Australian Sovereignty: Who wants to be King and Queen of Australia?

22-02-2009 05:52

Sovereignty of Australia. SO who wants to be King and Queen of Australia?

You will note that the British Empire and High Court Australia declared the continent terra nullis, meaning that white settlers settled and NOT invaded a continent. The problem now is that they didnt set up the Constitution properly, and anyone can come invade and declare sovereignty, since its still terra nullis ;)

For historical buffs and legal afficiandos ;)

NB. Its a banana republic though
