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 ...

Coalition's university cuts start biting - La Trobe to sack 15% of its workforce
Australian Greens spokesperson for higher education Senator Lee Rhiannon, has called on Education Minister Christopher Pyne to scrap his plans to deregulate the university sector following announcements of huge staff and course cuts at La Trobe University. "Funding cuts under both Labor and Coalition governments have bled universities dry," Senator Rhiannon said. "The $65 million cuts announced at La Trobe will see 350 staff fired and the existing five faculties merged into two colleges. "These funding cuts coupled with Mr Pyne's attempt to deregulate the sector will have devastating effects on smaller and regional universities. "Deregulation is opposed by students, staff and a number of university Vice-Chancellors. It should be scrapped. "What we are seeing at La Trobe is likely to be the beginning of a huge overhaul to the higher education sector which is going to create a more unequal, elitist education system. "As we have seen in the VET sector, deregulation and forced competit
Low returns for Tasmania’s big mining subsidies
A new report out today shows Tasmania is spending $17 million to prop up mining and minerals processing industries, even though low global prices are rendering some mines unviable, said Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne. "The Australia Institute report shows that for the $17 million in corporate welfare to the miners from the Tasmanian government on roads and other subsidies, we got back just $49 million in royalties," Senator Milne said. "The government recently gave Shree Minerals a royalty holiday for its Nelson River mine but the same mine, with its handful of jobs, has halted production due to low iron ore prices. "We are now left with a scar marring the Tarkine, $14 million spent on west coast roads over the past four years, and no knowledge of when, or if, the mine will ever re-start or whether there is enough money to rehabilitate the area. "Over the past four years the government has spent $54 million on mining and processing subsidies which equates to about 116 te
Racial profiling and the issue of alcohol in Central Australia
28/05/2014 The Northern Territory Intervention did untold damage by labelling all Aboriginal people in the 73 ‘prescribed communities’ in the NT as alcoholics and child abusers, and the huge blue and white signs erected at the entrance to each of the living areas stating “No Liquor No Pornography” emphasised this stigma. Most of the communities and some of the town camps had been ‘dry’ areas through community initiative and consensus decision-making prior to 2007.  The repressive NTER (Intervention) laws (compulsory leasing of land, undermining of organisations and local autonomy with the imposition of statutory regulations and government business managers, income management controlling how and where people could spend their social security entitlements) was compounded by the NT Government abolishing community councils and introducing a shire system of local government which crossed tribal boundaries and saw a huge increase in the exodus of people from communities to t
