Does anyone know Albert's date of birth? Adam 29 June 2005 03:33 (UTC) There are an awful lot of "citation neededs" on this page. If a writer does not have a source for a statement, or does not know where a particular tidbit came from, then it seems to me he or she is relying on rumour and hearsay rather than fact, which means such information could well be wrong or only partly right. Unless one wishes to devalue the worth of Wikipedia by turning it into a rumour mill rather than the online equivalent of an encyclopedia such information should either not be used at all--that is, wait until it is confirmed then include it--or it should be filed separately from the information one is certain of (under a heading titled something like "Unconfirmed Information").

Hi, I'm Albert's daughter. I have his birth certificate, but its fake. The birth certificate says he was born on Australia Day in London in 1949. He was actually born in British Mandate Palestine. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nikova Kalish (talkcontribs) 01:19, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Voting system[edit]

Which voting system was used? ( i.e. please explain voting 1,2,2,2) RJFJR 22:56, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

The other way...[edit]

The 2013 federal election results show a massive swing of nearly 17% towards non-voting, in addition to nearly 6% of the turnout who voted informal (over 10% in ten seats). Bjenks (talk) 07:35, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Monash Uni Court Order Contempt and Subsequent Arrest[edit]

I read on the internet a couple of years ago (but cannot find the info now) that as part of the Vietnam War protests he organised a student boycott at the uni and there was a court order that he not enter the campus, which he ignored and got arrested and imprisoned for. If anyone can find citations for this that would be great because (unlike the Neither! campaign) it would mean the courts can make up a law on a whim. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sqgl (talkcontribs) 12:36, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Vietanam War[edit]

Actually Albert Langer is best known in a Australia as a major leader in the anti-Vietnam war protests, his electoral efforts being very much a post-script to that history. In particular he raised money for the National Liberation Army, and successfully defended his right to do that before the Australian High Court. He is I suppose an Australian equivalent to Abbie Hoffman or the like. There is a character based on him in The Outcasts of Foolgarah, a novel by the Australian author Frank Hardy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:33, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

I am your daughter and I have a birth certificate to prove it. Robinlanger (talk) 10:51, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

@Robinlanger: Birth certificates are not acceptable sources for articles. See WP:BLPPRIMARY. —C.Fred (talk) 18:08, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
