THE STORY OF THE AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE’S BANK

In October of year 2017, the centenary of the completion of this wide brown land’s East-West railway will be celebrated.  There is quite a story to be told in relation to the East-West railway - stretching from the east coast to the west coast of Australia – and how it was built without debt to the people.
In the Preface to the ninth edition of “The Story of the Commonwealth Bank” July 1940 D. J. Amos, F.A.I.S. took us back into the historical background all Australians need to know.
 
Preface to the Ninth Edition
"The Story of the Commonwealth Bank" was originally delivered as a lecture before the Sturt Electoral Committee, Adelaide, and was first printed in pamphlet form in 1931. It exhibited the usual defect of all lectures, namely, condensation of the subject matter to an extreme degree.
The great and unexpected demand which arose for the pamphlet found me so closely occupied in other work that the second and third editions had to be printed practically unaltered, and I began to be more and more sensible of the need for amplifications and additions. These were accordingly made in the fourth (revised) edition, after which only minor additions, for the sake of clearness, were inserted in subsequent editions until the eighth was called for. It was then found necessary to continue the story up to Australia's entry into the second world war (1939), and also to include in it a short account of the note issue.  In the present (ninth) edition it has been deemed advisable to mention very briefly some important paragraphs in the Report of the Royal Commission on the Australian Monetary and Banking System (appointed in 1935), as this most important report is now either out of print or has been withdrawn from circulation.
It only remains for me to thank the general public for the cordial reception they gave to all "The Commonwealth Stories," and which encouraged me to persevere and complete the series.
ADELAIDE, July, 1940.
D. J. AMOS, F.A.I.S.

More on this matter will be brought to the light as we approach the centenary in October.

Hanson tackles Section 18c Racial Discrimination Act in the senate - Hansard November 24, 2016

Pauline Hanson addresses the racial Discrimination Act

Senator HANSON (Queensland) (10:48): I have listened to some comments in this chamber today and all I hear about is racism. Let me make my point very clear. When I first came into parliament I stood on the ground of equality for all Australians—equality regardless of race, colour or creed. Also, what I have tried to make quite clear is that, yes, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people were the first peoples of this land here. Yes, Australia was colonised and people came here. Since then, many migrants from around the world have sought to make Australia their home. They have come here to join us and to be one of us, and I welcome that. My first husband was actually Polish. He was a migrant after the Second World War who came to Australia for a new life with his mother.

I have had involvement with people of all different cultural backgrounds. The manager of my shop—my fish and chip shop—was also a refugee from Laos. I had the highest regard for her and we worked very well together. I had properties that I actually rented out to an Aboriginal lady and her child. My children grew up in the same street with Aboriginal children. My association will all different cultures has been one that I have cherished. My parents were people that welcomed anyone into their homes, and that is how I was taught. I have respect for so many different cultures and the people. Respect is earned by the person, not purely based on who they are or their race. It must be earned.

LET’S NOT MAKE IT EASIER FOR THE POLITICIANS by Betty Luks

I see that barrister Louise Clegg in her address to the Institute of Public Affairs has suggested that what is needed for ruling parties to ease the gridlock of an uncontrolled Senate, is to have longer parliamentary terms and joint sittings of both Houses to ‘ease the passage of Bills through the Parliaments’.  Her paper appeared on David Pascoe’s Facebook page.

She thought that “If the two major parties had the slightest inclination to put the national interest above their own, they would embark on bipartisan efforts for sensible constitutional change, such as lengthening parliamentary terms and the mooted constitutional amendment to enable joint sittings to address parliamentary gridlock.  These would provide much-needed structural circuit breakers and help governments to govern…”

The Queen. 65 Years on the Throne!

Today, the 6th February 2017, marks the 65th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the Throne.

For Her Majesty this is also the anniversary of her father’s passing and she has indicated she will spend the day in quiet contemplation.
 
Yet, it appears that there will be no formal acknowledgement by Australian Federal and State governments nor, more importantly, does it seem that there will be any church services commemorating the first time in our shared history that a monarch has served her people for so long.
 
Called the “Blue-Sapphire Jubilee” it is unlikely that we will see another such anniversary for at least a hundred years and probably far longer.
 
The Australian Monarchist League has written on this matter to the Prime Minister and other dignitaries but without response.

No political movement can exist in a moral vacuum, and Australians have traditionally accepted that it is the Christian Faith that generated our heritage of representative government. While the League maintains a small full-time staff primarily motivated by Christian service, it is the extensive network of volunteers from all walks of life who form the backbone of the Movement.

The League of Rights seeks to help create a body of dedicated men and women who serve not for their own material gain, but as custodians of those truths and values which must form the basis of all successful efforts to defeat the enemies of human dignity and freedom.

The League encourages and equips individuals to independently exercise their own initiative in the service of freedom.
