Question:
"Does the Lease dated 6 December 2000 require the Humpty Dumpty Foundation to pay rent to the unlawful Sub-Lessee, Love 'n Deuce Pty. Limited?"
Answer: No.

It is clear from the Resolution of Willoughby City Council on 12 July 1999, and from documentation surrounding the Lease negotiation in 1999, that Willoughby Council gave the Humpty Dumpty Foundation rent-free occupation of the Talus Reserve.

Why, then, has the Humpty Dumpty Foundation been paying rent since no later than 1999 to Love 'n Deuce Pty. Limited? Why have the Directors of the Foundation "ratified" the payment of these bogus rent charges? Is this charity fraud? It certainly gives new meaning to the Balmoral Burn: the Humpty Dumpty Foundation is "burning" donors' donations by making bogus "rent" payments to Love 'n Deuce.

Every dollar paid as bogus rent by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation to Love 'n Deuce Pty. Ltd
(the private company of Humpty Dumpty Foundation Chairman Paul Francis)
is a dollar NOT spent to help sick children.

"Rent" paid since 1999 exceeds $450,000!
that sum would have bought a lot of medical equipment for children's hospitals.
