WITHOUT PREJUDICE Mr Joe Hockey, Treasurer

5 Joe, As I understand it from media report (see quotation below) you stated nothing

is

free, and boy do I agree with you.


QUOTE 10 As demand outstripped taxpayers capacity to pay, policies must be changed, either now or more dramatically in the future, Mr Hockey said. I ask Australians not to judge this Budget on what they get or lose today, he said. This Budget is about our quality of life for the years ahead. He said Greek and Spanish youth had been victims of recession and unemployment after those countries lived far beyond their means. We cannot allow our nation to fall into this trap, he said. END QUOTE Boy, do I agree with you! 20 In particular:
QUOTE It will do for people what they cannot do for themselves, but no more, he said. Nothing is free. Someone always pays. END QUOTE

25 As a CONSTITUTIONALIST I am glad that amongst the scoundrels in the parliament we finally have a Member of Parliament who It will do for people what they cannot do for themselves, but no more, 30 I have for many years pursued precisely this and often quoted the Framers of the Constitution:

Mr. GORDON.-There will be more than one sentry. In the case of a federal law, every member of a state Parliament will be a sentry, and, every constituent of a state Parliament will be a sentry. As regards a law passed by a state, every man in the Federal Parliament will be a sentry, and the whole constituency behind the Federal Parliament will be a sentry. END QUOTE

So I welcome that you will adhere to your oath of office and will abide by the constitution and will do what people cannot themselves achieve. But, I do recognise that there is no objection to provide you with relevant information so you as 10 treasurer can act responsible. As you may be aware many a person overpaid by Centrelink, even so beyond their fault, nevertheless had to repay such overpayments and many ended up before the Courts. After all if a person reasonably should have known they were receiving monies they are not entitled upon then they must repay this. 15 As the Framers of the Constitution made clear that Ministers shall be constitutional advisors to the Governor-General:
HANSARD 4-3-1891 Constitution Convention Debates QUOTE Sir HENRY PARKES: The resolutions conclude:

20

An executive, consisting of a governor-general, and such persons as may from time to time be appointed as his advisers, such persons sitting in Parliament, and whose term of office shall depend upon their possessing the confidence of the house of representatives expressed by the support of the majority. What is meant by that is simply to call into existence a ministry to conduct the affairs of the new nation as similar as it can be to the ministry of England-a body of constitutional advisers who shall stand as nearly as possible in the same relation to the representative of the Crown here [start page 27] a her Majesty's imperial advisers stand is relation to the Crown directly. These, then, are the principles which my resolutions seek to lay down as a foundation, as I have already stated, for the new super structure, my object being to invite other gentlemen to work upon this foundation so as to best advance the ends we have in view. END QUOTE HANSARD 17-2-1898 Constitution Convention Debates QUOTE Mr. OCONNOR.We must remember that in any legislation of the Commonwealth we are dealing with the Constitution. Our own Parliaments do as they think fit almost within any limits. In this case the Constitution will be above Parliament, and Parliament will have to conform to it. END QUOTE .

. So, let us look at the constitution. Keep in mind that English is not my native language and 45 neither did I have any formal education and hence my self-professed Crummy English is used. Firstly, the constitution was created under the British Crown, and while the High Court of Australia in Sue v Hill pretended that the Commonwealth of Australia somehow mysteriously became an independent nation, we still remain to be under the Commonwealth of Australia 50 Constitution Act 1900 (UK) and so bound by it. I for one have not detected any provision in the constitution that the High Court of Australia was given legislative or judicial powers to amend unilaterally the true meaning and application of the constitution, but invite you to point out where it is stated if you hold a different perception/view.

Hansard 17-3-1898 Constitution Convention Debates QUOTE Mr. BARTON.Providing, as this Constitution does, for a free people to elect a free Parliament-giving that people through their Parliament the power of the purse-laying at their mercy from day to day the existence of any Ministry which dares by corruption, or drifts through ignorance into, the commission of any act which is unfavorable to the people having this security, it must in its very essence be a free Constitution. Whatever any one may say to the contrary that is secured in the very way in which the freedom of the British Constitution is secured. It is secured by vesting in the people, through their representatives, the power of the purse, and I venture [start page 2477] to say there is no other way of securing absolute freedom to a people than that, unless you make a different kind of Executive than that which we contemplate, and then overload your Constitution with legislative provisions to protect the citizen from interference. Under this Constitution he is saved from every kind of interference. Under this Constitution he has his voice not only in the, daily government of the country, but in the daily determination of the question of whom is the Government to consist. There is the guarantee of freedom in this Constitution. There is the guarantee which none of us have sought to remove, but every one has sought to strengthen. How we or our work can be accused of not providing for the popular liberty is something which I hope the critics will now venture to explain, and I think I have made their work difficult for them. Having provided in that way for a free Constitution, we have provided for an Executive which is charged with the duty of maintaining the provisions of that Constitution; and, therefore, it can only act as the agents of the people. We have provided for a Judiciary, which will determine questions arising under this Constitution, and with all other questions which should be dealt with by a Federal Judiciary and it will also be a High Court of Appeal for all courts in the states that choose to resort to it. In doing these things, have we not provided, first, that our Constitution shall be free: next, that its government shall be by the will of the people, which is the just result of their freedom: thirdly , that the Constitution shall not, nor shall any of its provisions, be twisted or perverted , inasmuch as a court appointed by their own Executive, but acting independently, is to decide what is a perversion of its provisions? We can have every faith in the constitution of that tribunal. It is appointed as the arbiter of the Constitution. It is appointed not to be above the Constitution, for no citizen is above it, but under it; but it is appointed for the purpose of saying that those who are the instruments of the Constitution-the Government and the Parliament of the day-shall not become the masters of those whom, as to the Constitution, they are bound to serve. What I mean is this: That if you, after making a Constitution of this kind, enable any Government or any Parliament to twist or infringe its provisions, then by slow degrees you may have that Constitution-if not altered in terms-so whittled away in operation that the guarantees of freedom which it gives your people will not be maintained; and so, in the highest sense, the court you are creating here, which is to be the final interpreter of that Constitution, will be such a tribunal as will preserve the popular liberty in all these regards, and will prevent, under any pretext of constitutional action, the Commonwealth from dominating the states, or the states from usurping the sphere of the Commonwealth. Having provided for all these things, I think this Convention has done well. END QUOTE

So, we should be clear about it that the constitution is as is unless by a successful section 128 referendum there was an amendment. And, did you notice that the constitution provides for: 45
The Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK) QUOTE 3 Salary of Governor-General There shall be payable to the Queen out of the Consolidated Revenue fund of the Commonwealth, for the salary of the Governor-General, an annual sum which, until the Parliament otherwise provides, shall be ten thousand pounds. The salary of a Governor-General shall not be altered during his continuance in office. END QUOTE

What this means that payments for the Governor-General must come from the Queen and not directly from Consolidated Revenue Funds. Actually the same with Ministers, and we must understand that a Minister must be the person who is the Responsible Minister for a Department. 60 The Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK)

25 Clearly a Minister is defined by the constitution as They shall be members of the Federal Executive Council, and shall be the Queens Ministers of State for the Commonwealth. and there is no such provision in the constitution for a shadow Minister There is nothing wrong with having a shadow as we all have this when the sun or a light might shine upon us from one direction. However, no such thing as a shadow Minister or for a leader of the Opposition to 30 be paid (see below) as if he/she is a Minister. And again any Minister can only be paid by the Queen and not directly from the Consolidated Revenue Funds. Compare it with a teller paying himself/.herself out of the till! That would in my view constitute fraud! And while we are on it, the Framers of the Constitution held that when people are away from 35 their daily job to serve in the parliament than while they would likely have a loss of income the allowance should at least cover some of the loss of income and expenditure. But the allowance cannot be deemed to be a salary.

As you as treasurer may understand an employer is bound by law to provide towards a superannuation scheme, but as not a single Member of Parliament, not even ministers of State are 50 employed by the Commonwealth of Australia then obviously no Member of Parliament can claim any kind of superannuation. Any Member of Parliament who were to somehow claim a superannuation entitlement would in my view violate the provisions of s44 of the constitution and automatically be disqualified from holding a seat in the Parliament. As such as treasurer you better check out if any Member of Parliament is somehow claiming superannuation entitlements 55 while serving in the Parliament as you better have them kicked out and we tax payers (that includes you too) are better off. .

After all, it would be sheer and utter nonsense for any person not employed to demand that the non-employer somehow provides for superannuation! Fancy this, I go to do voluntarily work for some organisation and for this they provide a certain allowance to compensate me like for travelling expenditure, etc, and then somehow I demand 5 some huge windfall of superannuation while not even employed by this organisation. I view this cannot be tolerated. Now, the budget surely is already shaping up because we have already established: 10 No Governor-General can be employed by the Commonwealth of Australia as he/she is employed by the monarch to which the constitution requires the queen to be paid. Any former Governor-General cannot be paid from Consolidated Revenue Funds having left the services of the monarch (in regard of past services as a Governor-General) as the constitution doesnt provide for this. Nothing stops the Monarch to pay the former Governor-General out of her/his own pocket but cannot claim this from Consolidated Revenue Funds. No Minister of State can be employed by the Commonwealth of Australia as he/she is employed by the monarch to which the constitution requires the queen to be paid. Any former Minister of State cannot be paid from Consolidated Revenue Funds having left the services of the monarch (in regard of past services as a Minister of State) as the constitution doesnt provide for this. Nothing stops the Monarch to pay the former Minister of State out of her/his own pocket but cannot claim this from Consolidated Revenue Funds. No Member of Parliament (Minister of State or otherwise) can claim any salary from the Commonwealth of Australia, neither any superannuation from the Commonwealth of Australia. Any former Member of Parliament cannot be paid from Consolidated Revenue Funds having left the services of the monarch (in regard of past services as a Member of Parliament) as the constitution doesnt provide for this. Nothing stops the Monarch to pay the former Member of Parliament out of her/his own pocket but cannot claim this from Consolidated Revenue Funds. No former Governor-General/former Minister of State/former Member of Parliament can obtain any funding after having left his/her position for any office or other perks like free flying around, office, chauffeur driven vehicles, etc. As the Framers of the constitution made clear payment was limited to a member of parliament (and this doesnt include others) for the time the Member of Parliament held a seat and the moment the seat is vacated then all and any payments must stop. In fact this is why for example a Senator elect has to wait until the sitting Senator vacated his/her seat before he/she can take over and can receive an allowance. (See below quotation in that regard also.) No Minister or Prime Minister can receive monies from Consolidated Revenue Funds to spruce up a private residence as the constitution doesnt provide for this. The official residence of the Prime Minister is property of the Commonwealth and therefore the cost that was incurred as to bollards, etc, on the property at the time owned by the then Prime Minister Julia Gillard was in my view fraudulently obtained from Consolidated Revenue Funds. Likewise the Offices for former Prime Ministers and former Governor-Generals in my view are fraudulently obtained from Consolidated Revenue Funds as the constitution doesnt provide for this.

What the above means is that as much as pensioners and others are pursued for overpayments regardless if they were not at fault then so must the commonwealth of Australia pursue those who were fraudulently or otherwise unconstitutionally obtaining financial or other benefits.

It means every former Governor-General, former Prime Minister, and former Minister of State as well as former Member of Parliament who had any unconstitutional financial or other benefits must be required to repay all monies and failing to do so they must be pursued through the courts for this. In my view as with criminals their conduct was the profits of criminal conduct and hence their properties should be confiscated. . Again, It will do for people what they cannot do for themselves, but no more,! Clearly you are in the position to pursue monies to be repaid, and do not forget the interest on it all. Nothing in the constitution provides for any former member of parliament let alone his/her family to travel or otherwise enjoy benefits at cost of Consolidated Revenue Funds such as I understand the widow of a former parliamentarian was doing for about 40 years I understand being the mother of Mr Alexander Downer the former Minister of Foreign affairs. So, claim all monies back. And, while we are on the fraudulent conduct, as I wrote to Mr Malcolm Turnbull after the 2013 election but prior to that he was sworn in as the writs had not been returned, I held it was fraudulent of him and others to use the Member of Parliament for the House of Representatives email address and refer to himself as a Member of Parliament (MP) where in fact he was not so from the moment the House of Representatives was dissolved until he was sworn in as Member of Parliament after the return of the writs. As such any Member of Parliament elect for the House of Representatives, as that was the real status after the election was held and the candidates were declared to have been successful had no entitlement to use mobiles, travel or whatever as if they were members of parliament! As the Framers of the Constitution made clear, a person may be elected but may decline to take up the seat or may be held to be ineligible to take up the seat by the time the writs are returned. So can you understand that all those Member of Parliament elect for the House of Representatives had no constitutional entitlement of any funding as a Member of Parliament when not as yet having taken up the seat for which he/she was elected? For sure any Member of Parliament for the House of Representatives elect who became chosen by the Governor-General to be a minister of State could then legitimately while in office claim for relevant expenditure but still couldnt use the email address as if being a Member of Parliament or claim to be a Member of Parliament. With Senators (except with a Double dissolution) they remain to be Members of Parliament until their seat is vacated and so legitimately can use their email addresses. However, I view that where there is an election then no Member of Parliament of either houses should be allowed to use their parliamentarian email addresses or staff for benefit of elections.

Misuse of Public Funds Public Funds may not be Used for Personal Purposes The starting point for any analysis concerning the misuse of public funds begins with the principle that public funds must be expended for an authorized public purpose. An expenditure is made for a public purpose when its purpose is to benefit the public interest rather than private individuals or private purposes. Once a public purpose is established, the expenditure must still be authorized. A public official possesses only those powers that are conferred by law, either expressly or impliedly. The California Constitution and a variety of state statutes make it clear that public funds may not be expended for purposes that are primarily personal. Such expenditures are neither for a public purpose nor are they authorized. The prohibition against using public funds for personal purposes does not mean that no personal benefit may result from an expenditure of public funds. p6 25-4-2014 INSPECTOR-RIKATI about the BLACK HOLE in the CONSTITUTION-DVD A 1st edition limited special numbered book on Data DVD ISBN 978-0-9803712-6-0 PLEASE NOTE: You may order books in the INSPECTOR-RIKATI series by making a reservation, See also Http://www.schorel-hlavka.com Blog at Http://www.scrib.com/InspectorRikati

For example, the payment of a public employees salary confers a personal benefit on the employee, but it is an appropriate expenditure of public funds because it is procuring the services of the employee for public purposes. The misuse of public funds occurs when the personal benefit conferred by a public expenditure is not merely incidental. The term public funds is not limited to money, but includes anything of value belonging to a public agency such as equipment, supplies, compensated staff time, and use of telephones, computers, and fax machines and other equipment and resources.

Examples of Misuse of Public Funds

15

1. In People v. Dillon, a city commissioner used official government discounts to purchase items for himself and others. This was a misuse of public funds, even though those receiving the discount paid for the items with personal funds. 2. In People v. Sperl, a county marshal furnished a deputy marshal and a county vehicle to transport a political candidate, his staff and family. 3. In People v. Battin, a county supervisor used his county compensated staff to work on his political campaign for Lieutenant Governor. 4. In People v. Harby, a city official used a city car, entrusted to him for use in connection with official business, to take a pleasure trip from Los Angeles to Great Falls, Montana and back. Violations of the laws prohibiting misuse of public funds may subject the violator to criminal and civil sanctions.

20 These penalties may include imprisonment for up to four years and a bar from holding office.

State Agency Participation in Ballot Measure Elections There is another issue involving the misuse of public funds that does not concern the personal use of public funds. This issue concerns the use of public funds in connection with ballot measure campaigns. Following is a list of what well cover in this section. Stanson v. Mott Endorsements and Informational Materials Improperly Using Public Funds may Trigger Fines

30 Using Public Funds and Ballot Measure Campaigns


The California Supreme Court case of Stanson v. Mott is the cornerstone case concerning the expenditure of public funds in election campaigns. In Stanson v. Mott, a private citizen sued the Director of the California Department of Parks and Recreation, challenging the directors expenditure of Department funds to support passage of a bond act appearing on a statewide ballot. The Supreme Court unanimously found that the director had acted unlawfully, concluding that in the absence of clear and explicit legislative authorization, a public agency may not expend public funds to promote a partisan position in an election campaign. Stanson v. Mott The Supreme Court wrote in Stanson: A fundamental precept of this nations democratic electoral process is that the government may not take sides in election contests or bestow an unfair advantage on one of several comp eting factions. A principal danger feared by our countrys founders lay in the possibility that the holders of governmental authority would use official power improperly to perpetuate themselves, or their allies, in office.... The Supreme Court further wrote in Stanson ...The selective use of public funds in election campaigns, of course, raises the specter of just such an improper distortion of the democratic electoral process. Endorsements and Informational Materials: Subsequently, court cases have said that a government agency may endorse a measure that is related to its expertise so long as it does not expend funds to promote its passage. Similarly, a government agency may draft legislation or a ballot measure related to its expertise, but may not promote the passage of the measure in an election campaign. Here is Jose Lopez discussing the findings in the Stanson case in regard to the agency participation in ballot measure elections. 1. The Stanson Court also noted that if a state agency or department has authority to disseminate information relating to its activities, it may spend funds to provide the public with a fair presentation of relevant information. p7 25-4-2014 INSPECTOR-RIKATI about the BLACK HOLE in the CONSTITUTION-DVD A 1st edition limited special numbered book on Data DVD ISBN 978-0-9803712-6-0 PLEASE NOTE: You may order books in the INSPECTOR-RIKATI series by making a reservation, See also Http://www.schorel-hlavka.com Blog at Http://www.scrib.com/InspectorRikati

2. The Court found that it would be contrary to the public interest to bar knowledgeable public age ncies from disclosing relevant information to the public, so long as such disclosure is full and impartial and does not amount to improper campaign activity. 3. To be fair, a presentation must consider all important points and provide equal treatment to bot h sides of the issue. Improperly Using Public Funds may Trigger Fines: Improper use of public funds also may trigger fines from the Fair Political Practices Commission for failing to report campaign contributions. In 1996, Sacramento County paid a $10,000 fine to the Commission in connection with a utility bill insert explaining the effect on the county of several ballot measures. The Commission ruled that the insert advocated a position on the ballot measures and was not a neutral and fair presentation of the facts. Let's Review TRUE or FALSE: Expenditures made to benefit the public are permissible. Answer: False. The expenditure must also be authorized to be permissible. Evelyn is an agency secretary. She has just completed a long day and she wishes to make a few telephone calls

10

15 before she leaves her office to invite potential contributors to the incumbent Governors campaign fundraising
dinner. Since the people she will be calling frequently have dealings with the state government on a variety of issues, may she charge these calls to the state? Yes or No. Answer: No. Evelyn may not charge the calls to the state as they are for personal political purposes rather than for a public purpose.

20 Let's Review
Ramon is the director of a state department. He wishes to produce informational materials to answer questions about the impact of a ballot measure. Select the situation in which it is permissible to expend funds for this purpose. a. The materials stop short of advocating a vote for or against the measure. b. The materials do not make false statements. c. The materials present a balanced description of the favorable and unfavorable impacts of the measure. Answer: c. The materials must present a balanced description of the favorable and unfavorable impacts of the measure. Remember These Points Expenditures must be for a public purpose Expenditures must be authorized Public funds may not be expended for personal use Information must be fairly presented Violations bring criminal, civil and administrative sanctions

As such, when members of a political party are phoning around at taxpayers cost as to who shall 40 be the alternative Prime Minister (such as that eventuated with John Howard, Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard) then by s44 they are disqualified from holding as seat in the Parliament. Likewise if a Minister attends to a political function because of being a Minister of State and then charges those attending for it, regardless if this is paid to others, then this becomes in my view effectively an Office of Profit in violation of s44 of the constitution. 45 It should be understood that albeit the Governor-General may choose people of a political party which may have the most seat in the Parliament or is anticipated to do so after the writs are

returned, the Governor-General is not bound to appoint such person but can in fact, for argument sake commission me to form a government and do so for up to 3 months unless I am elected to the Parliament. In my view when it was rumoured that Philip Ruddock was letting people naturalize provided 5 they paid $10,000 to the Liberal Party, then this constituted an OFFICE OF PROFIT, regardless if the monies was paid to the Liberal Party. The same with when a political party accepts donations it becomes to me an fraudulent conduct as often or in general those providing such donations expect to be rewarded. It was alleged that for example the ethanol industry provided a huge donation to the Liberal party and after the 10 election was awarded with a grand by far exceeding the donation. As such, effectively the monies was from consolidate Revenue Funds and so may be deemed to have constituted as an OFFICE FOR PRIOFIT. .

Mr. BARTON (New South Wales).-No, there would be no prohibition in that respect. The offices of Speaker and Chairman of Committees are not offices of profit under the Crown. They are parliamentary offices, and Parliament has always retained a power over its own Estimates to the extent that really the Speaker and President of the local Chambers have always exercised a right to submit their own Estimates, and those Estimates, as a rule, as far as I know in practice in my own colony, are altogether untouched by the Government of the day. Now, these are political offices, but not offices of profit under the Crown. I think that that is the principle that Parliament has always asserted in England and elsewhere. As to the word "person," the British Interpretation Act of 1889, which will be largely applied to the construction of this statute by the Imperial authorities, provides that where the word " person" is used, unless the Act otherwise provides, the word "corporation" shall be included. Mr. HIGGINS (Victoria).-If a man agrees to get paid for services done in Parliament, or for the Commonwealth, and if he does the work, and, having done the work, he resigns, is there no penalty? Is there no punishment in such a case for a man who guarantees that he will use his position in Parliament in order to make money, and, having made it, resigns! Mr. BARTON (New South Wales).-No; and there is a reason for that.

Convention at Sydney as a matter [start page 2449] of policy. Mr. O'Connor suggests that it is quite probable that in such a case an action would lie at common law. However that may be, the policy of inserting such a provision was reversed in Sydney, and therefore the Drafting Committee could not frame any proposal to that effect.

Bus as a Minister and so a constitutional advisor to the Governor-General obviously you are or ought to be aware of this and so why are you then not stopping the rot? As for the issue Nothing is free. Someone always pays. Did you realise that people generally (other than Politicians perhaps) do not retire at age 30 or so but after age 65 after having paid 15 taxes, including the levy towards the pension which was introduced many decades ago. So, I can assure you that when my wife became aware you seemed to have the notion that she at 81 years young seems to portray as if she is getting a handout she was wondering, so to say, if you had all your marbles in the correct order. After all you ought to have been aware she was paying decade after decade for old age pension just that the lot of you in the parliament squandered it all! 20 And then consider that we all pay taxes in whatever we purchase and so if you want to make an issue that nothing is for free tell that at the plane loads and boat loads of people who enter into Australia and are getting all kinds of benefits to which they never paid a single cent! They are getting it free. Free accommodation and even getting paid and this while Australians who have worked and paid taxes can end up on the street. 25 Dont tell me I am getting anything for free because I am a taxpayer who had his taxes used by you lot. If it wasnt for the taxpayers you as a treasurer wouldnt have the monies, so to say, to live it up, and neither so your mates. I below will quote some material I received in emails and I urge you to consider it all. Shame on you for daring to claim that Australians are somehow getting it all for free. 30 When you look at the monies handed out by the Federal Government to numerous nations, including Indonesia to establish schools, etc, this even so the Commonwealth of Australia has no constitutional powers as to education, other than to fund students, then it are the Indonesians and others who are getting it for free, and unconstitutionally that is. As such, so to say, you are barking up to the wrong tree, and how come that I find this not strange considering the level of 35 intelligence, or the lack thereof shown by what was stated by you? Now consider for example that the Federal Government (ALP) in 2009 tried pension payments and other welfare payments to the CPI (Consumer Price Index) yet why are you so silent to the states (including municipal/shire councils) to abide by this not to raise charges/rates/etc above the CPI? 40 Your silence is deafening! In case you fail to understand it the Commonwealth of Australia bases the pensions and other payments to the CPI and as such not to undermine the intentions of the Commonwealth the States

are bound to ensure not to increase its charges above the CPOI as not to act in violation of the Commonwealths intentions. By 1904 High Court of Australia decision in Sydney Council v Commonwealth the Court held that councils are exercising delegated powers of the State and as such therefore councils should neither increase any charges (including rates) above the CPI. 5 Actually since the Commonwealth commenced to have the Land Tax Office on 11-11-1910 the states and so the councils no longer could raise land taxes. As the Framers of the Constitution made clear once the commonwealth exercised its legislative powers within the constitution then the States had to retire from this!

10 Convention)
QUOTE Sir JOHN BRAY: What the hon. gentleman has said is quite right so far as the purposes of this section are concerned as regards reckoning the time of retirement. But in another part of the bill it is provided that the senators are to be paid for their services, and the question arises, does the term of service of a senator for the purposes of payment begin from the date of his election, from the date when he is sworn in, or from the first day of January? HON. MEMBERS: On the day when he is sworn in! Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: Surely when his service begins!

20

Sir: I think we ought to have that fixed. It seems to me very undesirable to provide, as suggested by Colonel Smith, that although a senator is elected in June, his term of service and payment for service shall not begin until the following January. Mr. CLARK: He will not do anything until the following January! Sir JOHN BRAY: For the purposes of retirement, a date should be fixed from which the time should be reckoned; but for all other purposes a senator ought to be a senator from the day he is chosen. Mr. BAKER: How can he be when there is another man in his place? Sir JOHN BRAY: I can quite see that for the purposes of this section the provision as contained in the clause is right; but, as regards other portions of the bill, it seems to me that it is not right, and the question ought to be clearly understood.

Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: So far as the objection with regard to payment is concerned, there is a good deal in it, and the matter should be dealt with now. The clause only deals with the first senators. Afterwards the term of service begins on the 1st of January. I suppose a senator can hardly be called a senator until the 1st of January arrives. He will be a senator elect, but he will not be a senator really until that day. If parliament is in session on the 1st of January, he will walk in and take his seat, and the other man will walk out, and his pay, I apprehend, will begin on the same day. But the hon. member has pointed out a blot with respect to the first senators. A man might be elected in December and claim twelve months' pay, dating from the previous January. This, I think, would be remedied by inserting in the second paragraph the words "for the purposes of his retirement." Mr. WRIXON: The matter will want a little thinking over, because I apprehend a man is not a senator until he presents himself and takes the oath. Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: Why not? Mr. WRIXON: He might refuse to take the oath, and so would be disqualified from the beginning. It is not until be presents himself and takes the oath that he is really a senator. He is in potentiality a senator; but he is p11 25-4-2014 INSPECTOR-RIKATI about the BLACK HOLE in the CONSTITUTION-DVD A 1st edition limited special numbered book on Data DVD ISBN 978-0-9803712-6-0 PLEASE NOTE: You may order books in the INSPECTOR-RIKATI series by making a reservation, See also Http://www.schorel-hlavka.com Blog at Http://www.scrib.com/InspectorRikati

not completely clad in that position until he [start page 602] appears at the table and takes the oath, and I apprehend he is not entitled to payment until that takes place. I would suggest that it is somewhat hazardous to make an amendment at the table in a bill of this kind, which has been carefully considered; and if these matters are home in mind, they can be afterwards dealt with by the draftsman. I would deprecate any hurried amendment on the spot, where it may not be required. Sir HARRY ATKINSON: The clause states that the term of service of a senator shall not begin until the 1st January following the day of his election. If a vacancy occurs, and a senator is elected in June, he then becomes a senator; but, according to this part of the clause, he cannot become an actual senator until the following January. Though parliament might be in session, he would be unable to take his seat. I would suggest to the hon. member, Sir Samuel Griffith, that he should take a note of this point, and consider it. I do not think we could make any amendment here that would meet the case. For the purposes of this particular clause the provision is right enough; but I think there will be a difficulty in regard to payment, and also as to vacancies occurring. Sir JOHN BRAY: I quite agree with Sir Samuel Griffith, that if we are not to overlook this question entirely it ought to be settled somewhere in this clause, and if the hon. gentleman sees no strong objection to such a course I shall move the insertion at the beginning of the second paragraph of the words "for the purposes of this section." It would be manifestly absurd in regard to the first election of senators to say that if a man is elected in September or October the term of his service shall begin from the preceding January, and that he shall be entitled to all the privileges of a senator from that date. It is quite possible that this may not be the best amendment that can ultimately be made, but it seems to me clear that the second paragraph was drawn with the idea, that it applied to this section only and not to other portions of the bill. I beg, therefore, to move as an amendment: That before the words "The term of service" line 11, the words "For the purposes of this section" be inserted.

25

Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: That is quite correct: those are the right words! Amendment agreed to. Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: In reference to the point raised by the hon. member, Sir Harry Atkinson, in regard to vacancies occurring by death, the difficulty would be met by substituting for the words "retiring senators" the words "senators retiring by rotation."

30

Amendment (by Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH) proposed: That the words retiring senators," line 17, be omitted with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words "senators retiring by rotation." Mr. MARMION: Is this intended to refer to senators retiring by rotation throughout, or only in the first instance?

35

Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: Always! Mr. MARMION: It seems to me that there are two portions of the bill which may be affected by the proposed amendment. In the first place, unless it is distinctly laid down in the bill that a senator, though elected, does not become a senator until the 1st of January, there will be during that interval twelve senators instead of eight; because there will be four who will not retire for some considerable period after the election. There is another view of the case. A senator may be prevented for a period from holding his seat in the local house of representatives. When he is elected to the senate, he cannot sit any longer in the state house of representatives, and if his election to the senate takes place some time prior to the end of the year, unless it is distinctly laid down that the mere fact of his election [start page 603] does not make him a senator, he will be obliged to retire from the local house of representatives. Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: There is no doubt a little difficulty. In the cases of which we have experience, members of parliament are elected by a constituency that may be said to be in permanent session. Here we have to deal with the case of a constituency which is in session only sometimes. We must, therefore, deal p12 25-4-2014 INSPECTOR-RIKATI about the BLACK HOLE in the CONSTITUTION-DVD A 1st edition limited special numbered book on Data DVD ISBN 978-0-9803712-6-0 PLEASE NOTE: You may order books in the INSPECTOR-RIKATI series by making a reservation, See also Http://www.schorel-hlavka.com Blog at Http://www.scrib.com/InspectorRikati

specially with it. There cannot be more than eight senators at a time. There will be eight senators and four senators elect; for a senator elect is not a senator until his term begins. There is no reason why a member of the house of representatives should not be elected to be a senator in June; next January he becomes a senator and ceases to be a member of the house of representatives.

Again, your silence is deafening! Instead of going on and on about people cannot get things for free, or something of that nature, I view a competent treasurer would have made clear to the States (so councils) stop freeloading 10 and fraudulently claiming monies from citizens and make sure you do not exceed any increases above the CPI regarding pensioners and other welfare recipients. You see, when pensioners and others receive a CPI increase but are slugged twice as much just by the unconstitutional rates from councils then this clearly violates the Commonwealth intentions to provide a reasonable amount of pension for the pensioners and others. Where then the State increases its charges well 15 beyond the CPI then this drives the following CPI up and we are so to say in a revolving door situation. And the more everything increases in cost the more wages will need to go up to keep pace and then this in turn causes increase of prices and we price ourselves out of the world market. Therefore proper and competent financial management would be for the Commonwealth to make sure the States do not increase charges beyond the CPI. 20 The Framers of the Constitution made clear that people had certain rights to be protected by the Commonwealth.

40 AUSTRALIANS will pay more for government services and face harsher means testing on welfare as Joe
Hockey warned nothing is free. And the Treasurer said last night that people would lose some benefits they had come to take for granted in Mays Budget, and beyond. He said such reforms were an inescapable truth.

45 Mr Hockey said the Commission of Audit, due for release next Thursday, found a serious spending problem.
The age pension would cost a whopping $72 billion in a decade, casting a shadow over all other spending, and the bill for Medicare would nearly double to $38 billion. Government spending had tripled in 40 years, to $15,000 per Australian. p14 25-4-2014 INSPECTOR-RIKATI about the BLACK HOLE in the CONSTITUTION-DVD A 1st edition limited special numbered book on Data DVD ISBN 978-0-9803712-6-0 PLEASE NOTE: You may order books in the INSPECTOR-RIKATI series by making a reservation, See also Http://www.schorel-hlavka.com Blog at Http://www.scrib.com/InspectorRikati

Mr Hockey has been warning for weeks the pension age, eligibility and indexation rules may have to change though Prime Minister Tony Abbott has indicated that changes wont happen until after the next election. Mr Hockey said means testing must become even more important. The Government would still support the vulnerable, Mr Hockey said.

5 It will do for people what they cannot do for themselves, but no more, he said.
Nothing is free. Someone always pays. More co-payments would encourage moderation in demand for government -provided goods and services. The comments suggested further changes beyond a $6 co-payment expected to be introduced for GP visits. Mr Hockey said unemployment assistance should help the jobless move into work rather than trap them.

10 And Australia needed to consider how to help people restart careers, acknowledging some could not do the same
work all their lives. We cant allow people over the age of 50 not to have an opportunity to go into another career, Mr Hockey said. The audit highlighted ballooning spending in welfare, health, education and defence. As demand outstripped taxpayers capacity to pay, policies must be changed, either now or more dramatically in

15 the future, Mr Hockey said.


I ask Australians not to judge this Budget on what they get or lose today, he said. This Budget is about our quality of life for the years ahead. He said Greek and Spanish youth had been victims of recession and unemployment after those countries lived far beyond their means.

20 We cannot allow our nation to fall into this trap, he said.

Also wasn't the state government supposed to save hundreds of millions of dollars annually by abolishing the printing and mailing of vehicle registration labels? This fee increase is unjustifiable greed and the government will get away with it as usual because most people just grudgingly accept it.

10 Napthine Government announces $25 base increase for car registration


Herald Sun Matt Johnston April 24, 2014 2:20PM

15
VICTORIAN motorists will be slugged almost $800 in car registration payments next year after the Napthine Government revealed a $25 base increase. The fee hike will see the base registration for a car hit $270. When inflation increases, insurance and stamp duty components are added in, Victorian drivers face a $791.91

20 registration renewal charge next year.


The hike was announced as a revenue measure ahead of the Victorian Budget. It will raise $137 million next year. Is the rego hike justified? Have your say below Stamp duty on the purchase of new or used cars will also increase, by about $40 for a $20,000 car.

25 Treasurer Michael OBrien said he understood the measure would not be welcomed by motorists, but it was
important the government presented a responsible budget that enabled it to pay for infrastructure upgrades. The $25 fee increase for motor vehicle registration amounts to less than 50 cents a week, he said. We appreciate that any increase in car rego is not likely to be welcomed, but we do note that we will be delivering major transport infrastructure in this budget that will be of direct benefit to Victorians.

30 The stamp duty increase will raise $37.5 million in 2014/15, while the light vehicle registration fee increase will
raise $99.3 million. Mr OBrien said Victorias share of GST revenue was to blame for the registration and stamp duty increases. Victorias GST share is down from 90 cents in the dollar to 88 cents, creating a $286 million shortfall, he said. The additional charges would fund major transport infrastructure projects to be announced in the May 6 budget, and

35 support opportunities for workers in Victorias ailing car industry, he said.


The registration fee for a light vehicle will be $270 in 2014/15. The stamp duty increase will raise $37.5 million in 2014/15, while the light vehicle registration fee increase will raise $99.3 million. Mr OBrien said Victorias share of GST revenue was to blame for the registration and stamp duty increases.

OPPOSITION treasury spokesman Joe Hockey has defended MPs' entitlements, saying they are not overly generous. The Sunday Herald Sun today reported Federal MP entitlements could be slashed as the cost to the taxpayer for expenses has blown out to $1.65 million for each of the nation's 226 parliamentarians. Mr Hockey defended the system, saying it covers the costs of the job. "And when you represent more than 100,000 people .... as a member of parliament, the costs of doing business is expensive," he told Network Ten. "Ultimately you have got to pay for democracy." The Department of Finance has warned the Gillard Government of an expectation to reform MPs' entitlements and told them the generous scheme would cost $373 million this financial year - $1.65 million for each of Australia's 226 federal politicians.

The Department of Finance also warned Mr Gray that he would have to deal with allegations of misuse of entitlements and that he should expect heavy lobbying from his parliamentary colleagues about their entitlements. MPs get a range of entitlements, including domestic and overseas travel, chauffeur-driven and self-drive vehicles, electorate allowances and staff. The Belcher Review was ordered by former Special Minister of State Joe Ludwig, who promised to make the final report public. Hockey defends election costings Joe Hockey again defended the Coalition's election costings, saying Treasury does not always get it right. The Coalition's numbers are "exactly right", he told Channel 10, despite Treasury estimating a deficit of between $7 billion and $11 billion. "Treasury isn't always right," he said, noting "spectacular misjudgments" previously made on mining revenues and unemployment figures. Mr Hockey wants an independent agency to undertake all future costings and says the Opposition will introduce legislation to allow for it. "There are a vast array of people who have an input into budget debate ... you've just got to rely on the best advice available." Costings 'laughable' Trade Minister Craig Emerson says it's "laughable" that the Coalition continues to rely on private accounting instead of Treasury analysis. And he insists the budget will be back to surplus by 2013, despite fluctuating commodity prices tied to the mining tax. "We're heading towards a surplus and we rely, unlike the Coalition, on Treasury forecasts on commodity prices," he told Sky News. Dr Emerson compared estimates from the mining tax with the long standing petroleum resource rent tax. "The task of predicting oil prices over the forward estimates has never been an easy task but it hasn't meant that the budget has lacked integrity." "In fact the Coalition got $16 billion out of the petroleum resource rent tax and it didn't bugger up their budgets." There are "no grounds for pessimism" regarding China's growth, he added. "What's happening in China is a phenomenon, just about every time that we feel we've got a fix on what's going on in China, it's bigger than that."

50 In a speech at a Sydney investment conference this morning, Stevens backed up comments by the RBA deputy
governor last week that the bank was happy to rebuild its capital reserves over time. The RBA certainly didnt ask for Hockeys $8.8 billion capital injection and didnt think it was necessary.

In the careful phrasing that characterises the Reserve Bank, Stevens today went further than his deputy. Reduce the three concluding paragraphs of his speech to bullet points, this is what you get: The Australian dollar is going to fall. The Aussies rise shrank the value of the RBAs foreign reserves and, therefore, the banks capital by more than the bank thought prudent. (By implication, a falling Aussie will boost the RBAs foreign reserv es.) The RBA wanted to rebuild its capital over several years by retaining its profits and not paying the government dividends. Hockeys $8.8 billion injection this year means dividends will be paid to the government over the next few years.

10 But dont take my word for it. Heres how Stevens explains Hockeys borrowing binge:
The high exchange rate has also had a significant impact on the Reserve Bank's own balance sheet. It led to a decline in the value of the Bank's foreign assets and hence a diminution in the Bank's capital, to a level well below that judged by the Reserve Bank Board to be prudent. This has been a topic of some interest of late. Our annual reports have made quite clear over several years now that, while this rundown in capital in the face of a very large valuation loss was exactly what such reserves were designed for, we considered it prudent to rebuild the capital at the earliest opportunity. It has been clear that the Bank saw a strong case not to pay a dividend to the Commonwealth during this period, preferring instead to retain earnings, so far as possible, to increase the Bank's capital. That rebuilding could in fact have taken quite a few years, given the low level of earnings. That is the background to the recent decision by the Treasurer to act to strengthen the Bank's balance sheet, in

15

20 accordance with a commitment he made prior to the election. The effect of this is that instead of it taking many years
to rebuild the capital, it will occur in the current year. This results in a stronger balance sheet on average, and makes it likely that a regular flow of dividends to the Commonwealth can be resumed at a much earlier date than would otherwise have been the case. So Labors deficit blows out to about $40 billion this year, but H ockeys heroic efforts to reduce the debt in the

25 years ahead will be enhanced by a rich stream of dividends from the RBA. The last time the Aussie had a sharp fall,
the RBA paid the government a dividend of more than $5 billion. Trader Joe is playing the forex market with borrowed money. Last week the RBA deputy governor, Philip Lowe, said the level of the banks capital reserves had not been keeping him awake at night. The board had wanted to rebuild the capital level over time but the government wanted to do it immediately. The official line from the Treasurer is that he found the world to be a dangerous place on his trip to Washington. Today Glenn Stevens said: There was a distinctly more relaxed tone to the discussions in and around the IMF and G20 meet ings in Washington in October than there had been at like meetings earlier in the year.

taxpayers about $300 million a year. In opposition, Hockey used to make a big deal about the interest bill being racked up by government debt. If Trader Joes forex bet pays off, it will all work out in the longer term, but forex is a notoriously dangerous game. As far as can be told from the you dont need to know government, Hockeys bet has not been on the advice of Treasury or the RBA. Michael Pascoe is a BusinessDay contributing editor END QUOTE

And as to payments of Members of parliament lets consider the following:


Hansard 2-4-1891 Constitution Convention Debates (Official Record of the Debates of the National Australasian Convention) QUOTE Sir JOHN BRAY: What the hon. gentleman has said is quite right so far as the purposes of this section are concerned as regards reckoning the time of retirement. But in another part of the bill it is provided that the senators are to be paid for their services, and the question arises, does the term of service of a senator for the purposes of payment begin from the date of his election, from the date when he is sworn in, or from the first day of January? HON. MEMBERS: On the day when he is sworn in! Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: Surely when his service begins! Sir: I think we ought to have that fixed. It seems to me very undesirable to provide, as suggested by Colonel Smith, that although a senator is elected in June, his term of service and payment for service shall not begin until the following January. Mr. CLARK: He will not do anything until the following January! Sir JOHN BRAY: For the purposes of retirement, a date should be fixed from which the time should be reckoned; but for all other purposes a senator ought to be a senator from the day he is chosen.

Mr. BAKER: How can he be when there is another man in his place? Sir JOHN BRAY: I can quite see that for the purposes of this section the provision as contained in the clause is right; but, as regards other portions of the bill, it seems to me that it is not right, and the question ought to be clearly understood. p22 25-4-2014 INSPECTOR-RIKATI about the BLACK HOLE in the CONSTITUTION-DVD A 1st edition limited special numbered book on Data DVD ISBN 978-0-9803712-6-0 PLEASE NOTE: You may order books in the INSPECTOR-RIKATI series by making a reservation, See also Http://www.schorel-hlavka.com Blog at Http://www.scrib.com/InspectorRikati

Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: So far as the objection with regard to payment is concerned, there is a good deal in it, and the matter should be dealt with now. The clause only deals with the first senators. Afterwards the term of service begins on the 1st of January. I suppose a senator can hardly be called a senator until the 1st of January arrives. He will be a senator elect, but he will not be a senator really until that day. If parliament is in session on the 1st of January, he will walk in and take his seat, and the other man will walk out, and his pay, I apprehend, will begin on the same day. But the hon. member has pointed out a blot with respect to the first senators. A man might be elected in December and claim twelve months' pay, dating from the previous January. This, I think, would be remedied by inserting in the second paragraph the words "for the purposes of his retirement." Mr. WRIXON: The matter will want a little thinking over, because I apprehend a man is not a senator until he presents himself and takes the oath. Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: Why not? Mr. WRIXON: He might refuse to take the oath, and so would be disqualified from the beginning. It is not until be presents himself and takes the oath that he is really a senator. He is in potentiality a senator; but he is not completely clad in that position until he [start page 602] appears at the table and takes the oath, and I apprehend he is not entitled to payment until that takes place. I would suggest that it is somewhat hazardous to make an amendment at the table in a bill of this kind, which has been carefully considered; and if these matters are home in mind, they can be afterwards dealt with by the draftsman. I would deprecate any hurried amendment on the spot, where it may not be required. Sir HARRY ATKINSON: The clause states that the term of service of a senator shall not begin until the 1st January following the day of his election. If a vacancy occurs, and a senator is elected in June, he then becomes a senator; but, according to this part of the clause, he cannot become an actual senator until the following January. Though parliament might be in session, he would be unable to take his seat. I would suggest to the hon. member, Sir Samuel Griffith, that he should take a note of this point, and consider it. I do not think we could make any amendment here that would meet the case. For the purposes of this particular clause the provision is right enough; but I think there will be a difficulty in regard to payment, and also as to vacancies occurring. Sir JOHN BRAY: I quite agree with Sir Samuel Griffith, that if we are not to overlook this question entirely it ought to be settled somewhere in this clause, and if the hon. gentleman sees no strong objection to such a course I shall move the insertion at the beginning of the second paragraph of the words "for the purposes of this section." It would be manifestly absurd in regard to the first election of senators to say that if a man is elected in September or October the term of his service shall begin from the preceding January, and that he shall be entitled to all the privileges of a senator from that date. It is quite possible that this may not be the best amendment that can ultimately be made, but it seems to me clear that the second paragraph was drawn with the idea, that it applied to this section only and not to other portions of the bill. I beg, therefore, to move as an amendment: That before the words "The term of service" line 11, the words "For the purposes of this section" be inserted. Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: That is quite correct: those are the right words!

Amendment agreed to. Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: In reference to the point raised by the hon. member, Sir Harry Atkinson, in regard to vacancies occurring by death, the difficulty would be met by substituting for the words "retiring senators" the words "senators retiring by rotation." Amendment (by Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH) proposed:

45

That the words retiring senators," line 17, be omitted with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words "senators retiring by rotation."

Mr. MARMION: Is this intended to refer to senators retiring by rotation throughout, or only in the first instance? Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: Always! Mr. MARMION: It seems to me that there are two portions of the bill which may be affected by the proposed amendment. In the first place, unless it is distinctly laid down in the bill that a senator, though elected, does not become a senator until the 1st of January, there will be during that interval twelve senators instead of eight; because there will be four who will not retire for some considerable period after the election. There is another view of the case. A senator may be prevented for a period from holding his seat in the local house of representatives. When he is elected to the senate, he cannot sit any longer in the state house of representatives, and if his election to the senate takes place some time prior to the end of the year, unless it is distinctly laid down that the mere fact of his election [start page 603] does not make him a senator, he will be obliged to retire from the local house of representatives. Sir SAMUEL GRIFFITH: There is no doubt a little difficulty. In the cases of which we have experience, members of parliament are elected by a constituency that may be said to be in permanent session. Here we have to deal with the case of a constituency which is in session only sometimes. We must, therefore, deal specially with it. There cannot be more than eight senators at a time. There will be eight senators and four senators elect; for a senator elect is not a senator until his term begins. There is no reason why a member of the house of representatives should not be elected to be a senator in June; next January he becomes a senator and ceases to be a member of the house of representatives. Amendment agreed to; clause, as amended, agreed to.

Now, lets have a proper consideration of this. While politicians are using Consolidated Revenue 5 Funds to provide for equipment so people (not taxpayers to the Commonwealth of Australia) can access drink water, while in the Mallee more than a 100,000 people are caused to do without. They are provided with untreated water as I view it sewerage water and yet slugged more to pay for this then so to say is the cost of a years registration. Where is the Federal government about the basic human rights of Australians, I may ask? 10 . And, when we consider the fact that the Commonwealth has the constitutional powers as to weight and measurements, yet allows (albeit unconstitutionally) for States to use alleged speed reading cameras without compliance to Commonwealth provisions then surely we need to have Members of Parliament who are less interested in their own personal greed and more concerned 15 about the plight inflicted upon Australians. So much more issues to raise but for now you may get the message? If you really are serious about matters then stop the rot in the Parliament and so the rorting! I look forwards to your details response, if any courtesy will eventuate as such. 20 Awaiting your response, G. H. Schorel-Hlavka O.W.B. (Friends call me Gerrit)
