When a country is under COMMON LAW JURISDICTION, then a FREE MAN has the inalienable Right to TRIAL BY JURY and his CONSENT is required.
But, in Australia (supposedly a COMMON LAW country), it is often ignored and ADMIRALTY LAW is used, (ie: the Law of the Sea – as opposed to the Law of the Land (ie: “legem terrae” of Magna Carta).
Here is what you may encounter:
Recently in a Supreme Court, a defendant, JOE, stated in effect “I am challenging the jurisdiction of the court.” – HIS HONOUR – “Upon what basis?” – JOE – “I have not given my consent.” – HIS HONOUR – “Consent is immaterial.

I have not given my consent to be without a jury.- HIS HONOUR – “I have said your consent is immaterial. The matter is ruled upon. That is the end of it.”
THAT IS THE END OF IT ?….. NO! Stand up for your rights!
