BRISBANE : In a desperate bid to save his seat of Ashgrove, Premier Campbell Newman has promised to build a toad museum in his electorate if he does not get run over by a Mr Whippy van while mixing with real people on the campaign trail. An artist’s impression of Toad Hall , the first of 20 to be built across the state , is exclusively shown above, based on one in Thailand . The ALP immediately said this weird proposal shows that the ratty and rattled LNP is running a desperate Wind In The Willows Tv, hot air and spin campaign .
In a fighting statement , Premier Newman said that if he is squashed as a result of the vote on election night, he hopes the LNP survives to rule the lily pond and will not waive construction of the Ashgrove toad edifice as a memorial to him. A string of toad museums would boost the tourist industry , he croaked , and could be quickly converted into casinos as well to raise revenue .
