Remember back in primary school when there was always one nerdy kid who dobbed in his classmates for any transgression, real or imagined? Remember how much this pissed off the nerd's classmates? Well, some nerds never learn:
Greens Senator Bob Brown announced today he has sent the government’s Anti-Terrorism Bill (No.2) 2005 to the United Nations Human Rights Committee for assessment.

“Extensive evidence before the Senate inquiry showed how these terror laws breach Australia’s legal obligations under international law”, Senator Brown said.

“We will be asking the United Nations to review the laws in light of the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights.”
I'll bet he was the best hall monitor ever.

In unrelated news, Brown objects to Howard's $1 million nuclear dog whistle. Brown's got a point on this one: I mean, just think of all the foreign pooches that'll drown attempting to swim to Australia.

It is always amazing the certain people want their own constitution to be subservient to UN treaties or any treaty for that matter. Even the UN charter makes no such claim.
