Premier Campbell Newman has confirmed that the Queensland government has resumed its long dormant Dalek program.
Mr Newman has revealed that money saved through cuts to arts funding and to the public sector are being devoted to the development of Daleks.
“If you are serious about law and order then Daleks are the best solution,” said Mr Newman.
Queensland’s Dalek program was originally commenced in the 1970s at the behest of then Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen. After seeing the killing machines on Doctor Who, Bjelke-Petersen ordered the construction of an army of Daleks to assist the Queensland Police and Special Branch in dealing with street marches and student protests.
The program was defunded in the early 1980s due to its high costs and the inability of Queensland scientists to master Dalek technology.
However, Premier Newman is confident that developments in science over the last thirty years mean that Bjelke-Petersen’s dream of a Dalek army for Queensland can now be realised.
“Everyone wants the bikie menace to be exterminated and my Daleks will do that.”
Mr Newman said that he hoped to fast track Dalek development by using existing government resources.
“My understanding is that the lifeforms inside the Dalek armour need to be vicious, angry and prepared to do whatever they are told,” said the Premier. “Rather than breeding these things, I’m hopeful we can just use members of the LNP instead.”
