Annastacia Palaszczuk's referral to the Ethics Committee is a serious issue and calls into question her judgement over comments made in Parliament and at Labor's state conference.
Annastacia Palaszczuk's integrity is in tatters.
Following the CCC's damning assessment, the LNP called for the establishment of a select committee to look at the serious allegations against the Premier, comprising equal numbers from both major parties and representation from the crossbench to guarantee an open and impartial investigation.
Today's decision means that the LNP will be unable to question the Premier about this matter next week or establish a select committee to investigate her conduct.
Annastacia Palaszczuk tried to dismiss this issue as the 'argy-bargy' of Question Time, but Labor's own Speaker has taken a dramatically different view.
The Premier must now accept the consequences of her actions.
