Government Ministers to be forced to justify adding toxins to Queensland's drinking water

Three Queensland Ministers including Premier Anna Bligh, who, in 2008, rushed through legislation to enable the addition of fluoride and other toxic substances to Queensland's drinking water against well-founded scientifically based objections, will be forced to properly investigate those objections and should they refuse to repeal the legislation, justify that decision before the Supreme Court.

Courier Mail misreports water recycling to demand early election

On 28 December Queensland's Courier Mail called for early state elections alleging that Anna Bligh's back down before "uninformed agitators" in shelving its plans to introduce water recycling has shown her government to be "timid" and "tired". However, the evidence shows that Bligh's backflip was soundly based. So, what is the real reason for the Courier Mail's own backflip on the question of early elections?

Armistice Day, 90 years on our rights are in jeopardy.

It now seems these sacrifices were in vain, because in Queensland our present government is a dictatorship. One person, Anna Bligh, forcibly medicates us through our water supply with fluoride chemicals and we shall have water that has been sourced from sewerage whether we like it or not.
