“Never hold an inquiry unless you know what the outcome will be”

  • Russ Hinze was a conservative country politician from Queensland, Australia.  A bit Boss Hogg you might say.
  • He was notoriously tough on the old law and order jaw-jaw , but was even more notorious for his rather blind eyes.  He was named in the famous Fitzgerald Inquiry for accepting bribes from business types.
  • He was a dairy farmer who had one too many helpings of cream cheese.
  • His one enduring legacy, if I may be indulged here, is his grand daughter..

There was something good inside Russ...his grand daughter Kristy
