Cardimona claims his Constitutional rights

And Cardimona is the winner!

Manager agrees fee is not applicable because of the Australian Constitution.
Permit granted.
We’re about to get a thunderstorm so I’ll start tomorrow.
I want to be there between 1000 and 1300, precisely because of the weather at this time of year.
Thank you, Rafe.
Thank you, Cats.
Up yours, TRC counter staff and local laws numpties.

The backstory.

Our man in Tolga locked horns with the local council in Atherton when he applied to set up a table in the street to meet the people. Two obstructive petty officials at the front desk were not prepared to accept the application and when the Independent Candidate  made a fuss they recruited a council ranger to escort him off the premises. Given the disparity in size between the enraged Independent Candidate and the ranger, that was not likely to work so they threatened to call the police.

Cardimona loudly and insistently demanded an audience with a manager and eventually a man appeared and allowed him a hearing, then asked for an hour to deliberate. Two reporters are standing by to see what happened next.

OFF TOPIC again, no wind in the East this evening, take out SA and it is about 2% of total power supply.

    Given this happened yesterday… did they decided not to report it?

    And again, well done Cardi!

  2. C.L.

    Go, Cardi.

    Did anyone sit down and try to change your mind? 🙂

  3. dopey

    Bloke in a green t-shirt heading your way.

  4. I’ve had two customers so far, both on my side so no good arguments yet…
    I got insulted by an elderly greenie – from a very great distance…!
    Got a few beeps from passing traffic.

    No report in the Cairns Post – but the reporter only rang me back at 4 pm.
    The other reporter was from The Express, which is a privately-owned local weekly paper.

    Interested to know what part of constitution applies.

    Implied freedom of speech?

    Remember cardi – there is no such thing as bad publicity.

    More votes will be headed your way.

    Interesting that a man with a picnic table causing no interference to anybody draws such heat. Meanwhile Extinction Rebellion types can glue themselves to all manner of things and completely disrupt people’s lives and businesses and the same by-laws officers stand around scratching their nuts.

    Wasn’t driving an MX-5 by any chance?

    Rock ‘n rolla, Mr Cardimona!

    (When you get bored, please please come West. There’s a guaranteed Anger vote here…)

  11. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    Meanwhile Extinction Rebellion types

    Or Black Imbeciles Matter marches held in the midst of a bat flu inspired mass incarceration.

  12. Implied freedom of political speech as determined by a 1992 High Court case, pete m.
    It’s towards the end of the Australian Government Solicitor’s Overview that forms the foreword to the Australian Constitution when you download it from the aph.gov.au website.

  13. BLM – I thought that stood for Belligerent Lying Marxists….

    Implied freedom of political speech as determined by a 1992 High Court case, pete m.

    Worth noting that it applies only to political speech and even then there are caveats that apply.

    Australia is the only Anglophone country that doesn’t recognise freedom of speech as a constitutional right, which is a disgrace.

    In any case, well played Cardimona.

  15. JMH

    Keep giving ’em hell, Cardi. All the best for Saturday. I’ll be watching the results.

  16. Zatara

    Interested to know what part of constitution applies.

    Is “Don’t fuck with people who aren’t breaking the law” a part of the constitution?

    Maybe it should be. Bill of Rights anyone?

  17. win

    Great work. A reason to keep tabs on the result come Saturday night.

  18. stackja

    Zatara – Bill of Rights needs to be worded like USA. Otherwise leftists will gain more power.

    And that’s just the wymmenses.

    Green policies have doubled our power bills – for no effect other than fuel poverty, loss of livelihoods and demolition of our international competitiveness.

  22. covid ate my homework

    Regardless of what the constitution says. To the Marxists it’s just a piece of paper when it suits them and absolute cornerstone of demoncracy when it doesn’t.

    Look where we’ve come…from everything being permitted unless explicitly prohibited to everything prohibited unless explicitly permitted. Light years apart.

    Where my country gone???

  23. pbw

    I’m amazed to see Peter FitzSimons sitting at the table.

    As of now isn’t it “Biden’s Laptop Matters”?

    They say everyone has a doppelganger – mine just happens to be evil….

    Custard
    Thanks, bro, I can’t believe how much hard work goes into running a one man show campaign! By Saturday night I’ll be completely stuffed.

    Nob
    Nah, mate, mine is the freezer bag hanging on the trolley. The one on the chair belonged to the sweet young thing who took the photo with my phone.

    Twins separated at birth.

    This is the kind of trench warfare or house to house fighting that is required to retrieve the nation. Not for the faint hearted!
