Humorous goings on in Queensland state parliament...

No Hansard yet... too early.

But today the Speaker decided that Lindy Nelson-Carr's correct, twenty-one word Ministry title could be abbreviated. Her correct title is:
Hon Lindy Nelson-Carr MP
Minister for Communities, Disability Services, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, Multicultural Affairs, Seniors and Youth

The speaker used:

Hon Lindy Nelson-Carr, Minister for Social Inclusion.


Give the man a prize!

Why not the minister for everything and nothing?

This has to be a source for endless parody and much ridicule

Now let me see ... first pass..

Minister for Communities, Disability Services, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, Multicultural Affairs, Seniors and Youth ...

rearrange and grab the letters

Communities, that’s a C
Disability Services, D S
Aboriginal A
Torres Strait TS
Islander Partnerships, IP
Multicultural Affairs, MA
Seniors S
Youth Y

So I make it MADS, CATS, IPS and YAM ...no make that MAD CATS PISS MAY that is moving services from disability to Seniors and Island Partnerships (an admirable move)

Yes that’s it, the Hon Lindy Nelson-Carr MP, Minister for MAD CATS MAY PISS.

Next take.... ?
