PLEASE HOLD ...

PREMIER A-Pal also is drag­ging her feet over the fu­ture of the Ya­manto po­lice call cen­tre

she in­spected in July. Po­lice Min­is­ter Jo-Ann Miller wants it closed. Ip­swich mayor Paul Pisas­ale needs it for his

CCTV net­work. PREMIER Anna Paral­y­sis must think her loyal public ser­vants are out on the grog get­ting par­a­lytic dur­ing lunch. Ge­orge St grapevine says any week now Queens­land public ser­vants will need dis­pen­sa­tions to ac­cept cor­po­rate in­vi­ta­tions. Not a di­rect grog ban but you get the drift. “No’’ to footy in­vi­ta­tions, with public ser­vice so­cial­is­ing re­stricted to “learn­ing’’ events.

At­tempts by pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ments to en­force grog bans failed. The public ser­vice club (Wil­liam St) did a roar­ing trade in that pre-mo­bile phone era. XXXX even in­vented mid­strength Gold to en­sure staff could re­turn to work with­out in­jury or fall­ing asleep. The Premier will quickly learn about her re-elec­tion chances by the way the edict is ob­served. In the mean­time, her “paral­ysed’’ staff should visit the pub more of­ten. They may be inspired to fill those re­main­ing va­can­cies for Di­rec­tors-Gen­eral.
