Yesterday saw what is being called the “greatest defeat “(or victory, if you favour that side!) in Queensland politics since…I don’t know. A long time.
But I promise this is NOT turning into a political blog! For one thing, I am easily bored by political debate. Besides, I don’t follow these particular gee-gees with much interest so can’t name them, their trainers, track records, betting odds…
But I did grab a pencil and make a very quick scrawl when I heard the new Member for the seat previously held by the Treasurer. One of the things she “absolutely wants to address” is public transport.
And this rang a silly bell as her new boss, incoming Premier Campbell Newman, was once Mayor of Brisbane and one of the things he spent public money on was a free public bicycle scheme. Laudable? Perhaps. But no one rode his bikes!
I don’t think John Kudelka has anything to worry about! If you click the image you should be able to read it.
