http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/s...2-3102,00.htmlAUSTRALIA'S most famous historian, Geoffrey Blainey, has reignited the debate for statehood for North Queensland, saying it would be "absurd" not to.
This debate needs to take place.
Folk in NQ are sick and tired of supporting the southeast corner of Queensland with their bogans, toffs and dole bludgers.
NQ is the economic heart of the eastern seaboard and would fare as well as Western Australia if it had statehood.
Let all fair minded women and men support statehood for NQ.
Even the poor old Storm victims got screwed, in a majority in NQ, SICAG was based somewhere in the Sunshine Coast, a haven for get rich quick real estate agents and financial planners.
Let the real wealth of this country be developed by those who make it, miners, farmers and workers in NQ, rather than those muppets in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
