Former Premier’s disgraceful post after CBD death

Ray Hadley has unleashed on former Queensland Premier Campbell Newman over a social media post about this morning’s CBD pedestrian fatality.

A woman was hit by a bus at the intersection of Wharf and Ann Street just before 7am.

Paramedics worked on her for around 20 minutes but were unable to save her life.

Just two hours later Mr Newman took to Twitter, criticising police for causing traffic “chaos”.

Mr Newman’s post sparked an avalanche of criticism from the public and the media alike, including from those who witnessed the tragedy.

Instead of apologising for his comments and removing the post, Campbell Newman doubled down on his stupidity.
