The Australian Constitution as It Is Actually Written

Author(s): Graham L Paterson


"The continued usage of the Australian Constitution Act (UK) by the Australian Governments and the judiciary is a confidence trick of monstrous proportions played upon the Australian people with the intent of maintaining power.... Authority over the Australian Constitution Act lies not with the Australian government, nor with the Australian people. It rests solely with the UK. Only they have the authority to repeal this legislation...." - The late Professor G. Clements, UK QC and emeritus Professor in Law at Cambridge University This book is the first of its type to be written in the last 114 years. Nobody has done so since Quick and Garran in 1901. The British Colony of Australia Act (1900) represents Australia's primary law. It is still used today as our Constitution. That Act controls all our lives. The British Government added the first eight parts of this Act and the ninth part is the draft Constitution. That draft was changed by the British Government before they would allow the Act to be presented to their Parliament. This amended Constitution was never presented to the "people" of Australia for their approval. The document is steeped in nineteenth century colonial thinking, and has never been brought up to date. It remains antiquated and bears very little relationship to the way we are governed. It is a myth that the referendums in 1899 and 1900 asked the "people" to approve the draft Constitution. The few selected "people" were asked if they wanted "union of the Colonies or disunion." The acceptance of the original draft Constitution was taken for granted. The draft Constitution was never about democracy or Australian sovereignty. Another of the myths this book debunks is that the Constitution can only be changed by a referendum of the Australian people. The fifty colonial representatives; referred to as our "the founding fathers," saw fit to include thirty nine provisions allowing Parliament to change the Constitution any time the ruling party wished. They have done this so many times in the last 114 years that no one has kept count. Read this book and find out why this primary law of the land is never taught in our schools, and how it controls your life. Publisher's website: http: //
