Enforceable “behaviour principles” for our politicians

post-image

Prof George Williams has called for “a narrowly drawn law for truth in political advertising” and for “greater penalties, including criminal sanctions, in extreme cases of flouting the law”.  

Is this enough? Our politicians expect professionals and businesspeople to act more responsibly than that. They should be held to the same standards as they endorsed for bankers from the Hayne Royal Commission principles:  

Obey the law; do not mislead or deceive; be fair; provide services that are fit for purpose; deliver services with reasonable care and skill; and when acting for another, act in the best interests of that other.
