A1 statement published in Norfolk Online, 01/04/2017:
“…discussions have also taken place over the last week to identify previous claims that the Australian Constitution excused the Australian Government from their international and UN obligations, this is a stretch of the imagination and there is no applicable constitutional process that is accountable to the people supporting this bizarre concept or interpretation by some Australian Government representatives.”
WHAT ABOUT SECTION 51(XXIX) EXTERNAL AFFAIRS?
And what’s this excerpt from the Conclusion of the link below saying?
“Australia is a sovereign nation which enters into treaties in its own right and which can legislate to implement or breach treaties, if it so chooses. The external affairs power allows the Commonwealth Parliament to legislate to implement treaties on subjects traditionally within the jurisdiction of the States, vastly expanding the scope of Commonwealth legislative power.”
