About Queensland Labor Premier Anna Bligh

The following was posted as a comment to the Larvatus Prodeo story Anna's Independence Day of 22 June 08.

Whilst it may be possible to argue that Anna Bligh does not have all of Peter Beattie's serious flaws, the article seems to overlook a whole range of hugely controversial and unpopular pro-big-business policies of Anna Bligh and her government. Some are clearly Bligh's own initiatives, whilst many others are continuations of Beattie's policies.

These include her anti-democratic trampling on the rights of communities and their local councils to oppose over-development and overpopulation (as discussed in the forum Will “the great immigration debate” take place? abruptly ended seemingly on the flimsiest of pretexts) and her policy of continuing to flog off the family silver (currently the Cairns and Mackay airports, and, before long I expect, water, Queensland Rail also) to pay for other government services.

Her determination to accelerate the insane destructive enormously costly frenzy of road, bridge, tunnel and high-rise construction across Brisbane is beyond belief, and her continued encouragement of population growth, when existing Brisbane residents cannot afford to rent accommodation let alone buy dwellings seems to indicate a reckless indifference to their welfare.

She is truly a servant of the property lobby and other powerful vested interests.

The day Peter Beattie arrogantly declared Qld as the SMART State, I doubt that there has been one smart decision come from this state government. Anna Bligh is a clone of Mr. Beattie and is taking the state into a banana republic. Prime farming land is being taken over for coal mining. This land will never produce food again and at a time when we are told of a world food shortage. Recylced effluent and industrial waste to go into our drinking water and flouride a known poison. Lets hope our children and their children are strong enough to overcome the strong possibility of very bad health.

Have you heard the story about Anna Blind?
Are you really sorry, is she on your mind?
Are you really sorry, is she on your mind?

One day, she got a wonderful thought;
drinking water that is dry gonna make us fly,
drinking water that is dry gonna make us fly.

Smile, people, smile, tomorrow we fly,
with dry kind of water, made by Anna Blind,
with dry kind of water, made by Anna Blind.

Have you heard of Johkky Cash? Oh, Anna's made him cry.
The poor fellow rather died than drank something dry,
The poor fellow rather died than drunk something dry.

Anna used to sail with Luxembourg's fleet.
Now she can fly all on her feet.
Now she can fly all on her feet.

Smile, people, smile, tomorrow we fly,
with dry kind of water, made by Anna Blind,
with dry kind of water, made by Anna Blind.

Her mouse, dog and dress are bright, she wants to paint bright night!
Her heart feels so light, she Thinks she's a kite.
Her heart feels so light, she Thinks she's a kite.

As busy as a queen bee, she likes to see the honey.
Her sight is all right, her mind is on rewind,
Her sight is all right, her mind is going blind.

Smile, people, smile, tomorrow we fly,
with dry kind of water, made by Anna Blind,
with dry kind of water, made by Anna Blind.

Made by Anna Blind !

Anna Blind,
