Annastacia Palaszczuk: Queensland’s accidental Premier

Profile of Annastacia Palaszczuk in the Brisbane Times (4.4.15) Madonna King:

‘”She is the exact opposite of Campbell Newman,” says Jim Soorley, a former Brisbane Labor lord mayor and now a businessman and close ally of the premier. Soorley believes Newman went out of his way to antagonise people, “whereas Annastacia – her whole thing is to reach out to people and bring them along with her”.’
