Australia Day in Israel Constitution Act Protected content

Preamble: Let all Aussie expats, visiting Aussies and their friends (henceforth: "the members") come together to celebrate the 225th anniversary of the beginning of British penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales. Come one, come all!

(i.) From 7:00 P.M. until 9:00 P.M., the public house shall be reserved for the members. Aussie rock will be broadcast over the sound system. There will be a drinks deal on "chasers" (although it would be un-Australian to drink anything but beer and eat anything but lamb on our national holiday).
