'Northern Territory Mandates Are Invalid': Law Lecturer Geoffrey James

2 April 2022

Retired lawyer of 42 years Geoff James believes the Northern Territory vaccination mandates are invalid at law (ultra vires) and has published an essay explaining why. This argument is distinct from others we have heard because rather than make a moral judgement, Geoff makes the claim that they are simply and technically not law.

His legal argument is being used by class actions in the Norther Territory to fight mandates.

In this interview he steps us through the broad position of law in Western democracies and how executive rule by fiat authority is on the rise but in no way legitimate.
