In this video Marty Warburton, a local petrol station owner in Grantham, a small Lockyer Valley community about 100 kilometres west of Brisbane, speaks about the inadequate government response to the flood disaster. At the time, police threatened to arrest Warburton if he attempted to speak with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Queensland Premier Anna Bligh when they visited Grantham in late January.
