High Court decision

Wednesday, 09 May 2018 17:38
The High Court’s decision in the case of Katy Gallagher has changed the way the law is understood and interpreted in relation to eligibility under s.44 of the Constitution. Until today’s decision the ‘reasonable steps’ test had been accepted for more than 25 years.

WA shipbuilders are still waiting for Malcolm Turnbull to deliver on the $100 million infrastructure commitment for Henderson that he made over 14 months ago.

In announcing a further increase in fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC), NBN Co has once again given WA an extraordinary bad deal, with the state due to see only 3000-4000 additional premises receive the superior technology (or less than 1 per cent) of the additional 440,000 FTTC connections announced this week.

The revelations on 60 Minutes last night are the latest in a long saga that shows the live export industry is fundamentally rotten. It is a bitter irony that the ship involved is actually in Fremantle at the moment, and that Emmanuel Exporters has not faced a single penalty for a sequence of failures that caused thousands of sheep to be cooked alive and die in their own ordure.

This week the Turnbull Government has quietly performed the largest act of marine vandalism in Australia’s history. Minister Frydenberg has ignored both the science and the overwhelming public input on this issue to tear great holes in the fabric of Labor’s national marine protection network.
