Abstract

The 2012 state election landslide for the Liberal National Party has had significant consequences for minority groups in Queensland. The Premier’s election night declaration that his government would make the State a better place to live for all Queenslanders has been pushed to one side, as the Attorney General has set about ‘levelling the playing field so that the laws suit the majority and not the minority’. This article takes a critical look at the government’s legislative agenda, placing its reforms in a historical context to illustrate that ea.ch reform is a step backward that unravels centuries of gradually calculated reform aimed at protecting human rights.
