The Queensland Premier has sunk to a new low - his indiscriminate cost cutting will see high care aged care residents of Eventide Nursinghome on Brisbane's north side lose their home.
No one thought before the election to make Campbell Newman promise to not evict elderly people from their nursing homes, who would have thought a government could stoop so low, the staff of Eventide probably felt safe after hearing his promises about protecting workers on the front line, and the residents of Eventide couldn't have known that the new premier was going to kick them out of their homes.
Almost 46% of nursing home residents in the seat of Sandgate voted for
Mr Newman, and this is how he repays them - and what's worse, he outsourced the bad news to the Hospital board instead of being up front with them during the election campaign.
