Looks like the Northern Rivers could use Queenslands newman to really get the runs on the board.

When newman arrived unemployment in Queensland in 2012 was 5.5%.

Unemployment in Queensland is now 7%.

Another fine example of how good CSG and coal mining is for Queenslanders.

Strange John Fraser that you equate CSG and Coal mining to employment figures - personally I'd look at the number of non-producing public servants Newman got rid of to explain the jump?
