The ABC news this evening disclosed that, despite being one of the wealthiest men in Queensland, aspiring Liberal Leader, Dr Bruce Flegg is in receipt of a Disability Pension from the government, or in other words, from his fellow tax payers, many of whom as we all know are struggling to survive.
He has a huge stock portfolio and owns a string of medical centres throughout Qld. He was questioned today about the conflict of interest regarding his stock portfolio and a position where he would have to make decisions about various Queensland businesses. He replied that he didn't really think there was any conflict (!) but if there were, then he would put them in some sort of trust structure. i.e. no longer have his name attached to them.
I frankly can't believe not only the total lack of morality in this man taking a Disability Pension in the face of his very considerable wealth, but even more his incredible stupidity in thinking (a) it wouldn't come out, and (b) if it did come out it wouldn't matter!
I don't want to vote for the Beattie government after their multiple stuff-ups, but certainly won't be voting for this cretin.
