  • Actually it's the wrong day. On 6th June 1859 the Queen signed a couple of documents in London. The folk in Brisbane vaguely knew it was about to happen but didn't know it had happened on that day until the mail arrived a few months later - and the first Governor another month or two after that. The real Queensland day is 22nd May 1860 when our own Parliament met for the first time. On that day, therefore, we should do all of the things suggested in your poll. Especially lamingtons and pumpkin scones!

      • Maybe we should boot out the undemocratic LNP government and all dance around a bonfire of the Abbott governments broken election promises, hang on that would be to big a fire, might be too risky.

          • Should have a public holiday, so that everyone can go to the park and have a BBQ in the generally fantastic Queensland winter weather.

          • Where are all the Romantics...armed with a chilled bottle of Champagne (especially chosen by our own sommelier AKA State Treasurer Tim Nicholls), get down on bended knee and present your Dearly Beloved with something sapphire (The State Gem) and a corsage of Cooktown orchids (the State Flower) and position yourselves atop a roof bedecked with solar panels, watching a formation of Brolgas (the State Bird) soar against the setting Sun. while singing ''Life in great in the Sunshine State'' Aw! Gee! Sigh! Quelle Romantique!!!

                • Don't these people realize that the State Debt would have been Billions more if we had had to build the Power Stations that the Solar Panels saved us needing.

                  • You realise they hate solar panels because in their opinion climate change is not man made and they lose GST revenue from solar panel owners by not being able to sell them electricity from the grid, .... Hang on, GST? .. Revenue? Well why not bump the price up to electricity users to re coup the lost GST revenue? Mmm, they are, aren't they !
