    Dear Mr. Steve Gibbons MP

    Re: Accountability of Government Departments

    I acknowledge your corespondents which we received on 9th May 2007 which included a copy of the letters from Attorney-General the Hon. Philip Ruddock to yourself dated 2nd May 2007, which we thank you for.

    It now appears that Attorney-General the Hon. Philip Ruddock, has move the goal post of responsibility, Now the matter raised in our earlier correspondence raising constitutional issues. Which we feel needs to be clarified further, as we are not satisfied with Attorney General’s response, it fails to live up to real meaning of “good government” and undermines the expectation of the Australian People.

    Our previous letter 26th April brought to your attention the growing unrest with in the community, also included a copy of our letter the Attorney-General Hon. Philip Ruddock dated 17th April 2007 Re: The Act, To Protect The People of Australia, The Cause And Reason, Something is Wrong.

    We need not mention the many Australians that have already suffered, some even death, partly due to the fact our Government is not committed to protect the People of Australia

    We feel that the People of Australia should be protect in a time of peace, that our Parliament must now insure by lawful legislation that our Government is deeply obligated to Protect the People of Australia. Which you may well agree, I ask, do you agree?

    It would be greatly appreciated if you could bring to Parliaments attention that the Australian Government is not committed to protecting the citizens of Australian, during peace time, The Government of Australia has no proper legislated Act that commits the Government of Australia to Protect the People.

    As to remove any fear or doubt whatsoever with in the community, We ask, if you feel fit to do so, recommend to Parliament, to consider an act that clearly commits the Australian Government in protecting all the Citizens of Australian.

      I gather you sent me this because you are concerned about the Australian Governments lack of commitment to protecting Australian Citizens. I also share your concern. Did you ever get a reply from the government?
