Katter's Ade warns of 'beast'

BOB Katter's Australian Party candidate Ade Larsen has issued a scathing criticism of the two major parties, claiming they have morphed into the "same political beast".

Born and bred on the Southern Downs, Larsen manages his family's cattle and sheep farm and his family is heavily involved in manufacturing and engineering.

He said he was "upset that people don't get representation" and he was aiming to give people a voice.

"Like many people, eight or nine years ago I realised there was something wrong with the major parties," Mr Larsen said.

Topping the list of his concerns is the CSG issue, which Mr Larsen said hadn't been properly addressed by either political party, especially in light of recent evidence pointing to its potential impact on water supplies.
