Comment on Fracking probe head rejects suggestion advisors may be compromised by Charlie Carter.

“Justice Pepper says she was a member of the tender assessment panel: Assessment was made using criteria of price, local content, capacity, timeliness, scope specific as well as past performance, all of which were outlined in the public tender document that was released.”

And without casting any aspersions at all, who is Justice Pepper, and what qualifications does she bring to the enquiry?

“From this first story we move to ‘At Failure Creek’, to the perspective of a “land explorer”, recognisable as Captain Charles Sturt: a man in a “weakened and near blind state”, perhaps close to death himself …

… to the dream of the dying man – of a glorious imagined parade down Rundle Mall”

This is blatantly, obviously, StuArt, not Sturt.

Alex, from my very limited understanding of constitutional law, any legislation that attempted to vary the meaning or application of the Constitution would be unconstitutional.
