Bank Licences To Operate Now On The Line

When BRN first formed one of our first claims was that banking was "organised crime on a grand scale." This article is so perfect it is a must read. Banks really are run and organised by lawbreaking supervillains. We need powerful superheroes to bring them to justice. Apart from all the activists, whistleblowers and journalists that are doing a great job exposing crimes - the regulators have now been embarrassed into action after decades of the light touch "see no evil" approach.

Yes - a bank's licence to operate should be on the line for criminal breaches and serious misconduct. BRN's SUMIR program has called for a  Sovereign Monetary system that functions in the interests of the country and its people. Other countries of the world will need to do the same. Australia is now positioned to set the example and do this. A National Bank is a big stepping stone. Westpac cannot afford the fines it will incur from the latest scandal.

Scott Morrison has made it clear he wants to crackdown on criminal transactions. Unfortunately his target was dead wrong. Ordinary citizens are the target of his Cash Ban Bill. How dare Morrison and his government force us to be at the  mercy of these criminal organisations! The real targets should be the bankers and other white collar criminals that snub their noses at the law .... and use electronic transactions to do it. Will Morrison use Westpac or another big bank to establish our National Bank?

Economist Richard Denniss says - "The scrutiny of the big four should not stop until their staggering, systemic breaches of the law do." We agree.

T-Shirt Threatens The System. Parliament Security Cracks Down.

BRN CEO threatened with eviction from Parliament House .... for wearing a T-Shirt. Is this what has become of Australia? Have we forgotten about cherished rights and freedoms? Will the Speaker of the House Tony Smith adjust the rules regarding protest? If people can't protest peacefully what are their alternatives?

While NAB's CEO Phil Chronican was in the dock at the House Economics Committee someone complained about a T-Shirt. This is what happened next ....

Banks Feel People Power When They Face Tough Questions At AGMs

How do you reform the banks? You go behind enemy lines and attack head on with our most powerful weapon .... THE TRUTH..!! You present evidence, logic and facts. By working hard and smart you might just become unbeatable. The truth always wins in the end .... unfortunately for too many people it has taken way too long. The bank warrior AGM campaign is growing stronger and continues this year. Here is the 2019 schedule. After the events we will also add links to Video Highlights. Check the People Power - Bank AGMs - Round 1 link to see what was achieved last year.

Government assists banks with a phony code of practice

The Australian Banking Association released its new Code of Banking Practice on the 1st of July. This letter was to be sent to Treasurer Frydenberg a few days later but we decided to hang onto it while we monitored ASIC, Treasury and the banks. We have now sent this to the Treasurer and publish it here today because very soon the Senate will vote on a motion to disallow the new Code. Every Senator must vote to axe the code ..... here's why.......

Australia Needs Honest Banking & Politics - Time To Take Action

The finance sector has been shown to be operating in a way that harms customers and citizens in general. Criminals within the system have been allowed to profit from horrific abuses by not only bank CEOs and boards but also ASIC, the Bankers Association - and of course .... the politicians that they pretty much own and control. Everyone is affected - if people can't trust the government and the banks we really are done for.

The Banking Royal commission exposed the tip of the iceberg. Now is the time to push for reforms. This article gives you the tools you need to help get results. Political contact information - email addresses, phone & fax numbers. Plus policy positions that will change the finance sector and politics. If you want justice and a better future for your family work with us in an effective and coordinated campaign. It's a numbers game. A politician's main concern is keeping their seat. The aim here is to get MPs and Senators to publicly support policies that will benefit the people and country. Unless they publicly support you with speeches in the Parliament and media interviews they are not serious.

We have the power to turf them out. The number of people contacting them determines whether they take an issue seriously or not. Let's make 2019 the year we get justice.

Only Proper Remediation Will Show Banks Are Serious About Reform

Dr Evan Jones has recently commented on several cases Bank Reform Now has been assisting with. The Hayes and Uebergang cases raise very serious issues for Westpac. CEO Brian Hartzer wasn't at the bank when these issues surfaced  but he can read. When Westpac was on the edge of collapse drastic measures were part of the rescue response. It's all been detailed in Hansard and then Senator Paul McLean's book Bankers And Bastards. The Westpac Letters scandal showed how the bank's board and their lawyers operated. We know they broke the law. We know they destroyed lives and businesses. Colin Uebergang suffered as a direct result. It's not good enough to pretend the bankers were saints in the 90s. We all now know the truth.

AFCA May Yet Prove Useful

AFCA Chair Helen Coonan says community trust in the finance sector had been "shattered", with financial institutions causing "despair and hopelessness in many broken lives and broken businesses." If a key part of the economy profits from this type of crooked dealing with customers something is terribly wrong. If we have to remove one CEO after another so be it. Our sense of justice has not been tempered .... it's been honed razor sharp and it will be used to remove recalcitrant bankers, regulators and politicians. Justice has been delayed ..... it will  not be denied and it will be sweet.

The Australian Financial Complaints Authority is  making the right noises BUT it has built in limitations. Just like the Banking Code of Conduct and the Code Compliance monitoring apparatus it is rigged in favour of bankers. Victims of bank crimes have the deck stacked against them BUT Helen Coonan will serve a purpose that could help victims despite her hands being tied behind her back.

Morrison Gets A Miracle - Just....

Election surprise. The ALP has a real knack of choosing flawed characters to lead from opposition. Bill Shorten had baggage. The public never warmed to him or trusted him. Rudd's second coming relied on the party locking in the leader. What could go wrong?

NAB's adventure in the UK comes back to bite them

NAB's previous CEOs Andrew Thorburn and Cameron Clyne have serious questions to answer over the bank's dealing in the UK. Clydesdale and Yorkshire banks have been found to be engaged in dodgy dealings and the Australian head office at the time was up to its neck in it.

Citizens Are Shareholders In Australia. Time for some dividends

If properly implemented the three step SUMIR program would end poverty. Every person deserves a fair go to build a good life. Step 3 - The Triphasic Citizenship Dividend is the payoff. Pollies that support the elite can easily be identified - they will reject meaningful reform. They prefer business as usual - selling out the people and their country.

At Election 2019 Aussies can go for bold. We are identifying  candidates right now that support the SUMIR movement. Join in and end the age of exploitation.
