SUMIR® Begins - Join BRN: Stand - Unite - Make It Right®

Election 2019 is our chance to show we are not falling for the two party run around again. Both major parties serve the elite. Both parties have had decades to make a big difference in bringing about a fair go for most of us. Right now most of us are sick of the games, lies and systemic corruption that infests two party politics here and in other nations.

Politicians who are stuck in the old ways of – vote buying – tax & spend sleight of hand manipulations – phony policies & promises – corrupt deal making with corporate donors – us versus them divisive politics – are just tinkering around the edges. Real reform requires bold, innovative and new thinking. That is what BRN's SUMIR program offers.

Did he ask for more power and time? He should have.

Commissioner Hayne took on a role that deliberately limited his chances of successfully exposing the serious misconduct and crimes bankers are engaging in and profiting from. While there are some good suggestions for reforms in his report - he is really tinkering around the edges. While many in the media are keen to analyse what he has come up with - the real story is what he didn't look at.

Here we present some opinions re: his work but we also are keen to consider the areas that were not properly investigated ... or ignored. There is more work to do if Australians want a finance system that exists to serve their interests. That is a very different beast to the one that Hayne has been investigating.

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 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.

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?

Election 2019 - Kick Out The Lambs

Wolves in sheep's clothing infest our government. Australia and its people are being robbed. Politicians and the major parties are facilitating the theft of our incomes, freedoms, resources and other assets. Farms, businesses, lives - all being stolen. Election 2019 is our opportunity to force new policies onto the agenda. Whoever wins any election must understand that they serve us ... not the party, not the elite and not themselves.

Major Parties? Give 'em the FLICK!!

The major parties have failed. They have had decades to bring about genuine reforms to decrease corruption and increase the well being of citizens. It is now clear to most that our democracy is being abused. The major parties serve elite and often foreign interests. Dodgy trade deals. Selling off our land and businesses. Seeing housing become unaffordable ..... all signs of something being terribly wrong. It's time to break out of the two party double-cross.

 Major Parties Don't Deserve Your Vote

Election 2019 has some bright and caring people running with minor parties or as independents. The ones listed here support new ideas. They care about our country being sold out and ripped off. They want crooked bankers jailed and their victims compensated. We need good people in government before it's too late. The two party charade has reached its use by date. Let's see them each get less than a 30% primary vote. There are plenty of good alternatives. Election 2019 - It's our turn to win.

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.

BRN Election Action Plan - Time To Work Together

The major parties do not serve the people's interests. Many of us are sick of being lied to and robbed by politicians and the corporations that own them. It's time to unite and demand new ideas for reform and justice. The people have the power. At Election 2019 we really must use it wisely.

Politicians don't read emails .... they count them. That's why an avalanche of emails demanding action to end corruption, bring in bank reform and other key policies will have an effect.

This action plan has tools including databases of all candidates' - emails / phone numbers / career experience - powerful stuff to help you get a commitment from the candidates.
