Formatted abstract
The author, a bill of rights sceptic, begins by outlining the recent attempt in Australia to garner support for, and then to enact, a statutory bill of rights by means of a national consultation committee. He then explains why that attempt failed. He also discusses two influential cases from the State of Victoria, the only Australian State that has a statutory (or any sort of) bill of rights. And he concludes by relating this failed attempt to bring in a statutory bill of rights to New Zealand and the New Zealand experience.
