AUSTRALIANS FIRST EMPOWERING THE COMMONWEALTH PEOPLE NOT THE POLITICIANS
AUP – Australia United Platform refer to our policies as “proposed policy” to avoid and prevent misleading the Australian voting public as many in political circles do.
The key reason none of us are witnessing the results we expect to see in our country is due to the truth the fact none of the current individuals or parties “policy statement/promises” can in fact become policy unless the parties involved are elected into government by we the voting public and preferably they hold the majority of seats within the Federal Government House of Representatives (lower house) and one of the top two preferred party positions within the lower house would be the ideal position.
The lower house is where the main roles of the Federal Government are to make important national decisions, develop policy, introduce bills (proposed laws), implement laws and manage government departments on a day to day basis.
What we currently have is unconstitutional corrupt corporate government and policy wise is an insult to our forefathers who sacrificed their life for our country our freedoms our liberties. They would be turning over in their graves.
Any fellow Australian is encouraged and invited to contribute to our proposed policies so they are based upon your genuine concerns and any fellow Australian is welcome to request revision and updating of those policies to adequately reflect and address your genuine concerns constantly being ignored by the present day corrupt corporate government and many so called political parties..

THE AGE OF ENTITLEMENT IS DRAWING TO A CLOSE FOR POLITICIANS. (But not if Australian voters fail to stand and act)
LEGISLATION TO ADDRESS POLITICAL ENTITLEMENTS AND EXPENDITURE BURDENS UPON THE AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE.
The age of entitlements shall be over only when Australians have made the decision and choice it shall no longer be tolerated and over.
If Australia must have cost cutting measures as quite often many politicians have laid claim to publicly. Then cost cutting measures and tightening of belts must be met and applied by all and across the board including politicians and public alike. There is a legitimate requirement for a complete accurate transparent review of politician’s salaries, pensions etc to ensure they live up to and meet with the expectations of we the people.
- Scrap political pensions. Politicians can purchase their own retirement plan, just as most other working Australians are expected to do.
- Retired politicians (past, present & future) participate in Centrelink. A Politician collects a substantial salary while in office but should receive no salary when they’re out of office.
- Terminated politicians under 70 can go get a job or apply for Centrelink unemployment benefits like ordinary Australians. Terminated politicians over 70 can negotiate with Centrelink like the rest of the Australian people.
- Funds already allocated to the Politicians’ retirement fund be returned immediately to Consolidated Revenue. This money is to be used to pay down debt they created which they expect us and our grandchildren to repay for them.
- Politicians will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Politicians pay will rise by the lower of, either the CPI or 3%.
- Politicians lose their privileged health care system and participate in the same health care system as ordinary Australian people. i.e. Politicians either pay for private cover from their own funds or accept ordinary Medicare.
- Politicians must equally abide by all laws they impose on the Australian people.
- All contracts with past and present Politicians men/women are void effective immediately. The Australian people did not agree to provide perks to Politicians, that burden was thrust upon them.
- Review all politician’s entitlements.
- Review all politician’s salaries/wages and to be based upon the exact same principals as ordinary Australian wages to meet with a fairer manageable scale and level.
- Removal of funding for private/corporate flights for politicians, with the exception of the prime minister and emergencies.
- Complete review and update of political slush funds entitlements and expenditure.
- Removal of inappropriate abuse of accommodation allowances.
- Removal and abolishment of all AEC electoral funding payments to political parties.
- Removal of tax funded bar privileges for all politicians.
- Compulsory drug test for all politicians.
Serving in Parliament is an honour, not a career. Politicians devised all these benefits for themselves not the people. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so our politicians should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
Public acknowledgement to Dr. Dale Kerwin, School of Education, MT Gravatt Campus, Griffith University for contribution to this proposed policy.
PUBLIC funding of the last elections means big bucks for smaller parties, according to figures released today.
Pauline Hanson’s One Nation will receive $1.6 million in public campaign assistance and maverick senator Nick Xenophon’s team $1.18 million. They are well behind the Liberals, set to receive $22.5 million, and the ALP who will get $22.35 million.
But well above the Sex Party and the Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP) Party set to get $6311.79 each. www.news.com.au/national/politics/aec-authorises-first-payments-of-election-funding-including-one-nation/news-story/7d43e6292810039a05f7c81eaec4a2db
