Paris Agreement, Poverty and Pipelines
We need to end our commitments under the United Nations (UN) Paris Agreement, ratified in 2016. The deepest cuts in carbon dioxide in the world, on a per person basis, is predicted to cause the Australian economy to start contracting in 2020. This contraction will mean widespread job losses, and a reduction in essential services like health and education. We recognise man-made ‘global warming’ is a widely held belief, but the predicted extremes of weather have not taken place despite the impression given by the media. We say that the economic and social harm of staying in the Paris Agreement cannot be justified on the evidence provided by the UN.
Australia’s immigration policy has seen 60% of population growth driven by immigration, but South Australia has not been a destination for new migrants. Who can blame migrants settling in other States, when in South Australia, good jobs are hard to find, electricity prices are the highest in Australia and the poverty rate is the highest in the country.
Poverty rates are much higher in outer metropolitan areas and the regional areas of South Australia, where nearly 18% of children live below the poverty line. It is not fair that these children and their families are suffering, because the federal government has decided our UN commitment to other countries come before them.
We want to reform multinational tax law and gas law, so that foreign owned multinational companies pay their fair share of operating costs in Australia. As it stands individuals pay 75% of all the income tax collected and most of the balance is paid by Australian owned and operated companies.
We will support the building of new dams and pipelines including a pipeline from Western Australia to Moomba in South Australia, which would bring jobs to South Australia and reduce cost of living pressures for households.
A vote for One Nation is a vote for democracy and our way of life and a defence against socialism of the kind proposed by Labor and the Greens.
My Personal Biography
I studied the climate sciences of meteorology, geology, and biology at the University of Melbourne and graduated with an Honours Degree in Science.
I was the first Registrar at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra and later the first Registrar at the National Maritime Museum located in Sydney.
Later I completed a tax law degree, while working full time and managing as a single parent. I worked for the ATO for nearly twenty years and then a small law firm.
My work in the ATO convinced me that we need to remove foreign owned multinationals and their Australian subsidiaries from the corporate tax system and place them in a new system based on observable transactions. This will make it harder for multinationals to avoid paying tax in Australia.
Early in 2017, I started working with Senator Pauline Hanson undertaking research and providing policy advice. This role has given me the opportunity to collaborate with Senator Hanson on the development of a number of her speeches and Private Senator’s legislation.
I believe Australians deserve certainty when making retirement plans and consequently oppose changes proposed by Labor to take away the benefits of owning Australian shares.
I believe in small government and lower taxes.
When I am not in the Parliament in Canberra, I work from home in Adelaide, because my family including three grandchildren live here.
