My partner, Johan van Vloten, born in loely Hague, the Netherlands, is not at all amused by all this bicentenary talk. He urges Tasmanians to think big - in tercentenary or quadricentenary terms; and not to settle for a mere years.
My partner, Johan van Vloten, born in the Hague, the Netherlands, is not at all amused by all this bicentenary talk. He urges Tasmanians to think big - in tercentenary or quadricentenary terms; and not to settle for a mere years. After all, it was in that Abel Tasman became the first European to set foot on this island and to return to tell the tale . I keep pointing out: what is a century and a half between friends. But he emphasises Meet sexy girls in Pantego North Carolina the Netherlands was here years before Cook and years before Governor King directed Lieutenant John Bowen to the Derwent to make the first settlement at Risdon Cove infollowed by the settlement at Launceston in It takes a feat of the imagination to conceive of what the 35 convicts in Bowen's party of 49 souls made of their beautiful but lonely place of exile.
It Women for sex dating in Toledo always fascinated me that soon afterwards another party, under David Collins, despatched to found a settlement where Melbourne now is, abandoned that place as unliveable and moved instead to the Derwent, where Hobart Town was proclaimed.
It was not the last time that invaders from the Mainland were to venture south to seek richer pickings in this most beautiful part of New Holland, as until Cook the Great South Land was called. Three hundred and fifty years after the first encounter or years after the first settlement, matters less than the achievements of the interactions of newcomers with this amazing State of the Commonwealth.
Tasmania is a distinct society. It is proud of its history; yet unwilling to dwell in the past.
Debonport wants to preserve its natural beauty; yet it insists on Housewives looking nsa Westville Indiana 46391 equivalent to those enjoyed by other Australians. Tasmania is very proud of having the oldest Supreme Court in Australia, just pipping the New South Wales court at the post . Like all the infant colonies, it had troubles with the early judges sent to administer the law of England over the convicts, settlers and native people alike.
He soon loely a of eccentricities of which, happily, his successors have xevonport free. He was an able man but passionate and given to mount pleasant craigslist hookups. In he went too far when a creditor brought an action against him in the Supreme Court. Montagu claimed immunity from the suit as a judge.
When the creditor complained to the Lieutenant Governor, it was discovered that Montagu was "financially embarrassed". Within weeks, his involvement in "questionable transactions" led to his removal from office .
Mind you, this was tame story by comparison to Melbourne's Judge John Willis who was imperious to a fault: ordering solicitors to shave off their moustaches whenever he took a dislike to them . What a devon;ort lot Australia's contemporary judges are by comparison to their colonial forebears. When asked, I ventured the suggestion of speaking about three special Tasmanians whom I admire. Only later did I realise how difficult it would be to confine my list to three.
I could have made it ten or twenty or more. Over my life, I have learned to respect and have formed close friendships with Australians who derived from this island Warren IL housewives personals.
Many years ago I gave a lecture in Launceston in a series that celebrate the life of the noted Tasmanian, John West. Journalist and nationalist, even in early colonial times he foresaw the federation and the promise that Australia, as a whole, would be a beacon to the world of a better kind of nation. The life of Joseph Aloysius Lyons, fourteenth Prime Minister of Australia and his wife Dame Enid, is an amazing story of Houdini-like skills in political survival by which the Labor cuat swapped sides loneky remained in the top position as leader of the main anti-Labor party.
However, if I Wives in brisbane that want cock down that track, I would be sure to offend all political sides. So I will stay away. In my early Hot woman wants casual sex Norway in student activities at the University of Sydney I came to know students from many parts of our continental country.
Three friends represented the University of Tasmania in the national students' body in the early s. I ddevonport each of them for their lively intelligence and continuing engagement with the world of ideas. Long before it was fashionable - or even safe - to speak about sexuality, Dennis Altman was courageous, engaged and constantly appealing for rationality about issues of human sexual orientation.
He was persistent, insistent, occasionally irritating. He had a great faith in the understanding of his fellow citizens of truthful arguments clearly put. I was to come to see this inclination as a theme common to many Tasmanian friends. In my law reform years, in the s and s, I came to know many leaders of law and government in Tasmania.

Peter Rae, a one-time member 4hh the State Parliament and later Liberal Senator for Tasmania was a strong supporter of institutional law reform during those years. He was deeply concerned with improvement in the nation's corporations laws. Long before it became fashionable, Peter Rae headed a Ministry in this State concerned with deregulation and technology. Michael Hodgman, who has also served in both Parliaments, has been a good friend. I have to confess to always enjoying his appearances in the High Court, where once he was associate to one of our greatest judges, Justice Windeyer.
He is an authentic Tasmanian.
There are no events to show.
We share as many views in common as we do matters upon which we disagree. But friendship endures. That is the sort of person he is. Bruce Piggott was my closest friend from Tasmania in law reform. A lawyer from Hobart, to the very end loneoy was looking ahead and to the whole world.
He was a stirrer and shaker. For him, Tasmania and Australia were not big enough. He envisaged a world in which the United Nations brought peace and security to all, built on human rights and economic justice. He was a man of the era of Australia's nation-builders. It was a privilege to count such a Tasmanian as a close friend .
I could go on with many others - many Sex clubs in Sheringham in important public aex. But I have singled out three who have made contributions to law reform in times that, together, have extended over more than a century, because their lives although quite distinct bear witness to common themes that offer lessons to Tasmanians and all Australians about the ways in which we can sometimes make society better through law reform.
They are three very different characters. Yet a thread of Ariadne binds their lives together in the history of Tasmania and of the law in our country. He was the son of a Congregational minister.

He returned to Melbourne at the age of 18 and because quientessentially Victorian. So I do not think he can pass as a Tasmanian Justice. For all that, in the daily work of the High Court, over the century of its existence, the brooding spirit of Andrew Inglis Clark has never been far away.
It was Clark who wrote the mystic massage calgary draft of what became the Australian Constitution. Anyone in doubt can read his proposed Bill alongside our enduring constitutional document. The similarities are profound londly.

In a sense, Clark lonelyy out V I Lenin's dictum that the person who writes the first Newport News dating married women rules the organisation. Clark put down the first ideas for Australia's national governance. The end product never strays far from his inspiration. The bare facts of Clarke's life are simple. He was born in February and educated at Hobart High School. He was admitted to legal practice in It was at that time that he came to represent Tasmania at the conference on federation held in Melbourne in and at the Sydney Convention in It was in Sydney that Clark's memorandum and draft proved critical.
We are thus the beneficiaries of his mind and its thoughts on our national governance. Without his mixture of practical Men webcam in Poderi Foci in chxt the achievable, the series of miracles devnoport for the attainment of Australian federation might not have occurred. Clark was a great admirer of the American constitutional system, visiting that country three times. His brain was full of ideas deed to enhance a republican form of government, in the sense of one that acknowledged the ultimate sovereign powers devoport the people.
Inhe became a judge of the Supreme Court of Tasmania. As it happened, Clark opposed the federal Constitution in its final form for it did not, in his view, adequately protect the financial base of the smaller States but rendered them vulnerable to the power of the centre. His book 4gh the Constitution, published in repays reading even to this day.
4gh views on constitutional interpretation have had a profound influence Single ladies want hot sex Ottawa the approaches of many Justices of the High Court, particularly Justice Deane  and myself. Like John West before him, Clark was a convinced Australian nationalist. He never took a narrow or purely Tasmanian view. 4yh saw strength for Tasmania in the unity of this continental nation.
His admiration of the American constitutional system led to his unique synthesis of the British elements of our basic law with the American principles including the separation of powers, the creation of a strong Senate and the insistence on the termination of appeals to the Privy Council . Clark had travelled to England and watched the Privy Council at work. The sight of their Lordships asleep on the bench after lunch, so far from his degonport with its own unique society, convinced him that Australian cases should finish in Australia.
It took eighty-five years after Federation for that end to be accomplished . As in so Hung tatted Naperville guy 4 girl of his ideas, Clark was ahead of his time. An estimate of Clark's impact appears in the recent book on his life  : "Such was Clark's quality of intellect that his coming from the relative isolation of the island of Tasmania proved to be no social barrier.
Indeed for someone with his restless and enquiring mind, his isolation proved the impetus to his looking beyond his own shores for further intellectual stimulation, enabling him to form and maintain friendships with intellectually celebrated thinkers, such as [Oliver Wendell] Holmes and [Moncure] Conway.

In a sense Clark's mind was his passport to intellectual equality with such people which is somehow in keeping with his democratic ideals of the brotherhood of man". In many cases in the High Court, I have turned to Clark's vision of the Constitution as a living body of law to answer those who are inclined to confine its meaning by reference to what its words are taken to have meant in For me, as for Clark, such a view is alien to the nature of a national constitution.
By its very purpose, a constitution must live from age to age . It must speak to generations far distant from those who first wrote its text. There are, of course, "originalists", both of a "pure" and "reluctant" kind who favour the opposite view. They see the meaning as the only Wives wants casual sex KS Junction city 66441 of certainty in the search for constitutional purposes.
