Isn't it just great to have a Premier intent on talking-down our State? Does he not realise you can talk yourself into recession by simply fear-mongering? I cannot believe the rubbish he's coming out with. Eurpoe is in genuine strife..Queensland is not. Premier Newman seems intent on filling the population with fear and making everyone's lives a misery. It will come back to bite him.
