PREMIER Campbell Newman managed to avoid a group of angry protesters positioned outside the Rockhampton Showgrounds, where the LNP held its state council, on Saturday.

While Mr Newman spoke of the achievements of his government during its first year, the crowd of up to 40 people gathered outside to do the opposite.

Concerned residents and union members spoke of broken promises and severe job cuts.

Protesters yelled for Peter Costello's Queensland Commission of Audit to be released in full.

Queensland Nurses Union regional organiser David Abraham was disgusted by recommendations to privatise state assets, such as aged care facilities.

Both federal and state LNP MPs gathered for the council to formulate policies. But Keppel MP Bruce Young yesterday said he couldn't reveal anything that was discussed.
