head of disgrace resigns
Yesterday's big news: NSW Premier Morris Iemma resigned, or to describe the situation more accurately, Morris Iemma has been forced to resign as New South Wales Premier after sacking his colourful Treasurer Michael Costa.
Remember the APEC Sydney lock down just a year ago? With the excuse of protect US President George W. Bush, then Premier Morris Iemma did not hesitate to give disgraceful unnecessary unprecedented untouchable power to NSW Police.
Morris Iemma promised it would only be "one off". He lied.
In July this year, with the excuse of World Youth Day, Morris Iemma did not hesitate to even more power to the authorities. These laws give absolute discretion to authorised persons, which include police and volunteers who haven't received appropriate training, to give directions to the members of public if they think that the member of the public is annoying. Further, the mentioned powers were imposed by the Government led by Morris Iemma without going through the Parliament which represent people.
Bear in mind there there were no clear definition (in laws) on what qualifies as annoying. In plain words, people can be fine for anything those untrained religious volunteers deem annoy. Without a doubt, many religious people are very narrow minded.
Thanks to the common sense of the court and the No To Pope Coalition who challenged it.those unethical and disgraceful powers were declared unconstitutional by the court and hence invalid.
Morris Iemma enjoyed assigning unethical disgraceful powers to police for APEC last year, and this year, he dared to assign unconstitutional powers to untrained religious volunteers.
Shame on you Morris Iemma.
