I've just created a new list on yahoogroups. Please do NOT mail on the
regarding this. It's about politics, and an area where a lot of people
very strong
opinions, so will probably end up in a flame-fest despite my best

The reason I'm posting on this list is because I particularly value the
opinions of
people on it, much as I may disagree with many of them.

I've been selected (by lottery) as a representative at a mini-convention
discuss whether the Australian Capital Territory needs a Bill of Rights
not - and if so, what form it should take.

I'm therefore canvassing other people who can give me *evidence* to back
either proposition. Such evidence could include:

How well does your country do with/without such a bill?

What effect does having/not having such a bill have on your daily life?

How did your country end up with a Bill ( For example, the US Bill of
has portions directly lifted from the British Bill of Rights 1688 ).

URLs are strongly encouraged - if you have an opinion, please back it up
with concrete evidence if you can. Newspaper stories, links to

The List is unmoderated. Flamers will be despised and ignored.
