I seriously had so much fun this morning as part of Mayor Peter Flannery’s Invitational XI taking on Paul Szep’s amazing Blind Bats Inc. in “Beep Ball” Cricket. Even with full vision we didn’t stand a chance! But I did get to relive my glory days of “E Grade” Junior Cricket! 🤣🏏 ... See MoreSee Less

There’s nothing better than a Citizenship Ceremony - welcoming new “Aussies” to our region! But it was particularly appropriate today given it’s Australian Citizenship Day. 🇦🇺 A huge welcome to the Woodhouse family of Moorina - formerly from the UK and France - who along with 145 others took their pledges this afternoon! ...

The Queensland Parliament has just passed the Voluntary Assisted Dying legislation.

The Parliament was able to conduct this debate with an extraordinary level of respect for the divergent views held by Members and Queenslanders more broadly.

Many of you will know I voted against the laws. If you’d like a full explanation of why please email my office at Glass.House@parliament.qld.gov.au

I would ask, if you make a comment on this post, you do so respectfully. Any inflammatory remarks will be moderated.

Bring Queenslanders Home!

Last night, I spoke in Parliament in support of the motion by the Member for Kawana, “That this House notes that, with two hours notice, the Premier closed hotel quarantine for returning Queenslanders but allowed sporting entourages to enter Queensland, and calls on the government to immediately provide quarantine opportunities to stranded Queenslanders so that they can return home to Queensland and to their families now.”

The Members for Mudgeeraba, Warrego and Mermaid Beach also shared the plight of residents from their electorates.

I’m over the excuses. If it’s good enough for sporting entourages, it’s good enough for Joan, Allen, Lily, John and so many more.

Bring them home!
