I'm sure everyone is aware of the disaster that is affecting much of Queensland at present. Much inconvenience for most of us, but huge loss for many whose homes and businesses have been inundated.
Reason for the thread is my utter disgust that Premier Anna Bligh, as a result of huge public pressure via the media, actually dragged herself back from holiday to swan about in a chopper today and declare open the "Flood Appeal", magnificently begun by the massive donation of the government of a whole $1 million!!!
How obscenely disgusting. This paltry sum is probably less than is being spent with the fireworks in Brisbane on New Year's Eve.
No wonder she has an approval rating of about 27%.
It wouldn't even be that much if the opposition had anything to recommend them.
