But should it be? Joining me now is Jason Furze for South East Queensland Party. from the Daylight Saving Bob Katter. And Independent Member for Kennedy Good morning to you both. Jason, we'll start with you. introduced in Queensland? Why do you want daylight saving

Well, we actually advocate daylight

saving for south-east Queensland

only. We understand we recognise

that those who live in like Mr

Katter who live in the north and

west of St Kilda, do not want

daylight safing but what he also has

to understand, is that the

residents, the majority of residents

in south-east in south-east St

in south-east Queensland would love

the south-east St daylight saving tflt comes down to

the south-east

Brisbane but the Gold Coast, the south-east quflders, not only

Sunshine Coast, that's been proven Brisbane but the Gold Coast, the

a million of us that live north of

Rockhampton. But, give us a separate

state but if you don't give us a

separate state, we will suffer the

same problems that you suffer down

alone. OK. Sorry, to join the

southern states. We do have this

debate every 6 months, so, I am

it will continue. Jason, Bob, thank debate every 6 months, so, I am sure

you very much for talking to us.
