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.

    Already calls are being made for an ICAC investigation into the NSW Government related to the enormous disparity between what a coal fired power plant sold for recently in the Hunter Valley and its recent revaluation (a difference in excess of $70m) and the Dan Murphy leasehold in Roselle.

    I am deeply concerned about ICAC sackings, six investigators will be sacked because of government cuts. ICAC has proven to be a most effective tool against political corruption, makes one wonder why any government would want to cut funds that could render it less effective?

    Might one suggest that this incumbent government is aware that they will be losing the next election and are making preparations to ensure their future protection from prosecution. This is the question that one asked recently of the Premier, so far have not had a response.

    Cutting back six positions in ICAC shows just how CORRUPT LIBERAL PARTY is.

    It is a sad state of affairs when dishonesty is rife. I remember clearly the police corruption of years ago also. Why this greed! One can only wear one pair of shoes at a time!

    I am a strong advocate for vigilance against corruption in government. In my more than seven decades of living, I have lived in a developing country and seen much of the third world where corruption was and is rampant. We must watch out against official corruption to ensure that we remain in the first world.

    Thank you
