ECONOMIC THINK TANK REPORTS ON QUEENSLAND ASSET SELL OFF

Posted in Uncategorized by thecuriousmail on May 18, 2010

In Parliament today, Queensland Premier, Anna Bligh, tabled

a report on the public asset sell-off by a government-sponsored

economic think tank.

“The report’s main conclusion,” said Premier Bligh, “is that the

asset sell-off is undeniably to the benefit of all Queenslanders.

The Queensland government represents all Queenslanders, and

the government is going to benefit by receiving money from the sell-off, so therefore all Queenslanders will benefit.

Simple really,”  said the Premier with a broad grin.

Premier Bligh thanked the members of the economic advisory committee for their diligence and persuasiveness,

and joked that no assets were left to repay Queensland’s debt to them for their work.

Premier Bligh rejected outright any criticism of the think tank members or their conclusions.

It is believed the think tank was composed of Eddy Groves, former head of the ABC Learning Centres, a medium

who is believed to channel the late Queensland Premier, Joh Bjelke-Petersen, and a parrot sworn to secrecy.

“Of course I’m glad the government’s decision has been independently vindicated,” the Premier said. “The parrot

had tendered to be critical initially, but then we had him stuffed, and now he’s an ALP member of Parliament. All

good!”
