George Christensen has again reveled on Facebook, his support for North Queensland to become it's own state. He says "I believe in decentralisation. Bringing government closer to the people so they have more control over it. We've got millions of people on the south-east corner of Queensland, the government closest to them - so we're always going to be hamstrung. I'm also a big believer in not having Canberra run everything. It's so far remote from cities like Mackay. A state government that was for, say, Gladstone and above it's going to be much more in touch with the needs and wants of all the people living in the area." Mr Christensen also said the State Government was "dominated by Brisbane interests".
