THE SA POLICE COMMISSIONER SAID SOMETHING HUGE LAST WEEK, BUT MOST PEOPLE MISSED IT…

Last week the South Australian Police Commissioner announced the end of mandates for police and other workers.

During the press briefing, the Commissioner, mentioned that SA’s “Emergency declaration” was due to end on 1 April 2022, and he was “hopeful” it would not be extended again.

The Commissioner then added that ALL directives and orders made under the state’s emergency powers, WOULD BECOME ‘NULL & VOID’ once the declared state of emergency ended.

These include all “public activity restrictions, border rules, density limits, enforced quarantine and QR codes.”

IT WOULD ALSO INCLUDE, he said, THE SCRAPPING OF THE GOVERNMENT’S VACCINE MANDATES.

This is something I asked the Premier, in a Question Without Notice last October, but all I got was an evasive response, basically saying ‘the government was looking into it’.

As a point of law, the Commissioner’s confirmation of the situation is as applicable to Queensland as it is to South Australia.

It means, in effect, that were Queensland’s declared ‘state of emergency’ to end as it is meant to, on 26 March, the whole dystopian house of cards would end with it.

All the CHO’s emergency restrictions/laws/measures and, most importantly, mandates would cease to have ANY lawful effect.

Only laws legislated in Parliament would remain ‘in force’.

My big worry is that any extension of the current ‘state of emergency’ declaration to October, gives the Qld government ample time to enact all of the CHO’s emergency measures through parliament, giving them permanent effect.

They have already started to do this.

Last sitting, the Health Amendment Bill was passed.  The Bill contained a number of provisions which made a number of the CHO’s emergency measures permanent.

Given another 6 months or so, how many of these dictatorial orders will they try and legislate in Parliament?

They certainly have the overwhelming numbers to do it.

This could, therefore, be the LAST TIME Queenslanders have ANY chance of stopping all this from happening.

It is also, potentially, the last opportunity we may have of getting rid of all the hated mandates, border rules, business restrictions, social gathering limits and quarantine detention camps – in a single blow.

It is absolutely imperative, therefore, that we all unite together and make sure that Queensland’s public health emergency is NOT extended past its current date.
