Sir,

In the recent confrontation between canefarmers and Premier Beattie, one TV news reporter claimed that "Bob Katter was hiding behind a tree".

I have it on good authority that this was totally untrue.

Mr Katter was right up front.

Also, following Peter Beattie's self praise for his government's sugar industry policy, he made the boast that he would not walk away from it - an unfortunate turn of phrase for him.

Following these brave words, Bob Katter came toe-to-toe with him, and we saw the Premier make a swift retreat to the safety of his car and of course the police.

Frank Bellet,
Petrie, Qld
