Extend the Royal Commission

Extend the Royal Commission | Question Time

I wrote to the Prime Minister on 23 July 2018 with a request to extend the time and terms of reference of the Royal Commission into the Banks to include receivers, managers and liquidators. The Prime Minister’s response was that the Royal Commission is independent from government and the manner in which the royal commissioner operates is a matter for the commissioner…pretty weak stuff.So today I demanded to know why the Government was refusing to show leadership, take responsibility and do everything in its power to expand the Banking Royal Commission and why only four farmers have been granted the opportunity to speak before the commission.What did you make of the Government's response?

What did you make of the Government’s response?

    Would our leader like to add a call for insurance companies be added to the Royal Commission for the banks also carry that product. It seems that collusion between companies is the norm as they all know every customers details who they insure with and their premium costs.

    Good on you Pauline, the only Aussie there…I know questions have to be submitted before sittings, but the most disappointing thing I see, is no reaction from a solitary Polly in the house………They should have been up on their feet clapping your inquireie, and enforcing an understandable reply……..I note a knowing smile between the two leaders Wong and Maithias…….

    One thing is , that both sides of the politic are only responding to the ” requirements ” of the foreign powers who undirectly control us & will do NOTHING to escape this as they are under ORDERS !!! Farmers , people are only a mere little fry to be used & disposed of at will ! Ask yourself why this country like all the western one are in DEFICIT ? Simply to force us to borrow more from the same overseas sources , & by doing so , we are under control & obligations . The polies sold us . Simple as this & now have to almost sell the country to get us out of troubles /

    The biggest criminals were Bankwests valuers that purposefully and grossly undervalued commercial properties where loans were then placed in default of their loan facilities Engineering defaults where customers were then placed into administration or firesales of their assets and properties that were not late in re payments following gfc from 2009-2015 Ide like to see valuers go straight to jail and the Bankers follow them. THIS IS AUSTRALIAS BIGGEST FINANCIAL FRAUD.

    On the 23rd of July the PM was Mr Malcolm Turnbull. Is it appropriate to put the same question to the current PM? I would also like to put this question to the leader of the opposition.
