Colin Rouge , Its good to see some real comment based on real abuse by a system and individuals , I was asked today "why arent judges doing whats right ?" I see this as simple we currently have the weakest high court and judiciary since inception , the likes of Owen Dixon whilst often quoted are in fact mis quoted , Whilst Sir Dixon made simple and forthright description his true legacey Ill stood in courts and time after time heard his definitions mis quoted , Now that in its self is a problem , the entire practice of relying on anothers findings or work is somewhat Narcisistic as its a method of gaining credit from someone elses work and not your own skills , the simple truth is the current herd of swine with their collective snouts in the trough of the public purse are better at covering their butts and making findings to them in their view , whilst totally disregarding the evidence act , in summary they take a slant choose what is relavant in their eyes and misquote learned Folk the like of leo Cussins Owen Dixon and Anthony Graham with little insight into the way these men practically and faithfully discharged their knowledge and duties , Its a wonder with political favour will a truely learned and just judge ever be found again , one who carries the dignity of the system and its combatants equally and stands the test of public opinion not just legeslation of the contrived effect of the government of the day .
