CRUNCH time for voters is just around the corner, but many are still unsure which box will head their ballot.
Last week Member for Pumicestone Carryn Sullivan confused voters with an eight-page liftout that targeted a handful of election issues, including a claim that suggested Bribie Island was on the map for a desalination plant under an LNP leadership.
Other claims involved vegetation, development and marine park zoning.
Mrs Sullivan said Mr Newman's comments that there were still some things that would have to be built to ensure long-term water supply security left her "dismayed and angry".
Mrs Sullivan said the LNP water policy had Bribie as the first priority for a desalination plant. She said Mr Newman, speaking in a radio program, had not ruled out desalination plants or other dams to ensure water supply security.
However LNP leader Campbell Newman said claims by Mrs Sullivan that an LNP government would build a desalination plant on Bribie Island were rubbish.
"Mrs Sullivan has no record of achievement to run on, so has to resort to total fabrications," he said.
Pumicestone candidate Lisa France and Shadow Environment Minister and Member for Glasshouse Andrew Powell also backed this with a firm "no" to desalination.
"There will not be a desalination plant on Bribie Island under an LNP government," Ms France said.
Mr Powell listed the desalination failure at Tugun on the Gold Coast as a good reason against desalination on Bribie.
"I'm tired of the mud-sling style campaigning by a tired Labor member.
"These false claims are just another attempt to try to detract attention from Labor's track record of government over the years."
Mrs Sullivan also ruled out desal for Bribie if re-elected.
"Over my dead body; there will be no desal for Bribie," she said.
Premier Anna Bligh confirmed that a re-elected Bligh Labor government would not build a desalination plant on Bribie.
Ms France also addressed Mrs Sullivan's claims in the liftout about fishing, national parks and vegetation conservation.
"To set the record straight, there will not be an expansion of green zones in Pumicestone Passage, there will not be a reintroduction of commercial fishing in Pumicestone Passage, there will not be development of Bribie Island's national parks for high-rise units or housing and there will be no relaxation of vegetation conservation legislation under an LNP government," Ms France said.
Ms France said she refused to be distracted by Labor's lies.
"There are too many important issues locals want to talk about," she said.
Do you believe the claims or trust the Bribie desal issue is dead and buried?
