Majura ‘roo cull suspended by the ACT Administrative Appeals Tribunal

By johnboy - 14 May 2009 25

The ABC reports that the ACT Administrative Appeals Tribunal has waded into ‘roo culling, ordering the half-completed cull on the Majura Range be halted while the Tribunal gathers to deliberate.

    Tribunal president Linda Crebbin has ordered a stay to the cull of kangaroos at the Majura site until the issue can be considered by the tribunal’s full panel.

    She says she doubts a short delay in the kangaroo cull will affect any threatened species.

The “short delay” is to a June hearing. No doubt followed by countless appeals.

Not surprising to see that the decision was made by a woman. Of course. When will governments stop making tokenistic appointments of women when it has been proven that they are just not up to the task. The experiment has failed and it’s time to get back to normal again.

Good grief! I’ve so much to say to you Eddie…. but I can’t be bothered.

The Tribunal definitely has jurisdiction. It is an appeal from the decision to grant the culling licence. The decision was made by an ACT Government body, hence it reviewable.

The dopey bint from liberation nsw on radio this morning really had no idea on the process either. She completely misrepresented the decision of the Tribunal.

The people causing this unnecessary delay have completely misrepresented the tribunal’s powers when they say the decision says the government is doing something “illegal”. The Government makes the rules!! I hope costs are awarded against the Animal Liberation people, and a month’s delay will be quite expensive.

WTF?

I think competence is the word, not gender.

Any evidence there Eddie other than blind misogyny and ignorance?

I doubt it.

Why has it been stopped? They provide no reason for preventing the cull from progressing? I would also question whether the AAT actually has jurisdiction in this case..

What about the people who had several weeks of work as a result of this cull??
what happens as far as their income till this is heard at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal? There are not just shooters with Culling Licences working on this contract.

Quick roos, make a run for it while you still can during the armistice! 🙂

It’s not the government, it’s the judiciary. I agree that it’s a waste of time and money, but I disagree that it shouldn’t be possible.

Perhaps if individuals or organisations lodging these appeals unsuccessfully were charged the cost of the delay (ipso facto of course), we’d see fewer of these frivolous ones…

What on God’s green earth does the bloody Administrative Appeals Tribunal believe can be added to this process that hasn’t been done to death already? This is little more than pointless pandering to mischief makers simply want to interfere with the due process of an elected government.

F**k. hippies.

RANT TIME:

ARRRRRGGGG!

Why are my tax payers dollars getting sucked away with useless tribunals, comities, white papers, brown papers, and the like?

Who is going to pay for all this waste of public money, me and you.
Surely if something has been given a green light then nothing should stop it, bar a actual real reason to. Not that I travel down that way anymore but lots of people I know have hit a roo many times in that area, who cares about the wild life, when your drive down Majura is like the movie death race.

I wonder if Paul McCartney cash has anything to do with it?

The report explains nothing about the reason for this culling to be stopping either. Oh and one person can just stop something without explaining it, what kind of government can do this?
