Don’t Leave Us with the Bill: The Case Against an Australian Bill of Rights
This book provides a comprehensive case against an Australian bill of rights from the perspective of a range of different Australians.
“Fervent advocates of a bill of rights for Australia often justify their case by reference to Australia’s international obligations. I have always found this argument quite humiliating. It suggests that, left to our own devices, the natural instinct for freedom that exists in Australia would not assert itself and that somehow we need the discipline of adherence to international treaties and conventions to stay on the democratic straight and narrow.” – Former Prime Minister, John Howard
