18th October 1998.

Albert McDonald is the husband of Leneen Forde, who vacated the position of Governor of Queensland a short time ago. Her husband Albert, was subpoenaed to give information on oath to the Woods Royal Commission into Police corruption, regarding pedophilia and drugs. He was not convicted, but his reputation and character was severely damaged .

When the house he lived in, and the woman he was married to, was receiving over a million dollars of tax payer supplied personal security, the Queensland Police, under the supervision of two anti gun Parliamentary regimes, (Goss and Borbidge), supplied this man with a licence to carry a loaded pistol, on his person, for his own personal security.

When the Borbidge regime legislated in 1996 to remove the right for every other citizen in the state of Queensland to keep or use a firearm, shotgun, rifle, or pistol, for personal protection, they still left Albert with his concealable licence.

When the Queensland Police service was busy refusing elderly pensioners applications to keep a single shot 22 to fight off home invaders, they showed no mercy or exceptions. As they gloated, proud veterans of the first world war with tears in their eyes, watched their 303's being crushed. They investigated cases where pensioners, who had been beaten with lumps of wood, whilst their property, the only thing which equalizes brawn, firearms, had been removed from them. Enforced by the Queensland Police service.

They knew that Albert was okay, he could look after himself, he wouldn't have to clutch for the phone, dial 000, and listen to it ring out unanswered, while home invaders broke the back door down. No, Albert was safe, he had a million dollars worth of security at home, and a concealable pistol in his belt to defend himself with.

The worst hypocrisy though, is Leneen Forde herself. What did she do with her conscience when she was giving assent to the new weapons act in 1996? It removed that right of self defence with any weapon from every other citizen in the state. She was comfortable with the thought that hubby, Albert, had his shooter on him, and could defend her or himself, but she didn't mind taking that right from everyone else.

Note. Leneen Forde would have been in breach of the "letters patents" from Her Majesty Elizabeth the II, where it states that the Governor may not, give assent to legislation which breaches treaties imposed on their Majesties, or laws repugnant to the laws of England. These are treaties and laws which the Monarch swears to uphold in her Coronation Oath, and are the main protection for all of our inherited rights. The Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights were imposed on the Monarchs and their successors forever. The Bill of Rights is quite specific, that good Protestants can keep arms suitable for their defence. The Catholics of course already had the right. Leneen Forde had been informed by myself, and many other Queenslanders, that she would be going beyond her powers by giving assent to this act. She ignored them.

If we allow the Governor to ignore the whole foundation of law in this country, the Constitutional documents, then all your rights are at risk. The right to life, to property, to freedom of speech, to travel freely, and to live privately without government intrusion. All these guarantee's are gone forever.
