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 given total freedom and funding to carry out its critical role – the need for which has been well established and proven.

    Politicians who do not fully support ICAC should be queried and investigated over what they have to hide from the people who elected them (and pay their salaries).

    Dear Mike Baird,

    I waiting for you to come good on your promise to clean up the corruption in NSW politics. Not giving proper funding to be ICAC shows the opposite intention.

    Regards,

    Just like Labor the Liberal National coalition has showed itself to be beneath contempt when it comes to using banned political donations, covering up, lying and intentionally undermining government watchdogs.
