Meagher, with co-authors, Gummow and Lehane, in their seminal work, Equity: Doctrines and Remedies, (to some, a revealed text) asperses the suffocating judicature reforms promulgated in the UK in the late 19th century, to which the New South Wales legislatures and executive succumbed perforce the Supreme Court Act 1970 (NSW).
Meagher urges repeal of the fusion fallacy, in spirit of restoration of the effervescent and ancient current of exchequer reading. Common law, would be Meagher’s expression, on sensible resection of the peculiar sources of Sydney jurisprudence, common law too would regather its vitality.
Difficult to disagree with Meagher when his mind is to the fount of ideals of justice, and their nutrition.
What has happened with Mona Vale Hospital, Manly Hospital, and the Northern Beaches Hospital is a warning of worse to come for us folk of the shire formerly known as Warringah.
There are clear dangers ahead for people of Narrabeen and surrounding suburbs if the NSW Parliament and Government – of whichever party – continue on the urban development paths which have plundered and wasted the beauty of Dee Why, Brookvale, Manly and other parts.
You can see that these developments are careless of the security, happiness and prosperity which should be the promise and delivery of the governments – local, State and Federal – which serve you and your families and friends.
You can wonder why the Northern Beaches Hospital was built grotesquely high, before you realise that the big picture for furtive usurpers is high density apartment towers all around Belrose, Forestville, Frenchs Forest, and millions of dollars in corrupt secret commissions.
You are probably as well very concerned that Healthscope Ltd, a company donor to one of the extant political parties, was awarded, without tender, a contract to operate the Northern Beaches Hospital for 20 years, and then last month sold that operating right to a Canadian-based billionaires club, Brookfield. That’s your property being dealt with by others without your permission.
Mr and Mrs Anthony and Sharni Monaghan live in the Pacific Rivage apartment building on the corner of Lagoon and Wellington Sts, Narrabeen. Sharni is principal of Greylings Attorneys, whose office is in Mosman. Anthony, a former Sydney barrister and journalist, works at Greylings. Mr and Mrs Monaghan are familiar with all aspects of activities of governments in Australia. Sharni is the chairman, since 2011, of the body corporate of Pacific Rivage and has helped to steer the community out of the quagmire of building defects and developer fraudulence which plagued the building after its opening in 2000.
There are many other matters of serious concern about the integrity and competence of the three tiers of Australian government. To meet, match and better the challenges posed by these concerns spurs Anthony and Sharni to be candidates for election to the NSW Legislative Council (Upper House) in the election to be held on Saturday 23 March 2019. We solicit your vote, and the votes of your friends and relatives.
Yours sincerely, Anthony Monaghan Sharni Monaghan
Education is a bedrock of prosperity. All of us in New South Wales wish to see our school teachers content and satisfied, confident in their careers, proud of their professional vocation. If the governments have other agendas, we should have other government.
Responding to SMH article 6 February 2019 The culture driving teachers like me from the profession
The biblical lifespan three score and ten years is distinctly obsolete in the 21st century.
New South Wales parents, and neighbours, are alive to the real prospects of our children, our neighbours’ children, being physically, and psychologically, able to satisfactorily live well beyond a century. Was it three years ago the federal treasurer was talking of this generation living to 150 years?
What is obviously against the soon realisation of the immense benefits of people living far longer than previously is 19th century models of community resource management.
Anthony & Sharni Monaghan will move the New South Wales Parliament to call upon the Federal Parliament to consider its position.
The parliaments should be reconfigured to bring forward working expertise and wise counsel.
The parliamentary powers and the federal arrangements should be swiftly renovated.
It is grossly unfair to New South Wales people that their one-tenth populous sister Tasmania has an equal number of senators in the existing system.
The federal system’s military deployments have been so far unprofitable to the public purse but remunerative to certain private pockets, but endangered the prosperity and peace of the Commonwealth and its peoples, severely.
You can be sure that the New South Wales Upper House is a sufficient parliamentary platform to wring large scale change to improve our freeholds, general services deliveries and future shared prosperity.
Standards of determinations to land use, architecture, construction, certification and freehold title have been abandoned in favour of furtive party preferences. People of New South Wales should seriously contemplate rapid reforms to achievement of progressive standards in public service deliveries.
