Back in Queensland Parliament for another week with Dr Christian Rowan MP and all my colleagues.

While the overall outcome of the Federal election was disappointing, I really commend our Queensland LNP - Liberal National Party - especially Ted O'Brien MP - Federal Member for Fairfax Andrew Wallace - LNP Federal Member for Fisher Terry Young MP and Peter Dutton who represent parts of our wonderful state electorate of Glass House.

The LNP still hold 70% of the Federal seats in Queensland - 21 of 30. The Labor party have possibly dropped to just five!

But the big test for the Palaszczuk State Government is that she has now run out of excuses. The Premier can’t blame “Canberra” now.

So, I’m really looking forward to representing you in Parliament this week.

Popped in to St Paul’s Lutheran Retirement Village in Caboolture to catch up with another of our Glasshouse Country LNP - Liberal National Party Branch Legends - Miss Ethel Burgess (of the famous Glass House Mountains Burgess family).
