Abstract The 1992 judgmentsI constituted a high watermark of recognition of freedom of speech in Australian constitutional and political history. Given the absence of an express constitutional, or federal statutory, protection of free speech they were symbolically important. Whether or not the judgments, and subsequent iterations of the doctrine/ ushered in a new era for free speech protection is a discrete question, and one which is not the topic of this paper. However, as a moment when a majority of the highest court in the land spoke the language of freedom of political speech for the first time, they remain remarkable. [Extract from paper introduction]
