The True Story Behind The Bankers' Royal Commission

Nationals MP Barry O’Sullivan triggered the Royal Commission being called by Turnbull and Morrison but no politician was responsible. Bank reform was on the agenda thanks to brave whistleblowers and gutsy journalists like Jeff Morris and Adele Ferguson. Victims of bank misconduct and activists worked on the push to reform using everything they had. Social media, mainstream media and political contacts were worked tirelessly. The bankers saw what was coming and decided to put their inquiry up with their terms and their commissioner by using their Prime Minister and their Treasurer. Even though the Royal Commission was hobbled from the start it did serve a purpose... and everyone very well knows it covered up more than it exposed. This is an excerpt from Michael Roddan's book The People vs The Banks. The battle is still being waged and the people will win the war.

It is clear - politicians are protecting bankers

The Hayne RC and the Senate Access To Justice inquiry have dropped the ball. The only way banks can engage with clients in the heavy handed, deceptive, unconscionable and often criminal way that they do is thanks to a "justice" system that enables and allows them to get away with serious abuses. Any other business or individual that treated clients in the way the banks regularly do would see perpetrators fined and jailed. Yes - the abuses we have researched are that serious. Politicians and multiple inquires have been informed. So clearly the other protection required by banks is political. Therefore until people take political action to reform the system nothing will be achieved. Election 2019 is the time to take action.

Here we look at the weak recommendations from the Senate Access to Justice inquiry with contributions from the BRN Advisory Panel.

Jeff Morris Exposes The Ways Banks Lie

Jeff Morris is blowing the whistle even harder now. The Senate has been informed and anyone who reads Jeff's submission to the Access To Justice Inquiry will learn the truth about the way banks operate. Bank can no longer deny the bleeding obvious. BRN  has cases in front of all the major banks ... and they involve matters exposed by Jeff right here.

NAB Commits To Being A Model Litigant

All four major banks have now committed to becoming Model Litigants. NAB was the last to do so. Acting CEO Phil Chronican who will soon take over as Chairman of the bank's board was in the hot seat at the March 2019 House Economics Committee bank CEO grilling. He made it clear that the bank is committed to acting ethically, morally and fairly when dealing with clients where a dispute exists. This is a critical breakthrough in the quest for justice. Mr Chronican and other bankers have been given cases where the bank's lawyers most certainly did not act as Model Litigants.

Previous CEO Thorburn botched his chance to have the bank do the right thing. The new environment will see legacy cases properly settled and in the future bankers will be less likely to allow abuses to bring in profits.

ASIC Chief Tell Banking Summit - Trust Must Be Rebuilt

ASIC boss James Shipton is talking tough with calls to rebuild trust in the finance sector and for bankers to be fair in their dealings with clients. It shouldn't be so hard. All that is required is for ethical behaviour to become the norm. Bankers need to realise they don't deserve a disproportionate share of their client's and the nation's wealth. The fleecing must stop.

This is Shipton's speech to the AFR Banking and Wealth Summit. There are some choice points made. How serious is ASIC? Their time to prove themselves is pretty close to up.

Should Banks Be Profiting From Credit Creation?

Don't let this article slip by - you don't see this exposed in the mainstream media every day. The banks have been allowed by corrupt politicians to steal our wealth and freedoms. Adam Creighton revealed the way it's done before Hayne delivered his limited report. Spread this message far and wide. The system is corrupt and in need of structural reform. Join in with Bank Reform Now to get the job done. Stand - Unite - Make It Right.

Bank Of Queensland Has Debts To Pay - $20K To Call It Quits..?? No Way..!!

It's not just the big four banks that have been abusing their clients and the law. Second tier operations like Bank Of Queensland got off even lighter than the big banks. Bankers need to look at what even the impaired Royal Commission managed to do to AMP. Michael Sanderson is owed around $2 million after BOQ manipulated valuations to assist its asset stripping sting. Time for the bank to pay up. See story for important information re: valuation abuse; Equality of Arms; Model Litigant guidelines. It's a game changer.

NAB CEO's Office Scandal Exposes Banking

It is not just lack of judgement and poor governance in his own office. Rosemary Rogers also worked in Cameron Clyne's office. The real issue is this - if the CEO could not see crimes and misconduct in their own office it is not surprising that they may not have seen criminal cells working in the bank right around the country. We gave Mr Thorburn evidence of these crimes in October last year. He tried to cover it up with a dodgy mediation process ..... he will be looking for work very soon.

Will Hayne do what he was recruited to do? Almost certainly.

A beaut article summarising the possible findings of the Hayne banking Royal Commission. Well done Karen Maley from the AFR. Well worth a read but check out the BRN kicker at the end. All is not as it seems. For years both major parties allowed crime and corruption to fester in finance. It is time for bold new ideas.

The Bank Royal Commission Knows That We Know ....

CBA survivor, warrior and BRN friend Rory O'Brien makes the case ....... for some inexplicable reason the Royal Commission is covering up the CBA / Bankwest heist. BRN says that respect is earned. Judges and politicians do not deserves any respect (or votes) if they protect criminals in the finance sector. The RC and now QC Rowena Orr have been told .... they remain on the hook .... and will remain so until a proper investigation is completed. Read this powerful letter sent to Rowena Orr QC.

The RC must be made longer & stronger. Hayne's February report can be considered an interim report. The final report can wait until two or three independent commissioners conclude a more comprehensive and powerful investigation in one to two years. Sign our petition and we will give it to the Governor General and PM.
