Our ABC gave Hanson a good run on Friday night. I can tell you as per the tv show 730, there are no environmental problems with the Great Barrier Reef. Pauline and those who live by Great Barrier Reef tourism told me so via our ABC. I thought it wasn't a great programme as there did not seem to be a direct rebuttal against Hanson's and the those with a vested interest propaganda. Scientific evidence is what I like. I am much more inclined to believe scientists who study the Great Barrier Reef.
This is Barnaby Joyce, who threatened to shoot the illegal immigrants into Australia, that is Johnny Depp's dogs Pistol and Boo. Depp made a crack about Joyce being a fat old politician before he most humbly apologised to our courts for his dogs' transgression. Well, Mr Depp. Joyce might be a fat old politician but have you looked at your own waistline of late? Depp, your arrogance knows no bounds and have spoilt my nice memories of you when you were but a youth.
Queensland does have a history of corpulent and unhealthy politicians, thinking of QLD Minister for Police and Horse Racing, Russ Hinze, who died at 72 before he could be tried for corruption, where he would no doubt have been found guilty. Queensland was not alone in being a corrupt state in Australia, but I venture it was the worst, (with NSW nipping at its heels in the corruption stakes) especially under Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen who ruled the state with as system of gerrymander that kept him in office from 1968 to 1987. As I recall, our ABC tv brought about the downfall of Petersen and Hinze with a couple of excellent 4 Corners investigations, one in particular called The Moonlight State. I watched them at the time and I was shocked.
No intention to tar Hinzes' grandaughter with any brush, but Kristy is quite well known by some celebrity followers. But not to me until very recently.
