Why ??
I was a self-represented 
PARTY in litigation against ANDREW BOLT which ran for 4 long years.

Greens double-down on Integrity
Filed Under:

Scott Ludlam and Larissa Waters sign consent to High Court judgment entered against them and pay $200 Penalty to be donated to The Fred Hollows Foundation to 'end avoidable blindness'

In July 2017, Greens Politicians Scott Ludlam (STATEMENT) then Larissa Waters (STATEMENT) resigned from the Senate when they became aware of holding dual citizenship which disqualified them from sitting in the Australian Parliament.

Although they had resigned, the Senate President referred questions as to their disqualification to the High Court of Australia.

On 28 September 2017, their Counsel filed written JOINT-SUBMISSIONS to the High Court as to why it was proper that Ludlam and Waters were disqualified and so too should 5 other Federal Politicians.

On 10 October 2017, three-days of hearings began in the High Court to determine the referral questions, with 24 Counsel appearing (along with instructing solicitors) before 7 Justices (each with an associate).  Quite an aviary.

Lawyers for Scott Ludlam and Larissa Waters also signed the following consent orders for judgment against them in my related High Court proceeding.

Apologies to Scott Ludlam and Larissa Waters, but it's a thing.  If not me then some other Bounty Hunter.

On 27 September 2017, I sued 7 Fed Politicians myself under the Common Informers (Parliamentary Disqualifications) Act 1975 (Cth).

This provides a bounty for citizens ‘hunting down’ any Parliamentarian who has sat when disqualified.

$200 is paid for proving the Parliamentarian is caught out during the 12 months before being served with a lawsuit; and $200 is paid for every subsequent day on which he or she sat.

Any penalties I receive and personal tax benefit, I will donate to The Fred Hollows Foundation to end avoidable blindness

“We see a world in which no person is needlessly blind and Indigenous Australians exercise their right to good health.”

You can see the penalties for each sitting day stacking up in this Graph (although caped at $200 for each Green as they have resigned from the Senate):

The $200 penalty rate was set in 1975. Adjusting for inflation, that’s $1,400 in 2017 Aussie dollars. A disqualified politician could voluntarily make up the difference with a personal donation of $1,200 per day:
