LNP has 'set new low' for integrity, says Tony Fitzgerald

ANTI-CORRUPTION figurehead Tony Fitzgerald has told ABC's 7.30 that the Newman government "set a new low standard" for the integrity and fairness of Queensland's governance.

A little over 48 hours ahead of the state election, Mr Fitzgerald said he held genuine concerns about the way in which constituents and the political process had been regarded by successive premiers.

"I thought that Wayne Goss's period in office...was the high point," he said.

"I'd say that throughout that period from [Rob] Borbidge, [Peter] Beattie and then Anna Bligh - although I didn't watch it very closely - I'd say there's been a constant movement away bit-by-bit to the old style politics where the winner takes all."

"As Goss had set a new high standard, they [the current LNP] probably set a new low standard."
