Please be advised that we have started a Go Fund Me campaign to have all convictions against Heavy Vehicle Drivers across Australia who have been convicted of offences under the Heavy Vehicle National Law 2012 (Qld) in the State of Queensland removed and all penalties stricken from the record and all fines repaid to those drivers.
The reason is that since 23 August 2012 the Queensland Transport “authority” and the Queensland Police have taken all these matters to the wrong courts under the wrong jurisdiction. The Go Fund Me web page https://www.gofundme.com/manage/freedom-from-dictatorial-bureaucrats explains in detail.
and I say again, the law does not exist.
But it raises another interesting consideration, insofar as the rabied sons of bachelors in Canberra took it to her to sign, does it indicate that they are promulgating laws under BOTH constitutions?
It still begs the defence, “show your Crown Authority” and prove it.
correct Old Kodger.Ed
I have no wish to enter into an argument with “the experts”, but doesn’t that mean SHE DID NOT ASSENT TO THE ACT BECOMING A STATUE LAW?
Gooday Old Kodger the Queen indeed did sign the legislation but she signed it at the top of the page which means she merely noted the contents, according to Royal Titles and Styles experts.Editor
A fine idea, BUT take your challenge back to it’s roots. There have been NO acts of parliament since 1972/3, (pre. Whitlam’s Australian Constitution [WAC]) which have gained royal assent from an heir and successor of Queen Victoria, which is mandatory under the 1901 constitution, in order for an act to become a statute law. And “Queen of Australia” does not hack it. Therefore the Heavy Vehicle National Law 2012 (Qld) does not exist.
An exception to the above statement is the Australia Act 1986 where Queen Elizabeth visited Australia with the sole intention of signing off on that act. However since that law seeks to change the constitution without a referendum, it is ultra viries ab initio.
So the very last legitimate Governor General who could sign off on acts of parliament was Ker.
“…for nothing will save the Governor General” because Whitlam wrote the Queen (Liz) out of the WAC. That makes it high treason, but that’s a discussion for another day.

Hello Robert For many years ow, private vehicles in Victoria have been registered a commercial.In recent months, refunding of fines money has been an issue here, in Geelong, as well as in Victoria generally. A letter to the editor I wrote, on one aspect of local significance, is reproduced here: Dear Editor In regard to the council parking fines fiasco, a little examination will find that Council contracted with the owners of the Carlton Hotel, Malop St, to fine people, over the years, parking in that hotel’s rather large car park.I saw this happening, as I was a resident at the hotel on a few different occasions.Whilst I am unable to expressly confirm the fact, reports were that Council also contracted with the McDonald’s fast food outlet in Malop St to do the same thing though no blame can be placed on those businesses.Council will be able to verify the facts I have raised here, and may need to extend refunds to those people so fined, as it is also difficult to see how Council could profess to have any jurisdiction, at all, on private property.Those people so affected might like to apply to Council for their money back.The people of Geelong might also note that I have, on several occasions, had letters published in the local papers stating the fact that many of these fines were unlawful.Obviously, Council, in its eternal lust for revenue, chose to ignore those warnings, or didn’t read thepaper that day.

The other issue is that, with all private vehicles now registered commercially, it could be argued that anyone fined for parking in a Loading Zone should be entitled to get their fine money back. There is also a Constitutional issue here, as use of the highways and byways is free, and for private vehicles to be registered as commercial could infringe on that Constitutional guarantee.And for people who have had perhaps dozens of these fines, the issue of forgone opportunity-what one could have done with the money-may also be an issue, as in fine-refund-plus to cover that forgone ability to do something else with the fine money. I think that is definitely food for thought. Best regs Gaz
