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 ...

Labor Government promises more pokies harm
Friday, July 7, 2017 Victoria's Labor government today guaranteed 25 years more pokies harm, promising not to remove a single machine before 2042. “Pokies rip billions of dollars from Victorian communities each year, and Labor is now locking in this crisis for another three decades,” said Colleen Hartland, Victorian Greens spokesperson for Gambling.   “Labor is addicted to the tax revenue from these machines, and time and time again it’s the poorest communities that get hit the hardest.” “Gambling addiction leads to crime, family breakdown and job loss. Money that goes into pokies is money that isn’t being spent in local businesses and on essentials for the family. That’s the last thing we want.” “The Gambling Minister’s own electorate of Kororoit is the worst area in Victoria for pokies losses. She’s putting profits before her own people. She won’t even stand up for her own community,” she said. The Greens suite of measures to reduce gambling harm includ
Community and tourists don’t want a mega-casino on the Gold Coast
Friday, July 7, 2017 News that Caesars Entertainment who own more than 50 casinos across the world including Caesars Palace in Las Vegas has held talks with the backers of the proposed Spit mega-casino spit provoked a bewildering response from our Premier say the Australian Greens.  "Annastacia Palaszczuk says she doesn’t want the Gold Coast to become a “casino city”," says Deputy Leader and spokesperson for gambling, Larissa Waters.  "So why is her government proposing to destroy publicly owned green space for yet another casino? "70 percent of Gold Coast residents don’t want the mega-casino proposed for the Spit. "But the State Labor government isn’t listening, no surprise seeing as they’ve happily taken tens of thousands of dollars from the Chinese consortium behind the Spit mega-casino and their business partners. "The community doesn't want this mega-casino, and tourists won’t come to visit it. "Research from Tourism Australia shows they come to places lik
Nuclear weapons: immoral, illegitimate, illegal
Saturday, July 8, 2017 The United Nations has voted overwhelmingly to adopt a treaty banning the use and threat of use of nuclear weapons. The final vote of 122 to 1, with 1 abstention, leaves no doubt as to the scale of the global movement for abolition. “Today the world stood up to the nine nuclear weapons states and their proxies, and moved to put nuclear weapons on the same legal footing as chemical and biological weapons,” said Australian Greens Senator Scott Ludlam. “At a time of rising nuclear tensions, this is an overwhelmingly positive initiative and one that the Abbott/Turnbull Government should have strongly supported. Instead, they were missing when the rest of the world was showing leadership. “If the existing nuclear weapons cartel are serious about keeping North Korea out of their club, the negotiating leverage they are looking for is right here at the United Nations. The election of Donald Trump has blown away any illusions that existing nuclear weapo
SA hits the jackpot on Tesla deal, time for Turnbull to show his hand
Friday, July 7, 2017 The Australian Greens have welcomed the State Government and Elon Musk’s announcement that a deal to build the world’s largest battery in South Australia will go ahead. “When Elon Musk laid down the gauntlet to install battery storage in South Australia in 100 days, or it was free, the Greens urged the State Government to double down on this exciting wager,” Senator for South Australia Sarah Hanson-Young said. “This has thrust South Australia into the future, as well as putting us on the world map as the home of the largest battery in the world. But now it’s time for Malcolm Turnbull to fix the energy market rules to make the most of this amazing hand we’ve been dealt. “The ball is now in the Prime Minister’s court – he has the power to fix the market so it can't keep being gamed by the big old power companies who've been screwing SA for too long. This is a win for householders because power prices will be forced down, not to mention a w
