According to a Sydney paper bikie gangs have declared Canberra a “free for all” zone because of its lack of consorting laws.

Even a feared Dutch gang called Satudarah is among a number of bikie gangs who have been given legal advice that the ACT would be easier to operate out of rather than elsewhere where tough anti-bikie laws are in place.

Leaves us here in the ACT with a warm jolly feeling ..hey.
