A prominent academic speaks out on complicit behaviours involving Australian judges. It should be noted that the government has done everything in it's power to shut down and censor commentary by Dr Jones.
Dr Evan Jones has been an advocate for franchisees for decades but here we gain an insight into how a country operates.
I doubt I can do this attachment justice but it needs to be out there and it needs to be read in the context of the email I received with it:
'Attached a submission I made to the Senate Legal Committee's inquiry into the judicial system earlier this year. specifically re the legal profession's complicity in bank malpractice.
The inquiry was subsequently dismantled (I have never heard of such an event) and two mini inquiries with several proscribed terms of reference substituted.
So I had a string of failures - my submission to the franchising inquiry heavily censored (but at least it got up - courtesy of a secretariat not quite in control), my submission to the inquiry into the terms of the unconscionable conduct provision rejected (too hurtful to guilty parties), ditto my submission to the early 2009 inquiry into bank mergers (though I subsequently went directly to Zenophon and it appears that he will quote from it), finally my submission to the judicial inquiry - rendered nugatory.
The power elite don't want to know. And Labor is as bad as the other lot.
On the issue of contractual imbalance, there is a section in the sub (section II) which categories the long standing means by which the powerful get their own way.'
Take the time to read and consider this work. Dr Jones has been on the faculty of the University of Sydney since 1973. This is a link to the Doctor's submission to the Australian Franchising Inquiry. It is secondary to the attachment.
