On closing ceremony
Peter Beattie needs to admit he did not only get the closing of the Games wrong, but the opening as well. Australia is now a joke around the world. Thank you Peter. Viv, Earlville Peter Beattie and his committee stuffed both opening and closing ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games. Why was this allowed to happen? All we got was “sorry”. K.J, Cairns Beattie stuffs up again. He left Queensland with a legacy of debt and inaction, just like when he was premier. It’s about the blazer brigade and the suits. If he’s not involved, it’s a disaster. If he’s involved, it's a bigger disaster. Phil, Freshwater
