|Peeled back from dead ?|
Comrade Malcolm Turnbull must wonder what the hell to expect next from his so called Coalition partners. Under constant attack by the Mad Monk and other bothersome brethren, he now faces another unexpected turn of events. It is a nightmare development, a blast from the past : posters popping up in Queensland proposing Joh for PM .
While this is said to relate to a musical comedy about the rotten Joh Bjelke-Petersen government Turnbull cannot be absolutely sure as there are so many dingbat Joh look and think alikes in the Sunshine State who believe Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen walked on water , in white shoes no less, and want to emulate him , take charge of the nation , do a Trump .

Months ago the Murdoch Brisbane Courier Mail ran a series recalling the golden age of crime , corruption and thuggery during the Joh era , exposed by the Fitzgerald Inquiry . Many angles could have been followed up, updated, including the little known Northern Territory connection , the large scale North Queensland drug operations , what happened to all the money and other people involved in criminal , illegal and shady dealings.
Then came the recent rerun of the fateful 1987 Chris Masters ABC TV Moonshine State report which caused the Bjelke-Petersen house of cards to collapse , the revelation that police corruption ran all the way up to the commissioner who went to jail and was stripped of his knighthood .
