Clean politics charter

Our democracy should work for everyone, not just for the corporations who can buy a seat at the table.

I have a plan for a government built for people, not big political donors. Here are six critical steps we can take right now to restore integrity and public confidence in the government:

  1. Ban all corporate political donations
    Extend the existing bans on political donations to all corporations, including fossil fuel companies.

  2. Double ICAC funding
    Increase funding to ICAC to extend their investigative reach.
  3. Protect whistleblowers
    Whistleblowers who disclose to ICAC will be better protected in legislation from criminal, civil or disciplinary liability. 

  4. Close the revolving door between big business and government
    Legislate a five year ‘cooling-off period‘ for ministers, MPs and their staff before they can work in industries where they had significant dealings. 

  5. Extend financial disclosure and transparency
    All MPs to fully disclose their financial interests, and those of immediate family members. All lobbying meetings to be documented through publicly available minutes, published online in real time. 

  6. Create new criminal offences for corrupt conduct
    Introduce new laws to ensure corrupt findings by the ICAC can be easily translated into criminal charges. 

Sign the Clean Politics Charter to tell both sides of politics you want a government that works for the people, not corporations.

    good ideas Jamie! onya! you seem to have covered the creative accounting stuff like pollie’s trusts and property holdings (value of..). All this should be easily accessible to the public and donations up on the AEC (and pollie’s) website as soon as they go through the bank. Thanks!

    I AGREE THAT ANY GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE AND INSTALLED BY THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE MADE TO REVEAL PUBLICLY ALL TRANSACTIONS AND AGREEMENTS MADE WITH THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY!


    WE, THE PEOPLE OF NSW ARE FURIOUS AT THE WAY THIS LIB/NP STATE GOVERNMENT DICTATES TO ITS COMMUNITIES WITHOUT CONSULTATION ON MATTERS THAT IMPACT UPON THEM AND, THEN GOES BEHIND CLOSED DOORS TO MAKE DEALS WITH THEIR BIG BUSINESSES ASSOCIATES!


    ALSO, THERE SHOULD BE NO IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION FOR FORMER MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT IF IT HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED THAT THEY ACTED CORRUPTLY WHILST IN OFFICE, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT’S BEEN SINCE THEY LEFT SAID OFFICE!

    THIS MAY PUT AN END TO THE SECRET DEALS THAT ARE CONSPIRED FOR PERSONAL GAINS KNOWING THAT ANY TIME IN THE FUTURE THEY THE PARLIAMENTARIANS LIKE US MERE MORTALS CAN BE JAILED FOR UNLAWFUL ACTS!

    Long overdue reform – transparency is the prime criteria surely in decision making for the community. Thank you Jamie for taking this up.

    Tell them to stop hobbling ICAC and get them to look at Baird and his shady deals on Westconnex and Transurban, among others. If Greiner’s on the board of Transurban and then he’s appointed to a board deciding Sydney’s future transport needs, surely that is a conflict of interest?
