What can be said about someone who acts like he was born to rule. Well, as the child of two federal ministers (son of Kevin Newman, former Member for Bass and Federal Minister, and Jocelyn Newman, former Senator and Federal Minister) he probably feels entitled to rule over the little people. After all, the only good thing about commoners is they pay tax. He claims to want to represent Ashgrove, yet he doesn’t even want to live there. Way to represent.
Not actually in this election, though absent enough from Canberra that voters might think so. You can vote for his son, though, if you live in Mount Isa, his son, Rob Katter. It could be the beginning of a beautiful political dynasty, move over North Koreas Dear Leader.
Thousands of letters were sent to residents of Ashgrove, from a group that called itself
Straddie Mothers warning of what would happen if Labor closed down the sandmining on North Stradbroke Island.
The letters were apparently the work of Sibelco Australia, without lodging its interest with the Queensland Electoral Commission
Are Liberal National politicians in Queensland really referring to Anna Bligh as
Anna Bligh-ar. One track minds. And usually a form of misdirection, when the Conservatives and Neo-Cons accuse you of something, there is a very good chance that is what are they themselves are up to.
And a question many have wondered: how long before LNP completely fracks QLD?
