Toni Hildebrand - It's a politician's dream constituency: a captive audience of people who don't care enough to want the truth. 
Toni Hildebrand deplores the intellectual sloth she sees around her, a lazi­ness that accepts what is served up to it without question, that makes independent opinion an impossibility, that has no vision of a future beyond paying off the mortgage or getting a promotion at work. 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.  

Steve Godfrey - Restoring Queensland’s Independence. The New Queensland Movement (NQM) was founded for one purpose: to restore Queensland ’s independence. Hard won from NSW in 1859, it was voluntarily surrounded in 1901. Why?  NQM believe an independent Queensland will lead to similar movements in WA and NSW. These would ‘cleanse’ each state: politically and otherwise; a total reform of social and economic relations. These movements would reverse the decline of our continent and project a stabilising influence onto an increasingly unstable region and world. This is Steve’s first time on the Inverell Forum platform.

Terry 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 a fixed belief that you must give all your money to government and banks. You have been deliberately misled.” This is the subject of a short speech by Terry Worthing, his second time to an Inverell Forum.
