Letter to the Editor
Quite frankly one must not miss the comedy relief in any election campaign; take for example Campbell Newman’s campaign visit to Townsville last week.
Campbell’s day began with a jog down part of Townsville’s Strand. Whilst on this jog he was approached by a fellow jogger and member of the public who quite legitimately asked him a question concerning the return of WorkChoices, for I assume, the Queensland public service. Well the comedy that followed was unbelievable, this fellow jogger was accused of being a Labor Party stooge (which he was not) and a subversive (which he was not) and other unmentionables just for asking a question?
One may have thought that an Opposition Leader? Would welcome questions so he could clarify his parties position on particular issues, instead we had Campbell Newman scurrying back to Brisbane with his tail firmly planted between his legs the very same day lol! It is a good thing that he did not stick around to be asked by journalists (not sure if they are the enemy also) concerning all this funding he is promising for the north. I assume journalists would want to know either where the extra revenue will come from to fund the promised projects or what government services he plans to cut, where, and by how much.
He’s a funny little fellow, he reminds me of a jack in a box, keeps popping up here and there buts answers no questions lol!
