Queensland Daylight Saving Time

 

 


What you ‘Can Do’
given how Labor & the LNP are out of touch:

Like the majority of Queenslanders, ‘Can Do’ Campbell has mentioned that he’s supportive of Daylight Saving.

To read his backing of daylight saving:





In 2007 he said he’d like to see its reintroduction in Brisbane as he lobbied the State Government for its return soon after gaining administration in 2004.
 
His sudden backflip confirms Queenslanders being ignored must elect DS4SEQ candidates, not vote #1 for the majors.

The Problem:
It doesn’t matter which major party governs Queensland, even if the premier of the day is personally pro-daylight saving, no major party will necessarily implement it in Southeast Queensland unless there is a significantly high electoral risk (equal to that of rural Queensland seats as we speak) created by the way Southeast Queenslanders vote at the next State Election.
 
The LNP & ALP take the southeast’s votes for granted!

Want Daylight Saving in Southeast Queensland plus a say on who should govern the state?
Vote #1 for Daylight Saving for South East Queensland (DS4SEQ) and #2 for the Major Party (LNP or ALP) of your choice

Important things to consider when voting this way:

If your decision to vote #1 for DS4SEQ has them winning the seat, then you’ll have brought them a step closer to favourably negotiating a crucial preference deal that will make it too risky for the major parties to continue ignoring the majority of Queenslanders calling for Daylight Saving in the state’s south east – Queensland Government’s Survey Results Are Below

·If your DS4SEQ candidate doesn’t win a good enough percentage of the primary vote (in aid of them winning the seat), then your ballot paper will serve the purpose of not only showing how supportive you are for Daylight Saving in Southeast Queensland (despite DS4SEQ not winning), but you’ll be helping to determine which major party wins government.

Want Daylight Saving in Southeast Queensland but not interested in voting for the major parties?Vote #1 for Daylight Saving for Southeast Queensland (DS4SEQ) only

Important things to consider when voting this way:

· If your decision to vote #1 for DS4SEQ has them winning the seat, then as mentioned earlier, you’ll have brought them a step closer to favourably negotiating a crucial preference deal that will make it too risky for the major parties to continue ignoring the majority of Queenslanders calling for Daylight Saving in the state’s southeast.

· If your DS4SEQ candidate doesn’t win a good enough percentage of the primary vote (in aid of them winning the seat), then your ballot paper will only serve the purpose of showing how supportive you are for Daylight Saving in Southeast Queensland (despite DS4SEQ not winning), not count as a vote for a major party.

Important points for people who vote either one of the two above mentioned ways:

· If you’re supportive of Daylight Saving in Southeast Queensland but are sceptical of it being brought in, then there’s nothing to lose by voting either one of the above two mentioned ways you find best – You could be somewhat rather surprised to learn that you’ll have just helped have a DS4SEQ candidate elected in aid of forcing there to be a trial and a referendum on the issue of Daylight Saving in Southeast Queensland.

· Voting #1 for Daylight Saving in Southeast Queensland
(DS4SEQ) is the only way to help bring it on!


· Major party candidates who end up losing in the southeast could be left somewhat deservingly upset, thanks to this significant economic and lifestyle issue proving they’re not in the game of representing the very people who elected them with-in such a metropolitan region – As political editor Laurie Oakes once said, “Political careers can end in tears”

· In the end a major party will govern Queensland, no matter the outcome.
 


Australians can label Queensland’s major parties as going ‘backward’, as opposed to the majority of the state’s voters who want to go 'forward'.


In 2007 the Government’s Nielsen Daylight Saving Survey concluded that “regardless of which option is pursued (state-wide or regional Daylight Saving) it will be imperative to educate residents on the debate, logic and decision process”, but no, the major parties would rather use deception, apply political fear and spin, plus ignore all surveys indicating a majority of Queenslanders in favour of Daylight Saving in general (70%), a South East Queensland (SEQ) trial (64%), and a referendum (63%) –
Ignore them back! Don’t vote #1 for the major parties.

Like the 2010 Federal Election more are expected to vote #1 for QLD independents and minor parties, not the majors – Source: June’10 Galaxy Poll Results:

 LNP: 44%  | ALP: 32% | Greens:16% | Other Party: 8%  

Poll taken only hours after the Premier had hinted she’d not be going ahead with a trial or a referendum

How things have changed in Queensland:

In 2007 after the Nielsen Daylight Saving Survey, the State Government concluded, on the basis of brief telephone interviews with 600 poorly informed resident of SEQ, that there was not enough support for a regional Daylight Saving plan. The Government’s most recent survey (mentioned earlier) now proves that more than enough people do know of such a proven concept in order to give it a try.
 

Premier's Spin: Queenslanders are “Distressed”?


They should be if SEQ doesn’t get to take pressure off the state’s emergency services with the help of that region on Daylight Saving alone.

Government Stands Accused of Cheating
South East Queensland’s Online Voters.

The Daylight Saving for South East Queensland Party (DS4SEQ) has revealed that the data ‘cleansing’ of the Government’s online survey results included the removal of “multiple votes from the same computer”. so husband, wife & kids will only count as 1 vote. This is not genuine democracy at work!

Why we're urging the State Government to consider this proposal:

It’s the most popular proposal our subscribers prefer following the Premier’s advice that she’ll only consider Daylight Saving in South East Queensland

The above proposal will cater for the majority of Queenslanders calling for Daylight Saving who, according to State Government’s Nielsen Survey are the people of South East Queensland, a survey that interestingly found there to be 51 vs 38 state districts to be in favour.
 
  • The benefits for South East Queensland’s lifestyle and economy are too good to pass up.
  • Time is generally determined by smart east/west boundaries, not north/south ones.
  • Business benefits for the majority of Queenslanders being in line with their fellow Australians will more than make up for any minor time difference issue with the rest of the state. Source: The Australian Industry Group (AIG).
There’s proof the dual time concept works! Right now there are 16 states and provinces in the USA, Canada and New South Wales managing dual time arrangements well, including the sunny state of Florida where Miami (as if it was Cairns) has no issue with Pensacola (as if was Brisbane) being on a different time.

There are benefits in this for all Queenslanders: There are significant energy and road safety benefits for South East Queensland with Daylight Saving, which offer flow-on benefits to regional Queenslanders.

Note: We have also received suggestions that the rest of the state should be moved forward by half an hour in aid of (1) Halving any one-hour intrastate issue that Queensland state-wide businesses may be concerned about (2) It will conveniently reduce the number of Australian summer time zones down from 5 to 4 and (3) Queensland will never be behind South Australian time again.

If the South East Queensland proposal is successfully trialled then it could serve as a compromise between South East Queenslanders supporting Daylight Saving and the rest of the state remaining on their preferred Eastern Standard Time (EST)

QUT Professor Dulleck’s qualified advice to the Brisbane Times: “The full impact of the time change – positive or negative – would never be known without a trial, and dismissing it was a mistake”

Your Right to Know Queensland’s Nielsen Daylight Saving Survey Results

No political party will ever introduce state wide daylight saving to Queensland.

The only option is regional daylight saving.

However the Government most recent Nielsen research showed that 1 out of 3 Queenslanders under the age of 35 (and 1 out of 4 Queenslanders overall) had never heard about regional daylight saving.

Back then the research concluded that “there is a general lack of understanding by Queenslanders of the reasons for introducing two time zones”.

The Bligh Government then concluded, on the basis of brief telephone interviews with 600 poorly informed residents of south east Queensland, that there was not enough support for regional daylight saving.
