Take a ride on our new Bypass!

And now some good news for visiting friends who have had to grind through the interminable road works on the current Range Crossing: a $Billion-plus cheque signed today by the Federal Treasurer for the long-awaited Second Range Crossing.

This is testament to the bulldog qualities of three comrades of mine, our local MPs – Federally, Ian Macfarlane and locally, Trevor Watts and John McVeigh – gnashing on this bone and not letting go.

Trevor has this neat simulation of the Bypass journey at his website, and for those who know this region, it is well worth a look:

On Steak, Broadband, & LNPW Tea…

LNPW Tea at Tatts

There were just a few of us thorns among the many roses today at the LNP Women’s ‘Tea at Tattersalls’. A couple of us gents were lucky enough to be at the table with Georgie Somerset (pictured): farmer, President of the National Rural, Regional and Remote Women’s Network, and guest speaker this morning.

The last time I heard Georgie speak was after standing for 30 minutes in an antarctic gale in June outside Toowoomba’s Empire Theatre waiting for admission to Q&A’s travelling road show. That bone-chilling wait really put the Q in Q&A but it was well worth it – not only for the comedian who warmed up the crowd waiting for the cameras to roll, but for the quality of comments by panellists Barnaby Joyce and Georgie Somerset in particular.
