BUNDAMBA MP Jo-Ann Miller has been ejected from State Parliament for an hour after calling Premier Campbell Newman a "dill".
The Premier was responding to a question about government spending cuts when Mrs Miller interjected with the insult during a debate Wednesday.
Following her outburst and repeated interruptions, Mrs Miller was ordered to leave the debate in chamber for an hour by the speaker of the house.
Mr Newman was on his feet answering an Opposition question when the incident occurred.
"I am at a bit of a loss to understand the Opposition's position," he said.
"Because we are seeing a flip-flop this afternoon. On the one hand -".
Mrs Miller then interjected with: "You're a dill!"
The Speaker of the House called for order and asked Mrs Miller to withdraw the comments. Mrs Miller said: "Did you say compliments, Madam Speaker?"
The Speaker repeated her request for the comment to be withdrawn and Mrs Miller obliged.
Speaking to the QT after parliament Mrs Miller defended her choice of words.
"The term dill is unparliamentary language and I had to withdraw it. But outside of parliament I don't withdraw from my view that he is a dill," she said.
Later in the session, the LNP returned serve after Mrs Miller was booted from the chamber, with Attorney General Jarrod Bleijie likening the Bundamba MP's vocal outbursts to when Ariel had her voice returned by the evil Ursula in children's book The Little Mermaid.
"I think it is shameful that, all of a sudden, she can find her voice," he told Parliament.
"Her voice was taken away. For two years Ursula took the voice of the member for Bundamba.
"The honourable Labor Party members in this place would not bring themselves to talk about the Health payroll issues in Queensland. Now, we have the member for Bundamba wanting to talk about it all day. It is like the member for Bundamba has found her prince. She has kissed her prince and Ursula has given her her voice back."
Mr Bleijie said after two years of anger over the Queensland Health payroll saga had finally boiled over.
"We have the member for Bundamba trying to say that she is protecting her constituents and sticking up for the rights of union members and the rights of allied health professionals and nurses.
"I say shame on the member for staying silent for so long."
Mrs Miller rejected the claim she was a scarcely heard member of parliament.
"I have always been vocal in my representation of the Bundamba electorate and fighting for what is right.
"They are showing their true colours of the LNP with the tens of thousands of people being sacked."
She explained her ejection from the chamber as the Labor way to stand up for the little person.
Mrs Miller also caused controversy during her first speech to the new parliament, labelling political figures in Ipswich corrupt.
