Campbell Newman asked to resign from the LNP

Former Queensland Premier Campbell Newman has been told to resign from the Liberal National Party. Mr Newman told Sky News he received a letter from the party suggesting his role as a commentator was inconsistent with being a member of the LNP. “It goes on to suggest that I resign and then wishes me well for the future,” he said. “It’s quite an interesting letter.” Mr Newman said he had written back to seek information about the nature of the complaints along with the fact he has no intention to resign. “I just say this, healthy democratic process is about debate, it is about openness,” Mr Newman said. The former premier went on to criticise new LNP leader Deb Frecklington and said she did not like his advice. “Two years ago Deb Frecklington talked to me and said how do you think we’re going ... and I said, Deb, not doing well and you’re going to lose the next election if you keep going this way,” he said. “Well she didn’t like the advice then and I don’t imagine she’s going to pick up the phone and ask for my advice now.” On Wednesday Ms Frecklington spoke on the Sunshine Coast and said her door was always open for anyone to chat with her, anytime. “In relation to my parliamentary team or our parliamentary performance those matters really are a matter for the LNP themselves,” she said. Comment has been sought from the LNP.
