Queensland Attorney-General should drop electoral reforms

Human rights lawyer Harry Hobbs argues in the Brisbane Times on 23 My 2014 that the Attorney-General should drop his electoral reform legislation:  ‘Queensland’s recent history and the current ICAC investigations in NSW should have clearly established that democracy is worth insulating from the excessive financial influence of rich and powerful stakeholders.  It is commendable that Mr Bleijie appears willing to amend his Bill. However, unless the Bill is dropped entirely, it appears that this is a lesson that Mr Bleijie has not learned.’
