Update – 3 times NO to Local Gov’t

Every State created a Local Government Act AFTER the Australia Act 1986 for their sovereign, independent and federal nation. Therefore in the 1999 Referendum the People again said  NO – to Local Government

In the Local Government Acts they ESTABLISHED, the “Council”

I repeat – the People said NO three times in 1974. 1988 and 1999

Is there a message in this ?
All four Canonical Gospels state that during Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples, he predicted that Peter would deny knowledge of him, stating that Peter would disown him before the rooster crowed the next morning. Following the arrest of Jesus, Peter denied knowing him three times, but after the third denial, heard the rooster crow and recalled the prediction as Jesus turned to look at him. Peter then began to cry bitterly.[2][3] This final incident is known as the Repentance of Peter.[4]

Can you imagine the pollies and councilors weeping in shame cos they have three times denied the wishes of the people ??   yeah right !


Here is the Penhallows Ruling. Please note that at the time of this ruling America operated upon English Law. The part that is of interest is the ruling itself wherein to paraphrase only artificial persons or entities can communicate with other artificial persons or entities. This ruling to date has in my comprehension been challenged or indeed overturned. It can be used in Australian Courts (such that they are)


Penhallow v. Doane’s Administraters (3 U.S. 54; 1 L.Ed. 57; 3 Dall. 54),


Supreme Court of the United States 1795, “Inasmuch as every government is an artificial person, an abstraction, and a creature of the mind only, a government can interface only with other artificial persons. The imaginary, having neither actuality nor substance, is foreclosed from creating and attaining parity with the tangible. The legal manifestation of this is that no government, as well as any law, agency, aspect, court, etc. can concern itself with anything other than corporate, artificial persons and the contracts between them.” S.C.R. 1795, (3 U.S. 54; 1 L.Ed. 57; 3 Dall. 54),
