Comment on Code of conduct allegations ‘vexatious, frivolous’ – councillor by Ian Sharp.

@ Steve. Your grasp of the Constitution on the point you raise is a bit dubious I think.
S 122: “The Parliament may make laws for the government of any territory surrendered by any State to and accepted by the Commonwealth, or of any territory placed by the Queen under the authority of and accepted by the Commonwealth, or otherwise acquired by the Commonwealth, and may allow the representation of such territory in either House of the Parliament to the extent and on the terms which it thinks fit.”
If I were you I wouldn’t stump up too much money on lawyers fees going to the High Court in support of your view.

@ Steve Brown: Ha! Interesting comment, bet you enjoyed reminding Jimmy of that.
However, re your comment “an idiotic undemocratic, I believe unconstitutional, electoral system …” I’m interested to learn why you think it is unconstitutional?

Don’t let this knock you off your stride, Jimmy, we need you to keep representing your values and ideas in public forums, including the Council.
I don’t always agree with you but you have made an invaluable contribution over the years.

Then up to the Megafauna Museum, wow! A real must see. Very impressed. A very productive and enjoyable morning.
