Abstract

History in itself is fascinating, being the story of the human condition and the emergence of our species to what we hope is, and will be, a higher plane of peace and security, economic equity and respect for fundamental rights. History has an important component. That is why a life in law can never be far from history.1 When the Court sat at Noon on Saturday 29th April, it was announced from the Bench that circumstances had arisen which left us no alternative but to postpone the sittings of the Court appointed to be held in Melbourne on the following Tuesday (2nd May) … We did not resort to this means until the position had become intolerable.2
