[Forum] The Member for Robertson’s full-page advertisement in edition 489 is a major turnaround from her election campaign in May 2019.

A short list of probable reasons for this change are the worst fire season on record, the worst air pollution on the planet, a downturn in the economy and Zali Steggall’s Climate Change Act.

Is the purpose of the advertisement to counter Steggall’s Private Member’s Bill on climate change and the proposed conscience vote.

The question for the Member for Robertson is whether the advertisement about increased climate change action or reduced climate change action.

We will know the answer later this month, if not before the big day on March 23.

Lucy Wicks will still be the focus of attention in Robertson regardless of the vote.

Will she survive until the next election?

All the above need to be considered in conjunction with the latest news on the coronavirus.

Times have definitely changed.
