Surely they are exaggerating? How many groups were actually involved in the discussion?

Which all begs the question - is there ANYONE who thinks this is a good idea?

I can't say for certain. But I do note that NSW Police were not part of the working group that indicated its overwhelming opposition to the change. Change that is proceeding despite that overwhelming opposition.

Which begs the question - who exactly is running this show?
