Lord Bingham - 'Dignity, Fairness and Good Government: The Role of a Human Rights Act', Speech by Senior Law Lord to Human Rights Law Resource Centre (9 December 2008)

"It would clearly test to destruction the tolerance of the ordinary red-blooded Australian to have a Pom getting off the plane from London and telling them how to run their country.  So I shall not presume to say how the current human rights debate in this country should be resolved.  But perhaps I may contribute some thoughts, prompted by our own experience in the United Kingdom, acknowledging as I do so that the Australian context, while in some ways similar, is in others significantly different."
