Absolute rubbish😤

According to the Palaszczuk Labor budget released this week, the state government will stop reimbursing councils for collecting rubbish. Beyond this year councils will be forced to pass on the costs associated with the state governments waste levy – effectively putting a tax on every wheelie bin across Queensland.

In Metropolitan areas, ratepayers could expect to pay an additional $88. That figure could be in excess of $100 in regional Queensland.

If only we did not need defamation laws. If only people could focus on the issues that are being debated and discussed rather than playing the person. Sadly, people have been making inappropiate comments about others since the dawn of time.

Today in Parliament we discussed the Defamation Amendment Bill 2021. The amendments will:

✅ discourage and prevent expensive litigation for minor or insignificant claims;
✅ otherwise encourage the early resolution of defamation claims;
✅ ensure that the law of defamation does not place unreasonable limits on the freedom of expression by encouraging open and transparent reporting and public discussion here in Queensland; and
✅ modernise provisions to apply more appropriately to digital publications
