EDITORIAL: The Queensland Pla ... oh, sorry, must have dozed off.
So, it appears our Premier has a grand plan for Queensland for the next 30 years.
It's the kind of thing that is easy to dismiss and I'm really fighting the temptation.
Unfortunately, a document on the plan lists some of the foundations of the state-saving documents - Education is for life; Communities are our heartland; Regions are the engine rooms of our state; Economic prosperity creates opportunity.
Really? This is our inspiration? This is new ground?
Actually, it sounds like a flashy presentation and lots of talky words made up by PR people who have never dug a ditch in their lives.
And that is what matters. Digging ditches instead of talking about them.
Honestly, the notion that a man who has sacked countless government workers is now going to re-employ them in spectacular new regional projects is something akin to bizarre but a bit weirder.
Yes, it's important to plan for the future and the Premier would cop criticism if he didn't.
But in reality it's kind of pointless unless he is going to be in government for a very long time.
If there is another party in power next year, or in the following term, a new 30-year plan will be developed at similar expense to the taxpayer.
Of course if Mr Newman starts digging ditches straight away, that may not happen.
