Re(9): Australian of the Year

To those expressing relief that Group Captain Catherine/Malcolm McGregor did not get awarded a gong, sorry but she/he did!! Below is the Queensland list of recipients.

2016 Queensland Australian of the Year Recipients Announced

2016 Queensland Australian of the Year - Catherine McGregor AM (Toowoomba)
2016 Queensland Senior Australian of the Year - Tim Fairfax AC (Hamilton)
2016 Queensland Young Australian of the Year - Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett (Herston and Westlake) 2016 Queensland Local Hero - Michael Ross (Cooktown)

As well as being disgusted in the National Australian of the Year choice, I am equally disgusted at the Queensland choice. I also wonder how, or why, the former male LtCol in the Army has now become a female GpCapt in the RAAF????
