Kate Jones 'running scared': Newman

Ms Jones yesterday announced she would step down as Environment Minister in an attempt to thwart the political ambitions of the former Brisbane lord mayor.

Speaking at a school fete yesterday, Ms Jones declared the gloves were now off in the battle against premier contender Mr Newman for the inner-Brisbane seat of Ashgrove.
