Gibson challenges Katter

MEMBER for Gympie David Gibson has fired back at jibes aimed at him by Bob Katter in Gympie on Wednesday.

"I would challenge Bob and anyone else to read my speech that I voted against those clauses within the bill that were unreasonable," Member for Gympie David Gibson said in response to comments made by Bob Katter .

"I did vote to make it illegal to point a laser at a pilot's eyes when making a landing."

"The great thing about democracy is anyone can run and I welcome Katter's candidate from outside Gympie running for the seat of Gympie."

Mr Gibson said when he heard a Gympie man was running for Katter's Australian Party for the seat of Bundaberg, he "thought there must be two very good local candidates" and was surprised when the Gympie candidate came from the Nicklin electorate.
