I probably wouldn’t support the sacking of Barnaby Joyce as much worse things go on among politicians. While our parliament becomes a laughing stock once again, Australians are battling for a fair go in relation to banks, superannuation funds, electricity suppliers and a plethora of other businesses operating on a corporate model. I am looking for leadership to reverse deregulation and make corporate enterprises accountable.

The current ridiculous petty bickering will ensure a return to Labor government at the next election, but I wish the voting public would vote for somebody else, preferably someone with a reasonable set of values who is actually interested in Australia and Australians.

Amidst this Barnaby farce our senate passed Bail In laws that enable the banks to convert our deposits into their shares when trouble ensues. One Nation put forth an amendment of excluding deposits but they rushed it through with no such amendment. Our banks are in trouble because our over inflated property market will collapse.Who created this problem with record low rates and slack lending policies ? The crisis of 2008 was not resolved. They just made it many times worse.
