Australians all have no choice For we're not one or free There's no democracy or rule of Law it's now tyrant's dumb decrees.
Our land abounds in nature's gifts That only Chinks can use In history's page 'tis the last stage of Advance Australia fair
With covid strains, do not sing....
Advance Australia fair
Beneath our radiant Southern Cross We'll mask up and obey To make this Communism of theirs entrenched and here to stay For those who've come across the seas We've insanity to spare They've locked us up, we cannot leave with suicides everywhere With covid strains you must not sing
If anyone doubts the arrogance and elitism of our criminal PM, it can be found in the major things he has done, like ignoring the constitution (the rule of law) and empowering the states with power they do not have legally, and cause the once nation of Australia to be divided up into eight little tyrannical fiefdoms, or in these more seemingly symbolic "adjustments" to our national anthem. A national anthem the people selected in a referendum. That is a song, with it's musical score and lyrics. By doing so it cannot be changed except by referendum, as is the law of our constitution. This guy is a criminal and must be removed from office, and justice served, just for this dictatorial , anti constitutional anthem move, let alone all the other crimes. Whether you agree with his decrees or not. I'll explain that a little better. It doesn't matter if it was a plebiscite or a referendum, the PM just can't change words to it legally. The GG should be maintaining the powers of government and limiting them to what the constitution allows, but he is out to lunch, another lefty hack. There is no constitutional rule the gives the PM the power to do it. There is no constitutional rule that allows the parliament to make laws regarding it. Section 51 does not mention anywhere, anything at all about the government having the power to change the words to our national anthem, Or the words to Three Blind Mice, or the words to any song. They can't and shouldn't be concerning themselves with that stuff. It is not theirs to make laws about lyrics in any songs and it is not their place to decide our national song or the lyrics in it. They do not have those powers.
Here's how it should work in our representative parliamentary democracy.
.....Hey, government, (we initiate it) ,we the people, want to change some words to our national anthem, and have the new version made official. Government of "representatives" (remember them) then says, Well, tell us what you want to change it to, and we'll organise a vote for you, because whatever you decide, we have no powers to make laws about it, or change it, it would be unconstitutional for us to do it, because the constitution does not give us the power to make laws regarding these things, ....it's quite specific you know! ..........the people than decide and the government records our democratic decision. Instead, in these lawless times, of criminal tyrants where the PM has just decided to change it, we find some cock heads on other blogs claim that because the anthem wasn't enshrined into the constitution he can do it,...... well neither was the power given to him to tamper with it. The government in this case, are just there to record what we decide on this issue...they have no other powers in this particular area, and taking them, unconstitutionally is criminal behaviour. It may sound over the top, but it is quite a logical conclusion, and in fact the only one you can come to. They are criminals.
