Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Brian Austin was a Queensland politician and Minister of Health (1980 to 1983) who represented the state seat of Wavell for the Liberal Party (1977-1983) and then for the National Party (1983-1986). Austin switched to the National Party (along with Don Lane, who was the Minister for Main Roads) in 1983 after Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen lobbied several Liberals to cross the floor, thus enabling the National Party to form government with a very slim majority, as prior to the swap the Nationals were one seat short of governing in their own right. At the 1986 Queensland state election, Austin became the first MP for the new Queensland electorate of Nicklin (1986-1989).
