Better than book learning
“Name withheld”, Woolloongabba (Mailbox, Apr 5-6) questions the suitability of Premier Campbell Newman and Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie to hold their positions in the Queensland Government. He or she does this on the premise that the premier has no formal education in law, human behaviour, economics or health sciences. I worked for one of the big four banks for more than 40 years and in that time the bank’s senior staff came up through the ranks, having started work at age 16. Staff were transferred throughout the state to gain experience in the various business enterprises and rural industries. Experience and common sense will beat formal education most of the time.
