Anna Bligh dons hard hat
in Cairns hospital car park

By Steven Wardill

CAIRNS may be a long way from home, but Anna Bligh has arrived there with her favourite piece of apparel in her luggage - a hard hat.

Blah, blah, blah.

Ms Bligh is in Cairns for this term's sitting of regional Parliament, along with her ministers and their armies of minders, backbenchers, the Opposition and a seemingly endless array of staff.

Much more blah, blah, blah for par after interminable par.

Papua New Guinean Prime Minister Michael Somare will address Parliament today.

Yep, it was the last par. Imagine Kevin Rudd addressing the Simbu Provincial Government - and getting one par at the end of a Kundiawa News story about the local Governor wearing a beanie.

And what a great headline. Really compels you to read moreā€¦..
