Strange goings on in Queensland

That strange hybrid known as the Queensland Liberal National Party clearly still has its problems in trying to present a unified opposition to the Labor Party. There are breakaways and new parties and now the former federal Liberal Minister Mal Brough is hinting that he may run again for the House of Representatives but not under the banner of the LNP whose formation in 2008 he opposed.
The speculation about the Brough political future will be enhanced by a story in this morning's Sunshine Coast Daily where he is quoted making a stinging attack on former colleague Peter Slipper, describing him as someone for whom he has no respect, and calling for Fairfax MP Alex Somlyay to retire.
