“It is your legal duty and obligation, and yours alone, to keep your Members and Senators fully informed, at all times, of your ‘WILL’. That is your true lawful relationship with your Members and your Senators.” Arthur Chresby, Your Will Be Done
This free ebook contains crucial information for all Australians at a time when things are looking more desperate than ever. We need to start taking control of the political machinery and this book explains the simple technique for doing so.
A Parliamentarian, armed with the written proof of the ‘WILL” of his electors, upon any issue, can completely ignore party pressures and set about faithfully fulfilling his judicially defined legal function and legal duty. He is free to be a Parliamentarian and not, as at present in most cases, a mere party yes man. THE “MY WILL” LETTER IS A LEGAL DEMONSTRATION OF THE PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY IN ACTION.
When your Members of Parliament, State and Federal, do something that pleases you WRITE AND TELL THEM SO, as Members get plenty of abusive letters and extremely few courteous ones. If a Member or Senator knows that he is the centre of watchfulness from his area at all times he is left with no alternative than to carry out his judicially defined function and duty, no matter the protests and pressures of his party.
Your Will Be Done – Introduction
In the great controversy on the alleged need for constitutional reform and the replacement of the monarchy with an Australian republic, there seems to be an increasing airing of the views of those apparently bent on destroying the faith of the people in their established parliamentary institutions; that the real truths, safeguards and functions of our Commonwealth and State Constitutions are being lost to the knowledge of the nation.
This work is an attempt to put forward those truths, a sort of primer of Constitutional Law; to bring to public notice the true legal functions and duties of the institution of the Monarchy, the offices of Governor-General and State Governors, Ministers of the Crown, Federal and State Parliamentarians; to reveal the correct legal relationship between the electors and parliamentarians; to show what can be done under both Commonwealth and State Constitutions to bring Ministers and politicians to a full sudden stop “…for reprimand or dismissal, without having to wait for a general election…”
It may be contended that the people have been denied the above-mentioned knowledge; that our schools, colleges and universities have failed to inform, as have the new media at large.
The history of parliament and politics in Australia shows that no political party, few, If any, politicians, and almost none of the constitutional and political text book writers has published this information, for it is knowledge that, once grasped by the people, means the end of party political control over the voice and votes of politicians, and the elimination of party political dictatorship over the machinery of parliament. Those who would seriously attempt to dispute the contents of this book are advised that the law courts are open to them to do so. Any other form of denial would have no legal validity.
Because this is being written for the information of Mr., Mrs. and Miss Everyman, the writer has tried to keep the contents as simple as possible, to avoid legal jargon, and to give quotations only where it is deemed essential to clarify a legal point.
It is stressed that the sole purpose of this work is to show the Australian People what their true Constitutional powers are, and how they can lawfully use those powers to obtain the results they want their elected parliamentarians to produce, e.g., “I want my dollar to buy more tomorrow than it does today!” Readers are invited to keep the following legally unarguable fact in mind:
In the final analysis it is the Constitutions and Laws of the Commonwealth and the States, and the High Court interpretations of such, that determines what we can or cannot do in our daily lives. It is, therefore, to those Constitutions, Laws, and Court interpretations that we must continuously look for guidance and succour in our living, work and play, and not to the dissembling party politicians.
The writer hopes that the following pages will open up the way to such constitutional and legal guidance and succour.
This Introduction cannot be completed without acknowledging the debt, which this writer owes to Bart Marney of the blue ribbon provincial daily newspaper, “The Toowoomba Chronicle” (Queensland), without whose many objective criticisms and encouragement this book might never have been written.
