It's a politician's dream constituency: a captive audience of people who don't care enough to want the truth. Toni's is an unfashionable voice of dissent in her recently published collection of view-points, essays and reviews. The Past is Another Country” is a distillation of thought and opinion informed by study and research. This is Toni’s first time to an Inverell Forum.

Worthing - Taxes & govt. charges are immoral & unlawful .
.“You allow your money to be stolen because of your lack of knowledge of money and representative government, neither of which is taught by your masters.

You have been deliberately misled.” This is the subject of a short speech by Terry Worthing, his second time to an Inverell Forum.
