AN OPPORTUNITY EXISTS FOR OUR POLITICIANS TO LEAD A REVOLUTION IN BEHAVIOUR
Our politicians must start “practising what they preach” – including effective diversity programs and embracing the Hayne Royal Commission’s six fundamental statements, that define the intent of the law:   1. Obey the law 2. Do not mislead or deceive 3. Act fairly 4. Provide services that are fit for purpose 5. Deliver services with reasonable care and skill 6. When acting for another, act in the best interests of that other.   If our politicians were to behave, and be judged, in-line with these principles we would not be seeing them in such a “muddle” and being so “distrusted”.

A changed Senate will allow Australia to move forward with agility
Our Senate is too often obstructive to efficient and effective government in Australia.   The Senate was designed to be a check and balance in our Federation but now often obstructs governments from implementing their clear electoral mandate.   New Zealand operates effectively without an upper house. The UK Upper House by convention allows the elected government to implement the platform presented to the electorate, can only block a bill three times before the lower house can pass this into law, and cannot block supply.   Australians deserve a better system – let’s band together and push for change!http://democraticrenewal.org.au/
