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 ...

Australian Greens Move to Scrap ‘Extreme’ Anti-Terrorism Law

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 ...

Green groups plea on climate

Environmentalists have issued a last-gasp plea to the federal government not to cop out on climate change.The government will announce its crucial 2020 target for greenhouse gas reductions on December 15.There is mounting speculation the government will opt for a relatively modest cut of five to 15 per cent.More than 50 green groups have penned an open letter to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd urging him to slash emissions by up to 40 per cent, for the planet''s sake."We urge you to stand up to the pressure from the big polluters and adopt a strong emissions reduction target that will keep alive the ...

Australian Greens will oppose welfare reform bill packed with measures that will make life worse for struggling Australians
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 The welfare reform bill that contains a suite of measures that hurt people with disability, bereaved pregnant women, people struggling with addiction and older unemployed Australians amongst others will be opposed by the Australian Greens. “The welfare reform bill is a mishmash of measures designed to once again erode the social safety net, making it increasingly less accessible and more paternalistic whilst insidiously reducing some payments. “The most well-known measure contained in the bill is the plan to drug test 5000 income support recipients, but there are cuts and changes beyond that.  “The drug testing trial is going to make circumstances worse for people struggling with addiction attempting to access supports. During the inquiry into the Bill we were told extremely clearly by medical professionals and social services providers that the drug testing income support recipients is flawed.  “The Minister has disregarded this evidence
More social services legislation that targets the elderly, migrants and the unemployed
Thursday, September 7, 2017 The Payment Integrity Bill is another attempt by the Government to go after vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community, this time older Australians, migrants, people with a disability, jobseekers and students, Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert said today.  “Those that have lived in Australia periodically throughout their life may be affected by the changes. Some older Australians may now have to wait until they are 80 to access the aged pension because of the increased residency requirements.  It is ridiculous that migrants now need at least ten years of continuous residency, five of which the claimant must have worked rather than been in receipt of an activity-tested income support payment.  “Older migrants are already a vulnerable cohort, they may have lower superannuation because of barriers like discriminatory hiring practices or not having their overseas qualifications recognised. Why punish them for seeking help in the
Greens amendment calling for mandatory vehicle emissions and encouraging uptake of electric vehicles passes Senate
Monday, September 11, 2017 The Greens have today successfully amended the Government’s Liquid Fuel Emergency Bill to call on the Government to reduce Australia’s oil consumption. Part of Australia’s international obligations under the International Energy Agency is to ensure we have 90 days worth of liquid fuel stocks. Australia has not met this obligation for over half a decade. The Greens support bringing Australia back into international compliance, but have further called for the Government to reduce Australia’s dependence on oil imports by reducing the reliance of the Australian transport sector on oil. “Instead of continuing our reliance on fossil fuel imports to run this country, we should be urgently shifting to clean renewable fuels” said Senator Janet Rice. “Reducing our reliance for liquid fuels will come in two ways – we have to move people and products around in more efficient ways, and we can replace polluting fossil fuels with renewables.” “Th
WA Budget fails to deliver certainty over future of NDIS
Friday, September 8, 2017 The Greens have today criticised the government for failing to provide certainty over the future of the NDIS in Western Australia, following the release of the State Budget yesterday. Spokesperson for Disability Hon. Alison Xamon MLC said there was a high level of expectation in the community that the budget would have given some indication of the Government’s intention for the scheme. “For a while now the Government has been indicating to the disability community that clarity around the future of the NDIS within WA would come around the budget. The budget is here now, and that clarity has not arrived,” Ms Xamon said. She said the government risked losing faith with stakeholders as it continued to fail to provide certainty about the future of the NDIS. “In addition there was an expectation within the sector that the government might fund some systemic advocacy in order to facilitate the NDIS transition but that doesn’t seem to have happened either,
