(Oz-Gov-Corruption) Australia's CommonLaw Constitution

Dear Fellow Australians,

During the second half of the 19th century, a group of Australian colonialist, led by Sir Henry Parkes, wanted to unite these colonies into one Federation. In the 1890's a series of Conferences and Referenda resulted in the "DRAFT OF A BILL To Constitute the Commonwealth of Australia 1897".

I obtained a copy of this document several years ago from the very co-operative staff at the National Archives who faxed the material to me on the same day that I phoned them (they said normally they had to receive a written request and any reply usually takes 4 - 6 weeks).

The document has at the very top of the first page, and above the Royal Coat of Arms, the words, "Copy of Federal Constitution under the Crown, framed and approved by the Australasian Federal Convention, at Adelaide, South Australia, 22nd Mrach to 23rd April, 1897. E.G. BLACKMORE, Clerk C.C. KINGSTON, President.".

It is 29 pages in length with 121 sections (not 128) to Covering Clause 8 (not 9) which is titled "THE CONSTITUTION".

I then visited the State Library to again photocopy this "Draft Bill" and another 50+ pages of related documents such as "MR. CHAMBERLAIN TO THE GOVERNORS OF NEW SOUTH WALES, VICTORIA, QUEENSLAND, SOUTH AUSTRALIA AND TASMANIA (Sent 12 midnight, April 5, 1900) TELEGRAM", "LIEUT.-GOVERNOR SIR JOHN MADDEN (VICTORIA) TO MR. CHAMBERLAIN. (Received 6.45 p.m., April 22, 1900) TELEGRAM", "MEMORANDUM OF THE AUSTRALIAN DELEGATES (EXCEPT QUEENSLAND) April 27th, 1900 (from) EDMUND BARTON, ALFRED DEAKIN, C.C. KINGSTON, P.O. FISH.", "MEMORANDUM IN REPLY TO MEMORANDUM OF DELEGATES OF 27TH APRIL", etc., etc., "MEMORANDUM OF THE OBJECTIONS OF HER MAJESTY'S GOVERNMENT TO SOME PROVISIONS OF THE DRAFT COMMONWEALTH BILL", etc., etc., "AMENDMENTS IN COMMITTEE Notice given 21st May", etc., etc..

Of course, the alterations to the Draft Bill were never brought back to Australia in 1900, for another Referendum, and the Amended Bill was passed by the UK Parliament with Queen Victoria giving it Royal Assent on 9th July, 1900. That is: it became an Act of the United Kingdom Parliament. This was a STATUTE LAW (passed by a Parliament), as compared to the "Draft of a Bill To Constitute the Commonwealth of Australia 1897" which was and remains a COMMON LAW, having been passed by a Referendum.

Because (as explained in a previous email) King George V gave Australia the status of an independent sovereign Nation for the Australian Prime Minister "Billy" Hughes to sign the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, the King effectively disallowed the UK Statute which had held Australia "under the Crown of the United Kingdom".

However, the original Common Law of the "Draft of a Bill To Constitute the Commonwealth of Australia 1897" has never been cancelled by Referendum and remains in force.

Both the Common Law Constitution and the defunct Statute Law Constitution vested executive power in the Queen (ie: in the Crown of the UK), with the Queen appointing the Governor-General as her representative, and required that Judges be appointed by the Governor-General-in-Council. These situations are are no longer tenable....nor have they been since 1919.

Concealment of these truths is nothing less than Treachery.

Yours sincerely,
John Wilson.
