February 3rd, 2012 · No Comments · Politics, Quotes, The Law

“We are a federation and I support a federation but we would operate much more effectively and efficiently and really surge ahead if we were on our own.”

“We will work with [Bob Hawke] provided he is working in Queensland’s interests. If he attempts to interfere in any shape or form, then it’s on his head. And if he’s so unsure of himself and so far committed to the communists around his shoulders and breathing down his neck, then God help Australia.”

“What is good for Queensland is good for Australia.”

“I don’t mind being called the Flying Peanut. I think this is unique: in each of the three Government aircraft, we’ve gone more than the distance from here to the moon.”

“I really worry about Queensland. I lose a lot of sleep because I don’t know what will happen when I go.”
