Andrews Melbourne Covid Cops caught on their own bodycam video displaying disgusting harassment bullying as you view this government endorsed violation of human rights as these enforcers surround this grandmother like a pack of ravaging wolves.
Just when will Australians wake up? How much more of this dictatorship third world people control will it take for you to vote out these self appointed masters. They rely on your polling day support maintaining their unaccountability continuance of misconduct totally unacceptable in any real democracy.
Thanks to Rebel News for the great work they are doing
Barrister calls out Andrews: The lockdown is a bluff and illegal
The barrister then pointed to page 106 of The Public Health and Wellbeing Act Division 1 Section 111 which states the spread of an infectious disease should be prevented or minimised with “the minimum restrictions on the rights of any person”.
“The clause doesn’t say ‘the restrictions on the rights of any person will be minimum to contain the spread of an infectious disease’. If the clause’s construction read this way, it would attempt to give the chief health officer arbitrary power to decide what’s minimum to get his job done as he sees fit, and with no consideration or reference to what the person, whose rights being restricted, thinks. This is not how the law works or what the clause says.
“The legal drafting and clause construction is very clear. It says the chief health officer can do his job to stop the spread of an infectious disease, but a person’s rights restrictions must be minimal. He has a qualifier and restraint. He doesn’t decide what’s minimum. So who does decide what’s minimum?
“If a person, whose rights are being restricted, has no say in the matter, there would have been no need to include the clause in the legislation. The Parliament sought to preserve and protect civil liberties. It’s a check on unfettered powers. That is the purpose of the clause, otherwise, why have it in the legislation if the chief health officer has unrestrained powers? It’s a reminder and constraint on the chief health officer.”
The barrister’s message notes that the Westminster system constrains, separates, checks and contains power, through a mechanism known as the Separation of Powers, which means that the legislature (that makes laws), the Executive (Premier and Ministry) who execute law, and the Judiciary who interpret laws, remain separate. “This is a check on power so it’s not concentrated as we seem to have in Victoria at the present.”
“The default ‘Mentis’ (mind) of Parliament, in a liberal democracy, is to preserve freedoms, particularly the freedom of movement and association which the High Court has protected over and over and now Daniel Andrews thinks he can extinguish.
“The person who decides what’s a minimum restraint on a person’s rights is the person who has the rights. If that person has no say on what’s a restraint, the person would be deemed to have no rights, so why mention them? In this event, the person at best, has privileges which can be limited or extinguished. Like a driving licence.
“True rights can only be suspended or limited by the right’s holder. These are known as inalienable rights – God-given which cannot be extinguished by the state, the chief health officer or Daniel Andrews.
“Division 1 Section 111 was drafted in acknowledgement of this liberal democratic principle. The Section is even referred to as the Principle of the Act, against which all Directions Orders must be measured. Case closed,” the barrister notes.
“What I have just set out is a legal argument by a barrister might make before a magistrate, who is usually ill equipped to handle such arguments. Now you understand why the last thing Daniel Andrews wants is fines to be challenged in court. Push the problem into the future. Maybe, even forgive fines so they never see a courtroom. The podium have zero standing and will never stand up in court when the BS fines are challenged. They’re all a big bluff. The lockdown is a bluff.
“It’s no wonder the Magistrates Court has adjourned all Covid challenged fines well into 2021.
If one illegal fine gets before a court, Andrews will buckle like he did with the Curfew when it was uncovered as a fraud. The Directions Order will be found to be as illegal as the Curfew. The day before the Curfew was challenged in the Supreme Court, it was quickly ended by Andrews.”
The barrister says the 5km restraint is equally illegal as an excessive restraint on the rights of Victorians. “I remind you. If Victorians have no rights, as Andrews asserts, then why mention them in the Act?
“While Andrews can’t be removed as Premier, he is subject to the Westminster system Separation of Powers, which means the Parliament or courts can clip his wings and stop his tyranny. As he has the numbers and Parliament and it’s not sitting, it’s useless to try a no confidence motion against Andrews, so we’re left with the judiciary and the courts. Spread this across social media.”
“Being awake and informed will set you free,” says the barrister. “With the legal illusion of fines swept away, so is lockdown. We decide when the lockdown ends, not Daniel Andrews. The police will run out of ink in their pens writing fines if we don’t cooperate.
“It was for this reason Daniel Andrews wanted detention powers in his Omnibus Bill. He feared someone would write a post like this and wake up Victoria. Repost this as far and wide as you can.
“Victorians don’t know or understand the law and Andrews feels omnipotent whilst Victorians are oblivious and kept in the dark. The average police member in the street is even less well equipped to handle these matter, so don’t try to enlighten them or argue whilst being issued with an illegal and worthless fine.
“They have no idea. They’re just following orders. In any event, fines are only allegations and not findings of fact or guilt. Fines become an admission of guilt when you pay them.”
At least eight countries have temporarily banned the import of Victorian poultry products as the state’s outbreak of bird flu continues.
A strain of the virus was first detected at a free-range egg farm in Lethbridge, north-west of Geelong, in late July.
Infected birds, which included emus, turkeys and chickens, have since been found in six poultry farms across Victoria.
Agriculture Victoria said three different strains of differing severity have been detected, which meant that the outbreaks were not all connected.
To date, about 400,000 farmed birds have been euthanized to contain the spread of the virus.
That includes 2,000 emu chicks at a farm in Kerang.
The Victorian Farmers Federation Egg Group president Brian Ahmed told ABC Statewide Drive that the loss of flock would be devastating for both large and small producers.
“Not just emotionally but financially as well,” he said.
The department confirms Australian poultry trade with at least eight countries is impacted by the outbreak.
It would not name those countries, except for the Solomon Islands.
“The department is working closely with the Solomon Islands and other countries to restore trade,” the statement said.
“The department has now received agreement that the Solomon Islands’ ban only applies to poultry products sourced from within Victoria; a similar outcome has been achieved for seven other countries.”

Major company Luv-A-Duck told the ABC its trade with China was impacted.
The Western Victorian duck producer and processor sells duck feathers to the major Asian market.
“The impact on us is restriction [in] the sale of our duck feathers into China, which is a primary market,” said chief executive James Thompson.
“At this point in time we can still export into the UK.”
Mr Thompson said he was confident that the company was keeping the virus off its farms and processing facilities.
“All our staff adhere to best practice biosecurity standards, so as long as we maintain that we should be okay,” he said.
In a statement, the Federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud said he was “sympathetic” to farmers and companies impacted by the loss of trade.
“The Government is working to reinstate trade in poultry products to overseas markets,” he said.
“I am very sympathetic to everyone affected by this outbreak and understand the impact of the difficult decisions that need to be made.
“The Government is cost-sharing the response, along with all state and territory governments and affected industry bodies.
“This includes a mechanism for reimbursement of certain costs to eligible producers impacted by the response.”
Biosecurity zones have been set up around the site of the main outbreaks in the Golden Plains Shire in central Victoria.
The biggest company hit is ASX-listed company, Farm Pride.
It, so far, had to euthanise 380,000 animals.
Farm Pride told shareholders this week that it was forecasting losses of $18–$23 million for the 2020–21 financial year.
This week its share price dipped to 0.170, which was almost its lowest point since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak in March.

VICTORIA’S political crisis will deepen, despite Premier aka comrade Dan Andrews’ attempts to exploit a so-called second wave in COVID19 infections, to deflect attention from it and buy time.
In addition to the scandal involving the foul, crooked Labor branch stacker and former Local Government Minister Adam Somyurek and two other ministerial resignations, the state has been caught in two massive fraud allegations involving the Dandenong City Council and the Department of Health and Human Services and the brazenly illegal “withdrawal” of taxi business licences in 2017.
Dandenong council, in the bullying manner typical of the bureaucratic, corporate monstrosities called “local government”, is accused of fraudulently shutting down a catering business named I Cook Foods 18 months ago.
The privately-owned family business just happened to be serious competition for another catering company, Community Catering, in which Dandenong council and others have financial stakes. This company was in financial difficulty and is being bought by the State Government.
Meanwhile taxi operators who were shafted by this same out-of-control China client state called Victoria, are now battling in the courts in order to get some justice after Andrews and company simply cancelled 5000 “pepetual licences” at midnight on October 9, 2017. So-called “transitional payments” of totally inadequate amounts, were offered with the new legislation.
The move smoothed the path for the entry of Silicon Valley tech giant Uber to the Australian market and no doubt paid off handsomely to Victorian Labor Party coffers.
One former taxi operator told Cairns News the government simply removed the word “perpetual” from the redrafted legislation and then let Uber into a now largely unregulated market.
“They reduced the price of the plates to zero. My business, superannuation, income and inheritance for my children is all gone.
“Licences used to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per set of plates. That’s where the wealth was in the industry. But now people have a debt on something that no longer exists.”
Dandenong Council and Red Dan hand-in-hand for dollars
Comrade Dan’s crooked corporate state also works hand in hand with the council corporations.
I Cook Foods supplies packaged food for nursing homes, Meals on Wheels and hospitals, but was temporarily shut down by Dandenong council and the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). They used the death of an elderly woman initially attributed to listeria and linked it to I Cook Foods.
Ian Cook’s factory was later cleared of having contamination and documents revealed council officers knew within days of the closure that the listeria levels at the business were safe.
However, the council raised other “food safety” concerns, including a slug being found in the kitchen, and laid 96 food safety charges against Mr Cook and his company.
The closure resulted in 41 people losing their jobs and basically destroyed a $25 million business. It is still managing to survive on limited business.
A council health inspector is now accused of planting the slug on the property after video footage was reviewed.
Luckily for Ian Cook, his matter has now been widely publicized and was the subject of a parliamentary hearing this month (June).
Ian has also been given access to a commercial law process by a group of Geelong activists, which has enabled him to sidestep the courts and expensive legal obstruction by council solicitors.
He has also gained the voluntary help of two retired Victorian cops who have been supplied with extensive evidence of the misconduct.
It is hoped prosecutions may be undertaken in the near future.
