As an external territory of Australia, Norfolk Island enjoyed a large measure of self-government over the years 1979-2015.The Australian Government has now torn down this structure against the wishes of the great majority of Norfolk Islanders,replacing it with governmental arrangements based on a New South Wales regional council model - in what internationally regarded human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson QC has called ‘a heavy-handed act of regression’.


This book brings together articles and letters originally published in The Norfolk Islander and on Norfolk Online News,and provides a record of and commentary on, this transition.The picture that emerges is of Australian Government actions typified by arrogance, ignorance, and a lack of concern for the real interests of the Norfolk Island community.
