Beefy minders shadow Premier, Bleijie during walk

PREMIER Campbell Newman and Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie may be keeping mum about their ramped up personal security, but at yesterday's Walk for Daniel, it was impossible to miss their beefy shadows, complete with curly earpieces and steely glares.

The pair appeared cool, calm and collected, and free of an entourage - until you looked three metres behind them.

Since the LNP's crackdown on criminal bikie gangs, Mr Newman and Mr Bleijie have reportedly been the target of threats and as a result, ramped up their personal security.

While Mr Bleijie has not personally spoken of the threats, earlier this week, Mr Newman confirmed the reports.

"There have been threats made. That's as far as I'm going," Mr Newman said on Sunday.

Mr Bleijie was unable to disclose the details of his security measures. However, he stood by the State Government's anti-bikie measures.

"We've taken a very strong position on criminal motorcycle gangs and sex offenders and we are determined to push through," he said.

"We want to make sure Queensland is the safest place to raise a child and we're going to do everything we can to protect kids in this state."

When Mr Newman was asked how the past two weeks had been for him and his family, he said, "I wouldn't be talking about stuff like that."
