Opposition should have been more proactive on the Enabling Bill, it was all foreseable

August 2, 2008

I hate to say I told you so, but to me this was quite obvious. The opposition could have spent the last month telling the Government it should not provide any eleventh hour, non-democratic surprises and lead the news, rather than reacting to them. At the time I was told that it was opposition bashing and I even responded. Moreover, the opposition should have also warned that no law should have any of the matters contained in the Constitutional referendum which was rejected. I understand the laws include many things that were part of the changes proposed in the referendum.

If a blogger observing events saw it coming, where the hell were the opposition leaders? Or what were they doing?

And now the 26 laws have become the law of the land, even if nobody knows their content.
