Labour and the Greens keep claiming that you need the Attorney-General to sign off on any Gay Conversion prosecution as if that’s a safety valve!
Look, this is either a feel good woke virtue signal that you never intend to actually use – hence the AG sign off, or even more horrifically, Labour and the Greens are actually saying these will become political prosecutions where the Police and the Crown are sidelined in the pursuit of law by a politicized Attorney-General.
Which one is it? Woke virtue signal no one will use or politicized prosecutions?
Isn’t it funny how we on the Left go on and on and on and on about how violent and counter productive prison is yet the moment it’s an issue we feel passionate about, like Gay Conversion, we suddenly get all Caligula revenge fantasy on it.
Let’s not forget the Ministry of a Health actually advised against criminalizing gay conversion and instead suggested more education.
We can’t quantify how many of these Gay exorcisms occur, we are talking about imprisoning people for 5 years and can’t exempt puberty blocking parents because it will impact abortion laws.
Holding up the Attorney-General sign off as a safety valve for this poorly thought out legislation is really not good enough.
This should have been sorted well before Select Committee and it feels like another woke knee jerk similar to their poorly thought out Hate Speech laws.
This is political mismanagement at its most needless.
