The Police Federation of Australia has labelled the conduct of Liberal-Democrat senator David Leyonhjelm as “beneath contempt”.  This comes after video footage emerged of Leyonhjelm telling a protest rally that police “… can lie on the side of the road and bleed to death”.

The PFA has written to both the Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition calling on them to ensure their parties don’t preference Senator Leyonhjelm at the next election. Leyonhjelm’s position in the Senate was made possible ONLY because of preference deals done by the major parties.

The PFA, on behalf of its 60,000 members, will be doing all it can to ensure that Senator Leyonhjelm will not be a member of the next federal parliament.
