The mysterious disappearance of former LNP MP Scott Driscoll has been solved after he was found by bushwalkers early this morning. Mr Driscoll, who controversially resigned from the LNP last month, was found badly injured at the bottom of a cliff after spending seven Parliamentary sitting days out in the cold.
Premier Campbell Newman first raised the alarm after Mr Driscoll failed to return after an LNP bushwalking bonding session. “He’s usually so reliable. I immediately knew something was wrong and as soon as seven sittings of Parliament had passed I raised the alarm.”
A relieved Mr Driscoll thanked his rescuers. “I’m just so grateful people came past, though I would have thought Clive Palmer or Bob Katter would have come looking for me.”
It appears Mr Driscoll fell over the cliff after he strayed from the path taken by the rest of the LNP. Police are at a loss to understand how Mr Driscoll fell when the cliff was clearly marked but Mr Driscoll assured the authorities that he jumped and wasn’t pushed.
