Although my main topic in this article will be the absence of any sort of national bill of rights in Australia, I think that topic is best approached circuitously, or at least from the side. Put more bluntly, readers in continental Europe may well need some background and context in order to understand why Australia lacks such an instrument and why, in my view, the absence of a bill of rights is a very good thing indeed.
