Members, not warlords, should be running political parties by Prof George Williams AO
"The bad behaviour of our politicians can hide deeper problems. In the case of branch stacking, it is the poor regulation of Australia’s political parties. They shape public decision-making and determine who stands for parliament, yet operate out of the public eye. The absence of scrutiny is by design. Political parties have been given legal structures enabling them to exercise considerable power without transparency or accountability."

I support the proposition: “The federal government will be obliged
to consult the Indigenous Voice to parliament when crafting laws on race,
native title and racial discrimination which impact upon Aboriginal
Australians.” (Source AAP/SBS)Additionally, the federal government should be obliged to effectively consult
the broader community (citizens jury or like process) when crafting policy and laws
which have a significant impact on their lives and the wellbeing of future
generations. Examples are climate change, energy policy, taxation & the
social safety net, affordable housing, education, healthcare and the wellbeing,
socialisation & learning development of children.https://www.democraticrenewal.org.au/
"Financial institutions are upgrading their technology to navigate the pandemic. But in the current regulatory climate, new tech demands new ways of managing risk.Institutions will have to balance the benefits of technological advances with the challenges of risk management. In our experience, three key components are equally essential to striking this balance:1. Establish a new risk strategy and culture2. Ensure attention, knowledge, and support at both operational and board levels3. Shift the organizational mindset from governance to reinforcing desired behaviour"McKinsey Digitalhttps://www.mckinsey.com/business-functions/mckinsey
