Constitutional protection against invasion, Section 119 - drafted before the boat-borne Invasion of the Louis Vuitton Luggage Owners
This is our constitution in its original form - as a bill of the British Parliament.
Here's the front page.
Smart people put our Constitution together - they had a bit of foresight back in 1900.
The States, or Colonies as they were, decided that the Commonwealth Government should have the defence responsibility.
And so each state made sure the responsibility of the newly established Commonwealth Government was recorded and its duty made clear and explicit. It's one of the clearest pieces of legislation you'll read in a long time.
Section 119 of our Constitution says "The Commonwealth shall protect every state against invasion."
It hasn't changed. Still there. You'll find it at the AUSTLII legislation website here.
So rather than encourage invasion, we got a Constitution that says the people we put in to head the Commonwealth Government shall (shall is a legal term not generally thought to be open to much interpretation) protect us against invasion.
They probably didn't think back then the invasion force would have its gear in the must-have classic "Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy Bag" or similar ($750 at a boutique near your closest UNHCR representative office).
The Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy Bag is the ideal choice for the jet-set sophisticate on the move.
Ocean spray won't worry your designer gown when you tote the Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag. It will stand up to the most belligerent Customs Official sent to impede your progress to fully funded residency in the generous Western State of your choice. With reinforced handles its "just try takin' it off me racist kuffah" as he bows and assists you on your way.
The Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy Bag is perfect for those large ring binders the well-informed-taxpayer-funded-traveller requires to keep up with entitlements. Each bag is guaranteed to pay for itself within the life cycle of 2 Labor Prime Ministers.
Now available on special as an "Entitlement on Application" submitted by a pro-bono lawyer from a large law firm that feels guilty about those files that went missing.
