PM backs councils in merger debate – ABC News
Indeed he did, today during question time. Demanding that Peter Beattie allow a plebiscite, John Howard told the House that the coalition would investigate all avenues to force the Queensland government to allow the people a voice on the matter of council amalgamations.
Yet more desperation from a man who is fast turning desperation politics into an art form. I’d be interested to see what constitutional lawyers thought of that outburst from the PM. I gather it might take them a few days to reply, but not because it’s a difficult question. I’d suggest they’d be too tied up guffawing and falling about to focus on the issue.
