LNP not talking about Newman's resignation offer

The LNP is remaining tight lipped on whether they would like their former leader to remain, well, tight lipped.

Former Premier Campbell Newman hijacked the political agenda on Thursday in an interview with The Courier Mail, offering up that he had attempted to resign from the LNP leadership, twice, ahead of the last election, as he did not want the Campbell Newman of it all, to pull his 'strong' team down.

It gave his successor Annastacia Palaszczuk the opportunity to talk about something that wasn't Billy Gordon related and she seized on the opportunity.

"I don't think it would have made any difference to the election result," Ms Palaszczuk said of the to-Newman-or-not-to-Newman question.

"Because the public, the people of Queensland, were sick and tired of the arrogance of the LNP, of all the LNP, not just Campbell Newman. They were all responsible for their actions, they divided Queensland."
