  • We'll be right CanLie mate won't we?
    Those frontline staff were probably just doing nothing anyway, you see them all the time in hospitals walking around looking busy in their blue uniforms.

  • Errr no Jackie....the cuts were made by the State Government.

    Strangely enough the LNP is blaming others (the ALP just for a change?)
    Is there ever going to be a time when the LNP will take responsability for there own actions?
    Maybe when something positive happens....give em time, something will eventually go right.
    Although there is still the ticking timebomb of 16,000 public servants coming off their redundancy cheques and joining the Dole queue next year sometime.
    Unemployment = 7% = Crime up = Quality of life Down.

    Go the LNP.....The Ship of Fools.
    No wonder so many are bailing out.

  • These cuts have been made federally roger dodger..how about asking your beloved leader why she is giving New Guniea $16million to train their people in health, but cutting our budget and trying to blame Campbell Newman. Get your facts right Qld Labor member/voters have a lot to answer for the mess labor have left this state in.. So speaking of scrooge better have words with your so called treasurer Swan THE DUCK !!!
