PShift (4ZZZ fm 102.1 Noon on Fridays) interviewed the attorney general, Jarrod Bleijie, about the rise to power of Vlad’s gang and his attempt to put its leader in jail for 400 years. In introducing the toughest laws in the world, Vlad’s nemesis Bleijie seems to have taken Monty Python’s satire, the Piranha Brothers, to heart.
Interview with Attorney-General, Jarrod Bleijie.
PShift: What do you say to the Vlad legislation being a smoke screen for the workers compensation and draconian Industrial Relations changes?
Bleijie: Unions in this state are out of control, they are no better than organised criminals.
PShift: Can the riot laws in this legislation be used against other groups?
Bleijie: You’re right they can. Riot is a declared offence under Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment Act 2013 (VLAD for short).
PShift: Lex Wotton was done for riot on Palm Island and subsequently muzzled from speaking to the media by Parole laws. Do you agree with that?
Bleijie: Of course. Lex Wotton was convicted of riot, he forfeited all his rights to speak to the media when he did that. Human Rights are a privilege not to be enjoyed by violent offenders.
PShift: Does the Vlad legislation make it easier to jail organised blackfellas?
Bleijie: If they break the law. That mob at Musgrave Park had better watch out. Especially at G20.
PShift: You mean the Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Tent Embassy?
Bleijie: Yes, and any of their associates involved in crime.
PShift: Hmm … (mumbles) you’ve got to be a one-term wonder.
Bleijie: What did you say!?
PShift: I said you’ve just got to wonder … you know won’t the Vlad’s mob just go underground and wait out the media storm?
Bleijie: There is nowhere to hide for vicious, lawless, associates of Vlad.
PShift: Whose idea was it to name the act after ‘Vlad the Impaler‘ of Transylvannia?
Bleijie: That’s just how it turned out.
PShift: Are you sure? Wasn’t Vlad a devout Christian?
Bleijie: Keep religion out of it, the law is to protect innocent citizens from lawless Vlad’s mob.
PShift: By using laws invoke the practice of impaling your enemies? By telling the world Queensland is prepared to institute excessive cruelty through mandatory jailing Vlad’s gang? How many have the laws jailed so far?
PShift: Is it possible that by passing the Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment Act 2013 that Vlad’s mob will emerge tougher and armed, sort of modern day Piranha Brothers.?
Bleijie: I don’t know the Piranha Brothers but i do not think so.
PShift: If I were a cop dealing with Vlad’s people, I would be worried by this turn of events.
Bleijie: Police have no reason to fear.
PShift: Do you have any ‘vicious, lawless, associates’ as friends?
Ryan Haddrick: I think we should leave it there, minister?
PShift: That was the Attorney General’s chief-of-staff, Ryan Haddrick, he gets $2,000 a day for serving on the commission of inquiry into child protection. An inquiry the Attorney General himself set up. I think we should leave it there, listeners. It seems police are immune from Vlad the Impaler. I suppose the lesson is to know who are your friends and to know who are your enemies.
PShift wishes to thank the news crew at Brisbane Line 4ZZZ (fm 102.1) for the following stories.
An in-depth look at this week’s busy parliament

We decided to take a good look at these new laws and report what we could find.
