In 2011, he was an inept dill: Gillard resolute on her criticism of Chief Justice Robert French.
Prime Minister, are you worried the wording leaves the door open for high court challenges or are you confident it’s as watertight as you say it is?”
I’m absolutely confident. But I’m confident on the basis of people like the former head of the high court, Justice French. He might know something about the constitution.”
Ah the Malaysian Solution. ROFL!
I find it strange how often incurious lefty ideologues like Gillard and Albanese can get professional ‘experts’ like Twomey and Justice French to prostitute themselves to the cause. Perhaps it is because they observe how the left casts out those who don’t toe the line.
The problem with the voice is clearly more obvious than this erstwhile elephant in the room. It is that the voice will hand a blank cheque to the government to change the constitution. Squabbling over whether or not disagreements will go to the high court is secondary, it hands the government of the day the ability to write whatever it likes with a simple majority in both houses. That is unprecendented.

Making reference to the poor bastard in WA fronting the court for building a bridge over a creek on his own land – because it might frighten the madeitallupyesterday spirit.
Not a single love media outlet running the Taibbi story, just letting everyone know you will get the Gillian Sneddon treatment if you go off the reservation. Interesting how well the alp have scrubbed the internet of Sneddon’s treatment too.
