No links I’m afraid but it appears that Katy Gallagher has again had her competence called into question, this time by a former Queensland woman suffering from a number of debilitating afflictions.
From what I can gather at this stage, the woman moved here with her husband, an AFP officer, late last year and applied for disability benefits somewhat akin to what she received in QLD.
These disbility payments were not forthcoming for reasons unknown to me. However, the woman has now taken to holding a hunger and medication strike outside the legislative assembly building for the past two days and nights, and if reports on the radio are correct, might die this weekend.
Other reports have alleged that no-one from the government will see her and that she had been abused by one of Gallagher’s staffers. It has also been mentioned that the government is merely following procedure, which you can take which ever way you want.
Apparently Brendan Smyth and Vicki Dunne have taken up her cause.
Frankly, it sounds like another Gallagher not responsible stuff up which would not surprise me. However, I would like to hear the full story before making any judgement.
On the governments side was the fact that the woman did not seem, in my opinion, to be in total control of her mental facilities. Possibly on account of the hunger strike and her illness?
Any Rioters out there that have any more knowledge of the issue? Is the whole thing a beat up or not?
I’m making no assumptions at this stage so post away with what you know.
