Bill Stefaniak’s ongoing war on freedom is in full swing and today he’s announced that in his efforts to sacrifice every tenet of liberalism on the altar of embarrassing the Government (his party does continue to describe itself as “Liberal”) he’s going to try and introduce more draconian knife laws.
“The legislation will create a new offence of possessing a knife either in licensed premises or in the vicinity of licensed premises (that is, within 200 metres of licensed premises)… Perhaps the most significant change is a new section to enable police to conduct random searches for knives in relation to persons either in or in the vicinity of licensed premises.”
Random searches? Wars have been fought and heads removed from the executives that have proposed less. Good luck to the chefs of Civic’s restaurants figuring out when they’re within 200 metres of licensed premises. Good luck to all of us in fact.
One comes to wonder if Mr Stanhope hasn’t offered Bill a cushy job if he does his best to make the Liberals totally unelectable. Certainly bollocks like this makes me positively pleased to be languishing under the neglect of the current elected dictatorship.
