    The Kennett government and the constitution: no change?
    WAUGH, JOHN (UNSW Press, 1999)
    A persistent criticism of the government led by Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett from 1992 to 1999 was that it had changed or weakened the State's constitution. This chapter analyses changes to the text of the constitution, the jurisdiction of the State's Supreme Court, government immunity, independence of public offices and constitutional checks and balances. It concludes with comments on the nature of change under a constitution that can be amended by ordinary legislation.
