Minister, get out of your ivory tower and speak to people actually struggling on Centrelink
Minister Alan Tudge refusing to suspend or scrap the automated debt recovery system demonstrates a huge failing to comprehend the struggles and distress that the program has caused to people accessing the social safety net, Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert said today. “The Coalition is scrambling around trying to work out why voters are so disillusioned and sick of major parties, well they only have to look at the huge disconnect demonstrated by Minister Tudge today. “Rather than empathise and listen with open ears about the overwhelming failures of the debt recovery system and the Centrelink system at large, Minister Tudge put his hands over his ears and continued to spruik a damaging system that has well and truly flat lined. “Has the Minister no comprehension of how broken Centrelink is or is he choosing to ignore it? For him to defend wait times by referring to the average wait time of 12 minutes to get through to Centrelink on the phone is farcical. “Thousands of p











Government automated debt recovery system must be scrapped and should be referred to Senate inquiry: Greens
The Australian Greens are calling for the Government’s automated debt recovery system to be scrapped and investigated through a senate inquiry.   Australian Greens spokesperson on community services Senator Rachel Siewert said: “Prior to and over Christmas, the automated debt recovery system caused anguish and stress to people using our social safety net, impacting on the mental health of those that we should be supporting. “These demands from Centrelink are deeply distressing and my office has heard from many people about their experiences of receiving a notification that they were thousands of dollars in debt and would need records from many years ago to dispute this. “Just before Christmas I wrote to the Minister for Human Services Alan Tudge asking for him to explain the debacle and suspend the program. Since then it has become clear that the program has caused too many issues to remain viable, subsequently the view of the Australian Greens is that the automated debt recov











California recognises the “swampy” world of kangaroo politics – species at risk
MEDIA RELEASE11 January 2017 California recognises the “swampy” world of kangaroo politics – species at risk The Californian government’s Fair Political Practices Commission has warned the Australian government to stop their underhand tactics to restart the trade in kangaroo products into California, Greens animal welfare spokesperson Senator Lee Rhiannon said.  The warning letter was issued after an investigation confirmed the Australian government violated California’s lobbying laws with undeclared payments made to influence the Californian legislative process. Californian daily newspaper, the Sacramento Bee, has described the events as ‘unsavoury foreign government interference and industry money to influence with local government decision-making’. They labelled the world of kangaroo lobbying as ‘swampy’. “This should be a major embarrassment for the Australian government. They have been caught out misusing public money to try and influence Californian legislato











Leyonhjelm, Hanson childcare comments rule them out of reasonable debate
Senators David Leyonhjelm and Pauline Hanson have shown that they’re not up to taking part in a constructive discussion around reforming Australia’s childcare sector with ill-informed comments equating early childhood education with ‘wiping noses’, the Australian Greens have said. “Senator Leyonhjelm clearly has no understanding of the early childhood education sector or the needs of Australian parents,” the Greens’ education spokesperson, Senator Hanson-Young said. “Senator Leyonhjelm has a painfully simplistic view of the universe; childcare means wiping kids’ noses and being a politician means ignoring the evidence when talking about education, climate change and gun control. “It’s no surprise that his comments have been endorsed by that authority on all things mindless and inane, Pauline Hanson. “With childcare fees sky-rocketing under the Turnbull Government, we need genuine reform and an injection of funds to the sector, not ill-informed comments from frin
