Finance leaders exposed - no ethics, no heart, no competence

BRN and the merry bank warriors came to Sydney for Round 7 of the Hayne Banking Royal Commission. CBA, Westpac and ASIC were in the dock. QC Rowena Orr stripped the Emperors of finance bare. It was painful. How do these characters even think they deserve to be paid multi million dollar salaries?

Scandals, incompetence, chicanery, greed, deception all laid out forensically by the brilliant Counsel Assisting Rowena Orr. There is a cancer in our finance sector and it is killing our country. We need people like Ms Orr to cut it out. We cannot be free until the disease is cured. The Royal Commission needs to be longer and stronger. There are other players in the sector - including ex-CEOs - that require Ms Orr's healing touch and attention.

Australia's Big Four Bank CEOs Annual Review in October &
Round 7 Royal Commission appearance in November ... it's boom time!

The House of Representatives Economics Committee will have to ask some tough questions now that the Hayne financial services Royal Commission has exposed some shocking abuses by the banks. And still .... it's just the tip of the iceberg.

The next Big Four Banks review dates are 11th, 12th and 19th of October. The public is welcome and BRN wants you to help make sure the committee members know what you want them to do. Ask the hard questions - hold the CEOs to account and see to it that the Royal Commission will be extended. These review meetings set the scene for the CEOs appearance at Round Seven of the Royal Commission. Justice will be done - if people join in now.

Don't Hold Back - It's Time For Action & YOU Are Needed

Bank warriors and concerned citizens. Right now is the time to unite with a single, powerful voice. The next few weeks are critical if we want to see an extended and more powerful Banking Royal Commission. Bank Reform Now is asking YOU to help wake the "Sleeping Giant" - our friends and families - the wonderful people of Australia.

There are a few simple things that anyone can do to support this campaign. It is essential that as many of you as possible join in right now. We are winning.

A corrupt political system is holding us back

Trigger Warning - Harsh truth content ahead. Lies and other forms of propaganda aim to hide the shocking truth .... we are all being fleeced by a system that serves the elite. Our major parties work in the interests of the elite ... not voters and citizens. Election 2019 is when we can reset the system. Will you help?

Banking Victims meet with NAB's CEO Thorburn at Parliamentary Hearings

Mr Andrew Thorburn (NAB Bank CEO) made some very significant comments at his appearance in front of the House Economics Committee at the annual Big4 Banks review. Bank Reform Now provide some critical excerpts in this article. First, there are four cases the MPs were very concerned about seeing investigated and satisfactorily resolved - Rita Troiani (Wide Bay Bricks), Faye Andrews, Bill Mott and the Furneaux case.

Next, we have some important highlights. It is good to see that Mr Thorburn is committed to giving bank victims full and open access to essential files, documents and other evidence. We are also pleased that he wants to be held personally accountable!

BRN Advisory Panel Member Michael Sanderson Makes The Case Loud & Clear

Angry victims of financial misconduct are calling for a bank-funded legal aid service as they struggle to match the legal power of the big banks. Michael Sanderson has campaigned with great tenacity and determination. He met with and contacted a huge number of politicians in Canberra to show them that effective legal aid was not only doable .... it is essential. Journalist Eryk Bagshaw recognised a good idea when he heard it. Many politicians have also heard the call. At the October meeting in Canberra the bank CEOs will also hear about that and other elements of justice heading their way.

Have our politicians got the guts & decency to tear down a criminal finance system?

In the ten years since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) - have governments done enough to reform the system? The horrific succession of scandals since then suggests not. Is the next GFC on its way?

Only by the Australian people uniting and demanding real reforms will we get the job done. Banking is organised crime on a grand scale. The finance sector has rigged the game so that they extract a disproportionate amount of Australia's wealth. It's time to bring it back.

Bank Reform Now (BRN Australia) Campaign Steaming Ahead

Bank Reform Now (BRN) and our friends have been working towards a powerful Banking Royal Commission in Australia for over 5 years. For decades both major Australian Political parties ignored calls for a proper investigation into bank misconduct. The banks continued ripping off clients and thanks to government and regulatory inaction avoided serious reforms and payment of proper compensation to bank victims.

We all have pressed on regardless because we knew this was a battle that had to be won. Public & political pressure grew and eventually, in late 2017 the banks got in first and authorised Turnbull to put up their Royal Commission on their terms. Turnbull always opposed us... now he is gone. What now?

Will Hayne ask for more power and time? We think he should ... here's why.

While the Hayne Royal Commission into banking and finance has uncovered some shocking misconduct it really has just scratched the surface.  BRN wants a longer and stronger inquiry. Leon Ashby lists some critical areas that still require thorough investigation.

Time to elect pollies that represent us

The time has come. A fact's a fact. The system's corrupt. It's time to act. The 2019 election might be our last chance to rescue our democracy, country and way of life. It is now very clear that politics is a circus designed to distract us from important issues. BRN will put the unmentionable issue on the agenda and encourage you to demand important structural reforms. Any politician that wants to be elected will know they must begin serving the people ... not the elite.
