“The congestion on the road to Damascus at the weekend made the Ipswich Motorway look free-flowing.”

Dennis Atkins reports on the merger of the Queensland Liberals with the Nationals. Queensland state Liberal party president Mal Brough felt betrayed by the fact that people he assumed supported his stance changed their minds. After the dust had settled, Brough announced he had had it with politics:

“I am feeling gutted by this experience and am extremely disappointed by the behaviour of certain people throughout it. This experience has been much worse for me than losing the election.”

Brough said that the merged party had been founded on “lies and deceit” and that it was an “abomination”. There was no love lost:

“I’m sick and tired of being carved up for trying to do the right thing. I’ve had a gutful of dealing with people who I regard as little more than parasites.”
