self rep gives it to Hayne J

Ferdinands v His Honour Lander J & Ors [2009] HCATrans 194 (12 August 2009)

[Following the ex temp decision of Hayne J...]
       MR FERDINANDS: Could I just ask you a question, your Honour?

       HAYNE J: Yes, Mr Ferdinands, you may ask.

       MR FERDINANDS: Yes, thank you, your Honour. Just a quick point so that everybody in this country understands. You are saying that the privacy of an individual is wholly and solely irrelevant and that the transfer of private information between government departments of individuals is allowable in law and that that person does not need to have any consent or any knowledge of such actions undertaken by the government, whether it be State, federal or Territory.

       HIS HONOUR: My reasons for judgment, Mr Ferdinands, speak for themselves. I do not propose to add to them. Call the third matter for hearing.

       MR FERDINANDS: Just a simple yes or no, your Honour.

       HIS HONOUR: Sit down, Mr Ferdinands.
