Today is decimal currency anniversary, 56 years ago when the dollar began

How did the federal government of Liberal PM Harold Holt in 1966 change over our currency to dollars without referendum because the currency in our Commonwealth Constitution Act 1901 remains in pounds.

We will be publishing more on this anomaly soon.

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Entertainment indeed. There is much more. Ed


  2. Ed: “No we have better than salacious gossip.Ed”
    Put up, Ed! 🙂 I’m all ears.

    Ed: “Executive Council all appointed by the PM… ”
    Exactly, GG effectively abrogates responsibility to the Commonwealth (read People) of Australia.

    They claim it’s by convention, I say more by subversion.


  3. The “Chinese” came up in Aussie papers after Holts disappearance.
    “VANISHED former prime minister Harold Holt could have been kidnapped by a Chinese submarine that was yellow but one thing we do know is that Marjorie Gillespie, his lover who was with him on a beach near Portsea, has died.”
    Entertainment, it is called!

    “Later Liberal Prime Ministers turned their sycophancy towards the United States. John Gorton said in 1969 “We will go a-waltzing Matilda with you,” and Harold Holt coined the phrase “All the way with LBJ” when sending Australian troops to the Vietnam War. Again, the Liberal government was so desperate to please the Americans that they did all they could to engineer from the South Vietnamese government an invitation to send Australian troops. When the South Vietnamese government was not forthcoming, the Liberal government sent troops and advisers anyway, and mislead Parliament in a similar way that Lyndon Johnson misled Congress with the Gulf of Tonkin incident.” from the new dawn article
    The “liberals” seem to have a lot of Australian blood on their hands and a that being a long time before Scotty reigned.


  4. What about the statement by Baron R that there will be no nuclear anything in Australia.


  5. Executive Council all appointed by the PM and Cabinet the GG has no say he is just a figurehead with no authority,
    just like the ‘federal government..’ Ed


  6. No we have better than salacious gossip.Ed


  7. Can’t see anything about the Chinese in New Dawn and in any case they were not involved. Ed


  8. Yepp, “the Chinese drowned/suicided Holt”, that’s what the Aussie press wrote. A “yellow” submarine did it! Not to mention Mr President Johnson, the CIA and disagreements about the Vietnam war. The Chinese did it!!!!!!!!! Nice read in the link below.


  9. I wish we would go back to the original currency. It came in just before I was born but the sooner that returns and our proper constitutional monarchy the better. Get rid of the Australia Act frauds and all their acts of treason with this Covid garbage. I think they are getting close to their final act which won’t be pretty.


  10. Reality Check: “Keep being wrong, I learn so much.”

    Have you worked out yet that the Gov General chooses the Executive Council at his pleasure but that appointed ministers automatically also become members?

    Still insist that Cabinet is the Executive Council?

    Keep being wrong, you’ll learn so much more.

    “There shall be a Federal Executive Council to advise the Governor-General in the government of the Commonwealth.”


  11. Last I heard Harold eloped with his toy boy to the Bahamas. The rest is all salacious gossip.


  12. It does not allow the parliament to change a currency. You should not take a cursory reading of an act as gospel. Ask Harold Holt, he had to leave the country over it. Ed


  13. Section 51 of the Constitution gives power of the parliament to make laws such as:

    (xii) currency, coinage, and legal tender;

    Legislation is passed to make it legal through different acts such as the Currency Act 1965.

    Keep being wrong, I learn so much.


  14. Well we have some interesting discoveries on both subjects which will come in due course.Ed

  15. It will be interesting when you show more about this subject. But considering we are dealing with politicians, we can expect to find out about their dirty deeds. It seems contrary to what I was brought up to believe, they are a pack of kaniving wheeler dealers. So much for the respect I once had for them.

    The thing I would like to know is where did Harold disappear to ? Now that would make interesting reading.


  16. As one who was forced to calculate pounds, shillings and pence for 33 years, I miss it not one jot. It should have been abandoned two centuries earlier.
