Paton & Ors v Mackay Regional Council - Council Rates

Local government or municipal office 'rates' are supposed to be for people who make a living from the land, for example farmers, primary producers, etc.

Some Australians are aware that council rates are illegal / unlawful ( regarding domestic dwellings) according to the 'Constitution' but it is with the help of corrupt magistrates and judges that this fraud is perpetuated.

In a recent Queensland Supreme Court judgement made on the 30th of April 2014, the Mackay Regional Council lost the court battle against the Applicants: Ayril Richard Paton & Peter John Crossan & Maincrest Pty Ltd.

Hi, great site you have going. Really appreciate all the info, very interesting.
Would love to read this case "Paton & Ors v Mackay Regional Council - Council Rates".
Sorry, I'm a real newbie. How can I get my hands on it? Are there any updates to this case?
Does this case apply to normal rate payers in the burbs? I live near Brisbane, and am so sick of the constant, unreasonable rates and water bills that come in. Feels like I'm just working to pay the bills.

Kind regards,
Dirt
