Queensland: John Bjelke-Peterson to contest seat of Fisher

PETER THOMPSON: And John Bjelke-Peterson - good to see a Bjelke-Peterson back in Canberra after Flo, of course, left not too long back.

PRU GOWARD: Well, this might be the only Joh or John that actually does make it to Canberra; that a campaign of his father's didn't get very far, just destroyed the Coalition's chances. But you've got now John coming, and of course there is that Bjelke-Peterson magic still in Queensland and it will be interesting to see whether he can wrest what is now a Liberal seat, the seat of Fisher, from Peter Slipper, and that, I guess, adds fire to that three-cornered contest debate that the Queensland Coalition just can't leave alone.
