Mr Dick makes fun of someone’s name
Campbell Newman is like the character Newman (pictured) in Seinfeld, Minister for Industrial Relations and Education Cameron Dick said today.
“Like the postman in Seinfeld, Campbell Newman is known for his shonky, shoddy and grand schemes that eventually come to nothing. Like the postman, Campbell Newman loves his position, loves his status, but never delivers,” Mr Dick said.
The minister caused uproar during Question Time with his take on the popular ‘90s sitcom.
“The LNP must be taking the advice of George Costanza. George Costanza once said to Jerry, ‘Jerry, it’s not a lie if you believe it,’ ” he said.
Mr Dick withdrew this statement at the instruction of the speaker, Mr John Mickel, but criticised the relationship between Opposition leader Jeff Seeney and Mr Newman.
