ONE NATION PUTS BANKING CODE UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT

One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts has officially launched the campaign to prevent a watering down of the Banking Code of Practice.

Speaking at the Financial Services Council 2019 Summit, Senator Roberts announced that One Nation will vote to disallow the ‘2019 Code of Banking Practice’, introduced by the Morrison Government in July.

This move would ensure that the Banking Code of Practice is not watered down further, but One Nation has gone further and called for stronger terms to be included in any future banking code.

One notable example of how the 2019 Code weakens scrutiny of the banks is the removal of the requirement for banks to be ‘honest’ and instead uses the word ‘compassionate’.

I’m sure we could all agree that demanding that banks act honestly should be a minimum requirement.

Since re-entering the Senate in 2016, One Nation has fought tirelessly for major reforms and greater accountably of the banking sector.

From spearheading the Senate Inquiry into Rural Banking, the major precursor to the Banking Royal Commission, to now One Nation has never let up in its struggle to hold the banks to account for their poor treatment of many Australians.

One Nation will be seeking the support of all other parties to ensure that the current weak regulations are scrapped, and then replaced with significantly stronger regulations.

A detailed media release about how One Nation will continue to hold the banking industry account has been released by Senator Roberts and is available to read on his social media.

On a lighter note, Senator Roberts was also named the 45th most influential Climate Change Politician by Nature magazine!

While it is likely that the authors at Nature Magazine did not intend this as a compliment the list is chock-a-block with so many of the world’s leading opponents of the Climate Change Con that it really must be considered a great honour.

I have a feeling a framed copy of that edition of Nature Magazine will be heading straight to Senator Roberts’ pool room.

And who knows, with all the hard work he has been up too since his re-election, next year he might crack the top ten.

PAULINE HANSON’S PLAN TO KEEP AYERS ROCK OPEN

Unless you were living under a rock you couldn’t have missed Senator Hanson climb the rock but with the media being what it is, you might not have gotten the full story.

Following the much publicised trip to the rock, Senator Hanson released a detailed statement outlining not just how and why she believed the rock should remain open for all Australians, but a number of other issues that were brought to her attention by the local community that the other parties have ignored.

For instance, the six Anangu Mayatja Council Elders that Senator Hanson spoke with explained that they do not accept the Uluru Statement from the Heart, describing it as a “rag” that does not speak for their people.

Furthermore, there are issues around aboriginal academics and activists speaking on behalf of the community and misrepresenting their desires.

Not to mention the danger that, with the closure of the climb and a potential drop off in tourism numbers, the hundreds of millions of dollars loaned for the purchase of the Ayers Rock Resort might never be repaid.

You can read the entire statement online at www.senatorhanson.com.au, this is also a great resource for keeping up to date with all media releases coming out of the Senator office.

And for those of you who didn’t catch the coverage on A Current Affair, you can see the entire segment on Senator Hanson’s Facebook page.

Pauline Hanson climbs the Rock

If you missed A Current Affair tonight, here's the story of my visit to the Rock and my talks with the Anangu Mayatja Council of Elders about jobs, the parliaments push to accept the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the imminent closure of the Rock climb.If you want to vote on the poll ACA are conducting, click on their facebook link above.** Just for the record, Tjimpuna Ruby has asked that I correct one point of tonight's story. She has said that she never wanted to keep the climb open for the purpose of jobs. **#Auspol #OneNation #PaulineHanson #Uluru #ACA #ACurrentAffair

One Nation defies polls, celebrates return to form

Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party was celebrating a return to form as the party defied polls pointing to declining support and emerged from the election with a chance of increased Senate representation.

While One Nation had not secured any lower house seats at last count, the party commanded impressive support of between 13 and 22 percent in Queensland electorates such as Dawson, Capricornia, Flynn, Blair, Maranoa, Hinkler, Wright, Longman, Groom and the seats of Hunter and Paterson in New South Wales.

With the count in the House of Representatives still continuing Monday, One Nation had notched 3% of the national vote. This represents a more than doubling of One Nation’s vote in the 2016 Federal Election (1.29%) which saw the party burst back onto the political scene.

Although commentators highlight that Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party achieved a similar figure by standing 151 candidates across the country, this comparison doesn’t account for the fact that One Nation stood candidates in only 59 of the 151 House of Representatives divisions.

As of late Monday with 75% of the vote counted, One Nation had achieved an average 7.8% of the vote in areas it stood candidates.

Counting for the Senate is expected to continue for a number of weeks. The party’s best chance at increased representation is Malcolm Roberts for Queensland Senate who sits on 9.8% of the vote with just over 40% of Senate ballot papers counted. This places the party in a very strong position but fighting a scattered field of preference flows to achieve the 14.3% needed to secure Mr. Roberts’ return to Parliament.

New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia Senate races continue with One Nation in smaller primary positions and having to rely on very large preference flows in the coming weeks’ counting to secure more seats.

The hope of increased One Nation Senate representation comes even in spite of a much harder, non-double dissolution election.

This year’s half-Senate election (where the quota for a Senate position has increased from 7.7%(2016) to 14.3%(2019)) has wiped out minor parties such as Fraser Anning’s Conservative Nationals, United Australia Party and Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party. Cory Bernardi’s Australian Conservative’s have been unable to secure additional Senate positions.

Only time will tell the exact results in the Senate and while the party won’t be, “doing a Bill Shorten,” and counting its chickens before they hatch, it thanks all of its supporters, candidates and tireless volunteers that have helped increase the vote across the country in a resounding success.

The result shows Pauline Hanson’s One Nation is here to stay as a driving force in Australia politics and getting the country back on track.

Any party's how to vote card is only a recommendation.Don't buy into the big party lies and confusion.

The Truth About One Nation Preferences

Not many people know how preferences work and believe if they vote 1 for One Nation, the party will decide where that vote goes if the candidate isn’t elected. Preferences are unavoidable because voters must number every box on a ballot paper, but the political parties cannot dictate where your vote goes.

THE MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE IS – YOU OWN YOUR OWN PREFERENCES.

Share this post with as many people as you can to ensure they understand that political parties don’t own the preferences. How to vote cards are only a recommendation, your vote will only go where you mark your numbers on the ballot paper.

While many people don’t realise they own their preferences, we believe preferences should be abolished altogether.

What do you think about preference voting? Did you know you owned your preferences and not the political party? Do you agree with One Nation’s plan to abolish preferences?

Major Parties snuggle up to Chinese Communist Party Donor

Will Scott Morrison now place LABOR LAST on their how-to-vote cards after Labor’s close connection to the Chinese Communist Party associated donor, Huang Xiangmo?

Why would the Liberals want Labor to have their preferences in the first place?

Pauline Hanson’s Election promise

With an election now called for May 18, Pauline Hanson is suggesting voters take out insurance by voting for One Nation, the only party promising to hold the major parties to account.

Senator Hanson said, “This country has been crying out for a solution to drought and I have given my commitment to the people of Australia that if One Nation continues to hold the balance of power after this election, we will build the hybrid Bradfield Water Scheme and drought-proof much of the country, while solving the issue of water for the Murray Darling.”

The One Nation party have shared the balance-of-power for the past term of parliament, ensuring legislation was judged on merit and not sleazy backroom deals.

Senator Hanson said, “I’ve kept an open door policy with all sides of politics these past few years and, despite who puts legislation forward, I’ve always taken the time to judge it on the basis of whether it is right for the people of this country or not.”

The One Nation leader took a principled stance on rejecting the coalitions tax cuts for larger businesses with turnovers exceeding annual earnings of $50 million, yet supported tax cuts for smaller family businesses and workers across the country.

“One Nation has ensured the Morrison Government maintained a strong economy by rejecting their wasteful $45 billion dollar handout for banks, multinationals, and businesses that don’t pay their fair share of tax in this country,” Senator Hanson said.

“It’s One Nation who started the debate over issues the major parties refuse to speak about. Issues like immigration, foreign ownership, water, electricity prices, climate change, safe schools, and political correctness. If we weren’t there to give both sides of politics a clip under the ear from time to time, the country would be a broke basket case.”

One Nation uncovered the misconduct of our banks in a parliamentary inquiry into the lending practices to farmers, chaired by Queensland senate frontrunner Malcolm Roberts. That inquiry very quickly led to the Banking Royal Commission.

“We have achieved so many outcomes for Australian’s across this country. We have dealt with thousands of little issues that people are just so grateful to have resolved, but also had significant wins including the 1600 apprenticeship positions for regional Australia,” Senator Hanson said

“One Nation saved the sugar industry with a code of conduct, kept the Moora College in WA open, helped secure over $200 million for a much needed water pipeline to prevent Townsville going dry again, achieved a $8.9 million emergency centre for Ipswich, obtained $5 million for the driver training facility in North Queensland and stopped farmers having forced buyouts of their land for the sake of the Singapore Army.”

“The people of Australia are tired of the two major parties not listening to their needs and instead only looking after big business and party donors.”

One Nation has also successfully shared the balance-of-power in the Western Australian state parliament with two other minor parties.

“The Labor Premier of Western Australia and Coalition Prime Minister have both acknowledged they’ve had a good working relationship with One Nation and have continued to achieve positive outcomes for the country,” Senator Hanson said.

“There’s not a great deal of common sense left in politics these days, so I’m pleased to see One Nation keeping a finger on the pulse and standing up for the issues that matter to everyday Australians.

One Nation will run candidates in both Senate and Lower House seats across the country with Senator Hanson warning both major parties to expect her in towns they refuse to visit.

It’s Our Moral Duty to Redirect the Foreign Aid Budget

Australia spends around $4 billion a year on foreign aid. While activists like the greens say that Australian taxes are well spent overseas, the reality is Australians deserve this assistance first.

Supporters of foreign aid say that it is money that is better spent in poorer countries compared to being spent in Australia. However, voters don’t need to look far to see examples of foreign aid being sent to under-developed countries only to be rorted by their governments.

What overseas governments do with their money should make Australians question if they really need our aid. Corruption, questionable government purchases and lacking transparency of some organisations that receive aid means Australian aid doesn’t even make it to the people it was meant for.

In early 2018, Indonesia took delivery of 8 Apache attack helicopters. In the 2017/18 year, Australia delivered over $350 million in aid to Indonesia. The cost of the attack helicopters? Over $400 million.

Australia sends $550 million each year to Papua New Guinea. In late 2018, it was discovered that the PNG Government would be buying 40 Maserati cars to cater for delegates to their upcoming APEC summit.

Not deterred by worldwide backlash to this, a week later the PNG Government added three Bentley limousines to their fleet, worth over $320,000 each. This revelation came at the same time it was revealed Australia was providing an extra $130 million in additional aid just to help PNG host APEC.

Whenever Australian taxes are being sent overseas, someone will be abusing Australia’s generosity.

Even if every dollar of the foreign aid budget made it to the people it was intended, Australians have always believed charity starts at home.

While $4 billion a year wouldn’t fix all of Australia’s problems, it could certainly help pensioners, returned service personnel and the estimated 116,000 homeless across our country. These are the people, Australians, that the government needs to look after first.

Australia is also a country that is constantly rocked by natural disasters. Only earlier in 2019, North Queensland was suffering some of the worst floods in decades, New South Wales was in 100% drought and Tasmania suffered through historically catastrophic bushfires, all at the same time.

Don’t Australians affected by disasters deserve all the assistance the government can give over sending aid overseas?

The latest costing on the Bradfield Scheme to drought proof huge areas of inland Australia by capturing floodwater from North Queensland, which One Nation is committed to, would be covered with just two years of diverted foreign aid funding.

The flow on effects of a nation building project such as this are almost incalculable. Water is the most essential resource to functioning a country and the country could be building it. Instead, politicians feel that money is better sent overseas.

As Australians it is our duty to look after our own backyard before trying to fix the world. This is why politicians must commit to redirecting our foreign aid budget to Australians first.
