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 ...

WestConnex Rozelle Tunnel plan shifting the road chaos
Thursday, July 21, 2016Today's confirmation of an additional one kilometre of tunnel under Victoria Road, Rozelle shows how planning for WestConnex is a shambles, says Greens Member for Balmain, Jamie Parker. "This add on tunnel announcement is nothing more than a half-baked response to the traffic chaos that will occur around the ANZAC bridge," he said. "The RMS knows from the traffic modelling that they commissioned for the M4 East, that that the impact on Victoria Road and the ANZAC Bridge would be gridlock with or without the proposed Rozelle Interchange.
Qld Labor must release reported bid for federal funding of Adani coal railway to devastate the Reef
Friday, July 22, 2016The Greens are calling on the Palaszczuk Government to release its reported funding application to the federal Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility to pay for Adani's railway line. "Instead of being miles better for the Reef as promised, Labor appears to be seeking taxpayer funding for miles of railway line to export coal through the Reef," Senator Larissa Waters, Australian Greens climate change spokesperson, said. "The Labor state Government looks set to buddy up with the Liberal federal Government to waste taxpayer money on a railway line for Adani to send millions of tonnes of coal through the Reef to further cook its coral. "Without taxpayer-funding, this mega coal mine does not stack up financially and more than a dozen banks have ruled out providing finance. "Kicking in taxpayer money to get this white elephant over the line makes no sense economically or environmentally. "Instead of wasting taxpayer money in the dying coal industry, where workers are

Ban Greyhound Racing in WA
Friday, July 22, 2016Lynn and the Greens believe that humans have a responsibility to minimise any suffering of animals caused by human activities, and to maximise their quality of life. Greyhound racing is a sport that is completely at odds with this belief. Lynn is calling on the State Government to ban greyhound racing in WA following the decision of the NSW premier to ban the industry there in response to a Special Commission of Inquiry report. The inquiry uncovered the ghastly truth about greyhound racing: mass ‘wastage’ (a polite term for the euthanasia of tens of thousands of greyhounds), horrific track injuries resulting in euthanasia and other cruel practices were found to be systemic. The ACT premier was quick to follow the lead of NSW and are also banning greyhound racing. In WA while some details are shrouded in secrecy the Minister for Racing and Gaming has admitted that at least 800 dogs were euthanised in the past two years. We must act now.
