Does LNP Gympie MP David Gibson deserve a third chance? @Qldaah #qldpol






In 2012, Campbell Newman chose MP for Gympie, David Gibson as his Police Minister. However, two weeks into the job he resigned.

The MSM’s NDIS: Make the frame, change the frame, WTFs the frame?






By Tony ‘The Geek’ Yegles May 4 2013 I was fascinated by the media’s framing of the NDIS debate this week. Within 48 hours it moved from reporting a naked tax grab by the Prime Minister, to a worthy initiative when Mr Abbott put the national interest ahead of his political interest. Update below May 15 […]
