Bruce Flegg 'unfit' for position

Questions of confidence have been raised in Housing Minister Bruce Flegg’s office as a sacked Senior Media Advisor alleged that Dr Flegg was unfit to be a Minister in the State Government. Greg speaks to 4BC reporter  Jamie McKinnell and Steve Wardill from News about the latest controversy to envelope the State Government.

 

A sacked media officer says he'll unveil documents before parliament on Tuesday to prove Queensland's Housing Minister Bruce Flegg is unfit for his senior position.

Dr Flegg sacked his senior media officer Graeme Hallett on Monday, only days after firing his chief-of-staff Fraser Stephen.

Both men have been working with Dr Flegg since the Liberal National Party won the Queensland election in March.

It's also believed Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek simultaneously dismissed his personal assistant Leonie Shepherd, a former electorate officer for Dr Flegg.

Mr Hallett, a long-term Liberal operative, will hold a press conference at 8.30am (AEST) outside Queensland's Parliament House.

He told AAP he has documents that prove Dr Flegg is unfit to be a government minister but declined to give more details before the press conference.

Mr Hallett has worked as a ministerial adviser in the Howard government and also helped Dr Flegg when he was Liberal leader in 2006.

In 2005, Mr Hallett was at the centre of controversy.

The then federal ministerial adviser was accused of trying to influence the Wyong Shire Council in NSW over a $1.5 million federal grant it was seeking to dredge a creek.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Heather Suridge thinks her politician is wonderful because he moonlights as a doctor when he should be in his office representing her and thousands of others in Moggill and thinks it's nothing to alter paperwork
    etc. and then has the audacity to try and condemn Graeme Hallett for being totally honest Moral standards seem to have dropped for Heather

  • And how reliable is Mr. Hallets 'good opinion'? Sounds like a witch-hunt and the only one stirring the sour grapes cauldron is Mr. Hallet. We have lost a good, hard-working man in Parliament but at least we still have him in Moggill. We would like him to stay.

  • Gees has this mob reached a dozen of their party under investigation/suspicion yet. How many have been sacked already? Imagine if they had an opposition where they'd be - goneski.
