Patch me if you can: Labor's bikie law fail

ONLY 27 bikies in Queensland have handed back their patches since Labor brought in its new organised crime laws.

The State Opposition will today reveal data arguing the Government was being soft on bikies as tensions began to surface between gangs on the Coast.

Under the LNP's Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment laws, 434 bikies left their gangs in three years. Comparing the rate of dissociation, Labor could expect to remove about 139 members.

Opposition police spokesman Tim Mander, who will visit the Coast today, said the first seven months of Labor's crime crackdown had been a failure.

"Labor has rolled out the red carpet to criminal gangs and organised crime is starting to flourish again on the Gold Coast," he said.
