Greens want loans tied to cash rate moves


The Australian Greens will be seeking backing from the federal parliament to make retail banks offer mortgages and small business loans that are linked directly to movements in the official cash rate. The proposal comes after something of a stand-off by the big four banks after the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) cut the cash rate on Tuesday. It was broken by the ANZ Bank on Thursday when it announced it would be pass on the full reduction to mortgages and small business loans. The other major banks - Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank and Westpac - have yet to ...

The Australian Greens party is pushing to repeal an anti-terrorism law introduced by former Prime Minister John Howard’s government, saying it was rushed through Parliament and undermines human rights.Greens Senator Scott Ludlam said aspects of the law are “extreme,” vaguely worded and undemocratic and he will introduce legislation today to scrap them.“You can be convicted for ‘recklessly possessing a thing,’ whatever that may be, or expressing political dissent,” Ludlam said in a statement. “You can be questioned and detained for prolonged ...

Queensland Greens propose $10 billion Public Infrastructure Bank
Friday, November 10, 2017 Under the Greens the State government will establish a Queensland Public Infrastructure Bank to invest $10 billion in public infrastructure over five years. Queensland Greens lead spokesperson and candidate for South Brisbane Amy MacMahon said: “Queensland is facing a critical shortage of public infrastructure, so the Greens will create a $10 billion Public Infrastructure Bank funded primarily by making sure mining corporations and property developers pay their fair share. “The Queensland Public Infrastructure Bank will invest in the schools, hospitals, green space and public transport our State desperately needs. “Right now, public infrastructure is not keeping pace with development and growth, while many Queenslanders are being left behind. “Wages are stagnant and joblessness and underemployment are both rife while corporate profits are soaring. “Both Labor and the LNP are committed to low taxes for their big corporate donors and low investment
HMAS Albatross PFOS contamination - call for mandatory blood testing for all military personnel and base workers
Friday, November 10, 2017 All military personnel, staff and base workers who may have been exposed to toxic firefighting foams should be provided with blood tests, Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon said today. “The Defence Department should offer free blood tests to all military personnel and base workers associated with HMAS Albatross, along HMAS Creswell and the Jervis Bay Range Facility,” Senator Rhiannon said. “These tests need to be provided now and not delayed until the environmental testing at Jervis Bay is completed in mid-2018.

Statement from new Greens Senator Andrew Bartlett
Friday, November 10, 2017 I am pleased that the hundreds of thousands of Queenslanders who voted for the Greens in the Senate once again have representation. I already have over ten years of experience as a Senator for Queenslanders, and I will be getting to work immediately. My job now is to help Queenslanders struggling to pay their rent and mortgages with flatlining wages, dealing with skyrocketing cost of living expenses and a lack of public infrastructure. For too long big corporations have profited off the backs of Queenslanders with the help of Labor and the LNP. This must end. The people of Queensland must come before corporate profit and political greed. I pay tribute to the work of my predecessor Larissa Waters and her courageous and ethical approach she took in resigning her seat as soon as she became aware of her dual citizenship. I appreciate the many messages of support and encouragement I have received from many members of the Greens, including Larissa. I feel very hon
Accommodation for other NDIS participants in jail must be found immediately  
Friday, November 10, 2017 The news that a young man with disability had been kept in jail because of a failure to find him appropriate accommodation is absolutely heartbreaking and exposes the failure of our systems to address this issue, Senator Rachel Siewert said today. “It’s another example of how far we have to go in getting the NDIS right and the urgency of addressing indefinite detention of people with cognitive impairments. It’s absolutely unacceptable to have situations like this occurring. “There are reports of four other people in this situation in Victoria and there are others across Australia. This situation has to be urgently remedied. It’s unacceptable. Most immediately there is a requirement for providers of last resort in all states and territories, the Federal Government should show leadership and ensure that states and territories are addressing this issue immediately.  "We need to address the issue that people with cognitive and psychiatric impair
