We’ve Always Opposed Bans on Bull Bars

The only reason anybody is talking a bull bars is because the National Party tried banning them.

Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party MLC Robert Borsak accused the National Party of being dishonest with their campaign against banning bull bars, because they proposed the ban in the first place.

“The ban on five-post bull bars was originally proposed by National Party Roads Minister Duncan Gay,” Mr Borsak said.

“The only reason there was an extension on enforcing the ban on five post bull bars in the first place is because of pressure from my Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party colleague Robert Brown. 

“We've always fought against banning bull bars. Our party's founder John Tingle even stopped a bull bar ban on the Parliament's StaySafe Committee in the 1990s.

“In the Murray and Cootamundra by-elections, the National Party are getting desperate so they’re adopting some of our policies.

“National Party candidates are even saying they will petition their own party against a ban on bull bars that the National Party themselves started.”

“They're in Government now and can stop the ban now - but the truth is that they don't really want to.

“Rural NSW deserves better.”
