Why would anyone expect anything different in Queensland.
Quite apart from racing, there is frequent cause to think there is something rotten in the sunshine state, generally -- something akin to an authoritarian regime.
Coupling that with 'racing', where stewards, nationally, run obscenely 'lese majeste' regimes, any one in their authoritarian line of fire can be shot at their discretion.
Ordinary punters need to be wary lest speaking frankly be deemed a lese-majeste offense: i.e. --- an offense violating the dignity of a ruler as the representative of a sovereign power (RQL) and a detraction from, or affront to, dignity or importance of appointed superiors (its stewards).
