    Every Bill to Parliament, every Gazette seems to bee witth flaws that need correcton. Even RTI seems inconsistent with 110 otheer statutes. Can someone say who is responsible for this - Each Ministry, Legal Draughtsman, AG or Justice Minister or the whole damn lot in the Cabinet.

    There are only 2 options. Either laws and ordinances are issued without thinking about their consequences, or the responsible persons simply lack brain substance.

    Please do not compromise all riders safety over security weakness and idiotic ideas of dumb police and MPs. Instead, improve your level of intelligence to stop crime happening.
