MP's bullseye against Premier Anna Bligh

ONE of Anna Bligh's disgruntled MPs wants a bullseye on the Premier's head.

Member for Bundamba Jo-Ann Miller has proposed erecting a dartboard featuring a photo of the Labor leader at a festival in her electorate to raise party funds from her constituents.

The Sunday Mail has learnt Ms Miller floated the idea for the looming Jacaranda Festival at Ipswich during a recent brainstorming session with party members.

Labor sources said a happy snap of Ms Bligh would have been pinned to the bullseye of the dartboard, with punters called on to fire missiles at the Premier for a small contribution to party coffers.

Openly critical of the asset sell-off, Ms Miller yesterday declined to comment.

``Basically, I'm not talking about any issues relating to Labor party meetings,'' she said.

Some close to the MP confirmed the plan was floated but insisted it was an off-the-cuff remark and was said in jest.

But others say it was not a joke and that the MP said it would please her cranky constituents, many of whom work for Queensland Rail.

It is believed the ALP has instead decided to use raffles and other fundraising measures at the festival later this month.
