Newman in Queensland
Not much commentary here. I only lived in Queensland for a year in the eighties and have a couple of ex-brothers-in-law living on the Sunshine Coast; neither of whom I have any contact with.
I liked Anna Bligh and thought she showed the best leadership of anyone in a natural disaster in living memory. Judging by that alone, the resounding defeat is a 'kick in the chops'. But Qld have had oppressive conservative governments before so let's see if Campbell Newman can tear them a new one.
