Change Is Happening – The Ordinary Folk Have Had Enough & the
Fight Back Has Begun:
Australian Action Takes The Lead to Draw Down Illegal Actions by Local Governments in seizure
Hi Folks: We need to rally critical mass support to kick the illegal “LOCAL GOVERNMENT” right where it
hurts – REVENUE!
The attached no-pay letter has legal basis because the presumed local government powers of Gold Coast
City Council are being challenged in the District Court of Queensland.
I would suggest 1000“no pay” notices/letters per municipality would be the bare minimum to make them take
It’s easy for councils to threaten a few dozen ratepayers – they do it all the time. But with hundreds it’s a
different ball game.
A challenge to local government powers in Victoria has been initiated by Peter Olney and on the Gold
Coast via mayoral candidate John Abbott who is assisting in Bruce Jefree v Gold Coast City Council. The
latter case is in a higher court and may put the Melbourne one on hold.
Also Rumbel vs Liverpool Plains Shire Councilis advanced to the stage where compensation payments for
Mr Rumbel are expected to be ordered in the District Court of NSW (Common Law Division) in mid-August.
Following that, criminal charges against all those involved in the trespass against Mr Rumbel are expected
to proceed. The shire cut the locks to Mr Rumbel’s car repair yard and seized more than 50 vehicles. Such
action has been typical of bossy, dictatorial local councils as exemplified in the TV series “The Enforcers”.
Even more important, the case has shown the Local Government Act of NSW has no constitutional basis as
with similar Acts in all other states!
The Gold Coast action (see below) is in the District Court of Queensland and seeks to have councils
downgraded from their unlawful, unconstitutional “local government”status to the lawful status of “body
corporate” that provides specific services for a fee, not illegal property taxation as at present to enrich the
ballooning, autocratic, regional corporations that “local councils” have become.
Class Action support. The CA"interest" list continues to grow thanks to efforts by all to spread the news. I
want to see it grow to 2000 to get good traction in Victoria. Now, there is a development in the District Court
in Queensland with similar legal issues and we need to watch this carefully as it has immediate ramifications
since statute is being challanged by Mr Jefree in the so-called“local government” area of his life.
Queensland District Court. Appellant Bruce Jefree’s argument includes the following:
- Rates are a tax because they are based on the value of a property and taxation is an exclusive
- Councils have no constitutional standing and therefore can only operate as body corporates that charge
a fee for service;
- The Queensland Local Government Act 1993, 2009, 2010, is invalid because the Queensland Parliament
altered the State Constitution without a referendum. Ie., the State Government (and other states) gave
themselves power to create“local government” but had no Constitutional authority to do so (there should
have been a referendum);
- The Queensland Local Government Act 1993, 2009, 2010, is invalid because it has no Royal Assent and
Letters Patent. Notwithstanding …
Despite the Federal Govt “abandoning” land tax in 1954, that body still has that power exclusively, and, it
CANNOT be given back to State/s as no federal power exists to do so. Further, councils are body
corporates and NO body corporate can charge money to raise revenue! What is required of councils is a
fair price for each service provided.
“Rates Notices”.Councils will be sending so-called “Rate Notices” to property owners, with a demand for
payment. Consider the letter attached and send it within 14 days of the ‘Rate Notice’ arriving. If council
send it back to you then return it again with a similar letter - again within 14 days. And, finally, if the Rate
Notice surfaces a third time, then send it back once again rejecting it as any form of agreement with you.
Each time refer to the court case in Queensland, and your non-consent to imposed rates.
In the Uniform Tax case 1942 (65CLR 373, at 408) 23 July 1942, CJ Latham said(Quote) “A pretended law
made in excess of power is NOT and never has been a law at all.
If it is beyond power it is invalid ab initio” – Ie., Has NO power from the beginning.

Barclays Bank PLC Admits Misconduct Related to Submissions for the London Interbank Offered Rate and
the Euro Interbank Offered Rate and Agrees to Pay $160 Million Penalty
WASHINGTON – Barclays Bank PLC, a financial institution headquartered in London, has entered into an
agreement with the Department of Justice to pay a $160 million penalty to resolve violations arising from
Barclays’s submissions for the London InterBank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and the Euro Interbank Offered
Rate (EURIBOR), which are benchmark interest rates used in financial markets around the world,
announced Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and
Assistant Director in Charge James W. McJunkin of the FBI’s Washington Field Office.
As part of the agreement with the Department of Justice, Barclays has admitted and accepted responsibility
for its misconduct set forth in a statement of facts that is incorporated into the agreement. According to the
agreement, Barclays provided LIBOR and EURIBOR submissions that, at various times, were false because
they improperly took into account the trading positions of its derivative traders, or reputational concerns
about negative media attention relating to its LIBOR submissions. The Justice Department’s criminal
investigation into the manipulation of LIBOR and EURIBOR by other financial institutions and individuals is
ongoing. The agreement requires Barclays to continue cooperating with the department in its ongoing
“LIBOR and EURIBOR are critically important benchmark interest rates,” said Assistant Attorney General
Breuer. “Because mortgages, student loans, financial derivatives, and other financial products rely on
LIBOR and EURIBOR as reference rates, the manipulation of submissions used to calculate those rates can
have significant negative effects on consumers and financial markets worldwide. For years, traders at
Barclays encouraged the manipulation of LIBOR and EURIBOR submissions in order to benefit their
financial positions; and, in the midst of the financial crisis, Barclays management directed that U.S. Dollar
LIBOR submissions be artificially lowered. For this illegal conduct, Barclays is paying a significant price. To
the bank’s credit, Barclays also took a significant step toward accepting responsibility for its conduct by
being the first institution to provide extensive and meaningful cooperation to the government. Its efforts
have substantially assisted the Criminal Division in our ongoing investigation of individuals and other
financial institutions in this matter.”
