About the Book

This book looks at the history of the creation of the 19th century British Act to create the Commonwealth of Australia as a single enlarged colony of the UK. It looks at the character and motivation of the fifty politicians and lawyers designated as the "founding fathers." The book then analyses, for the first time in 114 years, every Clause, Chapter, Section and subsection of the British Act from a layman's point of view, and also, from today's perspective. It takes into account the many events, distortions, manipulation and downright dishonesty surrounding this Act.
