The full text of the Letter to the Editors, is below.

As far as I am aware, none of the newspapers has published the letter.


With the increasing violations of human rights in Australia, by both state and federal parliaments, with human rights having been banned in Australia by state and federal parliaments, I ask whether any political party, and, any candidates in the current federal election, will promise to vote to block supply until binding human rights legislation is implemented in Australia, with the human rights legislation to guarantee throughout Australia, internationally recognised human rights such as defined in documents ratified by Australia, such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which has been falsely ratified and "entered into force in Australia" by the federal parliament, but being not recognised in Australian law. We have seen the deception of the Labor government, in holding the forums about human rights, across the country, and then saying "Who cares? Australia will not have human rights!"

I also wonder whether any political party or candidates in the current federal election, will promise to act to institute a federal referendum, to change section 44(i) of the federal constitution, which currently prohibits every Australian citizen who
"is under any acknowledgment of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign power, or is a subject or a citizen or entitled to the rights or privileges of a subject or a citizen of a foreign power"
from being elected to the federal parliament, so that, instead, like New Zealand, allows such people to be elected to the national parliament, but if the person takes on an extra foreign citizenship while being a member of parliament, the person forfeits being a member of the parliament.

At present, many people, probably in the millions (the number has not been provided to me, despite several requests), are required by law, to vote in federal elections, for positions for which they are not allowed to be elected. This is wrong, and, should be changed.

And, I wonder whether any political party or candidates in this federal election, will promise to give legal recognition to marriages and defacto relationships, by acting to institute income sharing (or, also named, splitting), for income tax purposes. At present, in Australian law, income sharing is imposed for determining eligibility for financial benefits paid by the governments, but, not recognised for money to be paid to the government (income tax).

So, I want to know whether any political party, or candidates in this federal election, are genuinely family friendly.
