In a further setback for the LNP government, Premier Campbell Newman has had to sack an underperforming Minister, who was found to be 100% horsemeat.
“I’m as shocked as anyone,” said Newman, announcing the sacking.
“I trusted the contents of the product I was given. When I realised something was wrong, of course I chucked it out immediately.”
Although apologetic about the presence of horsemeat in his Cabinet, Newman emphasised that it was no worse than the previous Labor government’s decision to appoint vegetables to important Ministerial positions.
Opposition Leader Annastacia Romanov has maintained that the elevation of horsemeat to the Ministry will leave an unsavoury taste in the mouth of Queenslanders.
“The Premier promised that his Ministry would leave an indelible mark on the state. As it turns out, it’s been an inedible one.”
