This is UNBELIEVABLE! Victoria, Australia is governed by a dictator whose name is DANIEL ANDREWS! Victoria is a CCP state simply put. Unbelievable that this could occur in a supposedly free democracy!
‘Who leads the way in Australia when it comes to hating on Christians and Christianity – someone who does so regularly, habitually, and as a matter of course? One could think of plenty of likely candidates here. But we can certainly nominate one Victorian politician who has turned anti-Christian bigotry into an art form.
I refer of course to Australia’s most flagrant misotheist and Christophobe, Dan Andrews. This socialist left premier has spent most of his adult life waging war on Christianity and its beliefs and values. The list of his many hateful actions against the faith gets longer each passing month, and I have regularly written about this antichrist leader.
Too often I have had to document his many acts of infamy and villainy over the years.
Whether it is the radical abortion and euthanasia laws he has pushed through; his undying support of the diabolical “safe schools” programs and the like; his promotion of all things homosexual and trans; his attempts to throw into prison praying Christians who dare to help those struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction; and even his war on Christmas carols – to name a few examples – this guy is Pharaoh, Herod and Nero rolled into one.
Just how far can this guy go in his anti-Christian zeal? What has possessed him to keep this war against Christianity on the top of his priority list? Just why does he feel he must personally destroy the faith of millions of Victorians? Needless to say, I would have answers for all of those questions!
But consider his latest ugly outrage: his ongoing war against Australia’s – and the world’s – greatest ever tennis player, Margaret Court. Of course she has been under attack for years now, for the simple reason that she dares to be a Christian, dares to have a church in Perth that is faithful to the gospel, and is committed to standing up for biblical values in a pagan world.
So the hate-filled secular left have been hating on her quite some time, and have even sought to get the Margaret Court Arena renamed in Melbourne. On and on it goes. Their vile poisonous hatred knows no bounds. And Andrews is leading the pack here.
The most recent episode involves the news that she is about to be awarded an Order of Australia honour on Australia Day. That has got Andrews and the other Christophobes foaming at the mouth. As one news item put it:
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said he [was] “quite sick” of discussing Ms Court after being asked about the backlash toward her during a press conference on Friday. “I’m quite sick of talking about that person every summer,” he said.
“I do not support that but I don’t give out those gongs, that’s not a matter for me, that’s for others.” Andrews stated Court’s views were “disgraceful and hurtful”, adding they “cost lives”. “Calling out bigotry is always important. This bigoted quackery costs lives.”
Dan Andrews just could not contain his irrational hatred. As he said on Twitter:
“I don’t want to give this person’s disgraceful, bigoted views any oxygen. But when others insist on rewarding them with this country’s highest honour – I think it’s worth saying again: Grand Slam wins don’t give you some right to spew hatred and create division. Nothing does.”
Good grief. Talk about a deplorable rant filled with falsehoods and furphies. Talk about showing your true colours. For leftist thugs like Andrews, those who dare to hold opposing points of view are not allowed to speak. Freedom of speech is only for those who hold the “correct” positions on contentious issues. All others must just sit down and shut up. Thanks for that strong stand for freedom and democracy Dan.
And believing what the overwhelming majority of mankind has always believed throughout human history is not bigotry. To simply affirm the truth that marriage is between a man and a woman is not spewing hate. You are the one spewing hate Andrews. You are the one causing division.
Court has done more good for more people – including homosexuals – than Andrews has ever done. Her church food distribution program alone – which serves everyone without partiality – has provided so much help to so many. Court loves all people and wishes the best for them. She even wishes the best for Andrews and prays for him.
And for Andrews to claim that her views were putting people’s lives at risk was utterly bizarre. Indeed, that is a bit rich coming from a guy who is directly responsible for causing the deaths of over 800 innocent people in his spectacular failure to manage the corona crises and the hotel quarantine programme.
Court is doing all she can to help save people’s lives – physically and spiritually. But all Andrews can do is keep pushing his ugly hatred, animosity and bigotry. What a loathsome political leader he is. As Sky News host Rowan Dean said about his remarks:
“In the petty, petulance stakes, nothing of course could match the spoilt, meanspirited, arrogant, virtue-signally narcissism of the premier of Victoria parading in front of his sycophantic press groupies.”
Of course Andrews was not alone in this hateful, bigoted reaction – there are plenty of other Christophobes out there who have been just as bad in their comments. Hardcore God-hater Phillip Adams was also quick to condemn her: “Margaret Court gets an AC – Australia’s top gong – in next week’s Honours List? Far worse than Bettina Arndt’s AM. Or Tony’s knighthood for the Duke. A disgraceful, shameful, tone deaf decision.”
Lesbian activist Magda Szubanksi was quick to comment: “Largely, to be honest, I think she’s irrelevant. We have marriage equality now. There are still many things that need to be worked on … but really I think let her wither on the vine.”
And then fake Christian Father Rod Bower of Gosford Anglican had this to say on his infamous outdoor signpost: “When homophobia is honoured everyone s dishonoured.” Give it a rest Rod. One day you will stand before the Lord to give an account of how you have for so long dishonoured God by your apostasy.
Other Labor big wigs also chimed in with their venom. Anthony Albanese said this: “Margaret Court has already been honoured for her tennis prowess. She’s already an Officer of the Order of Australia. I think it’s clear for everyone to see that making her a Companion of the Order of Australia has nothing to do with tennis.”
Labor Shadow Health Minister Chris Bowen agreed: “(Ms Court has) caused great hurt and anguish for many, many Australians and in my very strong view have not reflected mutual respect and respect for people’s beliefs and respect for people’s sexuality that is an important part of being a modern Australian.”
Wow, the haters sure are gonna hate. But pride of place certainly goes to Andrews. His demonic contempt for this wonderful woman of God is just so frightful to behold. And he always carries on like this when anyone dares to stand for biblical truth and values.
Just like Bower will one day face the one true and living God, so too will Andrews and his ilk. They need to repent now before it is too late. Keep them in your prayers. They sure need it.’https://goodsauce.news/calling-out-australias-most-shameless-christophobe/
‘I grew up in Sri Lanka during a time of civil war. Anyone who criticised the Sinhalese-dominated government disappeared. And anyone who criticised the Tamil rebels was assassinated. So we all learned to keep our mouths shut.
In September 1991, I changed nationalities. I swore allegiance to Australia at a citizenship ceremony in Parramatta Park. During that ceremony, I delivered a speech where I committed myself, as one of those who come from “beyond the seas”, to “advance Australia fair”.
Migrants like me love Australia because “we are young and free”. And many of us come from countries which are not free – where deviating from the approved political opinion is punished, therefore there’s no free speech. Public speech, in countries like the Sri Lanka of my childhood, was costly. It could cost you your life.
And it’s precisely that love of freedom, and my desire to advance Australia fair, that makes me worried about the Victorian government’s Change or Suppression Bill 2020.
The bill aims “to ensure that all” LGBT+ people “are able to live authentically and with pride” and “to denounce and give statutory recognition to the serious harm caused” by practices which suggest that “a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity” is in any way “broken”.
Nobody who opposes this bill is seeking to harm people who identify as LGBT+. The problem with this bill is the its definitions and prohibitions are so broad, it potentially criminalises any suggestion that sexuality has an objective order and that discovering and conforming to that order could be healthy for individuals, families, and society as a whole.
Most of human civilisation has, throughout history, believed that human sexuality is not a matter of personal preference, but possesses an objective order. Not all cultures agree on what that healthy pattern is. And not everyone within that society lives according to that healthy pattern. But they agree that it exists. And that talking about it, trying to discover it, and helping each other live according to it, is good.
This bill denounces that kind of belief, and prohibits and suppresses talking about it. This bill is on the wrong side of history. It seeks to criminalise something that has historically made human civilisation civil and humane.
Therefore, this bill is not actually progressive. It takes us backwards, into a dark age where public speech is costly and deviating from the approved political opinion gets punished.
LGBT+ activists often speak about “authenticity” and “pride”, and often accuse people who hold conservative values – especially religious people, and within that, especially Christians – as “harming” them. They’re welcome to do that. That’s an application of free speech.
And under conditions of free speech, social conservatives, religious people – including Christians – can talk back. We’re allowed to defend ourselves against those accusations of harm. And explain why we think healthy sexuality is not a matter of personal preference but possesses an objective order. And invite all people – including LGBT+ people – to willingly join us in living that sexuality because they’ve been persuaded that it’s right and good.
But by being an instrument of law, this bill takes away the right to talk back. If this bill becomes law, any assertion that healthy sexuality is ordered, not a matter of personal preference, could cost money or land you in jail. This threat of formal, legal punishment would intimidate people to self-censor. And that amounts to a stifling, in practice, of free speech.
That’s why this bill is dangerous. Not just for Christians, religious people, or social conservatives. This bill wrecks the social environment which has underpinned what we take for granted as a free, open, tolerant society – the kind of Australia I migrated to, love, and vowed to advance.
Mainstream media tend to caricature those who oppose this bill – especially religious people – as using public freedoms, like freedoms of speech and assembly, to protect themselves in a selfish, self-interested way. Is the mainstream media broad-minded enough to consider that we oppose this bill out of love? Love of freedom and tolerance? And love of country? And even – shock, horror – love of LGBT+ people?
And is the Victorian government broad-minded enough to make Victoria a place where social conservatives and religious people feel safe and welcome? Or has Australia gone backwards to become precisely the kind of country I was trying to escape from – a place that is not young and free, but old, cynical, and enslaved?’ https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/12/daniel-andrews-gender-antics-are-a-threat-not-enhancement-to-the-fundamentals-of-our-free-open-tolerant-society/
The Australian state of Victoria is one of the most Left/Marxist leaning states in Australia. The following occurred in the Victorian Parliament in 2016 but updated in September, 2020. In Victoria and most of the states here in Australia it doesn’t really matter what the Creator has said about the sin of sodomy but it will matter some day for God, the Creator will have the last say!
‘Premier Daniel Andrews apologised to those convicted under unjust laws that criminalised homosexual acts on Tuesday 24 May 2016.
The formal state apology was given in Parliament at 2pm.
The rainbow flag was flown on the top of Parliament House in recognition of the apology.
‘I move that this house apologise for laws that criminalised homosexuality in this state; laws which validated hateful views, ruined people’s lives and forced generations of Victorians to suffer in fear, silence and isolation,’ the Premier said at the special sitting attended by members of the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council.
These laws did not just punish homosexual acts, they punished homosexual thought. They had no place in a liberal democracy. They have no place anywhere. The Victorian Parliament and the Victorian Government were at fault. For this we are sorry.The Hon Daniel Andrews MP
The Premier said to his knowledge no jurisdiction in the world has ever offered a full and formal apology for laws like these.
‘So please let these words rest forever in our records. On behalf of the Parliament, the Government and the people of Victoria, for the laws we passed and the lives we ruined, and the standards we set, we are so sorry; humbly, deeply sorry,’ the Premier said.
Opposition Leader Matthew Guy and other members supported the motion. Mr Guy said it was a shameful, sad and distressing chapter in Victoria’s history.
‘After decriminalising homosexuality in 1980, after expunging criminal convictions related to homosexuality in 2014, we now as a Parliament apologise to the victims of policies of intolerance, repression that resulted in outcasting, depression and sadly even suicide,’ Mr Guy said.
The Opposition Leader said the apology was long overdue.
‘It is about time and it is right,’ Mr Guy said.

Romans 1:22-27 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Yes, the state knows better than you the parent! ‘This is where the “conversion therapy bans” and relentless demonization of Christian parents ends up–with children being forcibly removed from the family home.
This has already happened in several instances, but thus far primarily in cases where one parent opposes transition and other supports it (in two ongoing cases in Canada and the U.S., the mothers are supporting–and pushing–transition while the fathers oppose it.) In Australia, it has begun as well:
An Australian magistrate ordered that a gender-confused teenage girl be removed from her home after the magistrate called the parents’ refusal to allow her to ‘transition’ into a boy “abusive.”
Police removed the 15-year old from her home after the state children’s court magistrate cited in an October protection order the girl’s risk of self-harm. The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, allegedly discussed suicide in online chatrooms.
The parents, who also cannot be named, objected to what they described as bullying by authorities and are in the process of appealing the decision. They deny any abuse of their daughter.
“The authorities say we will not allow her to change gender, so it’s dangerous for her to come back to our house because we will mentally abuse her — they want us to consent to testosterone treatment,” the father told The Australian in a Nov. 28 report.
The parents expressed grief over the loss of their daughter, according to The Australian, and the mother said family and friends were shocked by the magistrate’s order.
“Especially Australians, they just can’t believe that it happens in Australia,” the mother said.
The parents are asking for a second opinion before doctors move ahead in giving their daughter hormone injections and possible surgery to make her look more like a male. Lawyers representing the teenager have already filed legal action on Nov. 7 for doctors to begin ‘transitioning’ the female to make her look male.
The country’s child protection authorities, however, have reportedly agreed to the parents’ request for a second opinion, reported The Australian.
A lawyer representing the parents says that the magistrate made an error in the decision when the magistrate insisted that the ruling had, in the words of The Australian report, “nothing to do with the causes of gender dysphoria or treatment options.” The lawyer filed the papers on Nov. 20.
“It’s controversial because different doctors can come up with different diagnoses and different treatments, so for parents to seek a second opinion before going along with irreversible treatment is wholly appropriate,” the lawyer, who also cannot be named, said.
Former political candidate Vickie Janson, a cultural conservationist and author from Melbourne, called the court’s pushing of the girl toward hormones to make her look more like a male “just reckless.”
“Even the lawyer can’t be named (needs protection?) when representing parents who seek ‘an independent psychologist to consider all possible underlying causes’ … rushing to damaging and irreversible treatments is just reckless,” she commented on Facebook in a Nov. 28 post.
Trans activists are successfully persuading both politicians and judges that when faced with gender dysphoria, there are only two options: Affirmation or suicide.
They do not explain why rates of gender dysphoria are spiking across the West; they demonize academics like Dr. Lisa Littman and Abigail Shrier who highlight the danger of this path; they celebrate permanent and irreversible physical damage as necessary transformation.
Some trans-friendly psychologists like Dr. Wallace Wong of British Columbia have turned trans kids into a cottage industry–Wong has actually been caught advising children to threaten suicide as a way of blackmailing their parents into accepting treatment they think might harm their children.
Conversion therapy is not only legal, it is encouraged. If you wish to persuade a boy or girl not to “transition” or “convert” to the opposite sex, progressives are calling that “conversion therapy.”
But if you are encouraging them to take these steps, that is not conversion therapy. Get in line, or they might come for your kids. Got it?’https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=4447
Is there just a smidgen of hypocrisy by the Leftist Victorian government in the following article? ‘Cognitive dissonance, thy name is Victoria.
How else to explain a state in which the miscarriage of a wanted baby is commemorated with a certificate, while the killing of an unwanted baby is protected by law?
Premier Daniel Andrews last night announced the creation of a certificate for parents who lose a child through miscarriage.
“Parents who have experienced early pregnancy loss can now apply for a commemorative certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages Victoria,” he announced via Twitter.
“Hopefully it’ll help bereaved parents mourn the child they never got to meet.
A message on the government’s website says: “To be able to provide these certificates to parents is such an important way to acknowledge their baby, and to acknowledge their loss.”
The initiative is to be applauded. But it does make one marvel at the mental gymnastics required to accept that an unborn child is a “baby” when miscarried, and something else when aborted.
It’s a classic case of doublethink.
Or is it? Perhaps the clump of cells growing in a womb magically becomes a baby when it is wanted.
Daniel Andrews last night lamented that “around one in five pregnancies ends in miscarriage before 20 weeks” leaving “bereaved parents.”
But on the other hand, Mr Andrews is responsible for laws permitting abortion on demand up until week 24 of a pregnancy and, where two medical practitioners agree, right up until birth.
The definition of human, like gender, is now seemingly fluid – blowing this way or that according to an individual’s sensibilities or, in this case, the audience Daniel Andrews is addressing.
What becomes of a society that decides the value of one human being on the basis of whether another human being wants them to exist?
If an unborn baby is a mere lump of cells, then we are lying to the bereaved parents by presenting a commemorative certificate lamenting the child they never got to meet.
But if an unborn baby is human, then we are lying when we assure the woman seeking an abortion that it’s all about her ‘choice’ concerning her body and her ‘reproductive health’.
Both positions cannot be true.
So is the commemorative certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages Victoria confirmation that the unborn are indeed human, just as two and two are four?

With the release of what is known as the Brereton Report Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has gone on record saying that some of those within the Australian SAS are responsible for some “disturbing and distressing” war crimes. It is also reported that Morrison has already apologized to the Afghan government and is ready to pay compensation to Afghan families for these alleged war crimes all before any trial has even been set!
The fighting in Afghanistan has been the longest of any Australia has ever participated in. Why Australia or the USA is really there no one truly knows! I believe this conflict exists ONLY because it makes a LOT of money for some while costing the lives of others.
Why is it, if Islam is such a religion of peace, there are so many wars going on in those nations dominated by Islam!? Also, why do Western nations poke their noses into Islamic wars that are not theirs and that they cannot or will not win? As I said earlier these conflicts make a LOT of MONEY for some while taking the lives of many others!
In spite of the fact that many Australians have lost their lives in a conflict that has nothing to do with their everyday life back here in Australia it comes as no real surprise that many Australian Muslims are pleased with Morrison and his confession of these supposed war crimes and the promise that compensation will be paid and those Australians responsible will be punished.
Yes, the Religion of Peace through the Islamic Council of Victoria ‘…welcomes the release of the long-awaited Brereton Report and urges timely prosecution of the alleged perpetrators.
It has taken many years to get to this point, a watershed moment no doubt in Australia’s military history, but justice for the families of the victims will only be fulfilled when those accused of these heinous crimes are prosecuted.
The ICV has consulted the leaders of its Afghan member societies and whilst having confidence in the Australian justice system, they were anxious that every effort must be made, and no expense spared, to bring the accused to trial in the shortest possible timeframe.
Sharing those concerns, ICV President Mohamed Mohideen said “It is true that justice delayed is justice denied. The victims have families that have lost their son, husband or father. They are still grieving.”
Beyond the horrific findings of the 39 alleged murders at the hands of Australian soldiers, we must ask why the warning signs were ignored. We must ask how the culture of covering up such behaviour was allowed to fester, where was the accountability? How did the chain of command break down so badly?
“How can we be sure that other abuses have not taken place in Afghanistan or other locations where Australian forces have served?” asks Mr Mohideen. “The Australian Government has an obligation to ensure that there are mechanisms to properly handle and investigate complaints and adequate protection is provided for whistle-blowers” continued Mohideen.
The leaders of the Afghan member societies believe that the families of the victims should be consulted regarding compensation, and that this process should commence immediately. And like many in the community, they are angered that some of the accused have been allowed to continue serving.
When compared with the callous refusal by the Americans and British and others to investigate potential war crimes committed by their forces in Afghanistan, Australia’s response stands out.
The Australian Government should strongly encourage our allies to do as we have done. This will go some way to repairing Australia’s international reputation.’https://www.icv.org.au/media-release-justice-must-be-served-for-the-people-of-afghanistan/

If it is raining and they say it isn’t, guess what, it isn’t, even if it is. Now, of all the states here in Australia more people have died in Victoria due to the China virus than any other state. Out of the 907 deaths in Australia Victoria had over 800 of them! Yet, with that Victoria is upheld by the Left as the shining light for all to follow! The Left wing New Daily’s title for the article below Victoria’s fabulous fortnight: State ticks off 14 days free of virus infections doesn’t tell the truth but that’s the way the Left sees things.
‘Victoria has posted a full fortnight with no new coronavirus infections or fatalities.
The state’s 14th day in a row without confirmed cases came as state borders were again expected to be high on the agenda at Friday’s national cabinet meeting.
Victoria has only three remaining active cases, and only one whose origin cannot be traced.
COVID cases have plummeted across the country in recent weeks. NSW also confirmed another day without community acquired infections on Thursday. It had only a single new infection in a returned traveller in hotel quarantine.
“What we have achieved is incredible,” federal Health Minister Greg Hunt said ahead of the NSW confirmation.
“Today the early advice that I have is that NSW is on track to have zero cases, matching what Victoria is doing. Australia may well be on track for another zero case day of community transmission.”https://thenewdaily.com.au/news/coronavirus/2020/11/13/virus-australia-state-borders/?utm_source=Adestra&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=News%20Alert%20-%2020201113
The China virus has not only affected the Presidential election via mail-in ballots but allowed Australian state dictators to rule without opposition. ‘For the first time since self-government was granted by the British in the nineteenth century, Australia has become a series of rolling tin-pot dictatorships.
What was truly appalling this year was than not one of the checks and balances we rely on to protect us from any rampant Mussolini class actually worked.
Most of the dictatorships were installed by ministerial subordinate legislation.
Like a tsunami, nothing stopped them. Not disallowance by a second chamber, which exists in all states except Queensland. And even where there is a second chamber, the disallowance power has too often been deleted by a compliant chamber.
Nor the courts where the prime minister does not see a sacred duty to maintain the federation and our open borders, where there have been few other plaintiffs who stay, and which anyway did not show the urgency the High Court did when it once rushed to get rid of John Howard’s attempt to block electoral fraud. Some of the viceroys may have expressed their concerns, but too often the making of subordinate legislation has been taken away from and not reported to the executive councils. And rather than a check and balance, much of the mainstream media has preferred to act as the panic adjunct of the relevant premier relaying endlessly the dictatorial mantra to ‘do the right thing’.
Thus, Australian democracy collapsed before a tsunami of power-crazed politicians and their armies of advisers.
And yet we are one of the half-dozen oldest continuing democracies in the world.
The point is that if anyone doubts Lord Acton’s dictum that power tends to corrupt, an objective analysis of the politicians’ response to the Wuhan virus should settle the matter. Decisions were too often taken for political advantage rather than on medical grounds, often exhibiting blatant inconsistencies.
The decision to impose a lockdown which so seriously damaged the lives, businesses liberties and freedom of hundreds of thousands of law-abiding Australians necessitated great care and attention to the question whether it was justified.
But instead, the politicians revealed an incompetence that was breathtaking, suggesting that attention was concentrated on political considerations rather than on the question of absolute necessity.
In place of the requisite judgement Edmund Burke suggested is the only point in choosing a parliamentary representative, Australia’s political leaders substituted flawed and exaggerated modelling. As mentioned before, and which should never be forgotten, this contained a key error so astronomical and so glaring (the projection of a daily need of 35,000 intensive care units) that the humblest tradesman, farmer or small businessperson would have surely questioned it had they been allowed to lay eyes on it
Neither our leaders noticed it, nor did the bureaucratic supremos privy to the modelling.
They want you to forget this outrage. You shouldn’t.
The result was that what in many ways is a trial dictatorship was imposed, and especially in Victoria, the state appropriately in some embryonic relationship with communist China.
The nation, to a greater or lesser degree, was subject to a brutal and wholly unnecessary lockdown. The number who died from the virus was well over 125 times higher than it should have been had the politicians disobeyed Beijing’s wishes and followed Taiwan, home of world’s best pandemic practice.
To recall the corollary of Acton’s dictum about power, a constitutional system must provide checks and balances against the corruptive nature of power.
This experience has become an evil precedent for the politicians and not only about pandemics. Already there are calls to use the concept of dictatorship to impose the imagined cure to global warming, no doubt another way for the communists to undermine the West which among Western leaders President Trump alone has noticed.
Now in determining what should be the question du jour, how to ensure checks and balances always operate to prevent the abuse of power, it is appropriate to recall that the federation of Australia was achieved not by the politicians alone, but by the direct involvement of the people under the Corowa Plan.
This required the direct election of a convention with its conclusions being put directly to the people for decision by referendum. Our ancestors designed a constitution for a country, put it to the people, changed it, put it again, took it to London and put it through the Westminster parliament. All in four years without air travel and the internet. This is a precedent worth following for the first people’s review of the constitution in over 120 years, particularly of course to reinstall protections against the abuse of power.
To do this, some formal changes to the Constitution should be made consistent with the Corowa Plan. As argued here, we should constitutionalise Alan Jones’ Pub Test, that is, ensure that the common sense with which the rank-and-file are liberally endowed, can always prevail.
There are six points which should be encompassed in this approach:
– either House, or three state Parliaments or the people by a petition of, say, 5 per cent of electors nationally and in a majority of states, shall be able to call an elected convention to sit for a maximum of three years.
– each state and territory shall be entitled to elect a number of unpaid delegates equal to one half the total of their senators and MHRs.
– no candidate shall in campaigning be entitled to claim endorsement or affiliation with a registered political party.
– where possible the convention shall operate through committees and with electronic communication.
– after wide consultation, the convention may put a constitutional referendum or referendums.
– Yes and No cases for all voters will be prepared for each referendum question by the appropriate delegates, with federal funding for reasonable advertising expenses.
This of course will only occur if there is an overwhelming demand from Australians to take back their country. The solution is in our hands.’https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/11/trial-dictatorship/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=OZWH%20%2020201107%20%20AL&utm_content=OZWH%20%2020201107%20%20AL+CID_3b76ec7e531d74e43d3c90137e6fe1ab&utm_source=CampaignMonitor_Australia&utm_term=Trial%20dictatorship

- All Victorians must wear a fitted face mask when they leave home, no matter where they live. As restrictions ease and movement increases, the effectiveness of a face mask is even more important.
- You must wear a fitted face mask that covers the nose and mouth. This means that face shields, bandanas, or scarves or loose snoods, loose Buffs® or loose neck gaiters on their own will no longer be considered a sufficient face covering.
- There are a number of lawful excuses for not wearing a face mask.
- A face mask with three layers is the option recommended by the Chief Health Officer, as it provides the best protection for you and others.’https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/face-masks-vic-covid-19#what-is-changing
