I’ll be on Channel 7’s Sunrise program tomorrow (Tuesday) morning opposite Townsville mayor, Tony Mooney, on the issue of Daylight Saving at about 7:10am. Mooney has vowed to fight against Daylight Saving and the splitting of the state into two time zones. His view of the inoperability of two time zones in one state is not shared by Mt Isa mayor, Ron McCullough, who thinks that splitting a state into two time zones isn’t a problem.
EDIT: Mooney isn’t available so now Bob Katter looks like he’ll be my adversary on the program. Given Katter’s historical advocacy of the right-wing popularist policies of Joh Bjelke-Peterson I’m sure it will be an ‘interesting’ debate.
