    I don’t think we need to worry too much about what’s happening in the Qld. gov. One senion minister referred to Flegg’s failure to accurately fill in the lobbying register as a distraction. No doubt the putting in the son of another minister into a senior position in the Transport Dept. is viewed in a similar light.

    I thought the ABC’s China correspondent’s efforts on “Andrea Yu” was pathetic. So she didn’t ask hard questions at the Chinese Communist Party forum? Surprise, surprise. It didn’t require a whole piece on an ABC current affairs program for us to know she was selected to ask soft questions. Why harangue her for doing her job? If it was possible for hard news journos to stand up and ask tough, probing questions, surely we would have seen O’Donnell and others do just that. They didn’t.
