Newman disputes Hansard record on bogans of Logan
PREMIER Campbell Newman has denied calling the people of Logan bogans in Parliament.
Labor MPs jumped on the official Hansard record of Parliament which quoted Mr Newman on Wednesday saying: "The bogans who live in Logan.''
Tim Mulherin tweeted that Mr Newman "promised to govern with grace, humility & dignity. see Hansard and make up your own mind.''
"On examining the footage, it is evident that what I said was different to what was recorded in Hansard," he said.
"Let me be clear, the interjection I made was in reference to Mr Palmer and the Member for Gaven's comments on what he thinks about his constituents.
"...I do not think the people of Queensland, in any electorate are bogan,'' Mr Newman said.
"I understand the mayor of Logan, Pam Parker, has taken offence to what was reported in Hansard and again, I would like to set the record straight.
"My interjection was not correctly reported.''
