Opposition Senator, Lambert Brown, says Opposition Senators are only supporting the States of Public Emergency because the government has nothing else in its crime-fighting apparatus.

Senator Brown argues that no one feels safer during the special security measures.

He says of particular concern is the number of teachers who’re being killed.

Senator Brown noted that the dates of the three SOEs are being synchronized to end on April 25.

He questions if this is a clear sign that a General Election will be called sometime after April 25.
