The Liberal candidate is former Queensland AMA head-honcho Ingrid Tall. The Liberal Party website tells us nothing about Ingrid, but a Google search is quite useful. One link that seemed worthy of note was from the Sydney Star Observer, a Sydney GLBTI magazine:
Openly lesbian, former Queensland AMA president Ingrid Tall has shocked colleagues by becoming a Liberal party candidate.
Hmmmm, the plot thickens a little. Demographically, Brisbane has a high gay and lesbian population, and are likely to be inclined toward electing one of their own. Whether they'd be prepared to cross the Rubicon (or should that be the Brisbane?) is the vital question. Certainly, Tall is likely to outdo Bevis in terms of a personal vote and a high profile.
Ultimately, however, the seat is likely to be caught up in the nationwide swing to the ALP, and Bevis will hold on. Still, Tall sounds like the kind of talent the Libs should be welcoming to their parliamentary team.
