In the last issue of Legal Eagle I argued that it was not in the interests of the Australian people to have a constitutionally enshrined Bill of Rights. My argument was based on the proposition that our rights were perfectly well protected by the ancient common law, which has proven itself infinitely suitable to the needs of a free and democratic society, as it has been adapted by courts throughout the centuries, up until the present day.
