'Newman spitting on liberty': Former MP angered by VLAD laws

Former MP Rob Messenger has accused Premier Campbell Newman of spitting "in the eye of liberty".

FORMER MP and past Palmer United Party candidate Rob Messenger has slammed the State Government's VLAD laws in an open letter, while calling for an Australian bill of rights. 

Former MP Rob Messenger on VLAD laws:

Newman's use of bikie laws is like a despot's use of poison gas.

It will kill his enemy, but many innocents will also die or be harmed - and in doing so, every human right will be broken.

Mr Newman's bikie legislation - has broken most fundamental human rights fought for - since Luther officially began the Reformation and nailed his thesis to the church door in Wittenberg in 1517, nearly 500 years ago.

The Premier of Queensland has:

  • Made people guilty of a crime before they have been properly declared guilty - a breach of: Article 9, Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen - National Assembly of France, 1789 and Amendment 11, United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948.
  • Taken away the right of people to peacefully assemble - a breach of: Amendment 1, United States Bill of Rights 1791 and Article 13, Universal declaration of Human Rights 1948.
  • Allowed secret, unchallenged evidence against a citizen to establish guilt -from government agencies, proven in the recent past to be, corrupt or dysfunctional - a breach of: every law and human right - except those followed by the Grand Inquisitor Torquemada of the 15th century - who specialised in extracting "confessions" by the glow of a hot poker.

No amount of spin can cover up the fact that Mr Newman, has spat in the eye of liberty, pushed Queensland toward the darkness and now rejoices in the unchallengeable position of power, that you gifted him.

Perhaps its time Australians were given the protection of our own bill of rights?

In a one-chamber parliament, there will always be Newmans.
