While Far North Queensland, the channel country, and much of Queensland's west is experiencing exceptional early summer rains, South East Queensland remains dry as it has done for several years.

The southeast is the most populous area of the State and growing on a daily basis, yet it has no water reserves.

THE SOLUTION... the revised Bradfield Scheme, a National Water Grid, an infrastructure asset owned and operated by the Federal government on behalf of, and in the best interests of, the people of Australia!

If you are on the cruise ship do not look this way it may spoil your day!

I assume you will be following up this breach of the approval or advising us who can as Council have refused to do so despite repeated correspondence from our legal team.

Quote: Now the fact that a Director of Public Prosecutions fails to find sufficient evidence to sustain a conviction should not raise the level of public interest to the extent that this case has. What distinguishes this case is that only a few months before the DPP's decision was handed down, an inquest was held into the death of Mulrunji Doomadgee which ran in open court for some weeks. The Deputy Coroner Christine Clements had said, referring to the scuffle in the Police Station that "these actions of Senior Sergeant Hurley caused the fatal injuries". Unquote

Ik zoek voor mijn vriendin een persoon die mogelijk haar vader is. Ja het is nogal ingewikeld.

Haar moeder heeft nooit een naam genoemd vandaar en is inmiddels overleden.

Haar moeders naam is Eugenie van Reynst en woonde toen der tijd in Meester Cornelis in Jakarta, Indonesie.

Premier Peter Beattie said this afternoon that he had established a high level Response Team to provide advice to State Cabinet on the findings by the Acting State Coroner regarding the death of Mulrunji.

Editors note: Mulrunjl died in the custody of the Queensland police on Palm Island off Townsville. This action caused a huge riot on the island.
