Gallant Leader: Premier Anna Bligh (Queensland Flood Crisis)

I wanted to post this on my blog, because I think it is a great speech, and also because my admiration for Queensland Premier Anna Bligh has just risen so much as I’ve watched her deal with the flooding crisis in our state. This is not a scripted speech. Ms Bligh has dot points that she covers in her regular press conferences, but much of what she says is natural and from the heart, as this speech definitely proves. Please pray for our leaders as they continue to deal with flooding and the cleanup process which is only just beginning.

Latest stats:

Death Toll: 15 (previously incorrectly stated as 22)

Missing: 55 (including children)

Homes flood affected: in excess of 30,000
