Labor’s Office of Independent Assessor terrorises local councils shutting down free speech

by Jim O’Toole, Townsville bureau

A star chamber for recalcitrant local government councillors and mayors was legislated in 2018 by Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to prevent the voice of grass roots democracy being heard.

This is the ‘independent assessor’ Kathleen Florian in charge of the star chamber who can make life hell for any grass roots representative voicing the concerns of their constituents. Ms Florian is a barrister-at-law and an investigative law specialist with an impeccable record in the investigation and prosecution of organised and major crime, corruption and professional misconduct complaints over the past 26 years.
Before her appointment as the Independent Assessor, Ms Florian most recently held the position of Executive Director of Investigations at the Office of the Health Ombudsman. This role was responsible for the oversight of investigations into the most serious allegations of professional misconduct by health practitioners in Queensland.

Regional councils have been reduced to rubber stamps for the government of the day or more importantly beholden to the dictates of their unelected Chief Executive Officer.

Many CEO’s are simply the mouthpiece of the ruling government and have been installed under the Local Government Act to control councils and to ensure they stay within the current political narrative.

Elected councilors have virtually no say and can be overruled by the state government at any time.

Originally designed by the corrupt former Labor Premier, Peter Beattie, the Local Government Act 2009 was introduced by his successor Anna Bligh. The act stripped regional and city councils of being able to represent the wishes of ratepayers and placed councils under the strict supervision of the ruling government..

In order to keep elected councillors as an expensive irrelevancy and to keep their mouths shut, in 2018 Premier Palaszczuk introduced the Office of the Independent Assessor.

This organisation functions as a star chamber which can censor or sack a councillor or mayor who criticises the government or any of its policies.

A recent example was when Barcaldine Regional Council Mayor Sean Dillon made a career-ending statement that he didn’t want the vaccine rollout to go wrong.

It proves how touchy the precious Premier is about her genocidal program of the mRNA jab being forced upon the Queensland population.

Mayor Dillon was charged with “potential misconduct” after raising concerns about the Central West Hospital and the health service’s planned vaccination rollout.

It was alleged that Cr Dillon made comments “that could be considered as detrimental to public confidence in a health service provider.”

During discussions at a public council meeting Cr Dillon raised concerns his entire western community could not be vaccinated in the few days allocated.

Here we have a Mayor actually supporting the deadly shots yet the dogmatic ventriloquist dummy for the Labor government has crucified a potential ally.

The Local Government Association, to its credit has supported the berated Mayor and vowed to take the case all the way to the High Court.

The OIA is terrifying councillors and mayors who have found it wise to get any intended public comments vetted by their CEO’s before uttering the time of day.

Perhaps Ms Florian, as a former investigator of the Office of the Health Ombudsman should use her talents in prosecuting all the health department officials and doctors who have knowingly inoculated more than a million patients with a dangerous mRNA spike protein toxin, including the politicians who supported it.

The communist state has well and truly engulfed Queensland as we have seen with mobile hit squads of retired police  about to raid pubs and coffee shops grabbing unvaccinated patrons after December 17.

We await in earnest for the SS hitmen to pick on the wrong group in a pub.

What will it take for regional councils to push back against the spreading tyranny of the Queensland Labor Party and their masters, the communists of the United Nations?

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Interesting it’s after the 17th dec, wonder what they’ve heard about dan’s date with myrtle-ford? If he goes down, which legally, he has to, it will spend out shock waves around the states and territories. Spend out? Sent. It will force morrison, the vic governor, who’s made herself useless via nepotism. Any 1st year Australian Constitutional law student, could tell you, Andrews has broken federal and state Constitutional laws, both the Federal Constitution, and the Victorian State Constitution,, so too has Morrison, actually the whole of the Australian Parliament, because there is no “Constitutional Act” for a *Prime Minister* – the party chose THAT, NOT, “We, The People”.

    *Section 109* – this goes on to state that, where there is a conflict between a State law and a Commonwealth law, then the latter shall prevail. Remember this next time someone tries to fine you based on a speed detection device that doesn’t comply with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act – which is, of course, a Commonwealth Act.

  2. We know they are unconstitutional so are the Covid mandates. Ed

  3. I understand where you’re coming from, however the Constitution does not have any provision for a 3rd layer of Government.

    And so it is all smoke and mirrors.

    All persons within a local government (whether “elected” or not) are simply employees of the Department of Local Government within your state.

    And hence the government of the day controls everything, just like it does every other ministerial department.

    In the case of most daily business-as-usual, the “real” government will do nothing, and sit idly by … but when it really matters, then the Minister will step in, on behalf of the Parliament, Cabinet, Executive Council or Governor. The EC and Governor very rarely act in public, but rather through others, behind the scenes. It’s the way of the old British Empire.

    So all that a local government election actually is is another form of employee selection process, whereby the person selected is chosen for the job based on i) their popularity in the community, ii) perceived adherence to a particular philosophy or iii) membership of a particular group, such as a political party.


  4. I hope palaszczuk listens to her own mandates when she fakes having the jab when she can’t possibly of had with the cap still on it what a Hypocrite she also should be made to follow her own rules.


  5. Actually…if you look up ICLEI…you’ll find that many councils across Australia have already signed themselves up to UN control. The UN climate control has been in place since 1992…but we were joined in 1945. And before that in 1927 to the League of Nations. All done by labour thinking small brains! What’s hard to understand…is WHY it’s INLY been Ann Bressington/ex pollie to report this…and ZERO other pollies??


  6. The root of all our Local Council problems is UN partner ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives).
    It’s the unspoken higher circle in LG.

    “The leading network of local and regional governments “ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability” has announced its new leadership following a one-year global democratic election process.”

    “ICLEI Global Executive Committee 2021-2024 – Regional seats of Oceania is Amanda Stone, Councillor, City of Yarra, Australia.”

    “ICLEI Global Executive Committee 2021-2024 – Portfolio: Urban research on sustainability challenge solutions is Dr. Cathy Oke, Enterprise Senior Fellow in Informed Cities, Connected Cities Lab, Faculty of Architecture Building and Planning, Melbourne School of Design, Melbourne, Australia”

    “Special Advisor to the Global Executive Committee is Amanda Stone, Councillor, City of Yarra, Australia. Advisor to: Nature, Biodiversity and Ecosystem Restoration portfolio”

    This Global agenda just overrides the local communities. Around our own community we look in dismay at the huge Chinese style towers replacing our surburban homes. Nothing is ‘sacred’ to the globalists and their initiates.


  7. So who “owns” these government corporations? Who is listed as the Officers and Shareholders of the corporations?


  8. Every Australian govt dept is on there. Ed


  9. Yeppoon did the push back and they are helping others council areas do likewise. We just don’t hear about it, it’s not on Murdoch Media, of course. But I assure you it’s going on
    I remember well “the Flying Squads” and that is definitely not what we need and we should not engage with them either. Just get a body cam off Ebay and record them, at a distance. My council corporation I found on Dunn and Bradstreet business look up, along with Qld Police, in fact even the AFP, they are there to see.


  10. HU-man rights United Nations law is inconsistent with protestant law 1688 bill of rights and UN wrongs being illegally inserted into
    english, australian , New Zealand law against the will of the people
    of 1688
    See you tube Kate Greenchair


  11. They need t be attacked commercially, via my liability video, which has already been posted here. And, being Freemasons, generally, the politicians who are in the Parliament who are lawyers (and lawyers are, generally, Masons) need to be called out and made to resign. This is an old one, but some of them are still in the Parliaments, Michaelia Cash being one of them:,5652 The presence of lawyers in Parliament, over many decades, means that all laws, legislation and Bills passed by the Parliaments are invalid, null and void. I stand to be corrected, by any other “learned colleagues” around the place. And theEditor might care to put up the Masonic plaque decorating the outside wall of Richard Marles’s electorate office in Geelong, for that matter?


  12. I doubt the Queensland Gestapo will have the bottle to do their thing within any mining community in Queensland, as it will become ugly, very very ugly.


  13. For Marxist Leninist states that enact genocides upon their populations, it would stand to reason they would have the local council under control. In Masonry they fold their hands across their genitals as a signal to their fellow Grand Worshipfuls : “all bases covered.”

    For a genocide, the local council is a chokepoint they absolutely have to secure and it looks like Palachook and the George St Cabal have found and positioned their Comrade Political Correctness Officer under the Masonic hand cross.

    Like all Comrade PC Officers, Comrade Florian will place no credence whatever in the quaint idea that jurisprudence like Geneva Conventions, Nuremburg etc applies to her. Newflash. This jurisprudence does apply to you Comrade.


  14. Peeling back the onion. I did not know this. Unbelievable but after what these genocidal criminals have revealed of themselves to date, not surprised. It ties in with all their other activities.


  15. Hi Editor Dick


  16. Well she certainly looks pleased with herself, must enjoy her work.


  17. Don’t you just looooove the smell of a fresh new police state being built in Palashchook’s Queensland!? In McGowan’s West Australia. In Andrews Victoria. In Marshall’s South Australia. In Gunner’s Northern Territory.

    The only place we don’t have one is in Scumo Morrison’s Australia, that will have to wait until the Fed election is done and dusted.


  18. Please listen to the wisdom of self-confessed conspiracy theorist gumboot lawyer :
