Tim Harrington, Lennox Head.
With the Greens, The Law Society, the Bar Association and the Council for Civil Liberties condemning strengthening of anti terrorism legislation, it shows just how important the required changes are to the public.
It is the public that are at risk, not those organisations condemning the legislation.
And then to suggest that the new laws be examined from an independent legal perspective may have some merit, however to nominate The Law Society, The Bar Association and the Council for Civil Liberties as that independent body is totally counterproductive.
Those three organisations would be the least independent group possible.
Almost their entire being is to prevent terrorists from being convicted &/or remain free on parole, without the slightest consideration given for the well being of the general public.
It is their (the legal profession) life blood and income.
