Can do QLD
Jan 25th, 2012 at 11:16am
 
This is the face of the next Premier of Queensland. He instills a lot more confidence than the encumbent.

Instills confidence in the same way that fortune tellers, used car salesmen and carnies do.

The word "smarmy" instantly springs to mind whenever Mr Newman appears on TV.

Time will tell. He made a big difference to Brisbane. particularly from an environmental standpoint. He came across as fairly modest and business-like, never blowing his own trumpet, unlike some.  I think he'll do well myself, but who knows?

No idea. That was just my personal opinion based upon a few TV appearances and the occasional news article.

I won't be bothering to vote again, so for all I care let him be premier and see how he goes.

Labor have been in for too long anyway. I'd rather we skipped the whole election process and just swapped teams every 8 years. Let them get on with the job without pandering to both the media and the great unwashed.

What happens if he fails to win his seat?
Does the Premier actually have to be part of the parliament?
It seems the Opp Leader doesn't.

I hope so too. I've got a good feeling, but I won't extend that to hat eating guarantees Smiley

Im still laughing @ the guy in my area. Cameron Dick was his name. He had signs everywhere so you could see them from your car. What you could see was DICK in nice big letters. And he got votes! LOL

"Can do" has already shown some good initiatives. Disabled the Green schemes and got rid of corporate seats for politicians at stadiums.

He has a military and business background. His feet are firmly on the ground then. Contrarily, Labor is full of academics and trade unionists who would know sh*t when it came to business and discipline.
