High Court and Jim Molan

Senator Nash was removed from parliament for being a dual citizen under S44 of the Australian constitution.

Ms Hughes was initially named as replacement until it was found she received Commonwealth payments and was therefore disqualified.

Senator Fieraventi-Welles got into the court to try and have herself pushed up the elected list because that would make her a 6 year senator instead of a 3 year senator because of where she was on the list of those elected.

Then came Andrew James Molan, aka Major General Jimmy Molan.  He was appointed as special envoy to Operation Sovereign Borders by Tony Abbott.  No mention was made in the High Court about that appointment so I tried to find out for myself.

Prime Minister and Cabinet say they probably don't have the information, they hadn't looked yet.  They were asking if I wanted to bother with an FOI.  Their first delay process was to say my email asking for an FOI wasn't a proper FOI because it didn't say FOI in the body of the email. The subject line said FOI request.  They suggested Home Affairs would have the information.

Department of Finance said they probably don't have the information, but hadn't looked yet.  they suggested Home Affairs should have the information.

Home Affairs went straight to requesting a delay in processing the FOI request totally ignoring the legal 30 day time limit and then said they don't hold any information prior to the creation of the department in December 2017.

So much prevarication,surely there can't be a cover up? The Nash High Court case can be found here.

I have written to Geoff Kennett QC the friend of the court in the Nash case.

Dear Mr Kennett

I am just a voter with an interest in the S44 chaos that has been in the High Court recently. 

I have looked but couldn't find anything in the court papers online about Mr Molan's appointment as special envoy for Operation Sovereign Borders and the payments he received for that appointment.

I have tried to lodge FOI requests to find out when Mr Molan was paid by the Commonwealth in the office of special envoy but have run into a politically induced road block.  The Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet and the Department of Finance advise that they probably don't own that information (no search has yet been conducted)  and that the new Department of Home Affairs would have that information.  The FOI office at Home Affairs advise they do not hold any information before the department was formed in December 2017.

As friend of the court in the Nash case, C17/2017, did you look for that information or was the fact Mr Molan could have been a Commonwealth employee and may still be a Commonwealth employee brought to your attention?

If Mr Molan is still a Commonwealth employee as special envoy or was an employee at the time of the election who is responsible fro advising the court?  Can you as amicus?


regards and best wishes



Home Affairs FOI have written saying they must Ask Jim Molan if he will allow the information to be released.  Hopefully you will allow it Jim or it looks doubly dubious.




Just got an email from Senator McKim's office, he will ask in Senate estimates at the end of February.  My FOI to Home Affairs has been paid for so the information should be here sometime today.  Hopefully.

22/2/18

The FOI finally came through and our beloved fascist war criminal stopped getting payments in August 2014.  Why the fuck wouldn't the silly old twat say so? Do you get off on annoying people Jimmy?  Does your sick twisted mind that phosphorus bombed Fallujah think taking $15 off a pensioner for an FOI is cool?  What about the time and money wasted in the Department of Home Affairs, the department that used to pay you? 

We elect some idiots in Australia, stupid must be high on the selection criteria for our right wing political parties.

Submissions to the JSCEM

Two submissions, one accepted and published on the Parliament House web pages :- https://www.aph.gov.au/DocumentStore.ashx?id=b65cd34d-9907-4c20-8637-fbc3bc66ea51&subId=561878






The other waiting to be accepted.  It will end up in this link and click on the submissions on the RHS when it comes up.


The implications of recent decisions by the Court of Disputed Returns concerning section 44 of the Constitution on questions referred by the Parliament under section 376 of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918, with particular reference to:


(a) the decisions in connection with the disqualification of former Senators Bob Day and Rodney Culleton;
(b) a regime for disclosing information relating to aspects other than section 44(i), for which the Parliament has already provided;
(c) the form such a process might take and how it could be implemented; and
(d) any related matters.

Submission from Tony Magrathea

As a voter my biggest concerns are the former members of parliament not having to repay their salaries and expenses and avoiding any investigation into signing false declarations to nominate for election.

(a) Both former Senators Day and Culleton were aware of the problems highlighted in their High Court cases before signing the nomination form to be elected. Both signed false declarations but any option to have that investigated by the Australian Federal Police has been covered up.


The AFP were asked via their report a Commonwealth crime page on their web site to investigate. The AFP advised it was not their job to investigate that the AEC was responsible. The AEC advised they have no authority to investigate or prosecute false declaration on a nomination form that the Attorney General must action that/. The Attorney General advised he has no authority to direct the AFP to investigate crimes, they are an independent authority. Copies of the documentation are available on http://tonymagrathea.blogspot.com.au/2017/11/whistle-blower-blocked-by-afp.html


(b) The various parliamentary committees which call for public submission must investigate all problems highlighted in those submissions. In the JSCEM inquiry into the 2016 election I pointed out several problems regarding S44, Senator Roberts citizenship, Mr Turnbull buying the rights and privileges of Caymans Island citizen with his Caymans Island accounts and the continuing problems with Mr Abbott where it now transpires the UK Home Office refuse to confirm the details in his renunciation letter shown to parliament match data held in the Home Office.
(c) The best way to handle S44 problems would be to have an independent public service office examine all reports and allegations of problems mentioned in the media. In parliament or by voters writing to the office. The pubic service office would have the authority to demand proof from MPs and should the matter not be resolved to refer the MP to the High Court. The Office should be independent and not have any political association at all. As a voter I am very concerned that both the Liberal and Labour parties seem to have an unwritten code to not refer the others members to the High Court. To have a situation where criminality can only be investigated because a party has the numbers in the house or the senate is ridiculous. An MP either signed a false declaration to nominate or later situations changed to put them in breach of S44 or they are innocent.


(d) Should the public service office mentioned above be instituted then a complete audit of every MP must be undertaken. Then the AEC must be allowed to demand citizenship proof at nomination time. At the 2016 election a senate candidate in Tasmania was a dual citizen and a candidate in the seat of Warringah, other than Mr Abbott, was a dual citizen or not in fact an Australian citizen, he wasn't sure according to his blog.

Whistle blower blocked by AFP

This citizenship fiasco has entered the absurd.

I am sort of a whistle blower, I ask questions about illegal MPs being in parliament and the questioning seems to have caught on.  A lot are asking and a lot are being caught.


I have been told by the South East Queensland version of the Australian Federal Police that they will ignore any report I lodge about a Commonwealth Crime. A person singing a false declaration to nominate for election to parliament is committing a Commonwealth crime.

Now I find the Australian Federal Police have blocked me on Twitter.  What the fuck for?





I have written to Sue Bird and Andrew Colvin deputy and commissioner of the AFP asking what are they up to.

The AFP have now written to me saying it is not their job to investigate Commonwealth crimes. A copy of that at the end of the blog.  Why not report a crime for them? They seem to want to ignore me.  https://www.afp.gov.au/contact-us/report-commonwealth-crime



These are the Commonwealth Crimes I have reported so far.



I believe others are reporting Commonwealth crimes of a similar vein and if yo read this can you please add your information or links to the comments below.  Some others I have found are:-




Another one 9/11/2017, Rebekha Sharkie.




The email from AFP saying not their job to investigate.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mr MAGRATHEA,

Reference is made to your multiple emails to the Australian Federal Police dated between 28 October and 9 November 2017.

The AFP is the primary law enforcement agency responsible for investigating crimes against the Commonwealth of Australia. Information about what the AFP may investigate and the processes involved can be found at:

        http://www.afp.gov.au/contact/report-a-crime.

Under the Australian Government Investigations Standards, Commonwealth entities have their own anti-fraud or investigative components, and have the primary responsibility for investigating fraud committed against their agencies.  Where a matter is sufficiently serious or complex, Commonwealth agencies will forward the matter to the AFP for consideration.

Matters that pertain to the alleged false or misleading statement made in an application to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) is not the role of the AFP and are best referred to the AEC.

The AEC has primary responsibility for investigating alleged offences against their Agency and those that are relevant to the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918.

Should the AEC identify that a criminal offence has been committed they may refer the matter to the AFP for further investigation if required.

Your correspondence has been recorded by the AFP however no further action will be taken.

Email from Paul Pirani chief legal office at the AEC

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Dear Mr Magrathea

As you have previously been advised, the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) does not administer section 44 of the Constitution and has no power to investigate claims that persons may have incorrectly claimed that they were not disqualified by the operation of that section of the Constitution.

Let me clearly state that the AEC has no power or function that would enable it to conduct any investigations into the issue of incorrect information being included on the candidate nomination forms.

As you will no doubt be aware, the actions of the Court in these proceedings are not the first time that a person who has sat in the Parliament has been found to have been disqualified.  Previous cases include In re Wood [1988} HCA 22, Sykes v Cleary [1992] HCA 60, Free v Kelly [1996] HCA 42, Sue v Hill [1999] HCA 30; Re Culleton (No. 2) [2017] HCA 4 and Re Day (No. 2) [2017] HCA 14.  The AEC administers the conduct of federal elections according to the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 (Electoral Act). The Electoral Act does not provide the AEC with the authority to conduct eligibility checks on potential candidates.  This is particularly the case given the complexities of overseas citizenship- laws and the short timeframe between the close of nominations and the commencement of early voting.

The eligibility of candidates is addressed in section 44 of the Constitution. The Attorney General's Department administers the Constitution and the AEC cannot disqualify a candidate relying on the operation of section 44 of the Constitution. The AEC is subject to the requirements of the Electoral Act.  Section 172 of the Electoral Act sets out the only grounds upon which the AEC is able to reject a nomination of a candidate.  Those grounds do not include disqualifying a candidate under the Constitution.  Any disqualification of a candidate due to the operation of section 44 of the Constitution can only be determined by the High Court sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns after an election.

In relation to the issue of potential fraud in relation to the completion of the candidate nomination form, this does not fall within the jurisdiction of the AEC as the relevant fraud provisions are contained in the Criminal Code Act 1995 which is administered by the Attorney-General's Department.  The investigation of possible fraud offences is a matter for the Australian Federal Police (AFP).  Accordingly, questions relating to the interpretation of the Criminal Code Act 1995 and any possible action for fraud would need to be directed to that Department and the AFP.  However, as far as the AEC is aware no prosecutorial action was taken in any of the previous cases.  Given the complexities of the overseas citizenship laws that were addressed by the Court in this matter, it would appear that such action was not taken is due to the difficulties in proving all of the elements of such an offence.

Yours sincerely

Mr. Paul Pirani | Chief Legal Officer


A letter from the Attorney General saying they don't tell th AFP what to investigate. The AFP is an independent authority and it is up to them to investigate crimes or reports of crimes.  So who is telling porkies?





Decided to write to my local MP Andrew Wallace who was a barrister before becoming an MP.  He might know who is rsponsible for upholding the law in our country.

Dear Mr Wallace
quite a few members of parliament have been removed for being in breach of S44 of the constitution. None have been prosecuted for signing a false declaration to nominate for parliament at the last election or at previous elections.
Several knew they were in breach of the constitution or should have if they had read the nomination form and the candidates handbook. The form 60 you all sign has a tick box about compliance with S44 and a section stating  I am qualified under the constitution and laws of the Commonwealth to be elected.  The nomination form and handbook detail what is in S44 of the constitution. Mr Day knew his business holdings, Mr Culleton knew his court problems, Mr Ludlam and Mr Joyce both knew of the New Zealand heritage, Ms Nash knew of her British heritage even Ms Waters knew of the problems with her Canadian citizenship because I asked her to make sure she was legitimate in 2014.  I had asked all foreign born MPs in the 44th parliament and none bothered replying to me except Ms Waters who advised there was no problem with her citizenship.
I have asked the Australian Electoral Commission why the did not prosecute people for signing false declarations.  Mr Pirani their Chief Legal Officer advised " the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) does not administer section 44 of the Constitution and has no power to investigate claims that persons may have incorrectly claimed that they were not disqualified by the operation of that section of the Constitution. "
I wrote to Mr Colvin and Ms Bird the Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police asking why they had not prosecuted anyone for signing a false declaration on their nomination for election forms.  The Client Liaison Team at the AFP Operations Coordination Centre advised " The AFP is the primary law enforcement agency responsible for investigating crimes against the Commonwealth of Australia.  The AEC has primary responsibility for investigating alleged offences against their Agency and those that are relevant to the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918. "
I asked the same of the Attorney General, I believe Senator Brandis was AG at the time.  He advised "the Australian government cannot and should not direct the AFP on specific operational matters.  The decision to prosecute an allegation is a matter for the AFP.  It would not be proper for the Attorney General to intervene in such decisions."
The AEC can't prosecute,the AFP say it is the AEC responsibility and the AG says it is up to the AFP to decide to prosecute.
No one wants to prosecute people who committed fraud to become members of parliament.  Who's responsibility is it to prosecute the people who signed false declaration to nominate for election?  I know of about a dozen reports of Commonwealth crimes given to the AFP which they have refused to even consider looking at.  I know Mr Colvin is very friendly with the Liberal party from discussion with him in the past.
Would you please try to find out who is responsible for prosecuting those people who sign false declarations to nominate for election? The wording of the act says the knowingly sign a false declaration, the examples I gave earlier mention business dealings, court processes, family ties all of which would indicate the person signing the false declaration knew what they were doing.The High Court justices said s much in their decisions to expel them from parliament.
I do hope that you, with such a good legal mind, can clarify who is responsible for upholding the law in this country.
thanks for your time
regards


Mr Taylor is the minister for law enforcement so he got an email asking why the law isn't being enforced.




Been writing to Mr Dutton the minister responsible for the AFP to find out what the fuck is going on.

Wrote in December and no reply.  Tried again in February and no reply so I lodged a complaint with the Home Affairs feedback people.  They say the AFP have nothing to do with Home Affairs.




Thing is the AFO web site sdays they are part of the Home Affairs department and Dutton is their minister.  This cover up is going beyond a joke.  I don't think it can just be called incompetence anymore.  There is a very active cover up to protect MPs from being charged with a crime.

Osteo arthritis and me

17 May 2018

 

My GP suggested I stop using the pentosan nasal spray.  I have had problems with small cuts not healing properly.  She thinks that because the pentosan is a blood thinner it is causing problems. I stopped the spray and the healing returned immediately and after a few weeks the hip pain too.




I have osteo arthritis in most of my joints.  The only place to escape is a knee that was diagnosed as rheumatoid arthritic about 10 years ago.  When I had the full body scan 2 months ago that found all of the osteo joints the rheumatoid arthritis had disappeared. cured?


I found out about pentosan polysulphate sodium in an email some news company sent to me and heard about it on the BBC world service.  I looked and decided that's for me.  And then the fun started.  No chemist in my town had heard of the stuff and that's where it came out the chemical is great for horses.  None of the vets I knew wanted to sell it to me and then I found this link. bingo

I will be getting my first lot early next week so this blog will be a tour through the trip of human testing of a horse drug.  My doctor has agreed to monitor me, she has hundreds of patients loaded with osteo and one with the brains or idiocy to try to fix it himself.  I wont name my doctor until she wants to be named, I am unsure of the ethics of letting a patient self test on what was basically horse medicine until a chance discovery it helps with osteo arthritis.

For the politicians, I am a disabled pensioner and have had to give up buying food this week so I could afford the medicine.

For those reading the blog I can feed the pair of us from the garden for a month or three and there is about 4 months of food in the pantry and freezer.  But I planned to have bought a $150 worth of food to top up things.

The cost of the medicine is $210 delivered and that is 3 months of the nasal spray.  The idea is I use until the joint pain goes.  Because I am on a lot of pain killers for my almost ceased up hip, bung knee and vertebra from when I broke my back playing rugby I will go off the pain killers one day a week to see how the horse medicine is working.  I will try to log what's going on in this blog.

Any reporters  or media outlets who want to use what is in this blog please pay the going rate.  I know there are almost standard rates so it would be nice if you gifted them to me in the paypal bit below.  If it is The Guardian the rate is double until Lenore Taylor and Vanbadham unblock me and apologise for the birther rantings.

For anyone using this in their own blog, think about a gift for the poor old bastard undergoing a trial that may benefit a lot of you.

If you decide to try it yourself make sure you contact your doctor first.  You will need a script and then let Complementary Compounding Services know you heard about it from me.

This isn't a properly set up medical test, there is nothing that would match the magnificent work of researchers in our universities but its a start from a bloke who wants to try and help.

27 September 2017

Filled in the online form, the prescription button near the top Needed to scan my prescription to send with it, I used Cam Scanner and hey presto. Next to do is to post the original script to Complementary Compounding Services and wait for them to give me a ring for the credit card details.


3 October 2017


The sniffing has started,  the nasal spray arrived today.  Two sprays up each nostril once a day.  I will do the next report on the 10th.

5 October 2017

Just a reminder this isn't a scientific trial, there are no double blinds, no daily monitoring.  It is me.  Two days of sniffing and my ankles don't click when I rotate my foot.  With the sniffing, lean back to do it and don't be frightened to sniff in the fluid in your nose.  No idea if that is collected spray or nasal juices reacting to the spray coming into your nose. Suck it and see, keep it in the body it my be good for you and at worst can't harm you.  I had a walk to buy some fruit at the greengrocers in town. Recently a short walk like that would be extremely painful in the hip and back for two days afterwards. No problems.

8 October 2017

Definitely feeling different, lighter? Or lighter headed? Strange feeling all over.  Not unpleasant, softer, smoother, lighter is the best way to try and describe it.
Waking up with very dry mouth. Don't know if it is the pentosan?

9 October 2017

No painkillers started this morning, will be interesting to see how that goes.  Last night was left hand side clicking night.  Joints from ankle to knee to hip to shoulder all got vocal which they haven't done for 12-18 months.  Does that mean the joints are freeing up,not as swollen? No idea,like I said this is not a scientific study just a record of what happens to me. I will google it and see what doctor google says about joints becoming vocal.

17:20pm  hip starting to ache.  I will sleep without pain killers and see how things are in the morning.

10 October 2017

Early AM and a bit of pain in hip and knee. Will go back on pain killers after breakfast.

11 October 2017

Some very loud joint cracking last night, mostly hip.  Audible to my wife so wasn't internalised.  Major pain in back this morning,more muscle than joint. Yesterday & this AM found hip moving where it hasn't been for a while and causing sharp pains.

Today is my shopping day.,the day where I try to be as normal as possible and put up with the bastard pain. It's the butcher, the baker, the green grocer and a newsagent that sells lotto tickets.  (so many local newsagents are not selling lotto because tatts has imposed a $30,000 fee on them) The pain is sharp and bad but I don't think it is as knockout bad as last fortnight.  I am holding a lot of hope in this horse pill nasal spray.

14 October 2017 Pain from walking eased up a lot quicker than "normal". Joints clicking and clacking, is that because the swelling is going down or the build up of arthritic material is lessening? Don't know, time will tell.

16 October 2017

Another day off the pain medication to see how things pan out. Some pain but can be handled. Doctor lowing pain medication by a third to see how that goes.  I will start it again in the morning.  Expensive medication for a pauper but if you do have osteo arthritis I would recommend you look at at least trying it.

Walked around town today, dog food, bakery, chemist for pain medication.  Got wet but could do it.  My joints seem to have freed up quite a lot.

19 October 2017


A warning for anyone who decides to use the horse pill nasal spray.  I am in what might be called extreme pain today.  I don't think the medicine has worn off or the reduction in my pain killers was too much.  I had three days of a little walking and muscles that haven't been used for a long time are telling me to ease up a bit.

24 October 2017


Twenty one today, twenty one today....The sniffing of the horse pills really does seem to be working.  It isn't a massively quick magic fix, but so many parts of my body are feeling that little bit easier.  My hip was always the worst case scenario and it does let me know that pain is a real thing.  But it is moving a bit easier, I can bend my leg up a lot further than I have been able to in recent years.  Maybe by christmas I can go back to wearing shoes with laces?  That would be nice.

The medical treatment for osteo arthritis is put up with the pain and watch your body stop working or use massive pain killers to help hide a lot of the pain (but not all) and watch your body stop working.  Pentosan polysulphate sodium in the nasal spray seems to be helping me.  I would recommend you try it for yourself.  Anything is better than sitting back mellow on pain killers while your hip or knee or wrist and fingers slowly cease up.  If it doeskin work at least you will have tried to do something about it.

One day medicine and investment companies and the uber rich who donate money might realise osteo arthritis is a bastard of a thing and something should be done about it.


30 October 2017

Another week flown by.  Nearly due for another bottle of the nasal spray. Don't know if it is the pain medication I am on or what, but pain had some big twinges this week but not where I remember having them.  Hip pain used to be above the ball joint this week was the front of the leg in the groin.  Like a muscle strain from rugby in the long long ago.

1 November 2017


For anyone who doesn't have osteo arthritis this will sound strange but I woke up this morning very early and could bend my legs they way they haven't bent for years and got the soles of my feet touching each other. Could not get back to sleep because of the huge grin on my face.


7 November 2017

Another week done.  Nasal spray has finished, it lasted a good time.  Now for the pennies to magically come together and order another one.  I will be paying for another one because the change so far has been quite excellent.

21 November 2017

Missed a week?  Sorry.  Politics in Australia got a bit too interesting and I tried to do my bit to bring the government to account.

My doctor reduced my pain medication, now a third of what it was when I started the nasal spray.  Too much too early I think. Massively huge enormous bad pain and agony.  Trouble walking or standing because of my hip and back.  The back is mostly muscle pulled out of kilter by my hip and leg not working/walking properly.  My hip?  So many little clicks and pops that never used to happen,  Is this pentosan stuff working and the pain caused by the tissue repairing?  I don't know and wont know for a while.

27 November 2017

Another week and huge reduction in pain. Done nothing different, the pain from last week just stopped.  Tapping head because no wood available. Had some big twinges but nothing constant.  Walking this morning again might stir it up.  Will see.


4 December 2017

Less pain and much more clicking in the hip.  Is clicking a good thing?  My hip has been so stiff for a few years now that clicking just didn't happen.  Is it loosing up? Is it easing?  Don't know.


6 December 2017

Interim report.  One of the problems of having a hip that wont bend because of osteo arthritis is not being able to cut my own toenails.  Total embarrassments with that.  Today I was able to bend enough to cut the toes on the foot on the side of my bung hip.  Toenails cut but massive huge enormous gigantic pain.  I guess my hip and muscle structure had not been mobile for such a long time that I stretched things massively.

11 December 2017

The pain killers my doctor has me on aren't working.  It's a patch and seems to work 5 or 6 days a week, it is supposed to be a 7 day patch.  And even then there are days where it may as well not be on because of the pain.  No idea if the pentosan is still working or helping because of the pain I am in from my hip.


16 December 2017

I convinced my doctor to stop using the morphine patch and give me something else.  Most sorts of anaesthetics don't work properly on me and the morphine patch is yet another.  It seems to amplify the pain.  The patch stopped and so did the hip pain.  Broken back and the stuffed up muscles in the back are still there and still a reminder of what pain is but the hip?  Is the pentosan working?  I would have to say it is starting to work.

6 January 2018

Some queries and some people trying it.  The cost is $200 for a small bottle of the spray, not $200 for 3 months.  The script is for 3 bottles of the spray, about 3 months worth.

Personally I stopped the massive pain killers for my hip.  I get muscle pain in my back, but with a back broken 40 years ago I guess there will always be pain there.  There has been pain there for all of the 40 years I have lived with it.  The muscle spasms will sort themselves out with exercise and with the hip being so much better exercise is only an attitude problem now.


30 January 2018


Been a while.  Pentosan is still working on my, back spasms and muscle pains still a pain in the back.  ABC called and they may run a story about the costs of medicine.  My choice in the first weeks was food or $200 for the Pentosan.  Luckily we have a garden and a freezer and choosing to go without buying food wasn't as drastic as it is for some.  Now I am almost organised and know I have to spend $200 a time to get the hip improving.

9 February 2018

I have been asked by people if the nasal spray is still working.  It seems to be.  Had what I thought was my hip disjointing the other day. Very painful but very quick.  Seemed to slip out and then in or that's what it felt like to me.  OK now.  Still mostly the back pain but I am doing what I can to stretch and strengthen those muscles.

23 February 2018

Went to the hospital today to talk with an orthopaedic surgeon.  I am now on the waiting list to get a hip replacement.  I will continue with the pentosan and make the final decision when they xray me for the operation in ,6,12 months time.  If there is marked improvement on the xray I will decide for sure then.

28 February 2018

Might sound strange going to a specialist about an operation but I am just covering all bases.  And after the last two days when for some reason the pain has been extraordinary.  Haven't had pain for quite a while and haven't taken a pain killer for yonks.  Had to take one today and it doesn't seem to be helping at all. Did some gardening yesterday which seems to have caused the problem.

16 March 2018

The pain I mentioned a few weeks back is caused by popping in the joint.  That's the best way I can describe it, like when  a cartilage pops in your knee or a wrist clicks?  When it pops pain is big.  But not for long. Most of the time I have been pain free. After years of taking massive amounts of Tramadol this is a big change.

23 March 2018

Read the label, LOL.  It is a blood thinning agent and may cause problems with cuts etc.  It does.  Be careful and watch what you are doing.

Not my fault

Parliament is in chaos, thankfully Game of Thrones has told us chaos is a ladder, but not everyone can climb it.

I asked Abbott about his citizenship, for that I was ridiculed, called a birther, had death threats and the AFP parked up the street for 3 months watching my comings and goings from my own house.  I didn't just ask Aussie Tone, I asked every foreign born MP and so few bothered replying.

Others asked, 400,000 on Facebook became very vociferous with the key board asking about Tony Abbott.  Change dot org had a petition with 33,000 petitioners signing it.

I even discovered the wonders of petitions to parliament, I asked about Abbott and was told that we voters should trust MPs to tell the truth when they nominate.  I asked for an audit of citizenship for MPs and Senator Cormann couldn't be bothered answering the petition.  3 petitions in about 10 years have not been answered by ministers, the audit one, one asking about Abbott's mum signing his citizenship application and another that the petitions committee talk about but I cant find.

Senator Ryan as the new Special Minster of State ignored a submission to the inquiry into the 2016 election asking for amongst other things  an audit of citizenship compliance and for Senator Roberts to be checked for compliance.  Senator Ryan didn't bother so the chaos kicked in properly when Senator Ludlam & Waters who I had asked in 2014 both quit for being dual citizens.  And then the Village Idiot Roberts declared he would go to the High Court to determine if he was a dual citizen or not.

Senator Ryan is off sick, I believe it is stress after a recent medical procedure and may be compounded by incompetence and the chaos in parliament, but surely it sits with Senator Cormann who refused to answer a petition.  Just ignored it.  Who was he protecting? How many others will go?

The bastard birther has put another petition to parliament and this time the Attorney General must answer it.



And on telly while I am writing this Billy Bhoy Shorten the Abbott apologist has decided that there shouldn't be an audit because it is up to the individual. This wannabee next Prime Minister was the first person in the country to block me on social media for daring to ask him to ask about Abbott's citizenship.  It took Ludlam & Waters and a UK court case to finally determine Abbott has renounced his British citizenship, but he should have answered when asked back in 2013.


We need an audit of all MPs because the option is to trust MPs to tell the truth when they nominate.  And that hasn't worked at all so far.  The petition is there, the audit must happen and everyone must show they comply with the law.

It doesn't stop there. Legislation needs to be changed to allow the Australian Electoral Commission to demand proof of compliance at nomination instead of waiting for disasters in parliament.

Access to the Court of Disputed Returns must be made available to any voter in the country, not just limited to the voters in a particular electorate.  The time limit for CODR must also be changed so that the court can be accessed by voters at anytime instead of just withing 40 days of the election being called.

Postscript to The End is Nigh

The one before this, The End is Nigh discusses a letter Mr Abbott posted on twitter purporting to be proof of his renouncing his British citizenship.

On the day he posted that letter on twitter I lodged an FOI request at the UK Home Office asking for a copy of the form RN and the receipt he paid to renounce his British citizenship.  This was to tidy up the saga and add them to everything I had on my searching for the truth.  The link to the request is here.

Ten days later I got a reply saying

Freedom of Information request (our reference: 44642) 
Thank you for your e-mail of 14 July 2017, in which you ask for information regarding
Anthony John Abbott.  Your request has been handled as a request for information under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and can be viewed in full in the accompanying
Annex A.

I can confirm that the Home Office does not hold this information.


All can be found in the link above or read the screen cap below.




Zebedee and the Magic Roundabout sort of fits in nicely with this whole fiasco of Tony Abbott's citizenship.  What is Senator Ryan doing? He is the Special Minister of State responsible for all things election.  An audit of S44 compliance must happen quickly and the Australian Electoral Commission must be allowed to demand proof at nomination time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For a year or two there have been appeal processes going on in the UK because the UK Home Office refused to release information about Mr Abbott's compliance with the Australian constitution.  The matter went through an internal appeal, an Information Commissioner appeal and for a long while the First Tier Tribunal, a judges only court process to determine once and for all what is what.  I sent a copy of that dodgy Abbott twitter letter and for nearly three weeks we in the court process, the ICO, the Tribunal and myself have been waiting for the UK Home Office to determine if the letter is factual.  It is.  I received this reply from the Tribunal today (2/8/17)





There is no confirmation from the UL Home Office that the information  in Mr Abbott's photo shopped letter is correct.

The FOI request and refusal to answer process is in this 

I asked the UK Office of the Information Commissioner to examine the case and they have ordered the UK Home Office to answer  by 25 January.

The end is nigh

Tony Abbott posted this in his twitter feed yesterday after Senator Ludlam announced he was a dual citizen and resigning from parliament.   Former Prime Minister Paul Keating was also on twitter calling for an audit of S44 compliance after Mr Ludlam's resignation announcement and he coyly included Mr Abbott's twitter tag.  Senator Hinch did the same.  A few minutes after Mr Ludlam's announcement I emailed my local MP Andrew Wallace asking if he would push for an audit of S44 and mentioned how things were going in the court case in the UK which is demanding the UK Home Office release information about Abbott. An hour after my email to Wallace Abbott releases the information.  Me or Keating or Hinch or guilt LOL  It's all about me init?







The UK Court people were sent a copy of the letter Abbott posted on twitter and told if this matches the information the UK Home Office refuses to confirm or deny, then cancel the court process.

Would have been much better had Abbott replied to my email in 2013 or if he had replied to the FOI requests, one saying the FOI would be refused the other saying the information doesn't exist. Would have been much better had he replied to Terri Butler MP's letter or to Senator Nash's letter coincidentally sent about the same date on this letter, January 2015.

Would have been much better had Senator Cormann had answered a hidden petition asking for an audit of S44 compliance.

An audit of S44 compliance was also asked for in submission to the Joint Select Committee on Electoral Matters just after the 2016 election.  That submission has been ignored by Senator Ryan but maybe now he will look at the audit and allow the Australian Electoral Commission to ask questions about S44, query compliance with S44 and prosecute breaches of S44.

All over red rover.

As a PS it really is an embarrassment that 3 of our elected officials are removed from parliament because they couldn't be bothered checking if they comply with our constitution, even more so that Senators Ryan and Cormann think we the voters should just trust them to tell the truth.



Thank you to those who have PayPal'd me, much appreciated.  Being PayPal I can't thank you personally because your personal details are kept private.  Very much appreciated to have the support, in gifts or words, from so many people over the past long time.  There's that number 44, started in the 44th parliament about section 44 and the other section 44 in the Crimes Act may  be just what convinces parliamentarians to do the legal thing.  Almost forgot the spill vote, Turnbull 54 Abbott 44.  Lucky numbers anyone?

Cheers thanks & goodonya






OR

The misogyny is strong in this one


Just after Tony Abbott was elected Prime Minister I started to look at him being British and found he and I were born in the same year in the same country. Both of us were economic refugees with our families fleeing the wastes of early 60's England.

I tried to find out more about his birth and conversion to being Australian. I had had to become Australian because of my public service career but I was allowed to be a dual national. After hearing the fuss over Julia Gillard I knew he had to have renounced his Britishness but nothing was written anywhere about when it had happened. So I looked, got ignored, got lied to, got threatened, got blocked on social
media by so many politicians. Senator Nash a member of his own government and Terri Butler MP actually wrote to him to clear the matter up. Parliamentary rules say MPs must communicate and PM’s more so but they were women and didn’t count in his minds eye.

It took Scott Ludlam a dual national Kiwi Aussie and twitters from Paul Keating and Senator Hinch and maybe a phone call from my local MP Andy Wallace to get the obnoxious misogynist to recant and admit he weren’t no pommie no more. Bastille day turned into a real bastard for the member for Warringah.

I am personally glad it is over without another section 44 crisis in our parliament. There have been three this current parliament and that is three that need not have happened had Senator Cormann as Special Minister of State responded to a petition asking for an audit of S44 compliance in parliament.

There is a submission in the Joint Select Committee on Electoral Matters investigation of the 2016 election asking for an audit to be conducted and for the Australian Electoral Commission to be allowed to ask about S44, seek answers and prosecute if necessary.

Perhaps one good thing will come out of losing a good parliamentarian like Scott Ludlam? Maybe now MPs will read some of their emails and voters twitter and facebook threads to see what is going on in the world. Had Scott Ludlam read some emails he would have seen this little nutter's request for information on when he renounced his Kiwiness and he might also have seen the change.org petition which asked him to show he has renounced his Kiwidom. Being cloistered behind well meaning staff who kept the nutters at bay cost Senator Ludlam his job.

I am an obnoxious bastard with a massive ego so being ignored for so long has pissed me off but nowhere near as much as I am pissed off at members of our government being ignored by the supposed head of state. His misogyny is utterly amazing. It's no wonder his goal in life was to hide himself away in a kiddy botherers club well away from anyone who was ever female. He must have hated his mother to let her possibly incriminate herself by filling out his application for citizenship. He had just got a law degree and should have been able to read and understand the instructions on the form that an adult child must fill out their own application for citizenship by descent. That didn’t matter though,Ian McPhee was Minister for Immigration and got his law degree at the same Kelloggs packet factory as Abbott. More important than the old school tie was Liberal party membership and being a family fiend. Macca overlooked the untidy legal nicety and granted citizenship.

Because I am such an obnoxious bastard I had the bone and wasn't going to let it go. In the UK at the moment there is a First Tier Tribunal, a full blown judge only court system, looking at releasing information from the Home Office about Mr Abbott's British citizenship. I have sent them a copy of Mr Abbott's letter for them to decide if it matches their information on hand and cancel the court case if it matches. This came about because the Home Office firstly said they couldn't confirm Mr Abbott complies with our constitution and then they said they could neither confirm nor deny he had renounced his British citizenship.

About an hour before Mr Abbott released his renunciation papers I emailed one of the few MPs who read my emails, Andy Wallace, and mentioned that if the court in the UK finds he hasn't renounced they must under UK law advise MI5 that a problem may exist where a commonwealth country has been taken to war without authority by a British subject. Mr Wallace is a barrister so does know the law a bit. If you are the cause of the paper coming out, goodonya Andy Wallace.
