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.

    ICAC must be defended; the sacking of latham is totally unacceptable; whistleblowers must be protected – Jean Lennane used to help in this regard.

    I am so sick of all the corruption and Greed that is going on in the world. These corrupt, greedy people are ruining our country and the world, it has to stop, we need some transparency in Politics. The decisions being made our ruining the Environment, there will be no turning back, unless we act soon.

    The only reason a government would weaken the ICAC is because it is corrupt. No other logic can apply.

    Unfortunately the present Coalition Government has gone down the drain; hobbling ICAC, NSW Biodiversity Act, approving coal mines and CSG projects, kicking poor people out of low cost housing, forced council amalgamations. Is it not possible to have a decent, honest government?
