Tit for tat


TASMANIA’S politicians have been expressing an unusually high degree of concern for each other’s safety in recent weeks. In Parliament on June 19 Labor Braddon backbencher Bryan Green took two opportunities to allege that Lyons Greens infrastructure spokesman Tim Morris had ventured onto a railway line without permission and without wearing appropriate high-visibility safety clothing.

This week Mr Morris – New Norfolk resident and former Derwent Valley mayor – released a photograph of Infrastructure Minister Graeme Sturges posing in front of heavy machinery on a worksite on Maydena’s main road.

“Two weeks before I raised my concerns in Estimates regarding the Jordan River Rail Bridge and was criticised for failing to wear safety equipment on a vacant railway track, Minister Sturges visited Maydena to inspect the State-funded Mainstreet Makeover and posed for a photo on an active worksite without wearing work boots, a hard-hat or hi-visibility vest,” Mr Morris said. PHOTO: Faces have been pixellated to preserve the privacy of those photographed with Mr Sturges.
