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.''

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