Just thought you might be interested in how well protected our basic rights are in OZ at the moment. Interestingly enough, (without getting on the soap-box) I recently had a vigorous discussion/argument with a High Court judge here about our need for a bill of rights. Particularly as we MAY be heading towards a republic some time this millenia I was assured that we did not need one as "the courts will look after you". !!! Condescending bullshit. Please read attached to see how our courts protect us. This is from one of our national dailies.
