scaremongering to the Prime Minister’s office, not Labor.”
