The Queensland government is actually aware of the word “Referendum!”

Surprise, surprise! The Queensland government has actually the word “Referendum” in their political vocabulary, but they will use it only when it suits them. They can’t support Peter Wellington’s bill without a referendum, but they conveniently mandated fluoridation without a referendum. How hypocritical, two-faced and undemocratic was this? - Werner


Below are extracts from State Parliament, made by Deputy Premier & Health Minister, Paul Lucas MP, a few weeks ago. It appears that he believes that the citizens have some rights after all, but maybe he said these things just to score political points!!!! - (Thank to State President, Merilyn Haines for this information).

Might be worth an e-mail to Paul Lucas to ask if he believes in "democracy" for people who don't want to drink and bathe in fluoridated water.

Second Reading 16th September 2009

Resumed from 17 June (see p. 965), on motion of Mr. Wellington -That the bill be now read a second time

Hon. PT LUCAS (Lytton—ALP) (Deputy Premier and Minister for Health) (7.40 pm): I rise to speak to the Constitution (Fixed-Term Parliament) Amendment Bill introduced by the member for Nicklin and advise the House that the government will not be supporting this bill. The government supports the principle of fixed terms.

However, we believe this issue should be put to the people of Queensland in a referendum. We are on the record supporting a referendum on fixed four-year terms for the Queensland parliament. The length of parliamentary terms, whether they are fixed or not, are issues that the people of Queensland should determine and not the parliament by itself.

This bill seeks to fix the term of the Queensland Legislative Assembly at three years, with elections to be held on the second Saturday in March every third year. We believe that any change of this magnitude to our electoral system should not be made unless the people of Queensland ask for it. It is not for members of parliament to set our own terms without asking our electors to vote on it in a referendum, even if it is technically possible to avoid one.

For example, even if we found a loophole to allow us to legislate for four-year fixed terms without a referendum, we should not cut the people out of that decision. These are matters that go to the very heart of our democracy, that is, the way in which the people of Queensland choose their representatives.

I have no issue with the member for Nicklin’s approach to this matter. He is representing the views that he believes his constituents hold strongly. However, the government has a broader obligation to take into account the views of all Queenslanders. For example, hypothetically tomorrow we could legislate to bring in daylight saving without holding a referendum, but it would be the wrong thing to do. In Australia we see a wide variety of electoral systems operating, with significant differences……..

And here is a letter to the editor sent to the Cairns Post.

I could not believe my eyes when I read the label on the multi dose swine flu vial, that Dr Uri Scelwyn was holding when his photo was in the Cairns Post on Wednesday 30th September.

Written on the label were the words, "0.01% Thiomersal". - This is the mercury based preservative that has caused the explosion of autism around the world. No wonder the Health Department does not want to give this vaccination to children. This is supposedly banned from all vaccination. Mercury is so lethal, that it is not allowed even at one part per billion.

This is on top of the Health Department forcing Queenslanders to drink the dangerous silicofluorides in our water supplies. This poisonous chemical concoction, also contains traces of mercury, as well as other heavy metals.

What other poisons is the Health Department prescribing? A Royal Commission is needed to get to the bottom of this.

Yours sincerely,

Bill Kilvert

And so say all of us! - Werner

You've heard of 'selective hearing' haven't you? Our State Government is certainly guilty of that in regard to fluoridation - in choosing not to 'hear' the scientific evidence that shows it is neither safe nor effective. Looks like they're now practising 'selective democracy' as well - pretending they care about what electors think, when it suits their purposes.

Regarding the Swine Flu vaccination, CSL’s package insert states clearly that this vaccine is for adults 18 years of age and older – yet the Government is advising everyone over the age of 10 to get vaccinated.

The insert also states “It is not known whether these vaccines can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed” – yet the government is urging pregnant women to get vaccinated.

Do your research BEFORE you subject yourself to this vaccine, which has been rushed through without proper testing. There is a lot of credible information on the internet alleging it is unsafe.
