Hodgman attacks minority government

State Opposition Leader Will Hodgman has begun his reply to the state of the state address with an attack on minority governments. 

``There's a difference between staying in government and providing stable government,'' Mr Hodgman told Parliament a short time ago. ``The Labor Green experiment has failed.'' 

Promoting the Liberals ``plan for a brighter future'' launched earlier this year, Mr Hodgman vowed again to put the ``open for business sign'' up on the first day of a Liberal majority government. 

He criticised Premier Lara Giddings attempt to ``scare'' voters with comparisons to the Queensland Liberal Government. 

``Yesterday, trying to beat up a desperate scare, the Premier brought up the issue of trust,'' he said. ``So let's talk about trust.'' 

He said Tasmanians know his word is his bond and asked them to consider whether they trust Labor and the Greens who have ``sacked 287 nurses'' or the Liberals who have promised to spend an extra $76 million in elective surgery. 

``Who do you trust to grow the economy and create jobs?

Greens Leader Nick McKim will make his reply speech later this afternoon.
