i noticed that it said, ' only Queensland Premier Anna Bligh can stop it.' Not very encouraging in depending on her to go against the mining giants. Like asking the puppet, and not the puppet master.
We asked her not to put fluoride in our water. That fell on deaf ears.
Our main chance is that 3 minutes of democracy we get every 3 years at the polls.
