What We Need

We need a credible alternative to the current Liberal National Party.

What are the characteristics of this alternative?

Forward thinking - presenting solutions.  As well as highlighting the mistakes and corruption of the current government.  Alternative policies and solutions should also be presented.

Courage - voting and voicing concerns, based on evidence, about actions and policies of government.  And supporting policies that make sense and benefit the community.

Integrity - insist on integrity in all things and practice it.  Do the clean out now and start fresh.  Hiding a mess makes it worse.  Clean it up now.

Competence - ensure the selection of candidates is done with the job in mind - not just winning a seat.  

No fighting in public - work out your differences behind closed doors and come out with  united front.

Reply with both criticism and pro-active statement about how you would handle a problem like this when in government.  Substantiate with numbers and logic.

Keep the discussion on things that matter.

Keep the dicussion on "people of interest"

Keep your eye on the ball - "who precisely do we need to persuade?" What are our true values and how do they translate into sound economic policy.

The Heart of the Problem

What is the problem?

  • Biased media coverage.
  • Manipulation of timing of election and "party promotion disguised as public announcements using taxpayer funds"
  • Misleading registered party names on ballot papers.
  • Misleading campaign material at voting places and distributed in neighbourhoods prior to elections.
  • Deliberate destruction of election material prior to the election.


Election campaigns: New Rules

Each party will be allocated an election fund to spend.

  • An amount per candidate.

There will be up to 5 public forums  allowed for candidates to debate the issues of their electorates. - Town Hall Meetings in each electorate - live feed and distributed across all social media.  No paid promotion.

Names of Parties must be unambiguous and not be confused with currently registered parties.  For those parties registered but ambiguous the parties who most recently registered will need to alter the names.

Election material will be templated with colors and logos to clearly differentiate parties/candidates, but will have set heading space, limited word count and come with a legally binding and accountable terms and conditions of publication.

All election material must be submitted to the AEC within 2 weeks of an election being called.

Campaigning - to prevent the game playing that occurred at the 2016 election.  Election dates will be set 3 months ahead. Campaigning will begin for everyone 3 weeks prior to the Election date.

There will be an embargo on government notices unless related to an emergency or essential service.  An ombudsperson will be appointed to mediate these notices.

    Jacqui Lambie:...the same mistake-I'm owning up to it. Every time I hear the Labor Party talk about how they want to 'strengthen', 'fix' or 'tighten up' our donation laws or say, 'Let's bring on a national ICAC in Australia,' I make the mistake of letting myself get sucked into having a bit of hope that they'll stick to their word. I make the mistake of getting my hopes up every time, and every time...

    James Stevens:...'t. The Hawke government and the Keating government could have done that but, of course, they didn't. The Whitlam government could have done it. Imagine if the Whitlam government had established an ICAC. There would be a lot more people in jail, had the Whitlam government established a corruption body to oversee the performance of that government and what some of those ministers got up to...

    Jacqui Lambie:...no longer shocked with behaviour that happens in politics. It's beyond disgusting, but it's not surprising, because, let's face it, it happens; it continues to happen. And, once again, there's no ICAC. I wonder why? The latest scandal has had its fair share of faceless men too. This one was just like the other ones: a young guy comes in who is focused on factual fights instead of achieving...
