I think most people here know by now how much I totally hate Gizzard and Blight but by the same token I can recognise the inner strength of one of them. Gizzard hasn't got any and is propped up by so many people there is no such thing as "the real Julia" anymore - except for the screaming banshee hard as nails witch of a bitch during Question Time. She's a fake of a fake and she can't even do a good job of being a fake - and can't fake compassion convincingly either.

Blight on the other hand does have some sort of personality and might even be a 'nice' person in real life, but she is 'self' absorbed,'self' motivated,'self' interested' and only looking out for her 'self' and her career... and she's a good actress... and that's what makes her strong.

Yeah, she did a good "job" during the floods (she had excellent back-up) and that's just what she's getting paid for, but what's happened since? People in the flooded areas are still living in tents and are still waiting for promised money WHICH WAS DONATED BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC to be doled out to them for IMMEDIATE relief.

So what's happening with the money donated? My bet is the gov invested it to get the interest and will leave it invested as long as it can to earn 'secret' money off the donations.

People forget it's taxpayers money which is used to fly her all over the place AND to Brisbane for her photo-shoot, and back to Cairns.

I'll explain further. The "good job" I'm talking about was the delivering of information as it came to hand, in following expert advice and organising the relevant organisations needed to help, and handling the situation with maturity and (possibly real) compassion (all without a script) which Gizzard couldn't summon up if she had a magic wand or super powers.

She also did a "good job" of being instrumental in the decision to NOT reduce the level of dam water when it mattered, which allowed a deeper level of flooding later on. But she was following so called 'expert' advice then also.

She's just been on TV saying she's "disappointed at the lack of speed with which the donation money has been delivered" and she's going to "get on top of that situation asap".

Too late Anna!!!

She should have used a much stronger word than "disappointed" because it was HER appeal and SHE should have organised the delivery a lot sooner.

She's just another shining example of Labour's complete ineptitude to handle money no matter where it comes from!

One month before the flood Anna said Brisbane was flood proof. Pity they kept the water level in the dam so high, in fear of it never raining again. They must think people have short memories.
The government are scared of allowing the dam to do what it was designed to...
There are two spillways pointing in different directions thus allowing peak water storage and escape of natural spill .
Somebody wanted to lower the water level by a large drop

Every comment you read it is Brisbane, Brisbane, and more Brisbane, what about the rest of Queenslans? I would like every Pollie to drive from Bris. to Cairns on the pot holed Bruce Highway, will they no, they fly everywhere. Just wait till the idiots pass the law that triple trailers can use it. That will at least double the head ons.

When I'm not logged on Topix shows my location as Brisbane, and I live much further north than that.

The highway from Rockhampton to Cairns is a big joke and western roads are disgusting, third world standard.

Politicians brains don't travel any further than Brisbane and it's only since the coal industry has become very lucrative for them that any notice is being taken of North Queensland now.

AND, it's on the grapevine that the Brisbane flood victims are being well looked after while the north and west ones are well and truly missing out.

Speaks for itself doesn't it???

When I caught Blight the other night apologizing on TV for not spending I thought exactly the same thing, about gaining interest on a deposit. They have done it before if I remember rightly.

I don't like Anna Bligh for the fact that she hasn't done a good job governing Queensland not because of her gender.
