Peter Costello to audit Queensland finances

Howard's World's Greatest Treasurer(undeclared) is to audit Queensland finances and make suggestions for 'decades to come' . Apparently he will spend two days a week working on this project(extra long weekend). You would think there would need to be more urgency to find solutions to a the economy then this pedestrian report. First report due by June. But this from the man that Paul Keating said had "been in a hammock for 10 years" and called him "the laziest, most indolent, most unimaginative treasurer in postwar history".

Shock, Costello will find that Queensland under Labor is a basket case(BTW the jury is out on this point so far). He probably won't mention that it may have been worse if not for the asset sales.

1. World greatest treasurer...YEAH right

This bloke was NEVER a Treasurer,he was nothing more than a Howard BUM boy.
How can he audit Qld treasury,he couldn't even manage Australia's books.
There was NO infrastructure spending when he was Treasurer.He never l;eft a cent go out into the country.All he did was sit on it and watch the rest of the country crumble.
I would believe him as much as I would believe that Tony Abbott will become the next PM of this country,and I dont believe that at all.He will be challenged before the next election and he will be pushed to the back benches,..
Any one would think that Qld is in a mess.Australia was in a BIG mess when Howard was thrown out and Costello wasnt much better.
Fuel prices went up,interest rates went up,cost of living went up,BANKS snubbed him and all the Libs could say was that he was the best Treasurer that we had.....I can tell you that there were MANY Labor Treasurers that were better than him,BUT how the Libs have very short memories,or they werent around when we had McMahon,Gorton,Holt,Frazer were all in power.Oh how many Libs forget how badly were were in the 1950's and 1960's

2. Costello is just there to give some sort of "cred" to the bullshit.

So far they have "found" about a quarter of a million. That should pay for the fuel on the
police helicopter/s they reckon we need to chase all the bad guys back to Syd where they belong!!
Springborg is Newman's biggest threat. So, to shut him up for a while, Newman has given him the Health portfolio. The ministry of death. When Springers starts to get heat from the bloody Liberals, a coup can't be far behind.
Anyway buy shares in popcorn.
