Apologies for a delayed response, but could it be, that some of the Fundrazr funds, have been channeled to a certain Brexit supporting UK pollie under the guise of the more official sounding than what it is Council of Elders? Perhaps a look into Pauline Hansons official donation register will show that she was also paid for her "fact finding mission".

Norfolk Island

The petition of residents of the UK,

Declares that on behalf of residents of Norfolk Island, there is an identified historical, cultural, legal and constitutional relationship which Norfolk Island and the Norfolk Island people have celebrated since 1856 with the United Kingdom and the British people.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges Her Majesty’s Government to support the people of Norfolk Island to be able to uphold their right of self-determination in accordance with the United Nation’s Charter specific to decolonisation and humbly request the same right of self-determination as afforded to the people of the British Overseas territories.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented byAndrew Rosindell, Official Report, 23 November 2016; Vol. 617, c. 1001.]


Observations from the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (Alok Sharma):

Norfolk Island has been a Territory of the Commonwealth of Australia since 1914and its governance is a matter for that country.
