Terror Laws Compatible with Human Rights – Can you hear the people sing?

By johnboy - 3 May 2006 6

Simon Corbell, who has still not answered the questions he agreed to answer from our readers, has put out a media release bringing us joyous news.

“The advice proves that the ACT Government has honoured its commitment to provide laws that protect national security and human rights and comply with our international obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which is of course, enshrined in the law of the ACT in the Human Rights Act 2004,”

How much did the advice cost? What would you actually have done if it had been adverse? Does anyone really care? Can we have the answers back to our email interview please?

What’s Your opinion?

The delay in responding to the email interview request is, no doubt, due to a need to obtain advice to ensure that the answers do not contravene any of the provisions of The Human Rights Act 2004.

This is the sort of thing that has contributed to our expanding deficit. Expensive legal advice from a Sydney QC on a matter that we don’t need or want and that has no relevance to the efficient administration of the affairs of the ACT.

I’m sure the lads in the pub will raise a glass and cheer the mayor and his sad offsider when I draw their attention to this press release.

Ah, yeah, right Simon…

So the ACT is right and the rest of the country is wrong?

And when did a Territory have to comply with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights? Have we suddenly become a sovereign nation? Does the word Federal mean anything to you?

Why is it that the Stanhope government thinks that they are the leading light in Australian politics to the degree that they have a strange and distastful attitude that smacks of elitism.

Get back to your job Simon and leave the international politics to the big boys who not only understand it, but can influence it.

I’d rather that my wheelie bin was emptied every Wednesday.
