When Leonard read the Act, he found there was a clause which stated ‘No appeals would be allowed’ plus ‘No compensation would be allowed’. Totally stunned, he lodged 3 protests. One with the Governor of Western Australia, one with the Premier of Western Australia and one with the Wheat Quota Board. Two of them never replied. The Governor, by his actions, made the Queen liable.
Leonard then lodged what was deemed to be the largest claim that the Crown in W.A. had ever come across – all under the ‘Law of Tort’. The claim was around %52,000,000 (plus interest). This had little impact but to put everyone in a tail spin. To cut a longer story short, there were two options. Sue Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth in her courts (as head of state) or exercise the International Law Entitlements to form a Self Preservation Government by seceding from the Commonwealth of Australia. After due consideration the latter was taken on the 21st of April 1970.
