NewsFlash The Australian media mentions the Constitution

It's funny how on social media when people talk about law and how ALL laws of every state and territory MUST comply with a law (read Act) called Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act, but when it comes to the mainstream media there is no such mention of this founding law document from the scribes of any publication.

Well it looks like we've been foiled this time, by the Fairfax publication where they mention Section 44 (v) of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act of 1901.

What is Section 44 part five you may ask?

Why it is;

Disqualification of Any person who:

has any direct or indirect pecuniary interest in any agreement with the Public Service of the Commonwealth otherwise than as a member and in common with the other members of an incorporated company consisting of more than twenty-five persons;
shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a member of the House of Representatives. 

why of course silly.

Every elector should ask their local federal MP for a free copy of this thing referred to as  the 'Constitution'.
