A week is a long time in politics

If you thought Jason O'Brien's speech in Port on Sunday was juicy, then it pails into insignificance with the Howard Beatie bitch slapping contest emerging.

This is going to be a frosty date but something well worth the ride, no matter on what side of the policical fence, you sit.

Courier Mail reports

QUEENSLAND may vote on the council mergers and federal election on the same day after a daring intervention by Prime Minister John Howard.

Presenting himself as the saviour of Queensland democracy, Mr Howard promised to give people the vote denied by Premier Peter Beattie on the controversial amalgamations.
"The Beattie Government is ripping the heart of local democracy," Mr Howard said in Question Time yesterday.

"We will force the Queensland Government to consult the people."
