    I see Anna has got straight onto the important issues by moving Labor Day back to May.
    She will prove to be a disaster for Queensland.

    WAR has broken out inside the union factions that effectively control the parliamentary Labor Party. The Left has joined forces with old guard Centrists to freeze out the Right-wing AWU faction. It is all part of the Left’s strategy to control cabinet positions.
    The arm wrestling is proving especially awkward for Annastacia Palaszczuk, who has been forced to have her preferred list of ministers vetted by union chiefs. How demeaning. Meanwhile, there is great consternation in the executive ranks of the public service, with several key directors-general facing the axe. This will lead to the forced redundancies of many of their staff further down the line. And what if there is a power shift? Treasury bean counters ponder the wasteful payouts. And they wonder whether sacked execs might be rehired should Lawrence Springborg’s LNP team win back Ferny Grove and seize government.
