Let me begin by putting my cards on the table - I do not think Australia needs a Bill of Rights. What’s more, I think it would be a bad thing for Australia to have a Bill of Rights. In this article I argue why a Bill of Rights is not necessarily a good thing and in an article to appear in the next edition of Legal Eagle, I argue that if we need anything at all, a Bill of Responsibilities is much more appropriate.
"A Bill of Rights for Australia?- Part 1,"
The National Legal Eagle:
2, Article 3.
