Here is the true story of my ancestors, The Bentley's Hotel at the Ballarat East goldfield which were attacked and burnt by a mob of 4000 gold diggers because of British colonial government high tax fees as licenses per person who were also badly treated by the Police on the field. Opposition to these harsh laws and taxes began to boil over at the Eureka gold camps which on the 3rd December 1854 with the Army & the Police attack on the Eureka Stockade with 38 gold digger rebels killed at dawn that day! The British government and its Parliament still owes me as the Bentley's heir at law 13 Million pounds compensations and interest accruing since the 17 th October 1854 due to frauds in their Parliament of Victoria whilst it was a Colony of Britain that saw my ancestors left destitute and penniless ! Have a good read dear friends as these matters are still current ?
