Tim­ing raises doubt

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

THE Ban­di­dos yes­ter­day ques­tioned the tim­ing of Tas­ma­nia’s new laws.

“Is it sim­ply co­in­ci­den­tal that this leg­is­la­tion is en­acted the same week as the dra­co­nian Anti-Protest leg­is­la­tion is on the agenda,’’ na­tional li­ai­son for the Ban­dido Mo­tor­cy­cle Club Grey Nor­man said.

He said mo­tor­cy­cle clubs would never be “leg­is­lated out of ex­is­tence”.

“This leg­is­la­tion in­tro­duced by state au­thor­i­ties will only drive MCs fur­ther into ob­scu­rity, thus im­pact­ing on non-MCs by being tarred by the same sus­pi­cious brush,’’ he said.

“To loosely la­bel all MCs as being bad is a nar­row view, much in the same way as to as­sume all po­lice are good.

“Will Green­peace be next?

“If we don’t stand for some things, we will fall for any­thing.”
