 Letter of Intention “Notice”   

 This letter confirms your election by your party to the roll of Prime minister has not met with the legal requirements to take up a seat in our parliament.

 It appears from this video and many other coverage notes regarding your swearing in as Prime minister, that you a have not complied with the constitutional requirements to sit in your position as prime minister, it would also appear from even brief research, you are one of many members of parliament who have ignored section 42 of our constitution.   

 Note” Members: oath of allegiance Mr NEWTON-BROWN (Prahran) -- Victoria having just been visited by Prince William, it is timely for us to reflect on this Parliament's relationship with the Crown. The Victorian constitution requires us to swear allegiance to the Crown before we are able to serve in this Parliament. I remind members of the exact wording. We swear that we will 'be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty and Her Majesty's heirs and successors according to law'. There is no mention of our allegiance to the people of Victoria, whom we represent on a day-to-day basis in this house.  

 As Australia is not a republic and continues to be part of the commonwealth, it is my view that it is appropriate that allegiance be sworn to the Crown before any member may legally take his or her seat, as confirmed by Mr. Brown.  

 Section 46;  Until the Parliament otherwise provides, any person declared by this Constitution to be incapable of sitting as a senator or as a member of the House of Representatives shall, for every day on which he so sits, be liable to pay the sum of one hundred pounds to any person who sues for it in any court of competent jurisdiction.  

 I there fore ask that you consider an out of court settlement rather than waste our high courts precious time, considering the law is very clear on this matter.   Pro rated to current monitory standards, 100 pounds in today value would exceed $3,700   per day, a rather large amount of money, my wide and I run a native animal sanctuary which is very expensive to maintain, with the decline in retail sales, an out of court settlement, may at this early stage be entertained.   

 I am unaware if this amount would incur taxation, there fore further backing my position to entertain an out of court settlement.   

 COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA CONSTITUTION ACT - SECT 3 
 Salary of Governor-General                   
There shall be payable to the Queen out of the Consolidated Revenue fund of the Commonwealth, for the salary of the Governor‑General, an annual sum which, until the Parliament otherwise provides, shall be ten thousand pounds.The salary of a Governor‑General shall not be altered during his continuance in office.”  

 (The Current salary for the Governor amounts to $365,000 http://www.aph.gov.au/library/pubs/rn/2003-04/04rn12.pdf)   

 If for some reason I am unaware of a referendum that has changed the terms of the constitution backing your position, could you please provide details, or in the case you believe you have a defense to the matter raised.
