Western Australian Independent Senator Rodney Culleton has written to Governor-General Peter Cosgrove over concerns on recent High Court amendments.
On September 12, in his First Question to the Senate, Senator Culleton quizzed Attorney-General George Brandis on the validity of High Court when documents had not been written in the name of the Queen for the past 12 years.
The High Court was forced to make the amendments and for the first time since 2004 all writs must now include the following words:
ELIZABETH THE SECOND, by the Grace of God Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth.
But Senator Culleton believes further amendments need to be made as the High Court rules are still non-conforming with the provisions in the Judiciary Act 1903 (Cth) and Crimes Act (Cth).
“The Constitution is the people’s document and does not deserve to be made inoperative by insubordination of the highest order,” Senator Culleton said.
“While the Queen’s name is now on process, our country’s revenue is still being denied to the full benefit of the work of the Parliament.”
Senator Culleton believes if further change is made, it will have all profits remain in Australia which will boost this county’s standard of living, fund infrastructure like schools and hospitals and also financially hydrate the budget.
“People should be getting what belongs to them, every dollar that goes overseas should really be going into revenue for the Australian people,” he said.
“The Government is the custodian and is clearly not looking after the Australian people’s profits that are driven from the Australian’s peoples assets (our country) as it continues to defy the Constitution.
“Australia must not become a republic and the major reasons why I believe the two major parties want to throw us into a republic is I believe so the Australian people don’t have a counter claim for the Government’s errors and misconduct.”
“Australians need to ask our two major parties to stand aside”
